The ministry and music of the trio Heaven’s Blend will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Waldoboro Word of Life Church on Old Route 1 in Waldoboro. The concert will be preceded by a potluck supper at 5:30 p.m. Those who plan to attend the concert are asked to bring some food to share and attend the supper.

This local gospel music group was formed in 2000 as a quartet. It’s also been a trio and duo. At one time there were five and then six members. Recently they’ve been a quartet again, but two of the members, Craig and Naomi Tuck, are about to become a trio themselves and are taking a break as they await the arrival of their baby. While they’re on leave, Tim Connelly is reuniting with founding members Tom Rawley and Gary Leet for some upcoming concerts.

Rawley, a Waldoboro native, has been the senior pastor of the Waldoboro Word of Life Church for more than 30 years and is also the chaplain of the Waldoboro Fire Department. Many may remember him from some other local musical groups, The Country Wranglers and Hosanna. Rawley, along with Leet, is one of the founding members of Heaven’s Blend and is a vocalist, keyboard player and composer of some of their songs.

Leet is the senior pastor of the Lisbon Free Baptist Church as well as founder and teacher of Life-changing Faith Bible Center. Leet’s musical background is that of a rock drummer and he adds vocals to Heaven’s Blend. Connelly, vocalist, is a worship leader at the Waldoboro Word of Life Church and also ministers in many area churches as Just Tim. The three of them create a special blend of music and ministry.

A second concert is planned from 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 17, during the Winter Gospel Sing at the North Waldoboro Church of The Nazarene on Route 220, Washington Road. They will be joined by Kindred Hearts, Echoes of Faith and Just Tim.
