Soul’d Out!

We are one week away from our spring concert and fundraiser!

Though the loss of Janice Scroggins leaves a hole in the community as well as the choir, she would want the show to go on. We must do what we do.

Thus, we are dedicating our spring concert to the memory of our beloved Janice and hope you will join us in song next Saturday.

There will be a bake sale directly following the concert in the adjacent Tabor Space café. Please stay after the show for coffee, tea, and baked goods, and share your love of Janice and gospel with the choir.

Spring Has Sprung

Spring has been busy for PIGC.

In March we had the opportunity to sing praises with the Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church for the first and hopefully not last time.

The month of April was packed with an array of joyous festivities. We started things off with a Gospel Brunch show at The World Famous Kenton Club. We look forward to repeating this fun event in the future.

The same week we participated in an employee volunteer recognition event for Kaiser Permanente. Hosted by our own Ron Shoals, this award event recognized staff that had volunteered in the local community as well as abroad. We were joined by Ken Berry and the Faubion Elementary School Choir, Janice Scroggins, and Arietta Ward.

The following weekend we were honored to be welcomed by The Kingdom Harvest Ministries, an African-based congregation at the Gateway Church in NE Portland. This Palm Sunday concert helped raise funds for a school project in Liberia.

Stay tuned to see what other exciting events we have for the end of our spring term.
