Family ministry musical group to perform Sunday

Pahrump’s Covenant Lighthouse Church on Sunday is the venue for a unique family of singers, songwriters and musicians.

According to the group’s bio, Canada’s Double Portion from North Battleford, Saskatchewan is a five-piece gospel band comprised entirely of one family.

Parents Duncan and Debbie Hemmerling, along with nine of their 10 children, will perform at 7 p.m.

This year marks the 34th year of ministry for the veteran group.

The group originated with Duncan Hemmerling, along with his three sisters.

Over the years, Canada’s Double Portion has traveled across the continent from Newfoundland to British Columbia, and from Georgia to Alaska.

The group said three decades of traveling have provided unique experiences, such as singing on the Grand Ole Opry stage and backing up Johnny and June Cash at a Cash/River family reunion.

The ensemble has performed with numerous gospel music groups while touring the U.S.’ largest events.

Their new CD Days and Times, produced in Nashville by Gordon Mote, received three awards with Gospel Music Association Canada.

Mote, an American Christian country singer, pianist, and worship leader, was born blind.

Their songs, Just in Time, What I’ve Learned So Far and Your Love were awarded in the country bluegrass and southern gospel song of the year categories.

Covenant Lighthouse Church is located at 921 S. Highway 160, Suite 401.

IN SEASON: November bulbs bring April flowers

Years ago, when I lived in Alaska, I was driving to work one morning at the end of a frigid winter. The thaw had given way to greenery and by mid-May the sun had fully returned after a winter of darkness. As I passed a stand of pine trees, I suddenly noticed to my left a field brimming in green and purple.
