There is no admission charge for the concert or reception. An offering will be collected. The proceeds from this event will be donated to Luther Seminary in St. Paul in support of Leslie Neist, of Albert Lea, who is enrolled in the master of divinity program. Supplemental funds will be provided by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

Seven years ago, the sacred concert idea was formed by the Rev. Peter Soli, Stu Potter and Bette Fulton as a mission that the church could do to help in the support of pastoral ministry.
