Songfest weekend brings spiritual praise

SAN ANTONIO — Tasty barbecue, uplifting harmonies, a new college president and great fellowship are on tap for the 14th Annual Evening of Spiritual Harmony at the Northside church of Christ on Sept. 22-23 this year. The celebration benefits Southwestern Christian College up in Terrell. Songfest weekend opens on Saturday with a home style meal from 4-5 p.m. Afterward, the school’s exceptional Summer Tour choral group will kick off a rousing music program beginning at 5:30.
On Sunday morning, Ervin Seamster, Jr., SWCC’s President and CEO, will speak at Northside’s 8:30 and 11:15 assemblies for the first time. An alumnus of SwCC, Dr. Seamster has been president of the college since January, 2017. Between the Sunday assemblies again this year, young men from SWCC and from Northside will continue the celebration as they lead songs and prayers.
The singing groups appearing for the first time this year include Purpose from Little Rock, Arkansas; The Company from Ft. Worth; and Lift, the praise team from Liberty View Church of Christ in San Antonio. Returning groups are Hims of Praise, the Hour of Truth Chorus, and the Northside Ladies.
Although there is no admission charge for the concert, donations will be accepted. They are tax deductible as they provide scholarship opportunities for San Antonio/Austin area high school students, as well as financial support for continuing renovations to student housing and other campus facilities. All checks can be made payable to SwCC Fund.
Before the concert, serving for the home style meal begins at 4 p.m. in the youth area on the second floor of the building. On the menu are two selections from these meat choices: oven-roasted chicken, BBQ riblets, or mesquite-smoked sausage; two servings from these side choices: green beans, mac and cheese, potato salad, or baked beans; bread and a beverage. Prepaid tickets are $12 for ages 13-adult and $7 for ages 12 and under.
