There’s something really amazing about the one-service schedule, seeing the entire church gathered in one room. The singing is vibrant, the fellowship is tangible – it’s really a cool thing.
We opened yesterday with a Hillsong Grownups tune called Forever Reign.
After our call to worship we sang Let God Arise, Rejoice the Lord is King, Break Through, and Breathe.
Our offering song was Everything.
For communion, I sang Enough, How Deep the Father’s Love for Us, and Breathe.

Especially in the 35242 zip code – how desperate are we for Christ. Are we able to say “the riches of your love will always be enough?” or are our lives filled with so many other distractions, junk, time-wastes, IDOLS….
