Faith Lutheran Church invites everyone to enjoy Christian singer and songwriter Chris Dreisbach in concert at the Lunda Park Bandshell.

This free concert in the park is Tuesday, July 24, at 7 p.m. Dreisbach has played concerts in 41 states and has recorded seven Christian CDs. He sings original Christian songs in a variety of styles. Some songs are moving, some are thought-provoking, some are funny, but all give glory to God. An atheist until age 33, Driesbach (pronounced “drys-bock”) tells the story, in words and music, of how God brought him to faith. Dreisbach identifies, “I played music professionally for 30 years on the west coast. I was an atheist until age 33, and after that sort of a new-age spiritualist. Nine years later I became a Lutheran and a Christian at the same time in 1995. Faith Lutheran Church and Pastor James Oldfield in Anchorage, Alaska were my first church and pastor. We went through a 22-week Bible study course together. Pastor Oldfield read to me out of the Bible when asked him all of the hardest questions I could think of, and after 6 weeks of his class I was given the gift of faith by the Spirit working though God’s Word. My life completely changed, of course!” In addition to sponsoring Chris Driesbach, Faith Lutheran is providing free popcorn and lemonade before the concert in the park. There will be an opportunity to purchase Chris Driesbach CDs. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on. In case of a stormy weather tune to WWIS Radio to hear if the concert will be moved to the Faith Lutheran Church building at N6598 County Trunk A. Faith Lutheran is affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) and its mission is to help people stay rooted in Christ and reach out with his Word.
