In addition to helping fund all the critical initiatives here at Center Church, this concert will also directly benefit other efforts to address food and housing security, and social and racial justice issues here in the Pioneer Valley. A portion of the proceeds will be also shared with each of the following organizations critical to these efforts:


HEALTH & SAFETY UPDATE: In order to safely attract the largest crowd with the greatest level of comfort, we have recently enhanced our policy and protocol for the evening. For the health, safety, and comfort of all attendees, Center Church will require all attendees to show proof of FULL vaccination (a CDC vaccination card, copy or photo, and a photo ID) upon arrival and wear a face covering while in the building. The concert will limit audience size, observe and enforce this protocol, and implement distanced seating, as able.


Please direct any questions  to any member of the Stewardship Team (Brian Lapis, John Anz, Gretchen LaBonte, and Jane Markarian). More soon – stay tuned….
