Friends of Music
The contributions to Friends of First Community Church Music make up approximately two-thirds of the funds for the Concert Series events. This help, plus the offerings at the events, forms the entire budget. Friends of First Community Church Music provides support for:
Annual Concert Series
Exceptional musical events, including the Candlelight Christmas Concert, pops programs, visiting choirs, instrumental and vocal guest soloists and chamber music performances.
Special Sunday Services
