We have a special opportunity to host a travelling Christian artist. Brent Vernon is a singer, song writer, ventriloquist, performer and author of children’s books. He was coming through Kansas, has Presbyterian connections, and reached out to us for this concert venue. Because his availability coincided with our church anniversary, we jumped at the chance to host. Brent says, “Each of my concerts is a potpourri of energetic, challenging and Hope-filled music.” We will promote the event in Gardner and surrounding areas. We hope to welcome guests of all ages into the sanctuary to enjoy the show. The show is family friendly. Sam is especially popular with children. The concert is free and open to the public, with a free will offering and CD/book sales. Be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, August 11, and invite friends and family.
