Christian music concert set for July 5

"Praise God!" is the theme and plan for at least one event for the official North Carolina 4th of July Festival in Southport on Saturday, July 5.

Nash Street will be closed from Howe Street to City Hall for a youth-led concert beginning at 7 p.m. featuring The Aaron Wagner Band from Dallas, Texas, and Brunswick County’s own Wendy Jones. These two gospel artists will lead an evening of music with a positive message for all ages.

There is no charge to attend this event. A love offering will be taken.

“This will be a 4th of July event like no other,” said coordinator Erik Hufham, whose idea for the festival came from a Bible study class.

“It is really amazing how everything has come together to make this whole thing possible. In fact, our first thought was, ‘we can never do this on our own.’ Then we realized we didn’t have to. God was planning it from the start. All we had to do was get on board.”

All churches and youth groups are welcome to participate in this event.

Bring a chair and plan to enjoy this evening of Christian music for the family.

“With a main stage, refreshments and a festival atmosphere for all to enjoy, this will be an evening to remember,” Hufham said.

Contact Hufham at 457-0363 for more information.
