December Tide, a local Christian band, is launching its first full-length album at 7 p.m. Friday at First Baptist Church Nacogdoches.
This launch party will be a concert by December Tide and featuring Zach Maberry. Cost will be $1 at the door or the donation of your choice. All funds raised on Friday night will go to Go Now Missions, a Texas-based group that sends missionaries and aid where they are needed across the globe.
Formed out of the desire to spread the message of Christ, drummer Parker Lattimer said being part of December Tide is more than just being in a band.
“We all met right here at SFA, and when we realized the impact we could have, it was one of those things we couldn’t pass up,” Lattimer said.
Some of the students met through the Baptist Student Ministry, and others joined after learning they shared a common interest. December Tide has been helping lead student ministry through 24/7, a youth group that meets on Thursday nights to worship.
“24/7 was birthed by pastors that were tired of being separated by their organizations and wanted the Christian body on campus to be united,” Lattimer said.
“Got has called us to worship with all people of all generations for the sole purpose of spreading the love of Christ,” Brendyn Todd, guitarist and band manager, said about the band. “Our desire is to build relationships, not only through music, but genuine fellowship. Our only goal is to spread the love of Christ through our musicial worship.”
