ST. MICHAELS — The Covenant Gospel Choir, along with Friends for Christ community group, will give a concert at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at Union United Methodist Church in St. Michaels, to benefit the Talbot Interfaith Shelter. A free-will offering will be accepted.
The organizations bring together enthusiastic singers from several different religious denominations in St. Michaels, Wittman, Neavitt, Royal Oak, Bellevue and Easton to present spirited gospel music.
The combined group is directed by Leroy Potter, a music teacher in Caroline County Public Schools and a pianist at Union Baptist Church in Easton.
The United Methodist Women of Union United Methodist Church are sponsoring the concert. ”The UMW is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.”
The beneficiary organization, Talbot Interfaith Shelter in Easton, serves homeless individuals from Talbot County and surrounding areas.
Opened in November 2014, Talbot Interfaith Shelter is operated by volunteers from local faith-based communities and other concerned citizens. It is dedicated to providing safe, temporary shelter to men, women and children who lack adequate housing, and to raising awareness of the issue of homelessness in the community.
A number of other musical groups have been asked to perform. All are welcome.
