Family Promise’s Ministry for Homeless Children & Families

The DuPont Diversity Choir was formed in 1991 by volunteers to sing for the DuPont celebration in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The 45 choir members differ in age, ethnic and religious background, and occupation, but have in common a desire to make a joyful noise in support of Dr. King's dream. Please invite your family and friends to this wonderful evening concert of spirituals starting at 7:00 p.m. in the newly refreshed sanctuary of Limestone Presbyterian Church.

You are invited to come early for a community potluck supper at 6:00 p.m. Bring a main dish, salad or dessert to share and enjoy a feast with friends and neighbors.

A freewill offering at the concert will go to support Family Promise’s work for the homeless children and their families in New Castle County. You can learn more about this group supported by 17 area churches at

Since its formation the DuPont Diversity Choir has sung for numerous corporate events, as well as at community events sponsored by organizations like the Music School of Delaware, the Festival of Spirituals, the Kennett Symphony of Chester County and the City of Wilmington. The choir is under the direction of C. Lawler Rogers, Sr. who has had a distinguished career as a music educator, arts administrator, performer, conductor, and organizer and promoter of multicultural activities. He is familiar to many in this area as the Supervisor of Fine Arts for the Brandywine School District until his retirement in 1998. He has conducted numerous groups, including The Ardensingers, The Brandywiners, Ltd. and OperaDelaware, and conducted the composition “Hallelujah Handel” with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra. He was honored with the Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts in the category of Arts Education in 2000 and the Christi Award for outstanding achievement in Arts Education in 2005.
