Come join us to see Forgiven in concert on June 29, 2017 at 6:30 pm.

Sponsored by the Comanche Cotton Baptist Association, this concert is open to all ages. No tickets required. A love offering will take place for Forgiven during the concert. 

Joining in the concert will be Sam Chestnut from Oklahoma City, a retired SWAT Team Member from the OKC Police Department and a first responder to the Murrah Federal Building bombing in OKC in 1995.  Over the years, Mr. Chestnut has contributed enormously to the OKC community and is highly regarded for his service.  In addition, he is a devout and solid Christian who has sung (baritone) for years both in his church and elsewhere, but not "professionally." One of Sam's greatest desires was to sing gospel music with a "professional group" one day, but life, career and now illness due to terminal cancer more-or-less took priority.
 
In addition to Sam Chestnut, Bernie Parquette will be there to sing as well. Bernie is well-known in gospel music circles in Branson and actually works as a "singing" waitress at The Hard Luck Diner at The Grand Shoppes in Branson.  She was voted Female Vocalist of the Year by the Branson Gospel Music Association for 2000 and 2001.

Daywind Producer and nationally-known song writer, Marty Funderburk from Nashville, TN says, "I have had the privilege of spending many days in the studio producing nine of Forgiven Quartet’s recordings. I’m very impressed with their vocal capabilities and their incredible blend. Even more impressive than this however, is their commitment to ministry and to preserving the rich heritage of southern gospel music. These are Christian gentlemen of the highest order, obviously committed to spiritual and musical excellence. You can see it in their live performances and you can hear it in their recordings. Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present to you, Forgiven Quartet.....Southern Gospel Music at its finest."
