Chief Pastor Lacy K. Sykes, Jr. and Cross Word Christian Church is pleased to host a CONCERT with THE AFRICAN CHILDREN’S CHOIR this coming Sunday, December 13th at 4:00 p.m.
This event is open to the public – everyone is welcome.
ABOUT THE CHOIR. The African Children’s Choir has been working with the most vulnerable children in Africa for 25 years, raising awareness of the plight of Africa’s orphaned and abandoned, but also showing the beauty, dignity and potential of each African child. They are a voice for the millions of children suffering in Africa.
What Is Their Concert Like? The children melt the hearts of audiences with their charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dances. The concert will feature well-loved children’s songs, traditional spirituals and contemporary tunes. Nearly every performance is concluded with a thunderous standing ovation.
In spite of the tragedy that has marred their young lives, the children are radiant with hope, musically gifted and wonderfully entertaining.
You will see the hope, dignity and beauty of Africa!
What Is The Purpose Of The Tour? The primary goal of the Choir is to raise awareness of the need of destitute and orphaned children in Africa and to raise funds for continued development and support of the African Children’s Choir Programs.
The Choir’s international educational endeavor provides unique training for the children. Once Choir members have completed a concert tour, they will return to their homelands with the tools necessary for bettering their future. For more information on the choir, visit www.africanchildrenschoir.com
A free-will offering will be taken to help provide education, care and emergency relief for over 7,000 children in Uganda, Rwanda, Nigeria, Ghana, Southern Sudan, Kenya and South Africa.
Cross Word Christian Church is located at 14950 Riverside Drive, Riverside, California 92518 (just east of March Air Reserve Base at Riverside & Meyer Drive).
