New Song tour coming to Pine

An unforgettable cultural music and missions event comes to Pine on Friday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, 4039 N. Highway 87 in Pine. A New Song International is on tour in 2007, celebrating their tenth anniversary. You won't want to miss this sensational concert with the singing group, A New Song International, a ministry of Friendship International Ministries, which is an American-based organization in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which works primarily in Central/Eastern Europe and Chile, South America.

The members of this group come to us, direct from Chile. Garbed in national dress and playing traditional musical instruments, the first part of A New Song's concern, in addition to the special singing and music, will be sharing about their country and culture. The second half will focus on the tremendous way that God has been working in their country and the challenges of being a witness for the Lord. Many who have heard the message of A New Song have comments that it was truly a breath of fresh air and a shining light to those who are searching for hope and peace, in the midst of their stress and despair.

A New Song's purpose is to be an encouragement and challenge to their listening audience. This year's concert theme is "Give Him Praise."

All are invited to attend this free cultural music and missions event. There will be a free-will offering taken a the end of the concert. For more information, call (928) 476-3552.
