Young at Heart Luncheon
featuring Steve Long, Pianist
Thursday, January 27
12-1:30PM IN THE DBC DINING ROOM
Steve Long started playing the piano at the tender age of four, and has been playing ever since. He studied under Gladys Pinkston, who in turn studied under Sergei Rachmaninoff, the Russian composer, virtuoso pianist and conductor. Steve gets his inspiration from Roger Williams and Liberace, and has played in grand hotels all over the world. He has toured with Cary Grant, performed in two concerts with Liberace, and has even worked with Ethel Merman. Steve is especially fond of Gershwin and show tunes, which you will have the pleasure of hearing when he comes to play for us!

Healthcare & Referral Advice
This pastoral care ministry is available for members and friends of the Dunwoody Baptist Church community. At no cost to participants, we provide advice, recommendations and introductions to those who are recovering from illness or injury, or who are facing difficult decisions related to aging and are in need of resources.
The leader of this ministry, Fran Weigard, is particularly knowledgeable about home care services and providers, hospice care options and long term residential communities. She is available to answer questions, encourage families and connect patients with providers. There is no charge for this assistance. We simply see this ministry as a way to serve our family here at Dunwoody Baptist.

DBC's Visitation Ministry provides a sense of fellowship, belonging and involvement to those who aren't able to get out and about as easily as they used to. We also work to connect these church members to additional DBC ministries that can help them with other needs they may have.
