Front page: Indiana man travels to sing Southern gospel

By Dave Havir

BIG SANDY, TEXAS--The Church of God Big Sandy sponsored Mike Mayfield of Jasonville, Ind., on a trip to Texas and Oklahoma Aug. 23-27. Mr. Mayfield, who attends the United Church of God Terre Haute (not affiliated with the United Church of God headquartered in Milford, Ohio), sang Southern-gospel songs.

On Saturday, Aug. 23, Mr. Mayfield sang six selections of "special music" at the Sabbath service of the host congregation, and the next day he sang 14 songs at the congregation's monthly Sunday brunch.

On Sunday evening Mr. Mayfield visited Crossroads Baptist Church, near Big Sandy, and sang eight songs.

"Although I attend a Church of God congregation, I accept invitations to sing to other congregations as well," Mr. Mayfield said.

On his way home on Wednesday, Aug. 27, Mr. Mayfield sang at a concert in Tulsa, Okla., in the building owned by the Tulsa Church of God, pastored by Lawrence Gregory.

Although that concert spotlighted the sponsoring Fellowship Choir Ministries, choir director Ray Kurr of Mounds, Okla., had invited Mr. Mayfield to sing some songs in the middle of the program. See also "COG Member Sings the Praises of God and Southern Gospel," page 8.
