Wasepi Bluegrass Gospel Singers

Sunday, October 25 at 4:00 PM

North Dover United Methodist Church

The Wasepi Bluegrass Gospel Singers, a bluegrass Gospel group, will be presenting a concert at the North Dover United Methodist Church on Sunday, October 25, at 4:00 PM.  The church is located north of Wauseon, OH on State Rt. 108, 2 miles north of Ohio Turnpike Exit 34 and the Fulton County Fairgrounds.

The Wasepi Bluegrass Gospel Singers have been singing since 1974.  They started by singing in their home church, the Wasepi Mennonite Chapel, in Wasepi, MI as the Wasepi Singers.  Other churches and organizations began calling them to sing and they became known as the Wasepi Bluegrass Gospel Singers.  From the beginning, their goal has been to promote the Gospel.  Their services include singing, testifying, and the joy of the Lord.

The group includes wonderful singers and musicians who play guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, dobro, and doghouse bass.  Come at 4:00 PM, Sunday, October 25, to be blessed with their music.  There is no admission charge.  A freewill offering will be taken.  For more information, please call 419.923.4111.

Thanks to all those who came to the Gleaning Saturday at Hoen's Orchard on such a cool, brisk morning. Thank for the 9,948 pounds in our truck.
