On Aug. 29 at 7 p.m., legendary gospel and blues performer Deacon John will perform a “healing” concert at Parker Memorial UMC.

In addition, on Aug. 30, Rev. Dr. Craig Gilliam will return to Parker Memorial UMC to share readings from his book of poetry, Where Wild Things Grow. Gilliam will read during the 10 a.m. Adult Spiritual Education class and as part of the 11 a.m. worship service.
