Bloomington will be getting a special treat this fall. Around 40 college students who are part of a traditional Salvation Army brass band or vocal ensemble will be visiting Bloomington November 13-15, 2009. Hosted by The Salvation Army of Monroe County, this group will be sharing with the community in several ways including nursing home visitation, neighborhood outreach, a community concert, and leading worship on Sunday morning.
The band and vocal ensemble is comprised of college students from Asbury Collegein Wilmore, Kentucky. Many have grown up in The Salvation Army church and participate in these music groups as a way of sharing the musical talent God has given them. Bloomington Corps officers, Jonathan and Catherine Fitzgerald, are alumni of this group and know personally how their ministry shares God’s love in a special way.
The band will be performing at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church on Saturday, November 14th, at 7:00 PM. The concert is completely free. You will not want to miss this rare and special treat!
