We played for an audience of a variety of ages, some of John G.’s Fantasticks cast/crew came and a number of friends, family and Hope church members were there. This was a great last concert and an encouraging one for the band!
We played at a sweet coffee house, Jerimiah Joe’s, downtown and provided an opportunity for the youth in Andrea’s church to have an outreach and invite friends to the concert. One girl in the audience rededicated her life to the Lord, and we had a chance to pray for some who had family who were not walking with God or who were not Christians themselves
We were on the stage in their all-purpose room/gym with full lights and a curtain. While most of the audience came from Kurtis’ church there were some who came because of the large article in the local newspaper! Two people accepted Christ and the church will be able to follow up with them!
This was a flea market/farmers’ market with a small audience that pretty much went back to their booths or to shopping. It was a bit hard to connect with people after the concert, but we were able to leave a good impression on the host at the market . . . and some of us were able to have family and friends from the area come to see the concert. Joey and Mary Alice got to talk with a man who is an ice-cream vendor and show him love and care and interest and spoke about the Lord.
We had an awesome host — the manager of the McDonalds! This newly-renovated McDonalds was a great venue for the CSU area. Many Campus Crusade new staff used our concert as a venue to complete some of their Worldview Surveys with people who were listening. We helped minister to our host as she wants to bring more bands to play there and we made a good first impression as her first band to do a concert there!
