Then Sings My Soul: Beloved Hymns & Songs inspired by the ministry of Billy Graham

The Red Caboose Motel & Restaurtant | website | Ronks, false 17572 event website

Sunday, August 19 | 3PM & 7PM

Featuring 4 professional vocalists from the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area, "Then Sings My Soul" highlights inspiring hymns of faith and devotion often sung at Billy Graham's famous Crusades. With the recent passing of Dr. Graham in February of this year, "Then Sings My Soul" highlights historical moments in Reverend Graham's ministry and includes a look at the history behind some of the most famous hymns - many of which were written as a result of tragic and trying circumstances. Featuring favorites such as In the Garden, It is Well with My Soul, Every Time I Feel the Spirit and Just As I Am, we hope to spread joy and encouragement amidst today's often broken world. We'll even have an old-fashioned hymn sing, just like in the "good old days"!

A free-will offering will be taken during the performance and will be donated to The Billy Graham Library Endowment in memory of Dr. Graham.
