Brainerd Presbyterian Hosts Matthew Smith And Indelible Grace Concert

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Brainerd Presbyterian Church is hosting Matthew Smith and Indelible Grace Sunday, August 24 at 6:30 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) in the church sanctuary at 1624 Jenkins Rd (off East Brainerd Rd. past Heritage Park).

Matthew Smith is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter who writes brand new music to centuries-old hymn texts. He is a founding member of the Indelible Grace community, whose work has drawn acclaim across denominational lines and is used in churches around the world.
Born out of a college ministry, the reimagined hymns have found wide acceptance both among college students and the church at large, joining people who desire to honor tradition with those who want a modern musical approach. His latest album is "Hiding Place."

Indelible Grace Music grew out of ministering to college students, primarily through Reformed University Fellowship (RUF). As these students began to taste more of the depth of the gospel and the richness of the hymn tradition, many began to join the music of their culture with the words of our forefathers (and mothers!), and a movement was born.

Advance General Admission tickets are $8 through the church office by calling 899-2424. Tickets are $10 day of concert at the door.
