Burlington UMC hosts battle of the praise bands

By on February 19, 2009

The Burlington United Methodist Church will host four groups on Sunday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m., for a fundraiser benefiting the Burlington UMC mission trip to help repair homes in Appalachia.

The “Saving Grace” singers from Burlington UMC will head up the show, followed by “Beacon” of Epworth UMC, Elgin, “Joyful Noise” from Kaneville UMC, Kaneville, and then the old time gospel acoustic sounds of “The Good Ol’ Boys,” hailing from the Country Covenant Church in Plato Center. It will be a great show for folks of all ages.

Tickets are $10 at the door at the Burlington United Methodist Church, 195 W Center St., Burlington. All proceeds will go toward a mission trip with the Appalachia Service Project to Kentucky to repairs people’s homes. See them at www.asphome.org.
