Today was the 5th Sunday of the month and as such was a youth Sunday. These very special sundays are an opportunity for our children and youth to lead the worship service, select the songs, share their God-given musical gifts of singing, playing instruments and public speaking/reading. Our children & youth are truly the future of the church and keeping them invovled, supporting them, teaching them the ways of the church and letting them share pieces of themselves with all of us is the way to encourage their spiritual growth and be blessed by them at the same time.
Today was a true blessing to my own heart. We had participants as young as 4 years old up to 13 leading our service today. God bless the little children, and thank you for blessing all of us with their passion and confidence to stand in front of the entire church family and share a part of who they are.
