Zion Lutheran Church at 74 First St. will host Jazz Vespers at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4. A casual meal featuring entrees from a variety of local restaurants will precede the service at 5:30 p.m.

"Vespers" is the name of an evening service, which specifically includes prayers for the close of the day. Jazz Vespers incorporates modern elements of jazz and blues into this historic tradition.

The Jazz Vespers ensemble includes Andy Wrba, bass; Marisa Massery, vocals; Ben Kohn, piano, with guest appearances by other local musicians.

Free-will donations directly support the Jazz Vespers ministry.
