‘Share the Love Concert’ to feature several area performers


MIDDLESEX—Christ Church Parish (Episcopal) in Saluda invites everyone to a concert benefiting St. Paul’s Baptist Church in Jamaica.

St. Paul’s Baptist Church was destroyed by a fire in November 2018. While the ashes were still smoldering, Reverend Dunn, the church pastor, met with his congregation and while looking at the devastation said, “We have not lost our church. We have just lost the building.”

Construction has begun on the replacement building but the contents need to be replaced. Christ Church Parish offered to raise funds to help with this. Thus, the “Share the Love Concert” was born. It has now become a true community event. Many local businesses and community organizations have already made generous donations.

Several local performers, including George Robinson, Clayton Neal, Gary Archer, Beth Justice and Morgan Stewart, and Paige and Randy Melton, immediately offered to donate their time and talent to this most worthy cause.

Plan to attend and invite your friends to join you at the Share the Love Concert on Saturday, February 15, from 3-5 p.m. at St. Clare Walker Middle School at Locust Hill. The concert is free. A “love offering” will be collected at the doors. All proceeds will go to benefit St. Paul’s Baptist Church.

If you are unable to attend, or would like to send your offering in advance, you are encouraged to send a check, payable to “Christ Church Parish,” with the notation “donation for St. Paul’s Baptist,” to Christ Church Parish, P.O. Box 476, Saluda, VA 23149.
