Oct 24, 2014 Doors Open 6pm, Concert 6:30pm

HIGHLAND COMMUNITY CHURCH 1005 N. 28th Avenue Wausau, WI 54401
We are excited to announce The “WE WON’T BE SHAKEN TOUR” featuring Grammy nominated BUILDING 429 with LOVE & THE OUTCOME and CADENCE in partnership with FEED THE CHILDREN. The title track on their latest album We Won’t Be Shaken is a battle cry for the church in these troubled times; with passion and conviction their lyrics encourage believers to stand strong in their faith. The members of Building 429 are united in their desire to be bold about sharing their faith and want to encourage others to do so without fear or hesitation. You will recognize He is With Us as performed by Love & The Outcome - this song comes from their journey of clinging to the Lord, knowing that He never changes. Concert begins at 6:30 pm | Doors Open at 6:00 pm. SEE YOU THERE! Advance tickets available online at or by phone at 1-800-965-9324.
