¬† 05/04/12 Plans are underway for Marshall County‚Äôs second annual Christian Variety Show. The show is hosted by friends and fellow Marshall County Church Orchestra members Annette Ray and Cindy Flagg.¬† The show will be held at the First United Methodist Church of Plymouth located at 400 N. Michigan Street.
Ray and Flagg enjoy teaming together on many different projects.¬† Last year the variety show was held in February and while it was quite successful there were conflicts with other community events.¬† This year they have moved the date of the show to Saturday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m.
There is no monetary fee to attend the variety show.¬† However, if possible those attending are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for the Neighborhood Center.¬† There will also be a donation jar for those wishing to give to Rev. Matthew Pickut and his family.
Throughout the process of contacting performers and finding a venue for the show, etc. people continue to ask, ‚ÄúWhy?‚ÄĚ¬† What is the purpose of the variety show?¬† Ray enjoys answering that question.
‚ÄúCindy and I are both firm believers that God has given every single person a talent.¬† And we must use those talents for the Lord.¬† And I felt a need to bring people together to praise the Lord.¬† The variety show is a great way to experience Him through the gifts of others.‚ÄĚ
Ray promises that all talent on the evening of the program is done with Christ in mind. As well as a variety of talent; a variety of ages will be taking part in the evening performance.¬† She is sure all ages will enjoy the show.
‚ÄúThis would be a wonderful evening to pick up the kids and grand-kids and enjoy an evening together,‚ÄĚ said Ray.
A complete schedule of the evening‚Äôs variety will be published closer to the date of the event.¬† The event will be held in the church‚Äôs sanctuary.¬† The church is handicap accessible and all are invited to attend.¬† People with questions regarding the variety show should call Cindy Flagg at 574-952-3661.
