A Long Live the King of Kings concert benefiting Operation Christmas Child will be held at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 19 at the Prospect United Methodist Church.
The featured singer will be Glenn Bowles, who according to a news release carries the distinction of being the first man to hold the title of World Champion Elvis Tribute Artist and was recently named one of the top 10 Elvis tribute artists in the world by the estate of Elvis Presley. The news release said Bowles has been a singer and performer since the age of 15 and has toured the country as a member of The Van-Dells.
The doors open at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
Admission is free with donations of shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.
Operation Christmas Child is a worldwide children’s project of Samaritan’s Purse that started in the United States in 1993 and uses simple gift-filled shoe boxes to let hurting children know they are loved and not forgotten. Kids, families, businesses and organizations in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and 10 additional countries fill shoe boxes with school supplies, toys, necessity items, family photos and notes of encouragement for needy children.
A love offering will be taken.
CDs from Bowles will be available.
“In Long Live the King of Kings, Glenn Bowles will take you through the not often explored gospel music of Elvis Presley as well as sharing Glenn’s own personnel journey toward salvation,” the press release said. “This is not an Elvis tribute show, but a true gospel music ministry. From the King of Rock to the King of Kings, let Glenn Bowles share his love of God with you.”
