Rasely is a fingerstyle guitarist and composer. According to his Web site, he began playing in 1964, received his bachelor of music education degree from Suny Fredonia, gives lessons and has recorded several CDs. He has toured in a number of states and has even performed twice at the White House.

The church youth group is working with TEAMeffort, an organization that arranges mission trips, and plans to travel to Topsail Beach, North Carolina.
