I’m sure you’ve heard that phrase before, or even seen the hashtag, #thestruggleisreal.
It’s become somewhat of a “saying” for when we don’t like the ‘minor’ discomfort we are going through, almost making light of true struggles. The fact is, everyone deals with struggles…real struggles, every day of their life. The question is, what are you doing about yours?
Special guest speaker, Julie Tsoukalas, will be with us Friday night and Saturday morning. Here is a little bit about her: Julie Tsoukalas will be happily married for 17 years in May to her handsome hubby Jimmy. Together they have three daughters, Tina (15), Kat (14), and Sia (12). Julie loves her life in Zambia working with the Deaf, but admits she doesn’t love the mosquitos! Julie truly believes that laughter is great medicine, and that the Word of God holds all the answers and hope we need for any and every situation. She looks forward to sharing her heart with you at the conference.
The event will be held at the church and included in the conference fee is dinner Friday night, breakfast and lunch on Saturday.
Blessed Dawn, created by award-winning songwriter Tony Wood, with narration by Dr. Heidi Petak and arrangements and orchestrations by Daniel Semsen, is one of the most profound and provocative Easter musicals in recent history.
Just as the songs portray a landscape of both old and new, the landscape of performance levels found in Blessed Dawn range from the intuitive and accessible to the moderately challenging. Conceptually, the musical strikes tones of great emotion and high celebration, voiced alongside notes of the sorrow, reverence and suffering portrayed in the Passion of the Christ. This new work calls out to those who hear it, urging that you present it with great focus and a special commitment to sharing the message of the Gospel and the power of His resurrection. We pray a special blessing on you and your choir, orchestra, soloists, narrators and media teams, as you present the story of Easter in…Blessed Dawn.
Choir rehearsal starts on February 7 @ 4pm in the Auditorium. The first rehearsal will be followed by a Super Bowl party in the Cafe.
Please join us for a time of fellowship and encouragement. We are entering the holiday season and things can sure get crazy and chaotic! God has done great things in our church throughout this year and the sweet thing is, he’s not finished yet!!
