Art For Faith’s Sake
Dear Friends of Music,
We are excited to present another season of inspiring music in the beautiful sanctuary of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. This series of free, professional quality performances is powered by the generosity of its patrons and sponsors. We continue to strive to fulfill our community-driven mission by again offering opportunities to give back through Concerts for a Cause. Last January, we received over 500 pairs of socks which were given to unhoused residents in the Largo/Clearwater community.
Here at Prince of Peace Lutheran church, we believe that music enriches the lives of all ages spiritually, culturally, and educationally. To borrow a phrase from J.S. Bach’s cousin, Johann Walther, It is our hope that our time together experiencing these concerts “please and delight both the mind and soul.”
We hope to see you at one of our concerts soon!

PS. We welcome your contributions to our concert series fund. If you are interested in giving, visit tinyurl.com/AFFSgiving and select Art for Faith’s Sake under “Special Ministries.”
