First Baptist Church, Montevallo, in Shelby Baptist Association honored Denise George for 30 years as church pianist by holding Denise George Day on March 22. The day included a concert of praise by George following morning worship and a special luncheon.
“She does more than play notes on the page. She makes the piece her own and changes the character. She has the ability to make things sound new and fresh,” said Terry Davis, minister of music at First, Montevallo, according to an article in the Shelby County Reporter. “We want to give honor and glory to God for the talent He has given her.”
George and her husband, Roddy, moved to Montevallo and became members of the church in 1978, and she became the church’s pianist the following year.
“Music is a powerful tool that penetrates human hearts, and it has been a blessing to be used by God to help people worship, celebrate their happiest moments and persevere or be encouraged and comforted by great songs of our faith,” George said, according to the Reporter.
First, Montevallo, is led by Pastor Terry Sutton.
