Pella — A entreat and concert will be hosted by Bible League Volunteers who are celebrating their 50th anniversary at Third Reformed Church in Pella on Sept. 13. Those interested can attend both concert and retreat or they can choose one or the other - whatever works best for you.
Journey Bound Quartet has been bringing southern Gospel music to audiences around the upper Midwest for nearly 20 years. God has used this popular group's ministry of music to bring the message of salvation to the lost. They bring encouragement, hope, and inspiration to thousands of Christians who love the Lord and desire to live more fully to His glory. Men and women of all ages are invited to attend this incredible concert at 7 p.m. The concert is free. There will be a free will offering for Bible League International.
Marilyn Laszlo has lived 24 years in a jungle village translating God's Word for people who had never had a written language, let alone a verse of the Bible. Since then, Marilyn has been a sought-after speaker for conferences and retreats. With a twinkle in her eye and a mischievous smile, she recounts times when she heard God's call, argued with Him about who's in charge, ate grubs, and witnessed miracles. As good as her stories about her past are, the best part is what the Lord is doing today in the lives of people with whom Marilyn interacts. You might see her one minute on stage in front of thousands of teenagers, later listening to the fears and dreams of a young girl, and then quietly praying with her. Marilyn continues to seek God's guidance and to follow Him in new ways. What makes her so special is that she doesn't think she is special. She believes she's just an ordinary person who serves an extraordinary God.
