Andrew McKnight performing on November 9.

For the last four years, Pastor Mark has been Pastor of the Week during the same week Andrew McKnight has been Musician of the Week at Ferry Beach Retreat, near Saco, Maine.  During that time, they created a friendship which blossomed into Andrew’s concert at HSCC, Friday night.

Some of Andrew’s guitars.

Andrew drove 750 miles from his Blue Ridge Mountain, Virginia, home with four guitars, a few CDs, and a head full of songs and stories.  On a chilly night, Andrew shared the story behind each guitar and warmed Fellowship Hall with striking lyrics and his guitars.  He even got the audience to harmonize the chorus for a couple of songs.  We sounded pretty good, too; check out the YouTube video for evidence, maybe a group of Ferry Beach alumni helped achieve that.  We welcome Andrew and alums back anytime.  

Next time he comes, and he has said he would (having a sister nearby in Winterport might help), mark the date and join us for an uplifting evening of song and fellowship.
