6th Annual Love Your Neighbor Benefit Concert

I look forward to this event every year. It’s hosted at my church and features great musical guests supporting a different cause each year. This is a great family event, but make sure to arrive early!


Hosted by Jason Ingram and Brandon Heath with special guests Tobymac and Mandisa, all donations from the concert will go to New Hope Academy, a privately-funded grade school in Franklin which serves low-income families with free tuition for its classical education. No tickets needed—a love offering will be taken.

Date: Tuesday, May 28, 2012
Time: 7:00 pm.  Doors open at 6:15 pm.
Location: Fellowship Bible Church Worship Center – 1210 Franklin Road, Brentwood

Whether you’ve been packing Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes for a long time, or if you’ve just begun making it a part of your Christmas tradition, you may have wondered what happens to the children who receive the shoe boxes. Oksana Nelson, a graduate student at Lipscomb University, received a shoe box as a child living in a Russian orphanage. A year later, she was adopted by an American family. Today she tells her story of what the OCC shoe box meant to her, sharing how you too can make a difference in the life of a child.

This month, Oksana will be speaking in the Middle Tennessee area at these locations:

Thursday, September 27, 2012
7:00 p.m.
Crievewood Baptist Church
480 Hogan Road
Brentwood, TN 37027


Saturday, September 29, 2012
10:30 a.m.
River Rock Baptist Church
2248 Highway 99
Murfreesboro, TN 37128

2012 materials will also be distributed at this fun kick-off event for OCC! I hope you will make plans to attend and hear Oksana’s testimony!
