Boulder Church Holds Another Successful Porchfest »
Boulder Adventist Church joined the rest of the Mapleton Hill neighborhood for an afternoon of music and mingling on Sunday, September 16. Twenty-seven concerts by local musicians took place on porches in the area..
Boulder Church has participated in Mapleton Hill's PorchFest, which started in 2012, for the past three years. "We have been so fortunate to be a part of an event that brings our community together," commented Jessyka Albert, associate pastor for the Boulder Church. Pastors Jessyka and Japhet are both members of the committee that meets throughout the year to plan and organize the event.
This year, Boulder Church offered incredible music by the Boulder Brassaholics (an ensemble of trumpets, a tuba, and a horn) and our very own Chapels & Cathedrals collective. A big thank you to Russell and Sarah Palmer and Rebecca Murdock for sharing worshipful songs with the neighborhood, including many they had written and composed themselves. The Church offered a kids' craft table, along with information about our programs and services and ice cold drinks. We shared our church lawn and parking lot with the Museum of Boulder and The Twist food truck.
None of this would have been possible without the incredible Boulder Church members and partners who came to help, support, and enjoy the event. The organizers expressed their appreciation for all their work and support.
PorchFest, an annual event held on the third Sunday of September, originated in New York and has spread across North America with at least 60 events taking place this year. Boulder Adventist Church considers full involvement with its community to be a central component of its ministry.
