Finding Favour hopes to make music that inspires the contemporary Christian band's listeners.
"Let us take the good and the bad and remember that God has a purpose and a plan," the band's lead singer, Blake Neesmith, says on www.klove.com, a listener-supported contemporary Christian music website. "In the fire, in the storms, or even in the calm, we can stand and say, ĎAmen!' "
Finding Favour will appear at 6 p.m. Sunday at First Union Congregational Church, 105 N. 12th. Admission is free, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
The concert is sponsored by First Union in conjunction with Quincy radio station WGCA-FM.
"Finding Favour is one of the hottest young groups out there right now," WGCA Executive Director Bruce Rice said.
In addition to Neesmith, the group includes Dustin Daniels (bass/guitar/vocals), Josh Duckworth (drums) and Allen Dukes (guitar/vocals).
The group, based in Georgia, played at numerous youth camps across the country before signing a record deal. The group's debut single, "Slip on By," was an immediate hit and paved the way for the band's self-titled debut album in May 2013.
"This is where God's been leading us for years, and now we know we're home," Neesmith says in the band's bio. "We pray that our hearts and songs will shine bright into the darkness, and together make an extraordinary difference."
Finding Favour was part of a recent tour with fellow contemporary Christian artists Audio Adrenaline and Kutless.
