weekend report

I knew this weekend was going to be something special and I was right!

We hosted guest speaker, A. J. Sherrill from the Mars Hill church this weekend.
A. J. Sherrill
He shared a great challenge encouraging our congregation to be involved in community!   We launched our Fall Community sign-ups and have so many groups and classes to offer!  It will be a very strong Fall! Thank you Doug Taylor!

We had the privilege to shoot a music video at our new downtown City Center with the Young Adult worship team and used that under the first song of worship.  This is not the mixed audio version - just a live chunk during rehearsal.

It gave us both the opportunity to show our congregation an update on the City Center progress as well as feature our Young Adult group as they launched their fall program last night.  They had nearly 60 in attendance and had a great time of worship, teaching and fellowship!  This area of our ministry is SO vital to our continued maturity and the invitation into ministry to our younger adults!  And to provide the connection so vitally needed in a large ministry!  Our 18-35 year olds meet once each month for a service and also have small groups that meet each month.  We are so blessed by them!

From the minute the first music video/song began in worship - I don't know when I've heard louder singing from our congregation - I closed my eyes and just imagined for a moment being surrounded by brothers and sisters for all of eternity worshipping our Lord!

Darin is such a faithful - excellent drummer!

Jocelyn lead us to the thrown!

Tammy serves so faithfully on the team!

Our 4th weekend team prepared well and lead us strongly!
When we see the Lord someday we will not be able to resist falling to our knees in worship and praising Him!

It was SO strong!  A huge thank you for everyone's hard work on stage and behind the scenes our tech team was amazing too working to make the weekend so great!
