WE ARE CONTINUING OUR GROWN FOLKS MUSIC MESSAGE SERIES
Grown Folks Music. What is it? It’s music that has substance. It’s music that stands the test of time. Whether it’s the pain or the possibility, the weakness or the wonder, grown folks' music is an authentic soundtrack for life. The songs of scripture span the gamut of human experience. These songs teach, touch, and transform us. Grown Folks Music is not just for Grown Folks: everybody can benefit. Join us this summer as our Senior Pastor, Dr. Lance Watson DJ’s a few of the timeless classics in scripture that could be accurately described as “Grown Folks Music.”
