Rock ’n’ roll service scheduled

Published 7:30 pm Thursday, June 6, 2019

A 14-year-old named Eddie Cochran was confirmed in faith at First Methodist Church on West College St. in Albert Lea 68 years ago. He later went on to write and perform songs such as “Three Steps to Heaven” and “Summertime Blues.”

United Methodist Church will join in on Albert Lea’s celebration of Cochran’s life and music by hosting a rock ’n’ roll service at 10 a.m. Sunday.

According to a press release, the service was first offered in 2007, using many hits from the ’50s, with lyrics changed by permission to make them appropriate for worship.

The service will be followed by a meal in the social hall. A free-will offering will be collected.

Those who attend are welcome to dress in their favorite ’50s attire, slick their hair back and roll up to the service in a classic car.
