Concord Baptist invites the whole community to Heritage Park on Sunday, Sept. 8, for a Back-to-School Picnic. There will be free food, bounce houses, games, prizes, and a free concert of Slugs and Bugs Live! featuring Randall Goodgame. Slugs and Bugs Live! is a joy-filled musical experience featuring animated videos, energetic vocals, and exuberant piano, guitar and mandolin instrumentals. 

The party is from 4-7 p.m., and the concert will start around 5 p.m. in front of the big red barn.

Concord is happy to welcome Randall Goodgame back to Chattanooga. Mr. Goodgame (former “Silly Song” writer for VEGGIETALES) is a former worship pastor and the driving force behind Slugs and Bugs. Randall has brought the Slugs and Bugs Live concert into 30 states and Canada. Slugs and Bugs videos have surpassed 1.13 million views on YouTube, and most importantly, countless families have been encouraged toward a deeper walk with Jesus while having a great time together.

Slugs and Bugs music rollicks from bluegrass to Dixieland to folk-pop to arena rock with songs you’ll be glad you remember long after the concert is over.
