The former Director of Contemporary Music at the First United Methodist Church of Crystal Lake has started a Christian band called Elevate.
My wife and I were privileged to hear them at the Raue Center right before we went on vacation.
Here’s the invitation on his web site from Vern Strade to attend Sunday worship at his farm:
Christian Worship, Prayer, & Praise on the Farm
Join us Sunday mornings at 10:00am from May 27th through October 28th for a contemporary Christian worship, prayer, and praise service.
Many inspirational speakers and excellent musicians will be featured during the summer.
Our services are non-denominational.
Come worship with us in a beautiful outdoor setting for an inspirational experience you will cherish.
Hear exciting testimonials from everyday people about how God is working in their lives.
Free coffee and Stade’s fresh homemade donuts will be provided.
Please contact us if you or your church would like to participate in leading an outdoor service.
We look forward to worshiping with you!
Pastor Doug Listons will lead service on July 29th. He pastors Joyful Harvest Church (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America), whose regular services are held at 5050 N. Johnsburg Road (the corner of Johnsburg and Ringwood Roads) in Johnsburg.
