Concert Offers More Than Food and Music

| |

Known as the Cup Noodle Concert, this annual event, held the third time in Mill Creek, Wash., seeks to help people in need in the city deepen their connections to Jesus.

More than 70 people of various ethnicities gathered at Mill Creek Community Christian Reformed Church to hear musicians, including a drumming group from the Fraser Valley in British Columbia. The concert was in support of a neighborhood relief program.

The event was organized by Seattle Dream CRC. Rev. Bomsu Kim, the church’s lead pastor, gave thanks to volunteer musicians and said “We are excited to launch this Cup Noodle Concert beyond the Korean community. It challenges our neighbor churches and Christians to think about service, evangelism, and even Christian identity.”

Attendees brought soup, canned goods, other food and blankets, and cash to help those in need through the Aurora Commons Community Center in Seattle, started by Awake CRC.
