Echoes of Faith sings in Waldoboro

Echoes of Faith

Waldoboro — A new year and a new decade have begun and the Waldoboro Word of Life Church invites the public to spend a delightful evening with new and old friends enjoying a potluck supper and gospel concert with Echoes of Faith on Saturday, Jan. 18. The concert starts at 7 p.m. and is preceded by a potluck supper at 5:30 p.m.

Gospel music fans are probably familiar with two of the members of Echoes of Faith, Cindy Campbell Frith and her husband Bill Frith of New England’s First Family of Gospel Music — The Campbells. Cindy and Bill 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. An “echo” is defined as “a sound or series of sounds caused by the reflection of sound waves from a surface back to the listener” and one definition of “faith” is “complete trust or confidence in someone or something." This trio has complete trust and confidence in God, and their music is a reflection of other great gospel music groups.

About 30 years ago, the Waldoboro Word of Life Church started hosting monthly gospel music concerts and the popular Maine family, The Campbells, were the first. At that time the “little brown church on the hill” (Coles Hill on Old Route One) was called The Waldoboro Pentecostal Assembly. The church was founded by Vernon Carter, the grandfather of the church’s current pastor of the past 31 years, 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. Round up some food to share and enjoy some great music, ministry and fellowship.
