First Congregational will host a concert performed by singer-songwriter Bobby Jo Valentine. Bobby is a multi-faceted artist from Northern California. His songs are both earthy and mystical, contemporary and contemplative, and they speak to the everyday awakenings of an openhearted spirituality.

Bobby has given a TED Talk (2018), has been awarded Song of the Year three times by the West Coast Songwriter’s Association, and is an out gay advocate for equal rights for all.

Come out and join us for an afternoon of compelling, poetic music and storytelling by Bobby Jo Valentine!
