Saturday afternoon, our church welcomed the beginning of Advent by celebrating our Savior, Jesus Christ, who REIGNS! With many original songs and adaptions, a spoken narrative interspersed throughout, and the amazing diversity of our church all together for the glory of God, it was an incredible concert! Every year at this time, I am blown away by the depth of talent, love and commitment displayed by the many musicians and artists (of all disciplines) who reside in our church.
Please enjoy these pictures, taken by Nik. I tried to get everyone but I know that’s impossible so my apologies if I missed you! I also know that there are SO many people to thank and acknowledge so I’m not even going to try. Know that my love and thanks go out to all of you!
Yiayia came with us, which was great, because it meant we could ignore Mark and do all our other jobs. 🙂

If you want to skip to the chorus when all the kids sing, you’ll find them about 2:40, 3:30, and 5:15. I wish you could hear my kids singing along as they watch this – star of wonder loud and proud! (And in case you’re wondering why Ellie appears to be wiping tears from her eyes, she told me all the camera flashes were bothering her eyes.)
yours truly, still loving that skirt Tina gave me so long ago. 🙂
After the concert, the Bazaar was an amazingly beautiful space where the church body pulled together to raise over $3000 to help meet the physical needs of the people in our church and neighborhood! Praise the Lord!
Nik’s and my items in the silent auction (canning lessons from me with totally cute apron donated by another artist and tennis lessons from Nik)
my corn sacks (which all sold!) and my friend’s lovely pillow covers
And now, we will celebrate Advent all December long in preparation for Christmas!
Is there any chance that this program was recorded? We were beyond blessed at last year’s program, but it was impossible for us to make it this year. We were so upset and would love a chance to see it.
HI Cindy! They did record it and I think they’ll be selling copies of it. I would cal or email the church office to find out how to order one.
