EVENTSWest Michigan Christian News writer Terry DeBoer surveys the landscape for the area's faith-based arts and entertainment and events over the coming month. Here are three highlights for July:

*Praise in the Park – Church music ensembles from throughout the Rockford and surrounding areas perform at 6 p.m. each Sunday in the "Praise in the Park" series at Garden Park in downtown Rockford. Praise-oriented music is highlighted, and there is no admission charge. Bringing your own seating is encouraged. Musicians during July include artists from Bella Vista Church (July 5), Rockford Reformed (July 12), Resurrection Life Rockford (July 19) and Bridgeway Community (July 26). Garden Park is just off W. Bridge St. east of the dam along the Rogue River. For more information visit online

*The Martins – The inspirational, Southern gospel trio performs at 6 p.m. Sun. July 12 in Sandy Pines Lakeside Chapel at Sandy Pines Resort in northeast Allegan County. The three Martin family siblings have several Dove Awards and other music honors, and make frequent appearances on the Gaither Homecoming tours and videos. Their most recent CD is a collection titled "A Cappella." The Chapel gate opens at 4 p.m. Bring your own lawn chairs. Come to the resort's 26th entrance, south of 142nd Ave. (GPS location: 3630 26th St. Dorr, MI 49323) Visit online.  

*Anthony Evans– The inspirational singer-songwriter performs at 7 p.m. Sat. July 18 at Maranatha Bible Conference, 4759 Lake Harbor Rd. Muskegon.
