The Psalms of City will be capped off with a concert at 7:30 p.m. A local favorite, The Mailboxes, made up of students from Lee University, will be opening. Then John Tibbs, who has played with Gungor, Jenny and Tyler, and Tenth Avenue North will take the stage. For ticket information, please contact Tenika Dye.
