Shabbona church to host concert and open house

Shabbona United Church of Christ, 104 E. Navaho, Shabbona, invites the community to a concert and open house at 5 p.m. Sunday to celebrate the acquisition of the clinic property across the street from the church.

The property was owned by Kishwaukee Hospital, which offered viable terms to make the acquisition possible. The church plans to use the facility as an extension of its “Next-Door Missions” program which seeks to assist with a variety of family needs. Some of the needs being considered are a senior center, counseling center and a place to conduct health screenings. All the programs of Next-Door Missions will be open to the community.

The concert of sacred music on Sunday will feature vocalists Luis Galvez and Lia Grace Aspengren.

Following the concert, refreshments will be served in the new facility.
