I am not only blessed with a wonderful wife and three great kids but I am also blessed to be part of a wonderful small church in Waxhaw NC, truly part of God’s Kingdom. This past week we had the opportunity to be part of three great events with Grace Community Church, http://www.gracecarolina.org/
First our regular Wednesday night middle school youth group. We played some games with the kids, some time for fellowship and a study on prayer, why we should pray, how often and how we pray. We also spent some time singing worship songs.. wow.. More on one of the songs later.
Second we had a wonderful leadership meeting in our sun room with the deacons and elders.. what a group of God fearing men. We discussed a book, Radical by David Platt, http://www.radicalthebook.com/home.html . We also had some good prayer time, ate some wonderful Billy Bob Beamer’s BBQ and sang some worship songs, a little News Boys, Chris Tomlin and David Crowder. This event was Friday night and we got back together again Saturday morning..
Third was Sunday service at Grace, http://www.gracecarolina.org/ at 10 am. What a wonderful crowd, lots of regulars and new visitors. The sermon was from Mark 6: 30-44 we discussed rest in Jesus and compassion an action not a feeling. The sermon is on the Grace website if you would like to listen. Worship was so passionate and strong. The entire church was so in to it, digging the songs and singing out loud.
All three events we sang one song that I think you will enjoy.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FxaUYjRtkc as sung by the David Crowder band who I saw in concert a couple of months ago.. have a listen. This is a love song to God.
Thanks for allowing me to share this time with you.
