Pastor Michael Jackson and the Triune Baptist Church in East Hampton will hold its inaugural Gospel Music and Dinner Gala on Saturday, September 14, from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Polish Hall in Riverhead.
The church, which currently operates out of another house of worship, first secured 4.2 acres of land on Route 114 in East Hampton in 1993, in hopes of building a place of worship there. To date, the church has raised more than 10 percent of its total fundraising goal of $600,000, according to a statement on the church’s website.
The gala, planned as an annual event, is intended to move the church nearer to its goal of its own house of worship. Local churches, social organizations, and dignitaries from the North and South Forks are planning to attend the event.
Tickets are $50 per person, or $490 for 10. For additional information or to purchase tickets, call (631) 617-6320, or visit www.TriuneBaptistChurch.com.
