First Congregational Church of Stratford will hold its annual New Orleans-style jazz worship service, “Fat Sunday” on Sunday, February 7, 2016.

The musical service reflects similar events in New Orleans’ churches at this festive pre-Lenten season.

Headlining the service will be Vintage Brass Quintet of Milford, accompanied by Dr. Joe Utterback on piano and Brian Coralian on percussion.   Vocalists Michael Jovovich and Jackie Ray will also perform, as will the church’s senior choir.  A special free will offering will be collected to benefit the Back Bay Mission of Biloxi, Mississippi, which is continuing to help those still recovering from Hurricane Katrina.

First Congregational Church is located at 2301 Main Street, Stratford.

Service begins at 10:00AM.  All are welcome.  For more information,  call 203- 378-2644.
