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.

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

Religious poems sought from Kenai-area poets

The Bards of Burbank are holding a poetry competition with a $1,000 grand prize. The competition is free to enter and open to everyone. The deadline for submitting entries is Aug. 4.

"We think religious poems can invite achievement," said Dr. John Scribner, the organization's contest director.

"We're especially keen on inspiring amateur poets, and we think this competition will achieve that. Alaska has made many wonderful poets over the years, and I'd like to discover new ones from among the Kenai-area grass-roots poets."

To enter, send one poem of 21 lines or less to: Free Poetry Contest, PMB250, 2219 W Olive Ave., Burbank, CA 991506 or enter online at www.friendlypoets.com.

For more information, e-mail Scribner at john@mighty.net.
