Owensboro Worship Leaders United will present the second of three contemporary non-denominational music performances as part of Glenn’s Worship on the Water Friday, July 5. The performance is also part of the Friday After 5 summer concert series.

Falling the day after the Fourth of July holiday, worship leaders from 20 area churches will present “For God and Country: A Night of Hymns,” featuring both traditional and patriotic music. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:00 p.m. 

“This is the first time it will be both patriotic and faith-based,” said vocalist Cathy Mullins. “This will be Alma Randolph’s first time joining Worship Leaders United. Overall, Owensboro Worship Leaders United just continues to grow.”


With this performance being the second in the summer series of three concerts sponsored by Glenn Funeral Home and Friday After 5, Mullins said she is eagerly anticipating the final performance on Friday, August 16.

“We are putting a call out for singers and worship leaders,” Mullins said. “We are inviting anyone and everyone that wants to be a part to join us in the choir. This will not be your typical choir — it’s more of a praise choir. We want to present the first community mass choir featuring 100-200 voices for Worship on the Water.”

Mullins said individuals of all ages are welcome including school-aged children. 

Those wanting to participate are invited to attend practice on Sunday, August 4 and Sunday, August 11 at 3 p.m. at Bellevue Baptist Church.

For those who have enjoyed Worship on the Water and Night of Hymns performances this year, Mullins said plans are underway to present a community-wide New Year’s Eve concert to usher in the year 2020.

“It’s so exciting — it’s a momentum thing,” Mullins said. “We are united, across denominations, across backgrounds — to shine the light to others.”
