Alanna Story coming to First Baptist for free concert

GREENSBURG – Growing up in a very musical home, sisters Ally West and Anna Hodge have had a heart for the Lord and for music since they were very young.

Over the years, God shaped that calling in both of them and surrounded them with incredible musicians who share the same heart for worship. Literally a family, Anna and Ben Hodge, Ally and Stephen West, and Joel Burkhead value authenticity on and off the stage, fight for unity with each other and with Lord, and create a powerful atmosphere for others to encounter God.

After releasing two LP albums, Keep Breathing (2009), and Flickering Spark (2011), and one EP, Just Offshore (2013), the band is humbled to watch God expand their territory and place fresh vision in their hearts. “The music that is emerging right now is reaching straight to the heart of our purpose as worshippers of the one true God. I am bursting with excitement to share these revelations with His church,” says Ally. As both worship leaders and original artists, Alanna Story’s main pursuit remains to love God and lead others into His presence. “I believe the Lord is depositing songs in this season that will bring healing and deeper revelation,” says Ally. “The earth is waking up and it is such a joy to be in the midst of what God is doing through music and worship.”

The band, Alanna Story, will be in concert at the First Baptist Church, Greensburg at 6:37 p.m. Saturday, May 17. This concert is free to the public. A free-will offering will be received with proceeds going to the Agape Center of Greensburg. No tickets are required. Please come and join us for this worship event. For more information, visit
