Today we had our first services in the new auditorium. The pictures tell the some of the story...
During the 9:00 service, every seat appeared to be taken (1,040) and there were a couple hundred people sitting on concrete steps in the unfinished balcony. The 11:00 was also packed, but there weren't quite as many in the balcony. Next week's Saturday night service should relieve some of the pressure.
(Below) Every hand seemed to be raised during "Jesus Paid It All". It was cool to see the worship temp so hot on the first day of services, and the focus of every song, drama, video, and message was Jesus Christ and his kingdom (i.e. not the building).
The Cafe provides a great place to hang out and enjoy some bean.The baptistry in the entry serves as a reminder of our union with Christ.
The video room was in full gear.
The green room is a great place for the servants who lead us throughout the weekend to hang out and relax.
This sweet little baby is Jaida Paullus, the new daughter of Andy and Jill (who serves on staff with TSC). God has a special plan for her life- may He lead her on a path of righteousness for his name's sake. Bless you, Jaida!
For family movie night, we were struggling on what to watch. tvland.com saved the day with some "Leave it to Beaver" and "Brady Bunch".
