Pastor and Friends
PASTOR & FRIENDS
Welcome to this "Pastor and Friends" concert information page! We invite you to share with us in an evening of friendship, community, food and song, in support of the mission and ministry of First Lutheran.
We’ve all heard the word, “amateur.” This word is often used negatively, suggesting that one is unprofessional or unskilled. But the word literally means one who loves what they do. And that is the sense that our performers, young and old, professionals and non-, bring to these performance evenings: a love for each other, for their church, and for the marvelous gift of sharing their abilities with others.
All are welcome to come and concert. It is the result of many hands, many hearts and many souls. I am deeply grateful to each and every one of our music-makers and artists for all their efforts to bring our Pastor and Friends concert into being. And I'm equally grateful to you for being here to share this gift of music with us. Solo Deo Gloria - to God alone the glory!
In the name of the One who lights our world,
A word about our benefit: all proceeds from our annual Pastor & Friends concerts will go to support the renewal and expansion of the ministries of this church school community. Our community of faith funds and supports a wide variety of ministries of education, worship, learning and community service in excess of $4 Million, and more than $600,000 comes from the support of members and friends through their charitable contributions.
If you have been blessed by our performances in the past and are able to make a special fully-deductible gift to help us finish this project, we would be blessed and grateful indeed. Checks or cash may be placed in a pew envelope and given to our box office friends in the entryway. And thanks so much for your support and friendship toward our ministry and its mission!
