King Street is the area’s largest church but until today I had not had the opportunity to visit them.
Unfortuantely I didn’t read their web-site well enough and we ended up at their blended service instead of the contemporary one.
However, that was by far the best blended service I’ve ever seen.
Their 50+ member choir rocked it out.
I guess the thing I liked best about them wasn’t neccisarily their song selection or singing ability but the “attitude” in which they sang.
They were having fun and you could tell they really believed what they were singing.
They had a guest speaker so I wasn’t able to gauge that aspect of their services, although the guest speaker gave a good message on compassion.
One funny thing happened…the lady sitting next to me stole mu bulletin. Don’t think she did it intentionally but I was partially sitting on it so you’d have thought she’d have at least asked.
One other cool thing was seeing that Ryan Payne was playing acoustic guitar, in the background, for King Street’s worship team.
Ryan’s band is really growing and has quite a following and I expect one day they will be signed by a major Christian label. Neat to see hi humble himself to serve.
Reminds me of what Brian Houston, pastor of Hillsong Church, said about Darlene Zschech when she was becoming famous…”She has never forgotten that she’s to still serve in her home church”.
After the service was over I got to meet the Senior Pastor, John Beukema. Seems like a nice guy and I’m proud that we get to partner with King Street and so many other great churches in our area to reach people for Christ.
I’ve said it before an I’ll say it again…It’s not about United or CFCOG, it’s about Jesus and the Church which He died for. I’m glad we have other great churches in our area…we’re not in competition, but partners together.
We meet with Lisa’s sister and her family for lunch at Red Robin. The 4 of them plus Lisa and I all share birthday’s within about a 40 day period…4 of us within 11 days…so this turned out to be our birthday meal.
Funny thing was Lisa and Gayle were texting each other while we were there. I look up and over in the corner were the whole Krull family having lunch. In other words Lisa and Gayle were in the same restaurant texting each other and didn’t even know it.
Of course we had some fun sending her texts about things she was doing and wearing…finally she caught on and realized we were there.
Time for a nap and then our normal Sunday night crew will be getting together.
Vacation is almost done…enjoyed it and for the most part I’m refreshed…can’t wait to see everyone next week!
