Rock Spring Presbyterian church on Piedmont Rd Atlanta looks like something out of an English countryside what with its grey stone and beamed architecture. But on Sunday October 9th there won't be any angelic voices of Anglican choir boys, instead there will be the twang of bango, mandoline, guitars and upright bass. Hicks with Picks Bluegrass Gospel band will bring the music Sunday October 9th at 11am in the main sanctuary with many favorite Bluegrass tunes and some new ones as well. Each band member has picked out a special song to not only play but also to comment and reflect upon. So instead of a regular sermon, there will be a sermon of songs. There will lots of toe tapping, hand clapping, sing-a-longing, "ol'time religion". Come as you are, whatever that means to you.
Hicks with Picks and Rock Spring hold a weekly Bluegrass service at 9am in the Loudermilk building behind the main church building. About once a quarter the band invade the 11am service as well,
Everyone is welcome to our services. Come explore what faith can mean.
