Park's Pickers are our very own, home-grown gospel bluegrass band, first formed by the Reverend Sam Lamback and features members of our congregation as musicians and vocalists.

God has worked a delightful ministry at Park Memorial in gathering members of the church community who share a love of playing instruments and singing. In 2004, folks with guitars, mandolins, a banjo, stand up bass, an autoharp, a dobro guitar, harmonicas, as well as vocal gifts, discovered our common interest and formed the Park's Pickers.

Each member contributes their gifts literally in harmony to enhance our worship and reach out to churches, homes for the elderly, community events and, frankly, any occasion where somebody is willing to hear us. Our music is country, gospel, bluegrass, popular, whatever inspires us. You'll find us picking in Sunday morning worship, on the church lawn Sundays at 5:00pm (weather permitting), at our annual picnic, homecomings, festivals, and around the area when invited.

If you would like more information on how you, too, can join in this wonderful music -based program, or would like more information on booking Park's Pickers for an event, drop Sam an email listed below the sound clips... They'd be glad to hear from you!!
