The Summer of Praise Under The Tent at the Top of The Hill (Maine Top Mill), Route 1 across from Ralph’s Homes, continues Friday, July 7, with a 7 p.m. concert by the popular local gospel group Heaven’s Blend.

Formed in 2000 as a quartet, Heaven’s Blend became a trio; a duo for a short time, a quartet again; a quintet; and, currently, a quartet.

Vocalist and keyboard player Tom Rawley has been senior pastor of the Waldoboro Word of Life Church for 30 years and also is chaplain of the Waldoboro Fire Department. Many may remember him from his days with The Country Wranglers and Hosanna. Co-founding member Gary Leet is the senior pastor of the Lisbon Free Baptist Church, as well as the founder of Life-Changing Faith Bible Center, and he adds vocals and drums. Craig Tuck is the Youth Pastor at the West Harpswell Baptist Church; he plays bass guitar and composes. The newest member is Craig’s wife, Naomi Tuck, who brings a whole new dimension to the group and their sound.

Concertgoers are invited to come back to the tent Sunday, July 9, at 6 p.m. to hear Craig Tuck share a message from God’s Word. Since it’s under a tent (there is screening to keep out most of the bugs), all events are held rain or shine and all are welcome to stop by for as long as they’re able to stay; bring a lawn chair (or a cushion) if folding metal chairs are too uncomfortable. A good will offering will be taken to help cover traveling and other expenses. For more information, call 446-3288.
