The mission of ArtsBridge is to celebrate the arts in our neighborhood and provide a space where the diversity in our community is bridged through the appreciation of music and art. In 2016, the 6th Season of ArtsBridge is underway! The programs continue to draw people together. Many members of the community began to support ArtsBridge in partnership donations as well as the church’s support.

ArtsBridge conveys the spirit of community, joy and hope these concerts bring to the community. Special thanks goes to Susan Burkholz, who has spearheaded the publicity for the events and does a lot of the nuts and bolts work behind the scenes.

Sunday – April 23 – Spring Concert and Exhibit
