From May through October our two-hour 'Concerts On The Creek' (typically Saturday events, although there are exceptions) start at 7pm. From November through April, most are matinees that start at 3pm. Our Sunday 'Inspiration On The Creek' events are one-hour matinees, and they start at 3pm. Doors open one hour before each concert. Seating capacity is 150. An online pre-concert donation ($5 minimum - refer to the list above) ensures you'll be counted in the 150 maximum regardless of your arrival time. Don't like online giving? Pledge to attend by phoning 815.979.1949 or emailing, and we'll hold your seat until 30 minutes before concert start time.  Or, just come to the concert and hope there's a seat. The suggested minimum 'at-the-door' donation is $10, but all amounts are welcome. <Click here for more details about our concert history, sponsors, and donation options>.    Visit our Facebook Page for More Events.

We are grateful for the sponsorship of Downtown Discount Drugs and OBrien & Dobbins Pharmacy. The outreach mission of the concert initiative is to provide a venue for affordable live music in the local community, and financial assistance may be available for those who find our attendance donations a hardship. Please leave a message for our volunteer coordinators at or at (815) 877-2576. 

For those who want to support more of our church's outreach initiatives, opportunity to contribute directly to our current PayIt4ward recipient will also offered at each concert, continuing a tradition that began in 2018 and has benefited many worthy non-profits in Rockford and the wider community.
