Rachel Spry Lammi & Wilma Meckstroth will present a Benefit Concert of Piano and Organ duets and solos on Sunday, Aug. 24 at 3 p.m. at The Lutheran Church of Our Savior in Oakwood. This concert is part of The Lutheran Church of Our Savior summer project called A Time to Grow. On June 1 of this year, each member of the congregation, that was present at worship, was given $50 to grow for harvest and return on Sept. 7. The proceeds of the A Time to Grow project will benefit organizations here in Dayton and around the world.
Benefiting in Dayton are Jeremiah’s Letter, a Christian organization which works to enhance the daily lives of individuals and families of the city of Dayton who find themselves in need; and Christ
Lutheran Church, which does outreach ministry in its Old North Dayton neighborhood. Globally, the proceeds of this concert will also benefit the Noestros Pequenos Hermanos orphanage in the Dominican Republic, where The Lutheran Church of Our Savior Youth Group just completed a mission trip; and Emmelyne Nizeimana, a Rwandan refugee living in South Africa, whose father was a member of The Lutheran Church of Our Savior until he passed away. The joyful, uplifting and soul quenching music on the program includes Mozart, Handel, Vivaldi, Goemanne, and several arrangements of favorite gospel and folk hymns. A suggested donation of $10 is appreciated from concertgoers.
