Gospel singers and House of Grace recording artists, Les Snyder and Sons of The Father, will be performing their music live! Their music is distinctive, using acappella and sound tracks, varying from the traditional hymn to progressive gospel styles.

 

In an era when families are splintered, this father and his two sons, all three ordained ministers, give an example of one family which has endured into adulthood, ministering together for their Lord and Savior. The group name says it all - they are truly Sons of The (Heavenly) Father. Sons of The Father- seen regularly on television and heard on the radio throughout the country- have recorded over 20 times in the twenty-six years. “Traveling On,” their latest recording, includes eight songs written by Brent Snyder, the baritone of the group.

 

Pastor Roger Lipe invites the public to attend this service. For more information, call the church office at the number listed above.
