More than 70 members and friends filled our downstairs hall on February 28th for an evening of music, laughter, performance, fellowship and celebration. The 2015 edition of our mostly-annual coffee house, The Blue Horse Café, was a tremendous success.

Some first photos are below. (More to come!)

Thanks to the organizing team of Kathy McLay, Scott Donovan, Kathryn Waugh and Kate King-Fisher; Donna Harris’s Covenant Group for their hours of dedicated work in the kitchen; and many others for their contributions — promotion, tickets, coordinating the performers, sound, lighting and many decorative touches.

And thanks to Dave Wells as emcee, and all the brave and generous performers among us, from seasoned pros to newcomers who dared to take the monthly theme of vulnerability to heart.

This event raised nearly $1,000 for the Fellowship.
