A God of Grace

Powerful day with North Side family as we focused on Isaiah 48!  Even on the dreaded Spring Forward Sunday, the church was getting after it this morning!

We sang everything from Handel to Gaither this morning! If it is biblical theology, it needs to be sung no matter its age!

Four of these songs are from our upcoming Easter services, “The Old Rugged Cross.”  These hymn arrangements have been such a blessing to our team as we have worked on them so rigorously!  I hope you enjoyed singing them as well.  Get to practicing since we will be doing a live recording in less than 2 weeks!
