After speaking with Matt Rankin of Soul'd Out Quartet, at this time their concert is still on as scheduled, and will be held outside in the church parking lot, weather permitting, to help make it easier to maintain social distancing for seating at all times during the concert. Parking will be available in the field behind the fellowship hall. We also ask that you bring your own lawn chairs to sit on, and due to the Executive Orders from state and local governments, face masks are required for everyone attending the concert, in case 6ft Social Distancing cannot always be maintained. Please check the church website frequently for updated concert information.
