The Lamb Jam Music Festival is currently seeking ministries to participate in its sixth annual event slated for August of this year in Linton’s Humphreys Park.

Virgil Franklin has been an organizer of the festival since its inception and is asking for any ministry interested in participating in this year’s event to contact him via the Lamb Jam website.

“We are looking for any ministry who is wishing to set up a booth or who wants to get involved with this year’s program to contact us at our website at www.lambjamfestival.com.\”

Franklin explained the goal of the Lamb Jam Music Festival is, “Our ministry is putting ministries together in order to reach a wide audience in order to do good for the community.”

Besides ministries, any individual wishing to lend a hand can also go to the website and fill out a form.

The Lamb Jam Festival will take place this year on Saturday, August 1 and Sunday, August 2.

The events for Saturday will take place from 11 to 7 p.m.

“We are forming a really great lineup this year with a lot of diversity of genres of music,” said Franklin.

On Saturday, Lamb Jam is partnering with SON Ministries for the annual clothing drive. Last year SON ministries provided a 16-foot trailer full of clothes and distributed over half of the contents to those in need.

“Lamb Jam is a conduit for other ministries,” said Franklin, “We just supply the space, place and time.”

On Sunday the events will take place from 12 to 5 p.m., but the details for the day are still transient. One of the main musical events taking place on Sunday will be a community gospel sing.

The Family Life Center in Bloomfield will also be hosting a backpack giveaway for area children.

“Any person who is experiencing hardship or has a need is welcome to attend. Both days we will have free clothing, hair cuts, school supplies, and a bounce house. One of the main goals of the Lamb Jam Festival is to make a difference in the community.”

Though the Lamb Jam Festival started from humble beginnings, the festival has become a tradition for the Linton community.

“When we started it was so small, but for most years we have the seen the festival grow. But besides the music, at the end of the day it is all about ministry. Lamb Jam is not church, but a place where churches can reach out to the community.”
