On Saturday, July 31, Highpoint Orchard will be abuzz with the sound of Gospel music as it hosts a benefit concert.
The Gospel Fest planned this weekend will benefit a youth mission trip to Nairobi, Kenya, owner Karen Cyman explained. Adam Tindall, a St. Paul native, is a 21-year-old senior at Anderson University who is taking a mission trip to Africa to assist children in Nairobi, Kenya, Cyman continued. It is this trip that the concert will help to make possible.
"Randy (Cyman) and I are proud to help with such a great cause," she said.
The free concert will include Rejoice from Decatur County. From Shelby County will come For His Sake, Erica and Michelle Cole and Shelby Idol John Thompson. Hamilton County will be represented by Josh Sadlon and The West 40 Gospel Group. With time and music donated, a nominal fee for snacks and food will help to send Tindall to bring the Vacation Bible School experience to Kenyan children, Cyman noted.
Tindall hopes to take illustrated children's Bibles published by US Books to the children of Nairobi, Kenya, and they will be on sale at the event. Guests are welcome to purchase the Bibles as gifts or to purchase them to be donated to the cause. Regardless the reason for purchase, US Books, Cyman said, will donate one book for every two purchased. Monetary donations will also be accepted to contribute to the cause.
The event will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday at Highpoint Orchard, located north of Greensburg on Old Hwy. 421, and guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket to ensure their comfort throughout the concert.
