Jim and Vivian Moore of Creative Ministries based at Blue Lake, Wash., will lead worship services on Sunday, Sept. 28, at the United Methodist churches.
The Moores will be at John Day United Methodist Church at 9 a.m. and Prairie City United Methodist Church at 11. A potluck meal will follow at Prairie City's Depot Park. The public is invited to attend.
For the past 33 years, the Moores have traveled the Pacific Northwest sharing the Christian ministry through music evangelism. Jim's father and grandfather also were Methodist ministers. He was born in Spokane, Wash., and graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 1963. He attended Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., in 1968. Following graduation, he and fellow evangelist Tom Page traveled the nation performing as Dust & Ashes.
Jim's compositions have been published as "The Dust & Ashes Songbook" by Methodist Publishing House, which distributes nationally to music stores. Since his Dust & Ashes days, he's recorded four solo CDs.
The couple has two grown sons and a daughter-in-law, Jonathan and Joshua and Rachel.
