National recording artist Mark Bishop performed a live concert of
Holiday and Gospel music on Sunday, November 25th in the St. John’s Family
Life Center. Mark’s music is both entertaining and touching. His songs make you
smile, clap, sing along, and some songs bring a tear to your eye. The Kentucky
native has developed into one of the most prolific songwriters in Gospel music.
In addition to his ten Top 10 songs, his songs have been recorded by noted
performers on programs such as the Grand Ole Opry and The Bill Gaither
Homecoming series. Mark has earned a DOVE Award as well as numerous other
awards. All of his music is encouraging and insightful, and has something for
everyone from the youngest to the oldest. The two-hour concert had a brief
intermission with refreshments and time to meet Mark. Mark has already
expressed interest in returning to St. John’s for another concert. Information
on future concerts and events will be posted on this web page.
The Kingery Family Concert 9/9/12
The Kingery Family performed a live concert of Bluegrass and Christian
music on Sunday, September 9th in the St. John’s Family Life Center.
This concert was highly anticipated because they had performed a few years ago
to rave reviews. The twelve-member
Atwater Minnesota family entertained us with their uplifting spirituals,
soulful ballads and beautiful harmonies. Their level of talent has definitely increased since their last
visit! Music has been an influence in
the Kingery Family for many years, beginning with piano lessons for the girls
when they were young, with other instruments added to the family over the
years. Most members of the family play
multiple instruments extremely well. The
two-hour concert had a brief intermission with refreshments and time to visit
with the family. It’s safe to say that
because of their popularity, the Kingery Family will make more trips to St.
John’s. Information on future concerts can be found on this web page or by
calling the Church Office.
The Ball Brothers Concert 5/6/12
National recording artists, The Ball Brothers performed a live concert on Sunday, May 6th in the St. John’s Family Life Center. This was probably the best concert we’ve ever had. The Ball Brothers are four real-life brothers from Georgia who totally entertained both young and old with their energetic, uplifting, southern gospel music with a unique blend of harmony. With their mix of new songs and familiar favorites, the quartet was a tremendous hit with everyone. The Ball Brothers have appeared on the Ernie Haas & Signature Sound Summer Tour, as well as appearances on the extremely popular Gaither Homecoming Video Series. In 2010 The Ball Brothers were nominated for Horizon Group of the year by the Singing News, and their “Breakthrough” CD was nominated for album of the year by Southern Gospel News. The two hour concert had a brief intermission with refreshments and time to meet the brothers. We’re already planning a return engagement by the Ball Brothers sometime in the future.
