GOSPEL CONCERT FOR CITY MISSION
Payson Park Church and Myrtle Baptist Church of West Newton are co-sponsoring a Gospel Concert in honor of the 200th anniversary of City Mission of Boston. This local mission, which we have supported for many years, is in the forefront of preventing family homelessness in the Boston area. City Mission focuses on direct services to families on the brink of homelessness, service learning programs for cross-cultural sharing and public advocacy centered on combating poverty. The proceeds of this fund-raising concert will go to City Mission as it celebrates “A Good 200 Years of Good.” (www.citymissionboston.org) This will be a lively evening of joyous song and praise music by the choirs of Myrtle Baptist Church and Union Church of Waban, The Wilson Family Gospel Singers and a group of Payson Park singers. The master of ceremony for the evening will be The Rev. Dr. Emmett Price III, an expert on African-American music and Christian worship. Get your tickets early as we hope to fill the sanctuary with guests from the wider community. You may order tickets online by visiting the website http://citymissionboston.org/lift-every-voice; or by filling out a registration form and paying by check through the church office. Thank you for supporting City Mission and for welcoming people to our church! All are welcome to this community event.
