OXON HILL, Md—Oxon Hill Baptist Church will host Caitlin Jane in concert beginning at 6 pm on March 5. The internationally known Christian songwriter, pianist and singer, is a rising star in the Christian music world, and has opened for Todd Agnew and BarlowGirl.
The artist is also an advocate for the causes for “those who are voiceless, the poor, the lost, and the little ones.” She is staunchly prolife and performed at the National March for Life Rally earlier this year and led “God Bless America,” as a final sendoff to marchers. Her newest album, “Coming Season,” includes the song, “Unborn,” and “Sing Over us.” In addition, Caitlin Jane has been an advocate for Compassion International for a decade.
Recently, the singer experienced a life-changing event after surviving critical brain surgery to remove a tumor. Three cranial nerves, an artery, and the brain stem was involved. She was completely helpless during her recovery, cared for by her family.
As she was healing, her boyfriend, now husband, was diagnosed with cancer and he had to endure nine weeks of agonizing chemotherapy.
In her blog, Jane writes, “No matter what suffering he endured, he continually had dignity, value, and displayed the glory of the image of God, in whose likeness he was created. In Jamie’s weakest moments, in his suffering, in this unplanned course of events, life was precious. Those moments are the ones I will never forget. Moments of needing one another, because our lives depended on it. Moments of fear, unknown, and faith in God, because our Heavenly Father and Creator was our total and only source of strength, our constant Sustainer and Life-Giver. Our story was not normal. It was not predictable. It surely was not planned. But it was life. It is life. Beautiful and broken. Fragile and sacred. Messy and continually molded by the Creator.”
The concert is free, though there will be an opportunity to give a love offering.
Caitlin Jane will also be performing at the Maryland March for Life Youth Rally on March 7 at 4:30 pm sponsored by Students for Life America, at St. Mary’s High School, and will participate in the march through Annapolis and the rally at Lawyer’s Mall.
