Refresh with Canada's Double Portion

The plans for Refresh are in the works. Canada's Double Portion from North Battleford, Sask. have been booked for the weekend.

On the Friday evening Youth Emphasis night, February 4th at 7pm, the band "Cities Under Fire" will be igniting our worship. Then on Saturday and Sunday morning the Gospel Music band "Double Portion" will be with us.

Here's what their website says about "Double Portion":

CANADAS DOUBLE PORTION from North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Canada, has become one of the busiest Canadian Gospel groups since its formation in 1982. They've crisscrossed the country from Newfoundland to British Columbia, Nashville to Alaska, performing to thousands of people and travelling tens of thousands of miles.

The group originated when the Hemmerling family, three sisters and their brother began singing while their father ministered. Duncan Hemmerling, now an ordained reverend, continues on the calling with his wife Debbie and their nine children. Their oldest son Andrew is the group's drummer and joining him on stage are his brother Jardeth, the groups guitarist, who also adds his smooth vocals and his sister Christina who plays fiddle and provides strong vocals.

Multitalented Amy Olson joins the Hemmerling family on fiddle, piano and vocals. Since beginning full-time ministry in August 1990, there have been many opportunities to share the gospel message. They have appeared on the Grand OlOpry stage, were guest artists of the legendary Cash family and the largest county fair in the U.S.A. They have performed numerous times at both the Artist Spotlight Showcase during the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, Kentucky and the Canadian Gospel Music Celebration in Red Deer, Alberta. Tours have taken them to all of Canada as well as thirty-four States including T.V. appearances on local, national and international shows.

Abundant songwriting talent has resulted in fourteen albums, three recorded in Nashville, Tennessee produced by Dove award nominees Vic and Toni Clay. They have received numerous award nominations in both the Saskatchewan Country Music Association and the Gospel Music Association Canada (GMA Canada). They have been honored with the Country Gospel Song of the Year, Album of theYear, Live Band of the Year and Southern Gospel Song of the Year Awards.

CANADAS DOUBLE PORTION'S strong family ties and deep faith in the Lord has sustained and motivated them to bring their music to people everywhere. They count it a privilege to minister in any setting.

So mark February 4 to 6, 2011 on your calendar and join us at Gospel Chapel. Be refreshed.
