TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

One Temple Church is singing out to help the community one note at a time.

Christ Episcopal Church in Temple kicked off their second year of the "Music to Help Others" concert series geared toward raising money for non-profit organizations.

"Each organization is stretching themselves thin to reach out to people and help with the demand so each time we have one of these we bring a different person to the table, a different organization, to tell us what they are doing and how we can be a part of it." Rector of Christ Episcopal Church, Justin Yawn said.

A Temple-based organization was the recipient of the proceeds from Sunday's concert.

"Churches Touching Lives for Christ is a conglomerate of a bunch of churches, they are their own organization but a bunch of us support it and essentially it takes care of a lot of different ministries. From medicine ministries to food ministries to housing," Yawn said.

And thanks to the concert series, Churches Touching Lives for Christ will now get the much needed help they have been looking for.

"We work with a lot of people in transitional living that have nothing. we work with some folks that get out of prison, they get out with very little, also it will help some of the seniors that we have when we need things. So this money will help us to be able to buy some things to help to help them," CTLC Director, Jim Hornsby said.

Though the series has just begun, they have already set a date for their next concert. The Temple High School Choir has already signed on to sing at the next concert on Nov. 5, Yawn said that concert will benefit Aware Central Texas.
