Bell Street Fellowship Hall

Presenter: Marge Adler, pianist/arranger

Marge Adler, pianist/arranger, is relied upon by colleagues across North America for her collaborative skills, keyboard mastery and eclectic approach. Known as a "treasure with at least three hands,"  Marge was co-composer with the late Tom Luckay and music director for If Chagrin Could Sing, a collection of original songs about Chagrin Falls. She has collaborated in concert with David Cangelosi of the Metropolitan Opera and Phillip Boykin of renown on Broadway. There were days in which Marge would literally change hats on I-71, after serving as organist for a Cleveland Indians game, to become harpsichordist for the Bach Festival at Baldwin Wallace University. 

Recently Marge completed the musical score for the film, Exact Change, presently competing for a slot at the Sundance Film Festival.

Music with Randy Fusco

Randy is creating an amazing musical program for us. He will incorporate information with his impassioned interpretation of musical scores. The theme is going to be a surprise, but we might leak some information as we get closer to the date.

In case you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Randy, he is a professor of music at Hiram College and a frequently heard piano musician for Federated's many programs. You may also have seen him play duets on the piano with Marcia Snavely, our organist.  How does that work?  You'll have to ask him! 

Movie Night: Sponsored by Social Justice Advocacy Ministry

Family Life Center Youth Room

Movie: “Plastic Ocean”


Why this movie? The Earth Day Network ( is focusing on Ending Plastic Pollution for this year’s Earth Day awareness. Plastic is taking over our oceans and infesting all living life in our seas around the globe. In the center of the Pacific Ocean, ocean gyre researchers found more plastic than plankton.


“Plastic Ocean” documents the newest science, showing how plastics, once they enter the oceans, break up into small particulates that enter the food chain where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins are stored in seafood’s fatty tissues, and eventually consumed by us. We are all affected by this, and we can do something about it.


Everyone is invited to attend the movie and conversation. Come, and bring a friend!

Noah's Ark Encounter with Overnight in Covington, KY

Saturday & Sunday, May 19-20

Noah’s Ark Encounter

With Overnight in Covington, KY

Saturday & Sunday, May 19-20

(Open to Primetime participants and the entire Federated family!)

While we do not see any extended rain in the forecast, at least for 40 days and 40 nights, we do know of a fellow named “Noah” who was spared from a flood by loading his family and many of the world’s animals into an Ark that he built from instructions he had been given. Although no one has ever discovered the “original Ark,” we will be seeing a new version, which was built in a similar fashion.

It was built as described in the Book of Genesis using the original dimensions. The ark is 510 feet long, 50 feet tall and 85 feet wide. Unbelievably, it can house up to 10,000 people and is the largest wooden timber structure in the world. See how Noah and his family may have lived, as well as an “animatronic Noah” who will answer questions.

Cost: $325 per person. Call 440.247.6490 to register.

Full payment due by April 19. Max 54 passengers.
