Strong schools are supported by the communities they serve…and regarding Southwest High School in Brookside, I believe the strongest support has come from it’s neighbor, Wornall Road Baptist Church. Led by Pastor John Mark Clifton, the members of this church have reached out to the families and students at Southwest for the past three years.
Through their generosity, this congregation has provided:
*all meals for the football and basketball teams, including a spring sports awards banquet
*uniforms for the track team
*coaches for cheerleading team
*emergency assistance for victimized students
John tells me the students and families are so very grateful for everything the church provides, and his members feel they get back so much more from the kids than they give.
And in order to fund all of these special services, Wornall Road Baptist Church hosts a bluegrass concert each year to raise money for their efforts. This year’s show is Sunday July 20, 2014 at 7pm and features Grammy nominated and Hall of Fame member Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver.
Here’s your chance to see an excellent bluegrass show, in an intimate setting (only 400 seats!) and show your support for the Church’s local mission. Tickets are very reasonably priced at $10 and $15, and are available online at www.eventbrite.com (search for Doyle Lawson) or at the church on Sundays from 9:15-10:15am. Prior to the show, there will be food trucks, live music, games and classic cars on display outside beginning at 5pm.
When making your weekend plans, join the members for the Wornall Road Baptist Church for an evening of lively bluegrass music. All are welcome!
