Lincolnville — HeartSong, a community-based chorus, will sing Sunday, March 16, at 4 p.m. at the United Christian Church, 18 Searsmont Road/Route 173, Lincolnville Center. This is the second program in the Lenten season Music and Reflection series; the 45-minute program will offer music, seasonal readings and time for quiet reflection. All are welcome.

HeartSong is a volunteer chorus that offers songs of comfort and peace to those who are in ill health or who are approaching the end of life. Their calming, soft harmonies can open hearts, ease fears and bring comfort to everyone present including family members and caregivers. The music is selected to be sensitive to the physical and emotional state of the patient and to suit their musical and spiritual preferences. Members of HeartSong are available to sing in private home, hospital rooms, nursing homes and hospice settings. For more information or to schedule a HeartSong service, contact Jean Goldfine at 338-3080.

The United Christian Church was built in 1821, is on the National Registry of Historic Places and is fully handicapped accessible. Donations will benefit HeartSong's service to the community. For more information, call Mary Schulien, UCC Music Director, at 785-3521.
