Sunday School - 9:15 a.m.

Upcoming Concert Schedule

Veritas - March 4 @ 6 p.m.

March is Musical!  It's going to be an unbelieveable month of music starting with Veritas in concert.  In a powerful crescendo of accomplishment over the past several years, contemporary classical vocal group Veritas found themselves in some tremendous places, from belting out their signature power harmonies on the Carnegie Hall stage to crooning cruisers in the middle of the Caribbean, to joining Sandi Patty on her Forever Grateful tour.  Since coming together in 2012, Veritas has always focused on crafting a dramatic experience to tell the greatest story ever told–the drama of love between the Creator and His Creation. Now, they are doing it in a way that more intentionally seeks to speak to their audience. 

We are so blessed to have these world-class singers sharing with us at First Baptist Church on March 4 @ 6 p.m. 

The Talleys - March 25 @ 6 p.m.

 The Talleys are one of Christian music's most beloved and respected families. Their commitment to excellence and creativity in music have been their trademark since their illustrious career began, and their clear communication of the gospel is a defining characteristic of a Talley concert. The Talleys began in 1984 and enjoyed many years of success, including a Dove Award and numerous Singing News Fan Awards. Following a three-year hiatus, the Talleys began performing together in 1996 with the current lineup of Roger, wife Debra and daughter Lauren, and today the Talleys remain a mainstay of Christian music. The Talleys have enjoyed eleven number one songs, and have received numerous Singing News Fan Awards and Dove Award nominations.  

Gloryland - April 29 @ 6 p.m.

Gloryland Quartet was organized in Paragould, Arkansas in late 2003, by four men who loved Southern Gospel Quartet music.

From the beginning, the group has dedicated itself to the traditional model of male quartets and styled itself after some of the greats such as the Cathedrals and the Kingsmen. Other influences came from groups like the Happy Goodman Family and the Perrys. 

 Gloryland continues to sing as much as possible in the Northeast Arkansas region,
having travelled in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Mississippi and Tennessee. Keeping
Southern Gospel Quartet music alive is a part of our mission.
