Upcoming concert to benefit Haiti

River Rock Church is joining forces with talented musicians to present an exciting event that will raise money and awareness for ongoing needs in Haiti. On Saturday, April 28 at 7 p.m., Baltimore-based musicians Val Nebbia and David Parker will take the stage alongside local musicians “Rock of Ages” (featuring Gordon Thayer) and worship pastor, Cameron Blake Warne. River Rock youth will be selling crafts and homemade baked goods. The director of Christian Light Ministries in Haiti, Sherrie Fausey, is flying in from Port au Prince to share her experiences.

It’s been a little over two years since a catastrophic 7.0 earthquake left the country of Haiti in ruins, but many organizations such as Christian Light are still working tirelessly toward the country’s stability. River Rock Church and Christian Light Ministries are combing their efforts with the goal to rebuild a damaged orphanage and a new school.

General admission is $5 at the door, with 100 percent of admission proceeds and youth ministry sales going to Christian Light Ministry. River Rock Church is located at 6060 Belding Road, Rockford.
