MOUNT VERNON — Grace Community Church of Mount Vernon and Pastor Roger Tickle will return Sunday to the Dan Emmett Music & Arts Festival for its fifth year of serving breakfast and the good word.

The pancake breakfast will start at 6 a.m., Sunday, on Public Square for the cost of a donation and will continue until the church runs out of food, according to Tickle. The worship service will begin at 9 a.m. and will feature local bluegrass band Still Climbing and a sermon from Tickle that will ponder if there is an answer to issues the community of Mount Vernon faces.

Proceeds from breakfast donations will go to an orphanage in Thailand, sponsored by Grace Community Church.
