Good Friday was excellent at our church. Way more people can than we expected! Everyone from age 5 to 95 was in the service together and apparently it went swimmingly. I was not there as I was hanging with 14 preschoolers! We showed the above video, which admittedly is meant for older children, but they did understand and grasp much of it. They were asking questions and it was so exciting to see their little heads understand more of the Jesus Story for the first time! It was a joy to work with these little ones alongside some awesome High School students.
Last night I had 9 High School girls over to my house for the night. It was such a laugh and a great time for relationship building. We ate lots of food and watched 3 Hilary Duff movies. The best part was I got to sleep in my own bed :)
I'm about to leave Starbucks and head into the first Easter Service this weekend! I was pretty hands-off with the planning of this one so I'm excited to see it all come together. We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus every Sunday, but man, I'm glad there's this extra special emphasis once a year. So many will come to Church this weekend that don't go the whole rest of the year.... I'm praying for churches everywhere that we will present the Gospel in a way that is convicting and will draw more people back to Him!
