Glenn’s Spirit on the River is returning to the Friday After 5 festivities tonight with the freshly coined Hallelujah Fridays. The all-gospel music event will run from 6-8 p.m. at First Baptist Church on J.R. Miller Boulevard.
Glenn Family Services is partnering with First Baptist Church to provide an air-conditioned venue with excellent acoustics. FA5 Executive Director Fran Marseille said they are blessed with some quality local and regional talent for the event.
“We are thrilled with our new space at First Baptist,” Marseille said. “The music and venue are inspirational and offer a great place to cool down. It offers a fresh appeal and is just down the road. The sound is exceptional.”
This Friday showcases a local favorite in Steve Bridgemon and Friends along with The Foresters Gospel Celebration.
The subsequent gospel events are slated for July 22 and Aug. 19. The Childress Family Gospel Celebration and Friends will perform on the July 22, while Aug. 19 is reserved for local congregations.
“Come check out some of the great local names,” Marseille said. “The seats are incredibly comfortable, and there isn’t a bad one in the house. It’s truly a beautiful location.”
