Night of Hope worship event benefits hurricane relief

September 8, 2017

PRINCETON, Ind. — Dayspring Community Church hosts “Night of Hope,” a worship event at the Owensville, Indiana church to benefit hurricane relief efforts.

The event is being organized by church pastor Scott Burr, an author and weekly columnist for The Daily Clarion and Mount Carmel Register newspapers.

“So, I am running this morning and God lays it on my heart to host a “Night of Hope” worship night to raise money for Convoy of Hope hurricane relief! Here is the kicker...I am suppose to host it next Friday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. That’s a week away!” church pastor Scott Burr reported on social media Friday morning.

He said he’s looking for three or four worship bands to perform 20-minute sets for free for the benefit. “I know it’s crazy...but I got to be obedient! So share this with your pastors, worship leaders, and bands! Let’s do this!” he posted on Facebook Friday morning.

Burr said anyone willing to help with the event can contact him on Facebook or by phone, 812-724-4114.

Proceeds of the worship concert will be donated to Springfield, Missouri-based Convoy of Hope, a faith-based non-profit relief organization founded in 1994 that has served more than 80 million people in children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches and disaster response, according to its website, convoyofhope.org.
