This Sunday, April 10th, 2016, Eddie Manion will be performing at the contemporary 9:00 AM church service we call "St.Paul's@9."
As part of a long and distinguished career, Eddie was the saxophonist on several Bruce Springsteen and Southside Johnny records.
He will be playing with the St.Paul's@9 musical lineup on all the songs throughout the entire church service. He will joined by George S. Robson 4 and PJ Rasmussen, along with Eddie's guests: Jeff Levine, Joe Grushecky, Rob Dye and a string quartet.
During the service, his instrumental versions of “Amazing Grace” and “A Change is Gonna Come" will be videotaped.
Eddie will be a featured artist at Light Of Day Australia for two shows, July 22nd and 23rd, 2016 in Ocean Grove, Victoria in Australia, raising money to defeat Parkinson’s disease and related illnesses such as PSP and ALS within our lifetime.
He would like to use this occasion and his trip to Australia to re-kindle a spirit of goodwill, peace and love between Ocean Grove, New Jersey and Ocean Grove, Victoria. The two Ocean Groves were founded by the same Camp Meeting Methodists in 1869 and 1887 respectively.
Eddie will fly to Australia with the videos of “Amazing Grace” and “A Change is Gonna Come,” along with letters from St Paul’s Church, the people of Ocean Grove, NJ and the Light Of Day Foundation. He plans to arrive in Ocean Grove, Victoria on July 18th, record his performance there on July 22nd and 23rd, and return to us with a video and letters from the people and officials of Ocean Grove, Victoria and Light of Day Australia.
Please spread the word about this Sunday as an opportunity to bring friends old and new to hear Pastor John's message on God's Grace through Jesus Christ and to sing some songs in the name of our Lord. Please also pray for this to be an opportunity to worship with some new friends and share the love of Jesus directly.
Come to St. Paul’s Methodist Church, 80 Embury Avenue, Ocean Grove, NJ, for the "St.Paul's@9" service which is always open to the greater general public.
This time in New Jersey. Next time, perhaps in Australia!
