 God's Country Jamboree

 110 people attended our God's Country Jamboree in Cicero on June 11th. This month’s focus was a farewell to Bill and Julie Krupke, who are stepping back from God’s Country Ramblers as they prepare to move south this fall. It was impossible to fit all the songs we wanted to play into the one hour service, so after the service the Ramblers performed another 3 songs.

Lou Coutrie added his signature rythm guitar fills on “Just A Closer Walk With Thee” as a special treat during the offering. Ed Rock sang “Remember When” with lyrics he had written for Bill and Julie. Members of the band took the opportunity to tell Julie and Bill what they have meant to God’s Country Jamboree and how much they will be missed.

Pastor Dave’s message was about fathers and how their role in the home has changed over time, how they are called on to play a more nurturing role than in the past. And in the love of a father we are reminded of God’s love for all his children.

Our next God's Country Jamboree will be on Sunday, July 9th at 5:45 PM. Y'all come!
