Corsicana — Calvary Worship Center and The Word Church invite you to a night of music and ministry with Christina Lee!!! The concert will be 6 p.m. Saturday April 20, at Calvary Worship Center. Come join in what will be an evening to remember, hear the awesome music that started it all, and share in the stories of God's miracle! Christina's love for music became obvious at an early age. Being raised in a Christian home she could be found in front of the stereo drinking in song after song from the pioneers of Christian music. She was born and raised in Fairfield to wonderful parents who pastor in her hometown. They taught her to honor God and devote her gift of music to Him. Piano lessons and singing in church were the norm as a child, and as she came into adulthood she began to write music as well. Christina moved to Nashville at the end of 2009 and has since produced her first album “Beyond Repair?” As a member of Calvary Worship Center for many years she is excited about coming "home" to share what God has done and desires you to join in with her as this incredible journey continues…
