Summer of Love 50th Anniversary Community Benefit Concert


This summer marks the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and to commemorate this occasion, First Church is hosting a community benefit concert celebrating the 5 principles the event was based on: peace, understanding, compassion, love, and a higher consciousness. To honor these principles, this event will highlight the work of local advocacy groups, allies, and partners who exemplify them and are working for positive change in our community.
