WM church hosts music
The Weaver Believer Survival Revival will be featured in the 11 a.m. worship service Sunday at Woodland Mills First Baptist Church.
Paul and Chris Weaver, who make their home in the northeast Georgia mountains, have been married for 23 years and are blessed with eight children — all of whom play some type of musical instrument as they sing in harmony.
The Weavers instilled the love of music in their children at a young age. From the time they were little, they were taken around to sing for shut-ins, at nursing homes and to small groups — and it grew from there.
When Paul taught them to play instruments, it only added to the music and resulted in the birth of the Weaver Believer Survival Revival.
Since the children are homeschooled, it allows them the time and freedom to travel.
They sing in tight family harmony and play guitars, banjos, mandolin, fiddle, acoustic bass and stand-up bass, joyfully using their God-given talents to bring honor and glory to the Lord, according to their website,
The Rev. Rick Burton is pastor of the Woodland Mills church.
