Old Time Gospel Hour
August 26, 2018 - 4:00 p.m.
Ondra Farmer, Music Director
Southern Gospel music probably had its genesis in the Southeastern United States. The lyrics express personal or communal faith. The music was usually four-part harmony. It originated in the late 19th century from musical traditions of white musicians from the south. The Southern Gospel music of today remains more “country” than city and more “down home” than pretentious.
Beginning on August 12 and continuing throughout the month, Southern Gospel music will be the focus of our choir anthems and special worship music. Then on August 26th at 4:00 PM, the choir will lead an “Old Time Gospel Hour” program. We will have congregational singing and choir specials that will keep toes tapping and hands clapping! We are looking forward to a great choir of Aldersgate members and their guests.
Following the program, we will have a sandwich and ice cream supper in the Fellowship Hall. Please bring sandwiches chips, and cookies to share. We will also have homemade ice cream. If you can make a freezer of ice cream, please contact Ondra Farmer as soon as possible.
Please be here during the month of August for some “Good Old Gospel Music” and this
special evening program!
