Season four of Music with a Mission finishes on a high note despite the snow


Over 200 people attended our last Music with a Mission Concert on Friday, February 22, despite a terrible snow storm which came through the Front Range that evening. The concert, which featured Bennie L. Williams Spiritual Voices raised over $1,800 for our mission partner, Colorado Haiti Project (CHP). The Executive Director of CHP, Wynn Walent, was coming down from Lafayette to make our mission presentation, and he spent three and a half hours on I-25 stuck in the storm. He barely made it to Good Shepherd in time to give the presentation at the end of the concert.

Despite the cold and snow, the sanctuary was filled with beautiful music and many smiling faces.

At the start of the second half of the program, parishioner Marge Pegula surprised DeeDee Atwood with flowers and a plaque of achievement recognizing her for her work on the series.

Season four finished by raising almost $7,000 for our mission partners, and our grand total to date for all four seasons is just over $34,000.

Congratulations to all of our volunteers who work on our series. We would not be able to do this outreach project without your gracious giving of your time, talents, and financial support.

Season five will begin this fall, so stay tuned for our Angel Sponsor fundraiser this summer. We are also looking to attract three new $1,000 Corporate Sponsors this next season to help offset the costs of our series. If you know of a company that would be interested in helping us, please contact DeeDee Atwood at

Thanks again to all of our volunteers!
