Bring Great Jazz Musicians to St. Paul\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\


New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz and home to many world renowned jazz musicians today. In 2014, St. Paul's UCC hired local jazz pianist, Mark Coleman, as our music director. Mark's musical talent has brought energy and artistry to worship which has helped to revive our congregation. For a brief while Mark brought his friends, all world renowned jazz musicians, to accompany him on Sunday mornings at St. Paul's. Unfortunately, balancing our small congregation's budget meant cutting back this incredible service. Your donations will allow us to bring back these incredible musicians to enliven our worship! Imagine listening to Ellis Marsallis' saxophonist play "I'll Fly Away," as the congregation sings and claps along. Your donation will make that a reality for St. Paul's UCC!
