The Trinity Praise Band of Trinity Lutheran Church, Lehighton, will hold a benefit concert for Hunger Relief at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 19. The concert will benefit the Trinity Pantry and World Vision.
Trinity's Food Pantry (a satellite of Shepherd House, Inc.) provides emergency food relief for the needy in our community. World Vision works with people in poverty in the U.S. and works with nearly 100 countries internationally in poverty and responds to when disaster strikes.
TPB has been performing for over seven years, and provides contemporary Christian music each month at one of Trinity's worship services. Band members are Brian Hoffner, acoustic and electric guitar and lead vocalist; Sue Lovejoy, keyboard; Becky McFadden, vocals and keyboards; Duane Reichard, drums and percussion; Matthew Schweitzer, acoustic and electric bass guitars; Stephen Schweitzer, acoustic and electric guitar; and Bob vonFrisch, acoustic guitar.
Guest musicians include the McFadden family, the Schweitzer family, and the Hoffner Family.
The band features the music of artists such as Aaron Shust, MercyMe, Kutless, Building 429, Casting Crowns, and many more.
A freewill offering will be taken. There will be refreshments and drinks available, from which proceeds will also benefit the pantry and World Vision.
