It’s time for the annual concert by Nashville gospel group Mark 209 on Sunday, Aug. 9 at 4 p.m.
For the last three years, they’ve come up on their New England tour a sung at the First UMC in Boothbay Harbor. This year however, due to obvious pandemic challenges, that concert to Southport UMC’s parking lot and lawn.
It’ll be a fresh-air concert. Bring your own chairs and blankets. Wear masks, and observe social distancing. This is a long overdue chance for people to get out and enjoy good old-fashioned country and gospel.
The Southport United Methodist Church is at 372 Hendricks Hill Road/Route 27, Southport Island. Parking at adjacent Church Street and at the Town Hall across the street. Please note: in case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved inside the church.
A freewill offering will be taken.
