The fifth annual Hymns for the Hungry will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on July 26 at Lighthouse Church.
This will be the first year for the event to move to a different “host” church, as Lighthouse Assembly of God Church welcomes the event.
Jarae Scruggs, event organizer said the decision was made by the First United Methodist Church Committee that founded Hymns for the Hungry ask different churches to play host in order to save on the cost of renting a facility.
This will enable more of the profit to go to “God’s Table,” the food ministry sponsored by First Freewill Baptist Church. God’s Table feeds hungry citizens six days a week, with sometimes as many as 50 to 60 people a day taking a meal.
Admission will be $1. Enjoy a meal deal for $5 which will include a hot dog, chips and a drink. Dessert of a variety of cookies will be available for a donation.
Churches to be represented at Wednesday’s event will include: Calvary Baptist, Central Baptist, First Freewill Baptist, First United Methodist, Freedom Life, Lighthouse Assembly of God, Montague Holiness, Nocona Hills, Old Country Church, Seventh Day Adventist, Stoneburg Baptist Church and Victor Baptist.
Scruggs said this is the largest group of participants performing music the event has seen in its five years.
