Tribute Quartet Returns to Southdale

Tribute QuartetSouthdale is pleased to welcome the Tribute Quartet back to Anderson for our annual Pastor Appreciation Concert and Dinner on Sunday, October 20,.  The concert will be during the 10:30 am worship service, and an all-church pitch-in dinner will follow the concert.

Tribute’s love for southern gospel music is surpassed only by their love for Jesus Christ, and their heart for the Gospel shines through in their music and personality.  Whether it is the lead singer, Gary Castro’s, heartwarming stories or the rich sense of humor of their baritone and piano player, Josh Singletary, you will fall in love with this group’s ministry.

In 2008 they were  voted “The 2008 Horizon Group of the Year” by readers of the The Singing News Magazine at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, just a few months after being named the SGN’s “2008 Breakthrough Artist of the Year.”  And the awards don’t stop there.  Their song “Homecoming Day” won the 2013 Absolutely Gospel Music award for Best Song of the Year, and their single “Good News From Jerusalem” was #1 on Singing News’ Southern Gospel chart for August 2013.

Crisis Care Kits for Oklahoma Storm Victims

One of the primary ways the Church of the Nazarene reacts in times of natural disaster is with disaster response teams coordinated through Nazarene Disaster Response (NDR) and Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM). These first responders head into storm ravaged areas to help with clean up and first wave response. And they take with them Crisis Care Kits designed to supply storm victims with basic hygiene items to get them through the first days after a disaster.

Southdale’s Nazarene Disaster Response coordinator, Bob Misner, will be taking Southdale’s NDR trailer to Oklahoma to assist in response efforts with NDR and NCM.  The trailer is equipped with tools necessary to assist with clean up efforts, but we want to fill up every remaining space in the trailer with Crisis Care Kits to be used in the recovery.  To fill the trailer, we are planning to pack Crisis Care Kits this Saturday morning from 9:00 – 11:00 AM.

To accomplish this mission, we need to things from you:

  1. We need your help.  Join us Saturday from 9-11 to help pack kits.
  2. We need your donations.  Even if you can’t help pack the kits, you can bring the supplies necessary to fill the kits to the church. See the list of items for the kits below.
