Gospel quartet to visit Soldotna

Liberty, a Southern gospel quartet, will be in concert at Peninsula Grace Brethren Church, Mile 19.5 of Kalifornsky Beach Road, July 23 at 8:30 and 11 a.m.

Keith Jones, Royce Mitchell, John Cotner and Ralph Yerkes serve the Lord through singing. They have a strong church background and are involved in their local church ministries, as well as community service. Being ministry minded, the group wanted to reach a greater number of people with the Gospel -- the plain and simple, undiluted word of God.

To date, Liberty has primarily traveled in the West. This includes trips from as far south as Arizona and as far north as Alaska. The group's focus is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all who will listen. For this reason alone Liberty performs most of its concerts on a free-will love offering basis. This enables all to hear its music.

There is no admission fee for the concert, but a free-will offering will be taken.
