The Browns are coming to Tabernacle Baptist Church in George. Here’s what they had to say:

“It’s truly a family affair when The Browns hit the stage with their gospel music. The musical stylings of Shelly, Michaela, Adam and Andrew exude excitement on the stage and offer a life-changing experience to all who hear them. The Browns deliver the powerful message of the gospel through word and song that engage audiences of all ages.

The Browns have been touring across the United States since the group began its full-time ministry nineteen years ago. The heralded group began on the local and state level and has expanded and grown into a national touring group.

You’re invited to hear their concert at Tabernacle Baptist Church, 206 E. Indiana Ave., George on Sunday evening, May 5 beginning at 6:30 PM. You will not be disappointed. There will be a free-will offering taken with coffee & soft serve ice cream served after the concert.”
