The High Lonesome Bluegrass Mass

    We hope you will join us at 5:00 on Sunday, May 1st at First Baptist Church, Athens, for a fun and enriching evening of singing. It will be a unique opportunity to hear a new traditional choral high mass setting that draws upon the rich history of our Southern Appalachian folk heritage. The live bluegrass band and congregational hymn singing will be sure to uplift and inspire you. I am very proud of the hard work our choir members have invested in learning this difficult music. We began working on the choral mass in January and are looking forward to finally being able to combine efforts with Emmanuel College’s Chorale and the choir of First Baptist Church in Athens. So, Come Away to the Skies with us as we trace the roots of our faith through the ages of the past and into the present. We have enjoyed sharing several specials from the program with you these past few weeks and you can be on the lookout for more songs to come.

    As we look ahead into our summer music programming, please let me know if you would like to be involved in the summer praise teams and band. We will begin forming groups in May to transition into services by June.

He is deserving of all praise!
