Children’s choir from Africa to perform in Oxford
Cultures will unite when The Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa performs at Crosspointe Baptist Church on Wednesday, Dec.10, at 7 p.m. to bring a message of joy and hope through African song and dance.
Daraja means “bridge” in Swahili, and the choir, made up of 24 orphans and vulnerable children from Kenya, serve as a bridge to connect the people of Africa and America. For many of the children, who have never experienced life outside Kenya, this is an opportunity for these children to learn and experience foreign cultures. At the same time, Americans have the opportunity to step into the lives of these Kenyan children by hearing their testimonies and experiencing traditional African song and dance.
The Crosspointe youth group heard the choir at youth camp this past summer and encouraged the church to host them on their fall tour.
Crosspointe is located at 252 Byrd Road in Oxford, just off of Gum Creek Road. This concert is provided as a ministry to our community as part of our Advent celebration. Please call (770) 786-2078 for further details.
The Choir is embarking on two U.S. tours this year, which includes a stop in Oxford. The Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa is part of The 410 Bridge, a non-profit organization focusing on mission work in Kenya. The 410 Bridge exists to connect people within the body of Christ to contribute to the self-developing capabilities of the people of Kenya.
