Church in the Round marks 10th anniversary

In the 1990s, Myers Park United Methodist Church, a large, wealthy, white church in the heart of large, wealthy, white Myers Park, sought to reach out across race lines and attract nonwhite members. One of their instruments of change was musician Thomas Moore.

Moore, a longtime educator of children through music, began leading the music for a new service called Church in the Round. He routinely recruited singers from black churches, and has been an indefatigable recruiter for participation at Myers Park Methodist.

On Sunday, he was lauded for his work by both senior pastor James Howell and visiting preacher Ron Robinson (see below).
