The Ripple Effect Concert: The Ripple Effect is the unique ensemble-in-residence at Southside Christian Church (DOC), in South Bend, Indiana. Peace United Church of Christ will host The Ripple Effect for a transformative evening of music on Saturday, July 22 at 7p.m.
Not just a group of singers in a choir, The Ripple Effect is a collective truth-speaking voice in the community, by way of the enormous power of music. The concert will also include testimony from people who represent groups that are often unheard in our society. All are welcome, a free will offering will be received to support both The Ripple Effect and the Freedom School at Peace United Church of Christ.
Sharing Our Sacred Stories During Learning Hour: We all have a Sacred Story about how we got to the spiritual place we are right now. It has a beginning, middle and current spiritual place. It’s likely there are some similarities and lots of ways those stories are different. Let’s share those Sacred Stories about our spiritual lives.This isn’t a talent show. We really want to know each other’s beginning, middle and current place – what’s happening where the spirit meets the bone. The series continues: 7/23, 8/6, and 8/13. Please join us at 9:45 a.m. in the sanctuary.
