What a fantastic day to celebrate as a church! To finish up the 1 Peter series, we read through the entire book as a church and worshiped at every turn.
We did all 13 tracks from the “Stand Firm” album as Jeff read through the passages. We have introduced these songs along the way, but doing it completely through this morning was a special way to conclude this study. It served as a way to refresh and remind these wonderful truths that have been changing us over the last 6 months.
We also brought in some wooden pallets and tea lights to make us feel like we were back at Epworth. Thanks to Jamie and Lacy for the ton of work they put into it!
We did release the CD today as well. If you didn’t get a copy, you can get it on iTunes below or you can get them at the church. We have them for $10 for the first one and $5 for each additional one.
I received so many positive comments today about how this was causing them to keep God’s Word in their ears and in their hearts – that’s the goal! Praise the Lord!
The only negative of the day is that my wife Amanda woke up sick this morning and could not sing. She does such a great job and loves this emphasis so much, it bummed all of us out. But it was also a reminder of how flexible and talented of a team that I had to reassign many parts at 8:30 and everyone jumped in there. What commitment and talent!
Thanks to such a wonderful team that I get to serve with – you guys have incredible hearts and gifts and I am honored to serve alongside you!
