Calvary Baptist Church

October 18, 2018

A couple weekends ago, we had a “free” Friday evening with no scheduled meetings, so Pastor Jim Newcomer in Ypsilanti, Michigan invited us to their church to hold an Irish Concert for the evening! Alicia Newcomer (our resident pianist/accordionist) and her family moved from Virginia Beach, VA to Ypsilanti, MI two years ago to pastor at Calvary Baptist Church. It was such a treat to play at their church, and we are excited with them for the new renovations that have just taken place!

Our team ate a wonderful taco dinner with the Newcomers beforehand, and then following the concert, there were apple donuts and hot cider for all to enjoy while mixing with the team for a bit! It was a crisp night outside, so cider was the perfect addition to the evening.

In the days following our time in Ypsilanti, Alicia received texts from her dad and friends in the church sharing how the evening and the gospel message had impacted some individuals. Praise the Lord!

Though short, we were thankful for the special opportunity to spend an evening with friends. Will and Christy have known Pastor Jim and Lori Newcomer for many, manyyyy years, and it was sweet to watch and be a part of friends doing ministry alongside each other.

“Never underestimate the value of friendships forged by ministry.”
