Psalm 150:6 says, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” Pretty cool, right? Everything and every one should praise the Lord. And that’s one reason why we think you and your kids should join us on February 1- so we can praise God because He has made us to worship Him!
So, in case you need a few more reasons, here’s a quick list of why you should show up with your family.
1) There’s something pretty cool about the fact that our kids and parents and other Grace folks can worship together! I mean, we just don’t have the space to do that on a normal weekend, so this is a great opportunity for kids to see their moms and dads and others…praying, singing, shouting, praising God, and showing the kids that worshiping God can be fun and meaningful at the same time.
2) Our kids can lead the way! We’re going to be singing songs that our kids have been learning in KidZone… as well as songs that you’ll be familiar with… that engage a kids’ heart, mind, and body. God has wired kids with a unique ability to express themselves in a variety of ways (i.e.- clapping, singing, jumping up and down, etc.) As adults, we need to be reminded that there is no one “right”
or “correct” way to worship. In fact, we need to remember that worship is a lot less about how we look doing it, or singing the right notes, or and how loud the music is and a lot more about our heart. (Jeremiah 24:7, Matthew 15:7-9)
3) When else can you say you had a family picnic in February inside the Worship Center? I mean, seriously, that’s just super awesome and you can’t deny it.
So…put it on your calendar: Friday, Feb 1 at 6:00. BYOP (bring your own picnic) and “rock out” with us as we praise God together!
