Garms Family concert set for July 3

Who would think a family from Minnesota would love Southern Gospel music, much less share it with audiences across the country? And yet The Garms Family, hailing from the Land of 10,000 Lakes and 20 million mosquitoes, is doing just that and enjoying every mile together.

David and Kris Garms with six of their children — Ben, Taylor, Leesha, Sam, Jayme and Caleb — count it a privilege to travel the country, meeting people and ministering in word and song. Since their simple beginnings of singing hymns in the living room to the release of multiple CDs, the Garms family has been blessed to sing at a variety of churches, festivals and events. They travel full-time, sharing the Gospel through their beautiful harmonies and solid instrumentation. Their tours have brought them to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, Georgia and Florida.

They weave Southern Gospel, gospel bluegrass and their own unique musical style to create a memorable concert experience, and each song is an adventure as they play over 20 instruments on stage.

They will be in concert at Wadena Assembly of God, 419 1st St. NW at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 3. Pastor Allen Refsland invites the community for this special service.
