On Saturday, December 6, we will travel to Evansville, Indiana for a Christmas concert at the Howell General Baptist Church. This will be a special evening as they are raising funds for a very worthwhile cause. They help so many needy children in their area through this event. There will be a dinner, a silent auction and we will present a concert. The dinner will start at 5:00 pm (CT) with the concert to follow. This is a ticketed event. For tickets, you can call the church at 812-425-6492. The church is located at 1520 Delmar Avenue.
On Sunday, December 7, we will be down the road from home at the Concord General Baptist Church in Maniou, Kentucky for a Christmas concert at 6:00 pm (CT). We were there last year and some of the other churches in the community joined us for the evening. It was a great night and we are expecting a great time once again. Concord is located just a few miles from Madisonville. From the Pennyrile Parkway Exit #44, you will go towards Providence onto Nebo Road or 41-A for several miles until you come to the little community of Manitou. You will turn right onto Highway 630 (Manitou Road-see the church sign) and travel a few miles down the road until you come to the church on the left side of the road.
On Saturday evening, December 13 and Sunday morning, December 14, we will be joining the worship choir at our home church, Grapevine Baptist Church, for a Christmas concert. We will sing songs, the choir will sing songs and we will join together on several songs-both traditional and new favorites. The Saturday concert will begin at 6:00 pm (CT) and the Sunday morning will begin at 10:45 am. The church is located at 85 Sandcut Road. This is always a great concert. We have only done one performance in the past, but this year we have added one for Saturday night for those who attend other churches but have expressed their desire to be able to come. Well, now is your chance. We hope to see you there. This will be our last Chrismtas concert for this year. Merry Christmas!
On New Year's Eve, we want you to make plans to join us for a concert at Grapevine Baptist Church, 85 Sandcut Road in Madisonville, Kentucky when we will be joined by The Conquerors Quartet for a great evening of gospel music from 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm CT (it's midnight somewhere). We will be debuting songs from our newest CD that evening. An offering will be received.
