Church Service with Bagpipes : Sunday August 27 – 10am-12pm

Anybody who has ever heard bagpipes up close were probably at a funeral. However, there is another side to this instrument that isn’t quite so melancholy. Come listen to this seemingly most unorthodox instrument play for joy. Church organ, bagpipes and you all making a very loud, joyful noise.

Thom Moore is truly professional musician-bagpiper with over 3 decades of experience as a serious solo and pipe band competitor on the Great Highland Bagpipe, with more than 300 trophies and medals — including 43 “piper of the day” championships — on his record in competitions sanctioned by the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA) and the Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario, Canada (PPBSO). A certified, successful grade 1 solo competitor (grade 5 being the lowest and 1 the highest), and former member of more than a dozen competition-level pipe bands in grades 3 and 2.

A highly sought-after bagpiping instructor for individuals and bands, currently instructing the Camden County (NJ) Emerald Society Pipes & Drums. Also an accomplished public performer, having played multiple times at all of the major Philadelphia-area music and civic venues (Kimmel Center, Academy of Music, Merriam Theater, Union League, Philadelphia Convention Center, Philadelphia City Hall, etc.), a host of pubs and restaurants, as well as the entire 2013 run of performances of the Philadelphia world premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning opera “Silent Night” (based on a true World War 1 story) with the Opera Company of Philadelphia.  See Thom Moore on YouTube

“I am proud to play this great instrument, and look forward to making your special event truly memorable. One of my heartfelt goals as a highly experienced, well-trained, and certifiably accomplished bagpiper is to educate folks about how truly amazing the bagpipe can sound. This is my essential mission. The bagpipe is surely one of the noblest of all musical instruments, and whenever I play it, I am keenly aware of the great social and cultural Celtic heritage that it represents. I will continue to do my part to represent the instrument appropriately, with dignity and honor, as well as, of course, some good fun.”   – Thom Moore

Vieng Xai, Laos July 2017

Church Members raised an additional $21,000 to be used to continue building The Jason School in a remote village in the jungles of this impoverished country. Prior to this gift to the village, the church had raised close to $40,000. The church also has commitments of about $20,000 to finish the block and mortar school by years end. The school will be attended by more than 250 elementary school age students. In addition to funds already spent and committed, another $10,000 is sought to make the school more girl friendly. Want to help? Send a check made out to Stockton Presbyterian Church and on the memo line write in Jason School.
