Lightnin Charlie will be performing at the Renaissance Center Theater in Kingsport on January 11 at 7 pm to benefit the mission efforts of the Kingsport area United Methodist Churches in South Sudan.

Work in the Yei, South Sudan community has been going on since 2006 and involves the building of churches, building of school buildings, training of pastors and meeting the needs of widows and orphans, providing clean drinking water, and assisting in the meeting of health needs. Efforts are now underway to build an orphanage.

Districts of the United Methodist Church are entering into covenant agreements with communities in Yei. The Kingsport District will be working with the Mahat United Methodist Church. A team of area church members is traveling to South Sudan on January 23rd to assess needs and begin relationship building in that community.

Cost of the concert is $5 per person. Come out and support these efforts.
