Mark your calendar now for Alumni Homecoming weekend, June 1-3 and a special concert by the King's Heralds on Sunday at 7:30 pm in the College Heights SDA Church.  Tickets to the concert will cost $20.  They go on sale March 1 and can be ordered by phone at 403-782-4054.

"Singing 4Him" is the theme of this year's homecoming weekend and we hope to bring back as many CUC quartets as possible for the weekend.  Fred Kinsey, Speaker/Director of the Voice of Prophecy will speak for Sabbath services.  A schedule of this year's homecoming events can be found here.

The King's Heralds now feature, from left to right, Don Scroggs, 1st tenor,
Joel Borg, 2nd tenor, Russell Hospedales, baritone, and Jeff Pearles, bass.
The King's Heralds got their start in 1927 in Keene, Texas and were first known as the Lone Star Four.  The group's name changed to the King's Heralds in 1936 when they began working with the evangelist H. M. S. Richards and his radio broadcast, The Voice of Prophecy.  The quartet has been a self-supporting ministry since 1982. 

Over the years the King's Heralds have recorded more than 100 albums in 30 different languages.  They have performed in 50 countries.  They have received twenty-three Silver Angel Awards© for "Excellence in Media", including six for "Best Male Vocal Group", fourteen for "Best Album" and a "Best International Broadcast" award for their own radio program, "Sounds of Praise". The group also received a "Gold" Angel Award© in 1992 for being the oldest continuous Gospel Quartet in America.
