Olivet Nazarene University Jazz Combo In Concert Nov. 10th

Sunday, November 10th at 3 pm the Jazz Combo Turnaround from Olivet Nazarene University will perform a concert in our beautiful sanctuary.  The group consists of 8 members under the direction of Associate Professor Freddie Franken.  Freddie was born and raised in Aruba, went to Berklee School of Music in Boston, and in December will have completed his Masters Degree in Jazz Performance from the University of Illinois.  He is an incredibly gifted guitarist and all around musician.  His passion for music and teaching is intense.  He helps students become the best players they can be.

Parking will be in the Rec Center Parking Lot across the street (Indiana Ave) from our building.  A sign will clearly indicate this.

We hope you will make time to come and hear and support these students.  A reception will follow after the concert.  

A free-will offering will be collected to help fund this and future concerts.

If you have any questions you can call the church office at 815.693.3289 or drop an email to 

Mission Statement: Steeped in history and tradition, First Presbyterian Church of Kankakee is dedicated to presenting Biblical principles through creative means that connect to your world. Our strategy is “Building Family.” We are a group of people who love and care for one another, experiencing true Biblical community. 

Overview: First Presbyterian is a church steeped in history and tradition.  High ceilings, a nave design, and a gently sloping floor make virtually every seat a good one.  Surrounded by beautiful stained glass windows, hearing the magnificent 34-rank 3 manual Keates pipe organ or our beautiful grand piano is truly a moving experience in this beautiful space.

We hope you can join us for worship!
