Covid Connections is a collaborative goodwill effort to enhance support and enjoyment for older adults during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. This effort is made possible by businesses, performers, providers and others -- who also serve older adults -- and wish to "give back" during this crisis by sharing virtual contributions.

"Here On Earth Worship" Band, Exeter, NH
Contemporary Worship Music
"Here On Earth Worship" is a popular contemporary Catholic worship band, founded by young NH Seacoast musicians -- Samantha Moore (lead vocals), T.J. Johnson (guitar), Spencer Gregory (keys/vocals), Nick Liguori (drums) and Justin Williams (bass.) Their mission is to help others (especially young people) build a closer relationship with God through music.
The group was formed in 2015 and originally known as the HOPE band (an acronym for "He Opens People's Eyes.) As their popularity increased, they changed the band's name to "Here on Earth Worship", hoping to invoke greater clarity about their ministry. They also started collaborating to create their own original music.
In 2019, they cut their first single, "Jesus I Trust in You" (listen below.) The lyrics and melody were written by Samantha during a time of personal challenge.
The "Here On Earth Worship" band is now very much in demand as they continue to inspire audiences of all ages at masses, retreats, workshops, conferences and festivals. They were also recently featured as the cover story for "Parable" magazine (May/June, 2020).
"Jesus I trust In You"
Lyrics - "Jesus I trust In You"
No matter the place or time
No matter what I feel like
I know, God, you're in control
Even when I feel alone
Even when I don't know where I am,
God you're in control.
Lord, you carry me, You bled and died for me,
Oh God I know You're in control.
Jesus I trust in You.
Help me to trust in You.
Jesus I trust,
Oh God I trust in you.
God give me grace now
I don't know where this storm is headed
You have given me everything
So why do I turn my back?
How can I forget Your Love God?
Your love is greater than all my fears.
