Please note that most mobile phones will only check for new events and updates periodically.  It may take a few hours for your phone to update.

This will add all “events” to the calendar.  This calendar does not include the regularly scheduled services (such as Sunday Worship, Sunday School, etc).  We separate these out because most people know the regular schedule and don’t want so many events to clutter their calendar.


Tentative & Private Events
These events are either: 1) scheduled but not yet confirmed – so they haven’t been made available to the public,  2) not applicable to the public (i.e. setup for an event) or 3) private events that aren’t published as a church function (i.e. a wedding).  You should be able to tell the difference by looking at the event details or considering the context of the event (i.e. “setup for the Jones wedding”).


This is the link that will add all events, regularly scheduled services and tentative (or private) events.

Hymn Sing 2020 Ticket Sale

Gerald Wolf’s Gospel Music Hymn Sing

with Greater Vision, The Whisnants, Mark Trammell Quartet, Jim & Melissa Brady, and The Hymn Sing Band

Mon, Jan 13, 2020 at 7:00 pm
The Sanctuary, Evans, GA

The hymns of the church have been preserved down through the centuries by faithful Christians who have experienced the life-changing power of their message. With changing times, cultures, and styles, the next generation isn’t exposed to these great lyrics and melodies in most Churches on a weekly basis anymore, and those who know and love them don’t often have the opportunity to sing them in a congregational setting. What began as a simple “sing-along,” during a Gospel Concert in a small theater in Shipshewana, Indiana, eventually led to the first video recording of a “Gospel Music Hymn Sing,” in the Summer of 2014. Two local Church Choirs, along with 50 well-known Gospel Music Artists came together for the event at the First Baptist Church of Morristown, Tennessee, and a capacity crowd, with attendees from as far as 2000 miles away, filled the auditorium…for the Monday evening event. It was obvious to everyone in attendance that this was something really special, and there was obviously a real desire, a real hunger, for a revival of congregational Hymn singing. Shortly after the release of the first “Gospel Music Hymn Sing” DVD, the Gospel Music Hymn Sing Foundation was formed by four well-known Gospel Music Artists… Jim Brady, Rodney Griffin, Mark Trammell, and Gerald Wolfe.
