Family Church

We cancelled church on January 31, 2010. I gathered the family together around 10 am for “FAMILY CHURCH.” Dana was our worship leader (we sang songs from my laptop), Andrew read Proverbs 3:5-6, and with the help of Dana, Mollie prayed for our family and Haiti. Luke and Jake were quiet for most of the “service.”

We learned about what it means to trust God. We had all the kids stand on the couch with their backs to the outside one at a time. We told them to trust means you depend, believe, and are sure you will not be let down. We told them to trust us and fall backwards. I remember doing this in the youth group growing up and being scared I was not going to be caught. Each of the kids turned around and took the plunge without hesitation. Oh, the faith of a child.

I prayed for them afterward for their salvation – to repent and believe in Jesus. I am grateful and humbled to be their dad. Family church ROCKS.
