MOUNT STERLING, ILL. -- Gospel music recording artists the Chosen Ones will be in concert at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, at First Christian Church, 117 W. Washington.

The Chosen Ones is celebrating over 40 years in gospel music, having begun their ministry in 1974. They have sung throughout the United States and abroad, performing over 150 personal appearances annually, and have released over 30 recordings, including four national radio releases. Their latest recording, "There's a Purpose," was released in June 2014.

A ham, bean and corn bread meal will be served by the Outreach Ministry of First Christian Church prior to the concert from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. Proceeds from the dinner will be sent to help the storm victims in Texas. A love offering will be taken during the concert for the group.
