Save the date for Lawrence Habitat's Music Fest

Save the date for Music Fest! Hear local church choirs sing for Lawrence Habitat on February 10 from 6-8 p.m. at First United Methodist Church, 946 Vermont St.

Music Fest gives local churches a chance to come together and share the gift of song, all while promoting Lawrence Habitat for Humanity. While the event is free and open to the public, donations are accepted.

First United Methodist Church is hosting Music Fest this year. Their director of music and worship, Sara Wentz, is putting together the program and coordinating the participating church choirs.

NEW this year — Dr. Matthew Potterton, the director of chorale activites at Baker University, will be conducting the all-choir number at the end of the program. Dr. Potterton has conducted the choruses for the Baker University’s Annual Christmas Candlelight Vespers since he was hired by Baker in 2009. You can read more about Dr. Potterton here.

The churches performing at Music Fest are: First United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church, Peace Mennonite, Trinity Lutheran, Good Shepherd Lutheran and Corpus Christi Catholic Church.

This year, Lawrence Habitat’s covenant churches are sponsoring a Building on Faith house. The Music Fest is just one way that our churches help provide funding for the materials that go into a Lawrence Habitat home.
