The Easter service was really well done. Our praise team sang some well-known songs about the way our world lives life... and then blended that story into a telling of the Easter story using video and song. This was the last song they sang before Pastor came to speak... (its a tear-jerker)
Of course, Pastor gave an invitation - in the service we attended, he said 30+ people gave their lives to Jesus. After his talk, we sang some praise songs to celebrate the Victory we have in Jesus. It was really a wonderful celebration!
This morning, the boys and I went back to church while Brad went to work. I got to volunteer with the 3-year-olds for the first service and then was a greeter for the second service. There were a lot of 'first-timers' and quite a few, 'we haven't been here in awhile' folks. I hope each person that attended the services received a special blessing.
