African children’s choir to bring message of joy, hope Oct. 30

Cultures will unite when the Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa performs at Cross Lane Community Church at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, to bring a message of joy and hope through song and dance.

Daraja means “bridge” in Swahili, and the choir, made up of 24 children from Uganda, serve as a bridge to connect the people of Africa and North America. This is a life-changing opportunity for these children to learn and experience American culture, as many of them have never experienced life outside of their country. At the same time, Americans have the opportunity to step into the lives of these children by hearing their testimonies and experiencing traditional African song and dance.

“We are excited to bring this unique opportunity to our community and we know that everyone in attendance will be blessed!” said Tracy Sutliff, administrative pastor at Cross Lane.

The concert will be free, but tickets are required, and a support offering will be collected. To reserve tickets, contact the church office at 812-466-6766 or stop by the church, 2204 Lafayette Ave., between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the week.

The choir is part of The 410 Bridge, a nonprofit Christian organization focusing on holistic community development in Uganda, Kenya and Haiti. For more information visit or
