I wish I could have hobbled closer to the choir for this picture, but my cast kept me at this distance. The picture is of 80-year-old Mama Barnes leading the Faith Home choir today at North Side. Before the service, she told me she didn’t want to lead the choir because she didn’t want to be a distraction.
I said, “Mama Barnes, the choir sounds great, but your dancing is amazing. Get up there.”
And boy, did she ever! Her energy and the choir’s passion in worship changed the room for sure! I can’t even begin to tell you how loud, not the band, but the congregation was this morning worshiping!
We were so honored to have our partner in ministry join us for this special day. The Faith Home, 4 decades into ministry, has cared for over 20,000 men and women in the area of Christian recovery for alcoholics and addicts. When they sang, “If he can make a change in me, he can make a change in you,” such hope and passion came out of their mouths and their souls. Amazing!
Today, we worshiped to:
- Never Seen the Righteous Forsaken – North Side Worship
- Worship You – North Side Worship
- He Made a Change – Faith Home Choir
- Amazing Grace – North Side Worship version
- Victory in Jesus – Travis Cottrell
- I Saw the Light – David Crowder Band
Music team, tech team, and host team, you guys blow me away week after week! Your enthusiasm sets the pace, and I am so thankful for your service!
If you didn’t get to hear the message, you can get it here. This message, was so deep and practical. Jeff just brought it as he spoke of how we are to live as children of the light!
Walking in the Light (Eph. 5:1-21) – We must be careful as believers never to drift back towards the darkness. We are called to walk in the light of Christ. By walking wisely in the light, we represent Jesus well to a world in the dark.
If you missed the service, I can’t really describe what took place. The best way I can try: people who have been saved from a lot, worship a lot.
See you next week as we being our final month through Ephesians!
