First Congregational Church Welcomes the ‘Entertainer’s Entertainer’ from Grand Ole Opry

Get ready for a fun evening of pop, gospel and country with award-winning pianist and recording artist Tim Atwood on Thursday, August 8 at 7 p.m.

With over 8,500 Grand Ole Opry performances to his credit, Tim successfully transitioned from the spotlight’s fringe where he played piano for GRAMMY® Award winners and CMA Entertainers of the Year to the center stage where he performs his high energy stage show for eager audiences all over the world.

With recent television appearances on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family Show, Fox News, RFD-TV’s Larry’s Country Diner and television’s Country Family Reunion: Another Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting, new converts to Tim’s music have discovered what long-time fans have known all along: Tim Atwood has a voice! He is a stylist who truly feels every song he sings, and in turn, the audience feels it too.

Perhaps GRAMMY Award winner and Grand Ole Opry matriarch Jeannie Seely summed up it up best when she said, “Tim Atwood will have his audience laughing at one of his many road stories delivering his lines with a quick wit and country boy charm. Then he’ll fire that audience up like only he can — bopping his head and raking his foot across those keys — the audience clapping their hands and singing along, and just like that, he belts out a poignant ballad that puts a lump in their throats and a tear in their eyes. Tim Atwood is an entertainer!”

Tickets for this performance start at $30. VIP packages are available for just $60, including premium seating, a meet-and-greet with Tim before the show (6:30 p.m.) with a reception of light food and beverages and Tim’s latest CD.

All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit First Congregational Church of Westfield’s programming, ensuring that FCC will continue to enrich the lives of its members and the greater New Jersey community for years to come. 

For tickets, please call the FCC Office at 908-233-2494 or

Death is a part of life. It’s also a part of life that we don’t always know how to talk to our children about. To understand how to explain death to our children, we first need to conceptualize how we ourselves view it.
