SHAWNEE—The final performance of the Singing Churchmen of Oklahoma’s 2021-22 season will be in Raley Chapel on Thursday, April 7 at 7 p.m.
The Singing Churchmen (SCM) have been celebrating the group’s 60th year with stops at Tulsa, First; Oklahoma City, Southern Hills; Tulsa, South Tulsa; and Ponca City, First.
More of SCM has been told in a book written by Dana Williamson and designed by Rick Boyd. The book is titled This Is Their Story! This Is Their Song! and shares the history of the group from the past 60 years.
“From a small group called spontaneously to sing together at a regional music conference at Tulsa, Immanuel, those musicians have grown to a renowned male chorus of up to 300 singers,” Williamson wrote in a Messenger article about the book and about SCM.
With visits over the years to Russia, Latvia, Estonia, China, Australia, Armenia and Israel, SCM has advanced the Gospel throughout the world, and the group faithfully performs on a yearly basis, featuring new members as well as longtime veterans.
“As Oklahoma Baptists celebrate 60 seasons of ministry of The Singing Churchmen, we are aware of the joy and ministry that comes from worship and music,” said Randy Lind, Oklahoma Baptists worship-music ministry partner. “As we come to the final concert for this historic season, we are grateful for the opportunities that Oklahoma Baptists have given the SCM to sing in hundreds of churches in Oklahoma, across the United States, and throughout the world. The Singing Churchmen will continue to sing the Gospel into the hearts of the people for years to come!”
