We had a great experience during our first ever ‘House Concert’ tour! Taking us as far west as Texas and as far north as Pennsylvania, with stops along the way in South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana & Mississippi. A very big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who hosted us in your home – or church! We are grateful for your hospitality and support! These concerts were filled with warm moments of worship along with great fellowship and a whole lot of laughs and fun! Your response to this tour blew us away!

“Greetings from Canada. Last spring, my wife and kids were vacationing in Myrtle Beach and arrived very late, and somewhat dejected, one Sunday morning just in time to hear the sermon and your singing of “Hope Now” at Beach Church.
We had just left another church across town where we were turned away at the door because our kids did not want to go to the kids’ ministry. Weird experience. In any case, your singing that day was a welcome healing balm for my family. And I just soaked in the presence of our God as you sang. Thank-you for being His instrument.
I’ve had other such spiritual experiences at churches far away, often without giving thanks to the people involved. I want to change that. To our God all our praise is due, but his hands and feet need a pat on the back every now and then too, for being open to his moving.
So thank-you, and God Bless. We serve such a great God.
Barry – from Canada”
You never know what people are going through. So whatever you do, however you serve, remember that God can use you as a tool in His hands – to breathe hope, peace, love, and healing into someone’s life. People everywhere need to know the Hope that is Christ. Today, let Him use you in His most capable hands to do what only He can do in the lives of others. Who knows, someone from another country, or from the next cubicle, just might need His touch through you.
I was just watching a video from Paul Baloche. He recently released a new CD and the title song is awesome! In the video, he is in a urban area, singing, oddly enough, into a red SOLO cup. The cup is attached to a string and he goes across the city, in various areas, placing other SOLO cups, also attached to strings, where people will walk by.
I watched as numerous people, each wearing headphones, walked by these cups, not noticing the ‘sound’ coming from them that the singer was singing. Immediately I thought, “They are so plugged in they can’t hear.” I thought about our fairly recent visit to South Korea and how plugged in they were – a culture that barely talked on the subway, where everyone, and I mean everyone, had an iPhone or some other smart device. I thought, then, that they were a plugged-in society, not noticing much of anything or anyone around them. Then it dawned on me…Are they plugged in or are they tuned out? Are they missing out on things? Are we missing out on some things…maybe something God is trying to say?
Maybe we, also, are tuned out. Maybe we need to tune in and plug in to our real Source…of strength, of hope, of grace.
I want people to look at my life and say…
She sure is tuned in!
How about you?
A couple of Easters ago, our church was in a series called ARISE. During this series, the idea for the song ‘Arise’ developed as I reflected on what Jesus has done for us. So today, as we celebrate Jesus Christ’s victory over sin and death, remember this… Isn’t it amazing that the same power that raised Christ from the dead can live in us!
Here’s a look at ‘Arise’…
