An Evening with Fanny Crosby

Mar 2, 2020 (updated on Mar 2, 2020)

Spring is finally on the horizon! It's so good to see the grass start turning green and life coming back to central Illinois!

We have some exciting events coming up that we want you to put on your calendar:

This year mark's the 200th birthday of America's most prolific hymn writer, Fanny J. Crosby. She is the author of more than 8,000 hymns, including "To God be the Glory," "He Hideth My Soul," "Redeemed," "Tell Me the Story of Jesus," and "Blessed Assurance." To celebrate this occasion, and the Lord's work through her life, the GospelFest Singers will be presenting our "An Evening with Fanny Crosby" program twice over the next few weeks.

Saturday, March 21, 7:00pm - Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, IL

Saturday, April 4, 7:00pm - Crossroads UMC, Washington, IL

Through these programs, we'll tell her amazing life story (including being blind from 6 weeks of age and being the first woman to speak before both houses of Congress!) while weaving in many of her beloved hymns. If you love worshipping with the hymns of the church, please plan on joining us! These are free events and a love offering will be taken.
