Praise God for great weather during our kick-off party in Anzac! We also want to give a big shout out to Javin and Morgan Carelse for graciously letting us hang out in their backyard and eat delicious pulled pork and burgers. Excitement is high for our first regular youth group this Friday, at least for Pastor Asa…
Would you join us at Jimmy and Heather’s house at 6:00pm? We’ll have dinner together and begin our journey through the gospel of John. Bring your Bible and a notebook. After teaching and prayer time, we’ll play some games and hang out. For directions to the Burchetts’ house and other host homes for this year, scroll down.
Dave Oger, one of the worship leaders at NorthLife Church, and a couple other adult musicians, including Pastor Asa, have collaborated to provide a low-key training and mentoring opportunity for students interested in singing or playing an instrument in a church worship context. This past Sunday was our first session, and we had 5 students enthusiastically participate! You’re invited to stick around after our Celebration Service on Sunday, as close to every week as possible (depending on the availability of our adults coaches). These sessions will run from 12:30-1:30pm precisely.
The format goes like this:
- walk to a nearby eating establishment such as Booster Juice or McDonald’s and bring your lunch back to the sanctuary
- eat your lunch while one of the adults shares a devotional or a thought on the sermon that was just preached that morning
- split up by instruments and vocals to practice one of the songs we’ve picked to learn together as a whole group
- come back together to play and sing whatever we’ve worked on so far
So that’s it in a nutshell. Pretty simple. If you or anyone you know is interested, just come talk to Dave, Nat, or Pastor Asa, and we’ll answer any questions you have. Bring your own instrument if you have one, but we will also provide basic ones at the church such as guitar, piano, drums, and bass.
Throughout the year we will meet in the following homes. The fall calendar includes where we will meet each week.
Jimmy and Heather Burchett | 255 Wild Rose Street
Josh and Sally Samuel | 118 Archibald Bay
