Church this morning was nice. We went to the 8:45 Contemporary servie. They had a Praise Team (which is familiar to us) and a band (which is new to us). The only song we knew was the very last song that was sung, Blest Be The Tie That Binds. Sammy & I wanted to cross our arms over our chest & hold hands singing it!!! :) (All you Camp Bandina-ers know what I'm talking about!) We were wondering what the difference was in the 10:30 Traditional service, and as we left the sanctuary, I saw some people in choir robes walking towards the front. So, that's atleast one difference.
The kids liked their Bible classes, which is always a good thing! Nick actually celebrated a birthday in his class, so he had a party, complete with cupcakes, balloons & goody bags. I'm afraid he might expect that every time he attends class now. But, the twins had so much fun that even when I came to pick them up, they wanted to finish their paperwork before getting up to go. We actually waited about 10 minutes for them before finally heading home. That's a good sign!
Sammy & I enjoyed the sermon & the friendly faces that greeted us. It was awesome to worship with people from around the world... Japan, China, England, Australia, Africa, India & more. It was awesome to sing with an international Praise Team.
Every day we feel blessed to have this opportunity to live overseas & experience a different culture across the world. Today was another reminder of that!
