Matthew Smith, Indelible Grace sing new sound

A new sound with a timeless message is coming to our area Saturday. Matthew Smith and the Indelible Grace Band will be in concert at Berachah Bible Church at 7 p.m.

Smith is an East Nashville singer-songwriter who writes updated melodies for centuries-old hymn texts, thus bridging the gaps that often occur in churches over music. He is founding member of the Indelible Grace Band, 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 among college students and the church at large, joining people who desire to honor tradition with those who want a modern musical approach.

“Our hope is to help the church recover the tradition of putting old hymns to new music for each generation,” Smith explains on the website,

“We want to be a voice calling our generation back to something rich and solid and beyond the fluff and the trendy.”

There is no admission or ticket fee for the event, though a love offering will be taken during the concert to support their ministry. The doors will open at 6:30 and seating is first come, first serve.

Berechah Bible Church is located at 310 Corinth Road, Jonesboro. For more information about the concert, call 770.461.2466 or visit
