Rhiannon Giddens shared with her friend and singing partner Lauralyn Dossett that she was working on a song about Charleston, and asked if Lauralyn could help with the logistics of putting together a video. Lauralyn contacted our pastors, Julie and Paul, about using our sanctuary - she has used it before to make recordings and likes the room's acoustics. Julie and Paul immediately said yes, and the video was recorded on Saturday June 27. Julie and Paul were both present that day, to make sure everything worked well, but declined the offer to appear in the video itself.

Men's Prayer Breakfast
The Men's Prayer Breakfast meets every Friday at Oakcrest Family Restaurant at 7:30 AM to share a bite and conversation. The line-up varies from week to week as schedules permit and no one has an assigned seat. The food is average to good, but the conversation is exceptional. Topics from spirituality to motor oil are heard over the rattle of silverware.
