Keepers of the Faith at Lake City Community Church

By Evelyn Twomey

Gospel singers and recording artists, Keepers of the Faith, will be singing at Lake City Community Church (8810 Lawndale Ave SW, Lakewood) on September 7, 2014 at 5 PM. These men of God travel around North America telling their story of redemption. At one time they did a prison ministry. In one day 200 inmates gave their lives to Jesus. The people of our community, especially our young men, will benefit from their music and testimonies. Questions? Call 253-582-8040. The nursery will be available with free day care for kids 5 years and younger.
