Special Concert at First Baptist Church
As of our continuing effort to reach out to our community, we are presenting a concert of gospel and country music on Friday, April 5 at 7 pm. This is a free will offering concert and no tickets are required. Light refreshments to follow.
Our featured performer is Naomi Bristow. Naomi is a young cowgirl with a great love and talent for singing. She lives on a small horse farm in Beeton, Ontario with her mom, Lynda and her dad Eugene. Naomi's strong faith has guided her to gospel music and she loves to sing with her church band. She also has a great appreciation for western cowboy music, enjoying its storytelling and simplicity.
She has opened for Gene Watson, Marty Stuart, Charley Daniels, Rhonda Vincent, David Frizzell, Johnny Burke, Stonewall Jackson, The Good Brothers, Larry Mercey, Gordie Tapp, Bobby Bare, Moe Bandy and many other established country artists.
Naomi has sung duets with Jim Ed Brown, Grand Ole Opry star. In spring of 2011, Naomi released her fifth album titled Lovin' the Ride featuring Jim Ed Brown and also Richard Sterban from the Oak Ridge Boys. In 2012, Naomi recorded her most memorable CD titled Blessed Trails, a selection of gospel songs featuring country superstar Vince Gill.
Naomi's love for old-time traditional country music led her to self-taught yodeling, which she incorporates into her performances for an overwhelming response. Naomi was featured in the top 200 for the Canada's Got Talent 2012 season. Among the many accolades received the past years, Naomi cherishes the Havelock Fans Choice Award, the BC Cowboy Heritage Rising Star and The Western Music Association, two-time Youth Yodeler of the Year. Naomi has received awards from Municipal, Provincial, and Federal Governments for her outstanding achievements in music.
Many of Naomi's performances have been with the CKNX Barn Dance where Naomi is now included in their museum in Wingham, Ontario. Naomi has performed on Breakfast Television and YTV. She has been showcased on the RFD TV for the third season of Shotgun Red which was recorded live on the General Jackson Showboat Nashville, TN. Naomi has also had several appearances on Midwest Country with RFD TV. Naomi was selected as a finalist for the Western Music Association Crescendo Award for the second year in a row.
First Baptist Church: where you're a stranger only once.
The family at First Baptist Church in Collingwood extends a warm welcome to everyone to join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 at 160 Pine Street. Pastor Paul Wilkes is our spiritual leader and has brought a renewed spirit of peace, joy and love to us and is leading us to focus our energies on increasing our outreach into our community.
In past months, First Baptist has provided both financial and spiritual support to a variety of groups and organizations as part of our mission, and in the months ahead, we will be presenting more musical concerts and special events.
We are also proud to have celebrated our 145th Anniversary last September 23 as we looked back to the founding members of First Baptist who held their first organizational meeting in a stable.
Each week, Pastor Paul brings us messages filled with Bible teachings, wisdom and practical life skills, and we are blessed as from time to time, he shows us his musical skills at the piano, the organ and his trusty accordion.
