MARIOTT-SLATERVILLE — First United Methodist Church will host Liberty, a traditional Southern Gospel quartet, at 7 p.m. Sept. 7.

The church is at 1339 W. 400 North (Interstate 15 Exit 346) in Marriott-Slaterville.

Liberty is a full-time concert ministry based in Boise, Idaho.

Liberty members are Royce Mitchell, bass; Jordan Cragun, baritone; Philip Batton, tenor; and Doug Wiley, lead.

They average 50,000 to 70,000 miles on the road each year, ministering in about 200 performances for churches, nursing homes, prisons and other ministries.

This well-known quartetalso sings at large conventions, including the Great Western Southern Gospel Fan Festival, the Pacific Gospel Music Association and the Gospel Music Fan Festival in Canada.

The group, which averages two recording projects each year, cherishes the opportunity to connect with people and make new friends wherever they go, according to a news release from the church.

They have had the opportunity to share the platform with groups such as Legacy Five, Greater Vision, Gaither Vocal Band, the Booth Brothers, Poet Voices, the Isaacs, Crossway and many others.

First United Methodist says that even those who are not fans of Southern Gospel music will enjoy the enthusiasm the men exhibit while singing to the Lord.

The concert is free to the public; however, a love offering will be taken in support of the ministry.
