LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Church music groups looking to show off their skill and enjoy an afternoon of worship with other groups still have time to sign up for the third annual Inspirational Praise Sing-Off at the Texas State Forest festival.

For the next two weeks, the festival will be accepting applications for the contest. The event is free for groups with the winner receiving a cash prize.

"We wanted this to get young people back in the church, which is why a condition is being attached to the money," said organizer John Fulbright III. "We will require the winning group to donate the money to a youth group of their choice. it doesn't have to be their own church's. We just want kids to benefit from this."

Fulbright said the event has grown since debuting in 2014. Fulbright is hoping more churches will get involved for this year. He believes it lets churches get together and enjoy fellowship together.

"It's the one time a year we have a time set aside where we can come together," Fulbright said. "Without anything political anything denominationally or racially. It's just a time we can come together as the body of Christ."

The sing-off will take place on Sept. 25 from 2 to 5. It will be preceded by the Inspirational Dance-off competition from 1 to 2 p.m. They will take place as part of the Texas State Forest Festival and will be inside the George H. Henderson Expo Center. To register for the events, click here.
