Soul Purpose hosted a unique concert experience on Saturday October 3rd, 2015. The Thanksgiving concert, held at the Kitchener Central location, featured special Christian choral groups of various denominations from the Kitchener-Waterloo area, who all came together for one joint purpose; to share in a musical evening of thanks and praise to our Heavenly Father and kick off the Thanksgiving Season on the right note!
The concert performers included The Leupold Chorale, a non-denominational ensemble ; Mount Zion Evangelical Lutheran; First United Church of Waterloo; The NAC Soul Purpose Children’s Choir; The NAC Waterloo Chinese on Strings and solo performances by 11 Year old Kaiya Winter and 95 Year old Oscar Zarnke and host, NAC Soul Purpose, with accompanying band and mini-orchestra.
Soul Purpose has come to recognize that bringing meaningful awareness to community, charitable organizations and supporting these organizations through donation efforts in association with the concerts, enrich the entire experience for the performers, the congregations and the communities.
For this special Thanksgiving concert, the congregation of 500 attendees were given the opportunity to support and learn more about the Canadian Mental Health Association. Representatives of the Waterloo-Wellington, Dufferin CMHA, were present to collect donations and share a wealth of information on how this organization works within our communities; providing a full care system for those with addictions, mental health or developmental needs. CMHA serves everyone from children to adults to seniors, all under one roof. Their programs help individuals and families to lead lives filled with meaning and promise.
It truly was a blessed evening of community worship, with praise and thanks filling the rafters and warming the hearts of all who attended.
