Steven Curtis Chapman Concert at Crystal Grand Music – Friday, October 13th
CCS friends and family: we are so excited about this upcoming concert with Steven Curtis Chapman. J Stevens Productions would love to see more Christian concerts like this come to the Crystal Grand Music Theatre in Wisconsin Dells, and so would we. They have asked CCS to help promote this concert and the upcoming Matthew West concert later this fall. By helping with this promotion, J Stevens Productions has offered to give a portion of the ticket proceeds to benefit CCS. What a great opportunity for our school and the surrounding area! Please share this concert event with your family and friends so we can pack the house and show them we would love more Christian concerts as well. Tickets available online at crystalgrand.com
