Talented musicians of Faith Open Bible Church
September 24, 2012 - Mike Donahey
Rev. Terry Fristoe of Marshalltown's Faith Open Bible Church was a busy man on the Courthouse Square Saturday afternoon.
He was jack-of-all trades. The pastor helped church-affiliated band Disorganized Religion remove equipment from the stage following their gig and was busy setting-up equipment for his own performance as a member of group Bree and Friends. The guitar-playing, singing minister kept busy during the set with daughter Bree Miller. Joining the duet on several songs was talented Melissa Hall also of the church.
Despite a small, crowd, Fristoe, Miller and Hall played like the square was packed. And they did not limit their performance to strictly religious titles. The group ably covered the Eagles’ “Desperado,” Roger Miller’s “King of the Road," Hank Williams’ “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and Sarah McLachlin’s “Angel” among others. Their rendition of “Hallelujah” was inspirational.
There’s more. Go the church’s website, faithobc.org There is music by Fristoe, Hall, Natalie Boles of Disorganized Religion and others. “We hope that what we did today touched folks’ hearts and opened their minds to accept Jesus as their savior,” said Boles after Saturday’s performance. From a handful to a crowd, Disorganized Religion or Bree and Friends are ready to spread the word.
