The Holiday Concert will be the first concert performed in the Arcata Presbyterian Church since being restored after the devastating arson-set fire of September 16, 2017.

For 25 years, the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir has sung out its message of faith, hope, love and joy.  The 60-voice choir serves the North Coast region by singing at community events, fundraising benefits, memorials, churches, and for inmates at the Humboldt County jail.


Successful Prayer Breakfast

The annual, spirit-filled Prayer Breakfast was held on Mother's Day, May 14, 2017, at the Arcata Community Center.  The Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir performed with the AIGC Youth Choir and the 16-voice guest artists A Company of Voices.

The AIGC wishes to apologize to any Prayer Breakfast attendees who were offended by comments made by a community member at the event.  Although this individual was not a planned speaker, and the speech was not sanctioned by the AIGC, we acknowledge the pain that our friends of color experience and we hope to promote healing and unity through our singing and community engagement.

The AIGC thanks over 100 donors from our community for making our annual Prayer Breakfast on May 14, 2017 so successful.  We appreciate all who attended the Prayer Breakfast.
