weekend report - hands

We had another awesome weekend at Crossroads-  both locations Mansfield and Galion Ohio!

As I walked around I noticed how in every area of our ministry it was the hands that caught my attention.

There were hands of every age.

Hands reaching out to welcome those who entered our doors were the first hands I saw.

In the auditorium I saw volunteers worshiping even while they were working, this tells me that it is so much more than just doing a job! Inspiring...

I then looked across the auditorium to see one of the most elderly of our attendees raising her hand in the worship of her Savior.  She never heard anyone say that only the 'young' like contemporary Christian music.  She can worship to any kind of music because she is there to truly worship - slow - fast - or somewhere in between.  I could see even from far away that her hand had crooked aged fingers and still they reached toward heaven.  Inspiring...  I love her hands. 
Aged hands worshiping still!
The navy is going to get one of our favorites

In our youth rooms I saw several hands pointing at the young man whose face was on the screen.  A face that is soon leaving our ministry for the navy. 

Then I stopped at the young children's room and
was blown away as I watched some of them lead worship with beautiful, young, innocent hands raised hi to the Savior!   Inspiring...
