A Mother's Day Celebration!

Are you looking for a special way to honor the women in your life this Mother’s Day? Show your mother or the mother of your children how very much you treasure her by treating her and the rest of your family to one of two very unique Christ-centered events to be held on Mother’s Day.

A Mother’s Day Celebration Lunch Concert will be held at the Ashland House Ballroom in Morton on Sunday, May 13, 2012. The afternoon will feature the uplifting music of Reggie & Ladye Love Smith with special guest Rachel West Kramer.

The Smiths have an international fan base with having performed in 12 countries and throughout the United States. They are versatile singers who are equally at home performing gospel, big band and contemporary Christian music. Fans of Southern Gospel music will appreciate that Reggie and Layde Love have been a part of the Gaither Homecoming Concerts since 1998, giving them the opportunity to appear with some of the top names in gospel music. The couple has also performed at such famous venues as Carnegie Hall, the Kremlin in Moscow and The Grand Ole Opry.


Doors open at 12:30 p.m. with dinner at 1:00 PM. Tickets are $35 for adults and $25 for children 12 and under. There is a discount of $5 off per person for groups of 8 or more. For reservations, call Hands of Love Ministry at 309-383-2828.
