Manna to benefit from singer, storyteller show

Thomson First United Methodist Church and other local churches have partnered with the Thomson Rotary Club to hold a concert benefitting Manna.

Singer and storyteller Allen Levi will perform in the church's Family Life Center at 7 p.m. Feb. 18.

"I tell people to come support Manna, but also come because you are going to have a lot of fun," said John Barnes, the senior pastor of FUMC.

The Rev. Barnes said some of Mr. Levi's music is poignant, while other songs are funny.

"So, he's got a wonderful gift ... and he usually just takes ordinary things and turns them into a song," he said.

Although Mr. Levi is a Christian, the Rev. Barnes said his music is not traditional hymns or praise and worship. Most of it is accompanied by acoustic guitar, with some occasional keyboard.

All money from ticket sales will go directly to Manna.

Manna Inc. is a local, faith-based organization in which local churches and members of the community pool their resources to help feed the hungry and provide assistance to the needy.

Advance tickets may be purchased from any Rotarian, or at First United Methodist Church of Thomson, First Baptist Church of Thomson, Marshall Baptist Church or ThomsonPresbyterian Church.
