Easter was a blast! Our first Easter worship services in our new sanctuary were incredible! We definitely had a full house, which was a lot of fun – it was exciting to see the potential of our facilities being lived out. What also made it fun for me was that there was no student classes today – we actually cancel Sunday school classes from 6th grade on up through adults for Easter because we want families worshiping together, and with the larger crowds out, on a practical side we need the parking spaces (people were there for an hour instead of two). Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE working with students and I missed having the Student Quest hour, but I loved hanging out in the foyer all three services, greeting the congregation on their way in and out, and getting a look at things from a different perspective than I normally have. I got to meet so many people, talk to so many parents, and even saw some friends from ten years ago!
The worship services themselves were absolutely amazing; incredible music, message, energy, worship – you name it, it was all so great today!
