The Christian Music Cafe started October 2012. It was created by George Evans of St. Jude Catholic Church and Kenny Voit of Hebron Baptist Church. The vision is that there is so much that unites us as Christians than the differences that each Christian faith may have. The fact that the we all believe that we are saved by God through Jesus’ death on the Cross and in his Resurrection so that we may live forever with him is central to Christianity. It is with this in mind that the sharing of Christian Music brings all of us together. As we say:
This monthly ecumenical (multi-denominational) event is held in the Activity Center at St. Jude which is centrally located in the Fredericksburg Region. It is an “Open Mic” format. Each person or group can perform up to three songs. The only requirement is that they are Christian based. You never know what you will hear from month to month. There are so many styles of Christian Music that you cannot possibly hear them all or even a lot of them in Church on Sunday. This spiritually fulfilling gathering has seen many kinds of music performed: Praise & Worship, Contemporary, Gospel, Traditional, Classical Motets, etc. It truly is a cross section of Christian Music. If you sing, but do not play instrument, you can bring a CD with your music on it.
Christian Music Unites Us All!
In Paul’s letter to the Ephesians in chapter five, he wrote:
Why share your talent?
This unique monthly event relies on those who come and listen. We encourage you to bring family and friends and enjoy the music. Free snacks and beverages are provided. There is no charge or fee to come and listen. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
We ask that you help us by spreading the news about the Christian Music Cafe. We hope to see you!
Come and Listen to the beautiful music!
“… be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and playing to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks always and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.”
