Advent Lutheran Church of Mill Creek will present a concert to benefit the congregation’s Christmas Basket Ministry on Saturday, November 18, 2017, at 4:00 pm at the church.
Highlighting the concert will be a performance of contemporary folk and Americana music by Advent member Emily Hamner and her father, Jeff Rohr. Father and daughter have been performing concerts together for over twenty years, a shared love of music that began in childhood. “I’ve been singing with my dad my whole life,” said Emily.
The duo has recorded a CD, which will be available at the concert. They will be joined by Emily's brother Jake—bassist for Seattle’s “Friday Mile”— in performing the music of James Taylor, Brandi Carlile, Mark Knopfler, and others.
Proceeds from a free will offering, as well as 100% of the sales of Emily and Jeff’s CD, will benefit the Christmas Basket Ministry.
According to the church’s pastor, Scott Postlewait, “Our Christmas Basket Ministry will distribute a full Christmas meal to 125 local families this year.”
The concert is open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
Advent Lutheran Church is located at 4306 132nd St. SE, Mill Creek. For more information, phone the church at (425) 337-5373.
