Echoes of Faith returns to sing

Echoes of Faith

Waldoboro — There has been some interesting weather since Echoes of Faith last ministered at the Waldoboro Word of Life Church in early December. The trio returns Saturday, March 17, at 7 p.m. Their concert is preceded by a 5:30 p.m. potluck supper at the church, 41 Old Route 1.

Gospel music fans are probably familiar with two of the members of Echoes of Faith: Cindy Campbell Frith and her husband Bill Frith of The Campbells. They have been singing at their home church, Faith Baptist in Newcastle, and, joined by their pastor’s wife, Julie O’Donnell, formed Echoes of Faith.

About 30 years ago, the church started hosting monthly gospel music concerts; the first was by popular Maine family group The Campbells. At that time, the “little brown church on the hill” (Cole’s Hill) was called the Waldoboro Pentecostal Assembly. The church was founded by Vernon Carter, grandfather of the church’s current pastor, Thomas Rawley.

The concert tradition has continued over the years with many, primarily Maine-based, musicians sharing their music and their faith. Preceded by free potluck suppers, these concerts have attracted gospel music fans from around the state. For more information, call 446-3288.
