On Saturday, April 30th the Webster Groves Christian Church sanctuary was transformed into a cabaret for an evening of fun, food, fellowship, and A Little Help from my Friends. This musical tribute concert of Beatles music was performed by the congregation's praise band Wind of the Spirit.

The event was a fundraiser for local ecumenical organization Webster-Rock Hill Ministries which provides food, emergency assistance, tutoring, and other community support. Though the concert itself was free, over $1,500 was raised for the cause through the raffling of a Beatles box set, contributions for the refreshments, and general donations.

The following Sunday morning brought a 'Beatles service' where the removal of a traditional sermon time made way for several musical selections from the night before and brief reflections of their related faith themes.
