2017 Porch Concert

You are invited to the Fifth Annual Case Street Porch Concert, on Friday August 4th at 7:00pm! Just like the last four years, we are going to turn the front porch of 97 Case Street into a mini concert stage. It will be a short and sweet event for all ages and a family friendly “happening” with all the music finishing no later than 9pm.

Here is the line up:

Chrisy Hurn is the lead singer & guitar player for Basement Revolver, a popular indie rock band from Hamilton.

Dad vs Son is a mix of dance beats and spacey synthesizers. Some dads and sons spend time together by tossing around a baseball, “Dad vs Son” bonds over a battle of sound.

2x the Mono sings songs about friends, family and community. They like to mix instruments like ukulele & harmonica with synthesizers & drum machines.

Feel free to bring a lawn chair to pull up a spot on the grass or the side walk..We will also be having a Snack and Dessert Potluck, so if you want to add to the sweetness, bring something to contribute to the feast.

Please Note:

  • Keep it Family Friendly: This is an All Ages Neighborhood event so please leave any Drama and Alcohol at home.
  • Bike or Bus: There isn’t a ton of parking in the area, so if you are coming from outside the Case Street area think about taking the bus or riding your bike we can lock them up in the back Garage.
  • Help Out the Musicians: This is a free event for the people living on Case Street. If you are coming to the show from outside the neighbourhood because your are a fan of of one of the musicians, or you are part of The Commons, think about kicking in a couple bucks (or buy a CD) to help support the music.

We Value Beauty

You might think it is a little strange for a Church Community to have Beauty as one of their values. You might be asking yourself “Why are these Commoners so focused on the superficial?” That is a good question, and if we were only dealing with appearances and surfaces, I would share your concern, but we use the word “Beauty” to talk about how the Creator made a world of beauty and when we are creative and add beauty to the world we reflect our creator. On Sunday, June 19th, 2017, Becca did a great job of talking about all the places she finds Beauty and what that means to her as part of our Teaching Series on our Core Values. You can listen in below.

Becca used lots of great photos in a power point to illustrate her stories, here are some of the images she used:

At the end of our gathering Becca asked us to each write our name on a piece of paper, we then went around the room writing one thing of beauty we saw in each person. Some of the observations were very specific and others were general character traits, but everyone went home with a word picture of themselves that reflected the unique and beautiful people God has created us to be.
