Spring Branch Baptist Church sponsored an all day Gospel Music Festival in October 2008 to celebrate the dedication of their new building on Highway 281. They had a packed house in October 2009 with Debbie Daniels and the Grand Ole Gospel Sing which featured many artists, including the Steel Magnolias, nominated for a grammy in country and gospel music.
In 2010, SBBC plans a monthly sing featuring a special group each month. In February, award winning duo Gene & LaVada Triesch of Blanco will take the stage on Saturday the 20th. March features humorous and talented blind musician Walter Plant from the Rio Valley on Sunday night the 28th. On April 10, the Seale Sisters, four siblings with amazing tight harmonies and a wonderful sound will grace the Sing. May features Forever Changed, a men’s trio from Canyon Lake. White Dove, a well loved bluegrass group at the annual Wimberley Music Festival will be coming in June. July will feature a men’s quartet from Texarkana who are known as the Southern Grace Quartet. In August, Debbie Daniels will again bring her popular Grand Ole Gospel Sing.
The church invites the community to come for a sandwich supper at 5:00pm and join in the fun at 6:00pm with some gospel singing before the special artists take the stage from 6:45 to 8:00pm. Door prizes will be given and a love offering will be taken up for the special gospel groups. For questions call 210-887-1009 or visit the church website at http://springbranchbaptist.org/
