Article Image Alt Text

Rev. Charles Hall and the congregation of Longstreet Baptist Church cordially invite you to join them on Sunday, February 1 as they host a Gospel concert and singing. During the regular 11:00 AM service, “His Grace” will be featured as they share God’s love through their music. A covered dish dinner will follow the performance in the church fellowship hall. Across decades, southern gospel music has been an inspiration to many devoted listeners. Whether this lively and heart-stirring music is performed by soloists, duets, trios, or quartets, people are encouraged by its joyous message of a risen Savior who freely gives grace that is sufficient for their every need. It is this message of hope that "His Grace", a male quartet from West-Central Louisiana, brings to every performance.
