Concerts with a Cause brings live music to our community.
Generous donors allow us to offer the concert series free of charge.
At each concert, we collect a “love offering” – not for the performers – but for a local service organization.
Christianity has always been associated with great works of art and beauty, expressing the inexpressible and transcending the earthbound. It is our prayer that these concerts will help you find God here. As we gather, we also hope to benefit service organizations which are doing good work for the Kingdom of God in our community. Since its beginning in 2003, Concerts with a Cause has donated $223,023 to 58 local organizations.
We are thrilled to announce our 2022-2023 Season!

I will confess right now that several songs about heartbreak, abandonment, loneliness and death
had me grinning from ear to ear. That’s bluegrass for you.” – Jonna Gjevre, Uncommon Places blog
