All are invited to experience the best music ministry that Long Island’s contemporary Christian recording artists have to offer as well as specialty coffees, teas, scrumptious desserts and even door prizes at CAFÉ ABLAZE Christian Coffeehouse. Open from 7:00 to 10:15 p.m. on Saturdays in late September, November, and March, the beautifully decorated and air-conditioned café is located in Lutheran Church of the Resurrection’s facilities on Emmet Place just off of Stewart Avenue. It is named for the church’s Christian outreach movement. Those purchasing tickets at the door with the lighted CAFÉ ABLAZE sign outside are welcomed in by enthusiastic volunteers wearing black tee-shirts emblazoned with the coffeehouse logo. Attendees then sit at reserved candle-lit tables below the stage and choose from a multitude of self-service treats, including ice cream and fruit salad, available on tables just outside the café kitchen. The atmosphere is friendly, casual, and Spirit-filled. Come to CAFÉ ABLAZE hungry; leave satisfied in more ways than one!
Scheduled to appear Sept. 22 is soulful contralto Long Island Christian singer, Patrizia DiLorenzo as well as five-piece Patchogue-based Rev 7 Band, named for the Book Of Revelation and led by successful secular recording industry duo, Leah and Allen Cuffey. At the café, Patrizia will sing selections from her first CD, titled “I Believe It.” Rev 7, known for lush harmonies and a jazzy rhythm and blues sound that has been described as “almost Caribbean bliss,” will perform selections from their fourth and latest CD, “Last Days.” Videos of the talent may be viewed on the Café Ablaze webpage at www.resgc.org/cafe-ablaze.
Consider joining emcee Pastor Browning and the many volunteers who make CAFÉ ABLAZE possible for this cool, Spirit-filled event.
