We will be joining in on a couple of songs with our choir at the Grapevine Baptist Church in Madisonville, Kentucky as they present The Living Cross. The presentation will take place on Saturday night, April 3 at 6:00 pm (CT) and again on Easter Sunday morning, April 4 at 10:45 am (CT). The church is located at 85 Sandcut Road. From the Pennyrile Parkway (I-69), you will take Exit 42 (Madisonville/Earlington). If you are coming from the south heading north, at the end of the ramp you will turn right and go back under the parkway. You will turn right on the next road and stay on that road until you come to a four-way stop. Along the way, you will cross a railroad track and pass a cemetery and another church. At the four-way stop, you will turn left and the church will be just ahead on the right. If you are coming from the north heading south, at the end of the ramp, you will turn right, cross the railroad track and pass a cemetery and a church until you come to a four-way stop. At the four-way stop, you will turn left and see the church just ahead. We would love to have you join us for the exciting Easter event.
We are looking forward to the Gospel Music Spring Fling on Saturday, April 11 in Cloverport, Kentucky, which is out of the Owensboro area. The concert will be held as a community event at the United Methodist Church, 801 Elm Street in Cloverport. It will begin at 6:00 pm (CT). The host of the concert is Rev. Jesse Bolin, who will be singing with his church band, along with Lambsong and The Childress Family. There is no admission, but an offering will be received. We hope all of our friends from that area and beyond will come out and join us for a great evening of gospel music in the spring!

In His Service,
The Childress Family
I KNOW IT’S EASTER!
Luke 24:6 He is not here for He has risen.
I know Easter is near because the lilacs and daffodils are in bloom, the birds are chirping outside my window every morning, the trees have a faint green budding on them, the air is fresh and crisp and my great-grandson just put a basket on my table filled with colorful plastic eggs. He is trying to tell me it is time for us to have our yearly Easter egg hunt.
How blessed we are as Christians to KNOW that Easter, the time we celebrate Christ’s resurrection, needs no outer signs of His existence! He promised His disciples that when He ascended, He would leave us another Comforter, and that Comforter is His Holy Spirit that lives within all of His children. We feel His presence in our lives leading, directing and guiding. I love the song He Lives, because the last line says, “You ask me how I know He lives, He lives within my heart.”
The Childress Family is available for your church or concert event for 2015. Our calendar is beginning to fill. We would look forward to coming to your homecoming or concert event.
