It might be a little hard to believe the weather forecasts for Sunday sitting and reading this following an unpredicted four-inch rainfall on Thursday, but it looks like the sun will be shining on the Monroe County Courtyard for Sunday’s Albia Ministerial benefit music festival.

It’s been a couple of years since Praise (some call them worship) bands in the area have gathered to raise funds for the Albia Ministerial Association. The last time was at the King Opera House (which is where Sunday’s concert will be held should the weather become rainy).

If the weather is good, the concert will begin at 4 p.m. on the bandstand on the square. A freewill offering will be taken with 100 percent of the proceeds to the Albia Ministerial emergency office, located at the Trinity Family Life Center. The office is staffed by volunteers and provides money to people who are in need of food, shelter and essentials.

Each of the groups performing will do four to six songs.

The bands that will perform include Georgia Justified, featuring Albians Tony and Autumn Denato, Kevin Maughan and Eric Vos and Ottumwan Tyler Ryan. They will be performing “Lord I'm Ready Now,” “This is Amazing Grace,” “Sing Alleluia,” “Take Me In,” “Alive,” and “Jesus Loves Me.”

The Trinity United Methodist worship team includes Russ Parker, Kevin Maughan, Missy Smith, Dave and Jan Paxton, J.D. Henderson, Abbey Henderson and Terri Bender. They will perform, “Today is the Day,” “Revelation Song,” “My Redeemer Lives,” “Build Your Kingdom Here,” and “All Who are Thirsty.”

The Cornerstone Community Church worship band includes Mike Ogle, Carrie Selby, John Williams, A.J. Williams, Pam Selby, Christina DeMoss, Christian Williams, Richard and Diane Silva, who will sing “Shout to the Lord” in both Spanish and English. Other songs included, “We Can’t Deny,” “Let God Arise,” “Friend of Sinners,” “Beautiful Name,” and “Jesus You’re Worth.”

The Gate Community Church will be represented by Dustin, Katrina and Leslie Sample, Addyson O’Brien, Lee Towe and Rob Shelker. They will perform “No Longer Slaves,” “Victor’s Crown,” “Soul on Fire,” and “My Light House.”

While most of the music performed will be Christian contemporary, Darren and Kara Manson and their Fine Line Bluegrass Band will be doing a set of Bluegrass gospel music.

Morgan Henderson will also perform “Trust in You.”

The church community in Monroe County is reminded that this weekend the King Opera House is showing the faith-based movie “All Saints.” Sunday’s showing is at 2 p.m. and those attending could walk from the theater to the bandstand to enjoy the outdoor concert for the Ministerial Association.

Those attending are also encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs.
