Today was the next to last Sunday of “Knowing Jesus” series, and it was one of my favorite Sundays ever. We concluded our “Ni Zan Je” testimonies from this summer in a pretty special way. As we took up the offering, we watched an International Mission Board video talking about the connection between financial support and our foreign missionaries. And who was feature in the video? Our very own partner, Greg, in West Africa!
Kara gave her testimony after that. It was powerful to hear all that she learned and all that she did over the summer. When she concluded, another one of our missionaries, Heather led worship with the choir to the song “He’s Always Been Faithful.” As they sang, we played a video of our mission teams in West Africa. There could not be a more appropriate song! It honestly was one of the most powerful moments for me as a worship leader as I stood in the back of the auditorium worshiping along.
Today, we worshiped to:
- Victory in Jesus/Power in the Blood – North Side Worship
- Friend of Sinners – North Side Worship
- He’s Always Been Faithful – Sara Groves
Loved hearing the singing out, and loved some new people joining up our lineup today! Jeff’s message was great. What a way to look at it – all of us are either coming closer to Jesus or moving away. It was a powerful day!
