Rockland Congregational Church, 180 Limerock St., will host a special bluegrass worship service Sunday, Nov. 13, at 10 a.m. featuring the local Miners Creek bluegrass band. Following the service, there will be an art show featuring the graphite, pastel and oil paintings of band member, and longtime bird watcher, Resa Randolph (see link below).

Since 2013, the Randolph family — Resa, her husband Whitney and daughter Emily — have been making music that follows the bluegrass tradition of incorporating gospel, country, rock and folk music using fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin and voice to create an inspiring sound that evokes the natural world and the human experience.

There will be a goodwill offering taken to support the Pastor’s Discretionary Fund of Rockland Congregational Church, which supports those in Knox County who need rent support, heating oil and electricity, food, car repairs and other immediate needs that present themselves.

All are welcome to the 10 a.m. Bluegrass Worship Service, followed by the Sanctuary Gallery art opening at 11:15 a.m. Parking is available in the upper-level lot.
