Our Christmas Program/ "Reaching"
Our Christmas Program was this past weekend. It is more of a blessing than I can adequately put into words to be just a tiny part of it. We received an email from our Music Minister today -
"We had over 14,000 attend 4 services and more than 40 folks that we counseled that received Christ as their Lord and Savior. I have never been so thrilled with the responses from the congregation and many visitors that attended for the very first time. God is so good."

His prayer, and ours, leading up to this weekend has been that Jesus would be seen and glorified. Presenting the most professional program in the world would have been worth nothing if Jesus had not been the center of it all. We are far from the most professional group in the world, but there is a longing in each heart to lift the name of Jesus. What a joy to know that He was there and drawing people to Himself through the singing, playing, dancing and preaching of the word.
Thank You Jesus.



These are just a couple of candid shots before the program began. I wish I could have been in two places at once, so that you could get a better idea of what it all looked like. This was really all I could manage.
The choir loft beginning to fill up. That's my husband sitting in the middle of the last row ( and no, the baby didn't get to sing with us).

A view from the sanctuary of the children practicing. They were so sweet. I told my husband that I wish I could be a little girl again just so I could dance in church. It simply wasn't done when I was a little girl. I am just captivated by them.



Here is another song from that Christmas CD I love so much - "Still the Greatest Story Ever Told" by the Gaither Vocal Band.

Blessings,

I love the Gaithers. Your Christmas program sounds wonderful. For some reason we didn't have one this year. I miss the days when my kids were in programs. It is zero here today. Bet it is warmer there. Come over and see my New York pictures from my vacation (o:

I love singing in choir, as you know. But we only do it once, and it's a small crowd. But it's such a blessing. I have pix from the kids' musical last night on today's post. It was wonderful!

I haven't heard of that song, that I know of. My new favorite Christmas song is A Baby Changes Everything on Faith Hill's new CD. It is wonderful.

Thanks for the pics and the praise report. Was the concert recorded?

Sounds like the perfect Christmas celebration. I love to dance in church. We have one elderly woman who dances ever Sunday, just for the Lord in her little spot in the pew. It's precious! Hugs!
