University Students to Host Community Worship Event


Multnomah University student Carl Laws has organized a community worship event on Saturday, May 12, titled Going Back to the Heart of Worship. Laws will headline the event and feature fellow student Hannah Glavor. Both musicians are motivated by a desire to bless the community in a time of worship that features something for everyone in a variety of musical styles.


Doors open at 6:00 pm. The concert begins at 7:00 pm.


The concert will be held in Lytle Gymnasium, located on Multnomah's campus at 8435 Northeast Glisan Street in Portland.


A $3 donation at the door will benefit The Mentoring Project.


"It is my heart's passion to bring the Multnomah student body, local churches, and the Portland community together for a Night of Worship," Carl Laws said. "I am inspired by many types of music - especially different types of worship music - so it will be fun to have a little something for everyone."

"It's not just through music that I want to impact the community," adds Laws. "I'm especially passionate about impacting the lives of others. This is why we chose to have proceeds from the event go directly to the work that The Mentoring Project is doing in the lives of those who are fatherless."
