Lamar Lighthouse Camp

concert series kicks off Sunday

MILL HALL — Lamar Lighthouse Camp is opening their 2019 Summer Concert Season this Sunday, June 9 with Chapter Vll Gospel who are new to the Camp concerts.

Chapter Vll has been singing for 43 years. The mission of Chapter Vll is to spread God’s Word through music. They believe that God has called all Christians to be fishers of men. Music is their way of casting their line.

The prayer of Chapter Vll is that God will use their abilities to bring more people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Everyone is welcome to see Chapter Vll, welcome them to Clinton County and support Lamar Lighthouse Camp. The concert begins at 7 p.m. and is free.

Since a new Tabernacle has not been built yet, the concerts will be held at Cedar Heights Brethren in Christ Church, 37 Cedar Heights, Mill Hall.

Lamar Camp is grateful for Cedar Heights’ hospitality and generosity.

For further information, please contact Janis Heiser at 570-660-6008.
