Praise in the Pasture
posted 8.26.11 Carrying on the tradition begun by Praisefest in Rockport last year, a similar event is planned in Lyman this month. Praise in the Pasture will be held Sat., Aug. 27, from 11 a.m. till 5 p.m. (or later), in the field behind Lyman Baptist Church, located at 31551 W. Main St., in Lyman. The event is meant to be primarily “a free event where people can enjoy music and fun,” said organizer Stacy LaCount. To that end, LaCount and other volunteers are bringing in fair-style attractions, including a bouncy house, face-painter, and a dunk tank where participants will have a chance to dunk PUD Commissioner Jim Cook. A volleyball net will be up and there’s a chance for a large water slide too. The Experience Salon will be on site, offering temporary hair graffiti and feather hair extensions, with all proceeds being used to fund a mission trip to Mexico. Food vendors will be there too, selling all manner of treats. Christian musicians and speakers—heavy on the music—will take turns entertaining and educating the crowd. On the music side, look for Josh Donnell, Closer to Home, the Lyman Baptist Worship Team, Armando Lopez, and more. Speakers will include George Henson from Harvest Vision Ministries and local pastor Norm Swihart. For more information on this event, call or text LaCount at 360.420.2345.
