Go to our Facebook page for announcements and pictures posted after each event, Hemphill-Community-Center.

We were so glad for the melting of the snow and to be able to enjoy Friday Nite Pickin’ with the Country Troubadours this past Friday evening.


We are hoping for a good number of shape note singers on Sunday. Bring your books and suggest your favorite hymns.

All is well in Hemphill. Come and see us when you can!

Schedule of events

Senior Fellowship Tuesdays at 10 a.m.: Lunch and service provided by seniors for seniors. Hold on to your hat because this is a spunky crew! They don’t need no rocking chair.

Friday Nite Pickin’ on Jan. 20 at 7:30 p.m., Cross Country Bluegrass will be back with country and bluegrass favorites. These pickers are awesome and they play a strong show for dancing or listening. All these guys are such great musicians and vocalists that we look forward to their show every month. Come join us and you will see why we love this band.

Sunday, Jan. 22, from 2 to 5 p.m., the first-ever monthly shape note singing in the do ra mi tradition. This is an ancient art form. It will feed your soul’s need for creative expression. No experience necessary, no talent necessary, no church affiliation necessary! Come out and join us for this community effort to rebuild the singing culture in Hemphill, for which we were once well known. Please bring a snack to share and a dollar or two for a love offering for the facility. Coffee and water will be provided. All are welcome!
