Abby was able to sing in the children's choir and not only did they get to sing but they were able to sing with our guest worship leader - Stephan Curtis Chapman. They sang one of his songs Children of God. It was a once in a lifetime type of experience for Abby (even though she has no clue!)
We were there Saturday evening for rehearsal. It's hard to see but Abby is on the front row in a yellow shirt.
Here's a view from above taken by my friend Wendy. The kids are all on the back risers and you can see all the spotlights on Stephan Curtis Chapman (and him up on the screen on the side)
So we watched the remainder of the service from the cry room. (aka the suite boxes) Well tried to watch anyway - because we were there early and service was long with extra worship time to allow everyone time to get in and seated. The kids were very antsy by hour 3 of sitting. We made it through to the end and the moment they were waiting for - the glow sticks.
Each glow stick represents a resolve from our Church members to strengthen our families and the families in our neighborhood around us. “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
And one more from our Church facebook page.
This fall our Church is committed to strengthening our families and those around us. If you are in the San Antonio area - you can see the schedule of sermons here and find a campus near you if you'd like to join us in this awesome series.
