The 4 Hyms quartet of McCook will headline the Chase County Fair Christian Show on Aug. 12. The four men recognize “that we are only instruments and that while our time with audiences may be short, the Holy Spirit is not limited by time.”
The free-will donation concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the grandstand area during the fair. Proceeds finance the Southwest Nebraska Ministerial Association’s concert and its indigent care program.
The 4 Hyms convey, through their music and lifestyle, a “passionate message of everlasting love, forgiveness and hope found only in the person of Jesus Christ.”
“Our prayer is that He will use our gifts and talents to encourage the hearts of those in the audience long after our time with them,” their publicity reads.
Bruce Lester sings lead and second tenor and is the senior pastor at the McCook Evangelical Free church.
Jim Ladd, a retired Wyoming police officer, sings first tenor. Jesse Stevens sings bass and is operations manager of KIOD Home Town Radio in McCook.
Dan Stevens sings baritone and is with Hearing Specialists in McCook.
Prior to the Christian Concert the Orphan Grain Train Bratwurst Feed will be serving brats and hot dogs from 5-7 p.m. near the old beef barn.
The meal costs $5 with proceeds going to supplies and shipping for the Grain Train’s emergency response program.
