Plans are already underway for the Brewton Community Choir to have its annual Thanksgiving concert.

Schwayn Bradley, director of the choir, said the choir gets together every year around Thanksgiving with calls coming for a yearly get together.

“The Brewton Community Choir has been around for about 17 years,” Bradley said. “It evolved first from singers and musicians from the local Promise Keepers band (Brewton Area Fellowship of Christian Men). Then it changed to Brewton Praise Band that held worship services at local churches. It has since become the Brewton Community Choir, which consists of the greater Brewton area worship leaders and choir members. The choir gets together every other year around Thanksgiving. Our purpose consists of a time of fellowship and the giving of thanks from our Brewton Community. There was a demand for this time of worship and fellowship from local Christians.”

Bradley said this year’s them will be similar to fellowships in the past.

“We will be featuring singing from the Brewton Community Choir, testimony, thanksgiving words from Pastor Mike Williams, and of course, food and fellowship,” Bradley said. “The location of the actual fellowship will be at Christ Kingdom Ministry Center located at 1602 Douglas Avenue in Brewton. Food and fellowship will begin at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3. Everyone is invited to sing and participate with the choir and musicians.”

Rehearsals are being held at Christ Kingdom Ministry Center Sundays from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

“It’s never too late to jump in,” Bradley said.

For more information on participation contact either Todd Ray of First Baptist Church in Brewton at 867-5769 or Melinda McCorvey at 363-0599 or by e-mail at

There will be no charge for those wanting to attend the concert, but organizers are asking everyone to bring a canned food to add to the community food bank.

Those wanting to attend are asked to bring lawn chairs, and blankets in case the weather is a little cool. The events will begin at 5 p.m. with food and fellowship outside. The inside service will begin at 6 p.m.
