DENISON — The Common Bond Quartet will appear at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Denison at 6:30 p.m. this Sunday.


Common Bond began singing together about 10 years go at Parkside Baptist Church. Don Guy, Johnny Flowers, Johnnie Smith and Delbert Vest were all active in the church’s music ministry. Vest, the church’s Music of Music at that time, put the group together to sing for the local congregation, and they became known first as the Parkside Men’s Quartet.


Since then, the group has had other opportunities to sing Southern gospel music at many events in the North Texas/Southern Oklahoma area, including revival meetings, community services, rest homes and senior adult groups.


The name, Common Bond, is based on their friendship with one another, a common love for Southern gospel music and, most of all, their commitment to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.


The church is located at 1900 Juanita Dr. in Denison.
