On Saturday, August 29th, seven local congregations came together for an Ecumenical 20150829_190146Concert at Mayflower Congregational Church to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Collier County. Thank you to all who attended and helped to raise $3,500 for Habitat Collier. That money will be matched dollar for dollar through our Congregational Matching Challenge – doubling the impact it will have on the life of a family struggling in poverty housing.

“I think it’s going to be all religious music, but I’m not positive about that. We’ll leave that up to (the performers,)” said the Rev. Alan Coe, the pastor at Mayflower. “It’s kind of to showcase the talent that we have right here.” Reported in the Naples Daily News, read more here.
