Frye Family Band Giving Concert Aug. 19

SILVER LAKE — The Frye Family Band will be in concert at 6 p.m. Aug. 19 at Silver Lake Wesleyan Church.

Originally from Indiana, the Fryes are based out of Nashville. They are recording their new project, “Things Unseen,” with multi-Grammy nominee and Dove Award-winning songwriter, producer and worship leader Michael Farren.

“It’s an honor to work with someone of Michael’s caliber,” said Tom Frye. “Having him involved in the writing, song selection and production has been an amazing process, and it’s stretched all of us in amazing ways.”

The Fryes create an acoustic style of music that spans many years and genres. Their desire is to use stories and songs to encourage listeners in their journey of faith. To learn more about the Frye Family Band. visit

ByGrace Ministry At Tippe Lake Service

LEESBURG — ByGrace Ministry will be the guest musicians Sunday at Leesburg United Methodist Church’s service at Tippecanoe Lake.

ByGrace Ministry is composed of Amos and Margaret Raber and their five children, ranging in age from 11 to 3. Their ministry was born out of the pain and healing processes of losing loved ones.

In spring 2002 Margaret's boyfriend was killed in a small plane crash. Later that year, Amos lost his wife in a car accident nine days after they were married. God brought Amos and Margaret together through mutual friends, and in February 2005 they got married.

The couple have spent most of their married life traveling in ministry, singing and preaching in churches, prisons andcommunity events in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. In recent years their ministry has taken on a new dynamic since their children are singing and playing several instruments for their family band. Amos and Margaret also serve on their home church’s pastoral team.

The service begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday at Patona Bay on Tippecanoe Lake. Guests may come by boat, kayak or canoe and anchor in front of Patona Bay. Those who join the group on land should bring a chair. If it rains, the service will be moved to the boathouse.

Leesburg UMC also has a service at 9:30 a.m. Sunday at its building in Leesburg.

The church is at 3780 Ind. 110, Tippecanoe.
