Keepers of the Faith June 29
Keepers of the Faith will perform at Tucker Road Baptist Church, 1455 Tucker Road, on Saturday, June 29 beginning at 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome, and light refreshments will be served.
According to a press release, the group is made of five vocalists “who love to serve God with their talents of singing.
“Keepers of the Faith is probably the most diverse Southern Gospel Quartet you’ll ever meet,” continues the press release. The group has been in ministry for more than 15 years, started out as a prison ministry team that would “visit brothers and sisters locked and shunned from society. Their roots also consist of visiting hospitals and singing for every room that would want the uplifting of good old harmony singing … The Keepers of the Faith Ministry sing, preach and, most importantly, live the Gospel of the Jesus Christ. It is their prayer and hope that you see the reflection of Christ within every aspect of their ministry.”

A summer kids’ event, “Roar VBS,” will be hosted at Wy’east Community Church July 8-12 from 9 a.m. to noon. The event is free.
“Kids discover that God is good even when life gets wild!” said a press release. “Kids experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and test out sciencey-fun gizmos they’ll take home and play with all summer long. Plus, kids learn to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings.”
Each day concludes with a Safari Celebration that gets everyone involved in living what they’ve learned, said the press release. Family members and friends are encouraged to join this special time at 11:30 a.m. The event is for kids ages 5-12. Preregister at or call 541-993-6777 or 541-354-1063.
