to be followed by a reception
Pullen Memorial Baptist Church
1801 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC
EVERYONE – from any faith or no faith background – is welcome to this annual event.
As people of all faith traditions who fully affirm lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals, we recognize that our support at this moment must be evermore important and visible as LGBTQ hostility in social environments is increasing.
As a show of love, support and our desire to promote peace in the lived experience of our LGBTQ families, affirming congregations and clergy across the Triangle region are hosting the first annual Interfaith Pride Service to kick off Pride Week in North Carolina.
We invite you to come and join in this remarkable event and hear from community and faith leaders.
Join us at Pullen Park for a wonderful time of fellowship and great food! The church will provide the the meats, drinks, and dinnerware, and you provide the side dishes and desserts. Lots of great activities are available at Pullen Park for youth (and those who are young at heart)!

Dru Bex and the Strange Days, Long Nights Tour of artists have had to change their travel plans and will no longer be able to perform in Raleigh.
THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
Working with the booking agents, we are glad to announce that Shopé, the 2019 Searchlight award winner, Atlanta-based hip-hop artist Uzuhan, Canadian Christian hip-hop artist Yohan (AyoYohan aka Yohan Duraisami), and Raleigh busker/street performer Sylas will be our featured performers on Tuesday, April 30 at St. John’s MCC.
We realize that some ticket holders may be disappointed that their favorite artist will not be able to perform. However, we ask that you consider attending anyway to support the COAH Foundation & Community Centers. You may just discover a new favorite Hip-Hop artist.
Thank you for your understanding and see you next Tuesday.
Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated but are not required. For those able, the suggested amount is $15 per person and will be collected during the concert.
Proceeds will support the COAH (City On A Hill) Foundation and Community Center.
Doors open at 5 pm
While Christian Hip-Hop is theme-and-language appropriate for all ages, concert venues are loud and can cause hearing damage in children. We highly advise the use of ear protection by children under 12 and you consider seating in the viewing room for children 6 and under.
