Sounds of Promise 2016

St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church hosted the 4th annual “Sounds of Promise,” (1/31/16) an interfaith concert raising funds for Family Promise of South Palm Beach County, a local non-profit dedicated to empowering families making their transition from homelessness to sustainable independence.

Referred to as “an unusual example of religious cooperation among three faiths” by the Sun Sentinel, Family Promise SPBC unites this diverse group of volunteers “responding to God’s call to help the most vulnerable among us,” according to Reverend Andrew Sherman, the driving force behind the local affiliate, and MC of this year’s concert. The volunteers represent nineteen different houses of worship. Mayor Haynie of Boca Raton attended to share her support this wonderful cause.

Tim Brumfield, Director of Music and Organist at St. Gregory’s, opened the concert with “Overture” which set the harmonious tone for the afternoon.  The event featured a variety of performances including several church choirs, B’nai Torah Congregational Choir, Banyan Creek Elementary Drumline and readings from The Islamic Center Boca Raton.  The Grand Finale “We are the World” was led by Lisa McKenzie from Abundant Life Christian Center as the audience stretched across the aisles to join hands.

Kokie Dinnan, Executive Director, reflects, “I believe that Family Promise brings our faith community together to serve the most vulnerable children and their families experiencing homelessness.”
