ELKHART — Two local churches will be getting into the Elkhart Jazz Festival spirit Sunday, June 23.

Two jazz festival artists, clarinetist Dave Bennett and trumpeter Bria Skonberg, will make an appearance for a jazz worship service at 10 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 200 E. Beardsley Ave. The two musicians will be accompanied by percussionist Jim Bollero, bassist Sean Patrick and First Presbyterian Church keyboardist Celia Weiss.

Just a mile north, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Elkhart, 1732 Garden St., will have a jazz brunch potluck and service at 10 a.m. Chris French and Friends will perform.

Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr raised more than a few eyebrows a year ago when he took the city into bankruptcy and predicted it would be out by the time his term expired in fall 2014. Because it is by far the largest city to file for municipal bankruptcy and the issues were so complex many experts predicted it would take years to resolve. But the city will take a major step toward that goal with a trial in federal bankruptcy court that starts Tuesday, Sept 2, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)
