While the land may look green at the moment, the community was reminded that our state is still in the midst of serious drought at an Australia Day concert featuring Steve Grace and Skypilot.

While the concert on January 25 at HumeRidge Church of Christ was a great celebration of our nation, the large crowd that attended were also encouraged to remember and pray for those who are doing it tough in regional areas.

“Steve and SkyPilot sang of our great God and of the people of the outback,” said HumeRidge Communications Pastor Natalie Roy. “They spoke of God’s abounding love and grace and shared of the harsh realities of life faced by our rural communities in devastating times of drought.”

“We were humbled by the bravery of these men and women and challenged as to our response in supporting members of our communities who are in need.”

Following the concert, Ps. Natalie said farmers from the region expressed their thanks for the concert as their spirits were encouraged.

“Drought affects us all in one way or another,” she said. “Let us, as Steve Grace encourages, be praying for God’s blessing upon our nation, for relief from drought and for our farmers and their families facing harsh conditions.”

“We thank Steve Grace and SkyPilot for sharing their songs and words of truth in concert with us. It was a wonderful night which brought glory to God and impacted lives.”
