Church of No Color Festival in August

By Melanie B. Smith 340-2468

Churches are the backbone of Habitat for Humanity's work, said the executive director of the Athens/Limestone County affiliate, Garth Lovvorn.

Celebrating and supporting that support is the idea behind The Church of No Color Praise and Worship Festival in Athens, he said. The celebration will be at Swan Creek Park on Aug. 18 at 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The purpose is to bring together Christians of all denominations and races in prayer and service to the community, according to planners. The festival is free but donations will be taken for Habitat for Humanity of Athens/Limestone County for an upcoming house construction.

Performers will include Tonya Williams, Kenn Orr, Sister Grace, Threefold, Clear Title, Unchained and Little Zion Choir. Several of the performers have released CDs.

Frank Travis will serve as emcee. Free food will be served.

Donations will support an an "Apostle Build," a national program of Habitat for Humanity that uses church resources to build homes. The first Apostle Build in Athens will start Sept. 1 for a family with an autistic child, according to Lovvorn. He said 10 churches are committed to help but more are needed.

Co-organizers of the festival are Lynn Robinson and the Rev. Sibb Adell, Habitat board members.

Swan Creek Park is on U.S. 31 next to Athens High School.
