Down Home is coming this Sunday!
We are excited to welcome the gospel group Down Home to Hamilton CRC this Sunday (Dec. 20) at 6pm! They will be sharing the Good News of salvation in Jesus through their wonderful music. Here is an excerpt from their website-
Good old gospel songs, old hymns and traditional harmonies, that’s the sound of Down Home Gospel Ministries. And ministry is the key word. This band formed in the summer of 1986 and began ministering in the West Michigan area in January 1987. For 28 years, Down Home has been carrying the gospel message all over Michigan, as well as surrounding states. They have ranged west as far as Iowa and east into New York, from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and into Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. Churches, city parks, High School gyms, county fairs, music festivals, campgrounds, county jails and state prisons have provided the setting for this group to sound forth their unique musical style.
Although their love for music is apparent, their love for Jesus is the driving force in their lives. Each concert or service is built upon the foundation of evangelism and brings out the message of salvation through Christ. Their desire is to touch the hearts of the people with God’s love and to bring a word of encouragement to all. Many have come to salvation, and found the love, peace and healing that only Jesus can bring, through the ministry of these men.
They are always available for personal prayer and ministry in order to see the needs of everyone met through the power of Jesus. The music ranges from the hard driving, upbeat, banjo pickin’, fiddle ringin’ country gospel, to the mellow easy flowing, guitar strumming hymns, all laced with the unique bluegrass style that is their distinction. Their name “DOWN HOME” reflects their personalities and attitudes and the ease in which they become a part of your family.
So open your hearts to receive all that God has for you, while you enjoy the sounds of Down Home!
