Posts Tagged ‘Jazz worship at Rocheport begins’

OMG! Yep, we’re adding another distinctive service to our palette of worship experiences at Rocheport. Beginning this Saturday, February 16, 5:00 p.m., we will begin a 3rd Saturday of each month Jazz Service at Rocheport Christian Church. In terms of form, this follows suit with our Bluegrass service – simple, lots of music, a message, communion, followed with a hospitality hour.

We are so pleased to have the phenomenal musical leadership of Tom Andes for our maiden voyage. Everyone around the area knows of Tom’s great jazz artistry. He will be joined by his long-time bassist, Dave Johnson and our own Terry Overfelt on vocals. Pass the word to all your friends who are jazz buffs or those who just want to worship differently.

An exciting heads up: Tom can’t take the every month gig, but we have seized a very, very exciting opportunity! Beginning in March our Jazz services will enjoy the musical handiwork of no less than the Lily Tan Jazz Trio. What a coup! Lily, a graduate student in jazz studies is originally from Malaysia. And she is a woman of exceedingly strong religious conviction – a self-avowed “believer,” in her words. We so look forward to that.

So join us for the next iteration of the Rocheport journey. Yeah, this time it’s jazz.
