The 2nd Annual Concert in the Rome Park featuring the musical duo, Commandment 11 will be held Sunday, August 22 from 4 to 8 p.m. The event is a great opportunity for fellowship as the community gets to know their neighbors better.
The local churches in the northeast Bradford area will again host the event, and invite the community to come and enjoy food, activities and music. Churches and various Christian organizations in the area will have tables set up to share their ministries and outreach opportunities. If you are part of an organization and would like to share your ministry, contact Peggy Hughes at 247-7774.
The featured musicians that comprise Commandment 11 travel across the country sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. As songwriters and music missionaries, Scott Jacobs and Philip Robinson have committed themselves to composing music that is bathed in scripture, but remains relative enough musically to reach a broad audience of listeners. According to Scott, “There is so much music out there for people to listen to based on somebody else’s advice or life experience, and while there might not be a thing wrong with that, we want our music to express God’s advice for us and the lifestyle and love of Jesus.”
Commandment 11 is a non-profit organization that operates entirely on faith. Over the first four years of their ministry, the majority of their engagements were at churches and youth events. While that remains a vital part of their ministry, they have felt a new directive to go into prisons and recovery centers to let inmates and addicts know that there is forgiveness and cleansing available to them through the Cross of Jesus Christ. Philip adds, “It’s thrilling to be at a place in ministry where you can actively see the Lord leading and know what you are doing is being ordained by God. It is incredible joy to experience God’s spirit working in some of the lowliest of places and to see men filled with despair find hope in Christ. ”
A free will offering will be taken to help support their ministry. Parking will be at the Rome Presbyterian Church. Bring a lawn chair or blanket. In case of rain, an indoor site will be announced.
