The Kramers in Concert – Sun, 1/8/23

Join us during Worship on Sunday, January 8th, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. for The Kramers in concert. Members of the family are D. Scott Kramer, Rachel West Kramer, Maria Kramer Wolfe, and Ben Wolfe.

When God’s gifting, God’s anointing and God’s calling come together in one family, exciting things are going to happen. Since their beginning in gospel music ministry, The Kramers have maintained a high quality of musical excellence with an unquenchable passion to see people come to know Jesus Christ as Savior. Matched with the seriousness of their calling, The Kramers shine with an undeniable love for The LORD. The beauty of this relationship is clearly evident not only through the anointing of their music, but also their godly love for everyone they meet. One cannot attend a Kramers concert without being touched. With Rachel’s beautiful, soaring soprano voice, Maria’s tender, heartfelt delivery of beautiful lyrics and smooth family harmonies, many doors of opportunity have now opened nationally. The Kramers maintain a full schedule sharing at events across the United States and beyond in churches, auditoriums and major concert venues. This increased demand has also led to increased recognition and The Kramers were nominated for “2020 New Artist of The Year” as part of The Singing News Fan Awards. As things have continued to progress for The Kramers, they teamed up with StowTown Records and multi-award winning producer, Wayne Haun for their latest album release entitled, “Sing Me There”; a sophomore album release with StowTown Records. The new project is indicative of The Kramers wide range of musical styles as it offers touching ballads, up-tempo songs with catchy melodies, powerful songs of worship and songs featuring awe-inspiring orchestrations. At an event with The Kramers, audiences can expect a variety of musical styles featuring beautiful family harmonies and the skilled accompanying instrumentation brought forth by Scott and Ben. Audiences are greatly moved, oftentimes to tears, by the sweet, yet powerful gospel message within each of the musical selections. Top all of this off with a time of hearing personal testimony, along with an opportunity to accept Christ as Savior, and many walk away greatly impacted by the gospel. That’s the hope of The Kramers – to share this gospel Truth with everyone they meet that Jesus is The Living Hope for All Tomorrow!

A Bed 4 Me

Witness & Outreach Committee is sponsoring a collection for A Bed 4 Me Foundation in November. AB4M is a local non-profit charity that gives beds to children that otherwise would be sleeping on the floor.

Please bring twin sheets, pillows, and comforters—any color except white. Help us line the sanctuary steps with these items for children’s comfort, health, and well-being.
