The Marvin Concert Series seeks to present captivating music in a beautiful historic space to the people of East Texas. It is our goal to provide a vital community outreach that enriches the lives of all ages spiritually, culturally and educationally through music. As we reflect on God’s grace and love toward humanity through musical creativity, we can tangibly witness Him “making all things new.”
Marvin's sanctuary was designed not only as a house for worship, but also as a venue for great music to glorify God. We cherish musicians and their stylistic diversity that is reflected in classical, choral, jazz and modern music.
Events are free unless otherwise noted, but to maintain proper distancing, reservations are required. Please call the Welcome Center to reserve your seat (903.592.7396).
