Sidewalk Prophets to perform in BBC&S Recreation Center
Nashville-based Sidewalk Prophets will be featured in a concert Sunday, September 15 in the new Recreation Center at BBC&S.
The event is coordinated by Northeast Pennsylvania Youth for Christ. The organization is using the program as a local rally for high school students ahead of the "See You at the Pole" national day of prayer set for September 25. The rally will take place ahead of the concert.
Tickets for the concert are available at the door. The cost is $5 for BBC&S students, $12 for non-BBC&S students, and $15 for adults. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
"Kids will get ready to lead and do 'See You at the Pole' at their schools," said Jerry Major III, executive director of Northeast Pennsylvania Youth for Christ. "During the rally, there is a breakout time where kids meet together with others from their school to work out all the details themselves."
"More than 600 teens yearly participate in local schools in a six-county radius. This year's challenging concert is by Sidewalk Prophets, who do a great job of inspiring young people to make their lives count for God."
Sidewalk Prophets is a contemporary Christian music band. The group was named "New Artist of the Year" at the 2010 GMA Dove Awards. The group was formed when lead singer Dave Frey and rhythm guitarist Ben McDonald met attending Anderson University in Indiana.
"See You at the Pole" is a national day of student prayer held the fourth Wednesday of September, usually at 7 a.m. at school flagpoles. It is a student-organized, student-led event. An estimated 3 million students yearly meet at middle school, high school, and college campuses to pray for their schools, administrators, teachers, families and friends.
