The Bridge Board invites you to share in a special afternoon of music as we welcome back some of our favorite performers from the past few years and hear from some new ones for our Encore concert. Whether you missed these wonderful performances the first time around or you just want to hear them again, now is your chance!

Proceeds help support our Bridge families as we work with them toward self-sufficiency. Tickets can be purchased during the week for $8 in the church office or at the door for $10. Additional donations are always appreciated.

If you are unable to attend the concert and would like to support the work of the Bridge Board, donations are always accepted in the church office.

Refreshments will be served after the program. We hope you will join us!
