Don’t miss Topeka Bible Church this Sunday, piano professor from National Taiwan University of Arts will be here

Sometimes I hear others say, “I wished I hadn’t missed that.” Well, this Sunday might be one of those times.  So listen up…

There will be an extraordinary pianist here this weekend at Topeka Bible Church. You might know Sam Cho from Topeka Bible Church, a cellist studying music at Washburn University.  Sam leads the orchestra and plays guitar, drums, piano, and just about anything else.  Sam’s father, David Fu-Chien Cho teaches piano at the National Taiwan University of Arts.  David and Sam will be here this Sunday at 8am, 9:30am, and 11:00am to play during the offering and communion with Sam.  By the way, he’ll also be in concert at Washburn on Friday, March 12, 2010.
