Christian Reformed Conference Grounds would like to invite you to “Journey On” fundraising dinner and concert on
Saturday, April 28. The evening of fellowship, food and worship will begin at 6 pm with punch bowl, then a dinner of braised BBQ beef and chicken will begin at 6:30 with the concert to follow. The concert will feature dueling pianos by local favorites Kristin Bedeweg and Kurt Vander Schuur, along with the vocal talent of MacKenzie Segard and Casey Huls. This fundraiser is an effort to get the CRC Grounds director, Mike Perton, who has committed to walk the Appalachian Trail in an effort to raise funds for debt reduction, out on the trail! The dinner is sponsored by two anonymous donors which means every dollar that is pledged and donated will go 100% toward debt reduction. If you would like to host a table contact the office at 616.842.4478. Or you may call to reserve a seat at a table. Seating is limited. To learn more about the concert or Mike’s hike please visit the website at www.crcg.org.
