This morning, we had our special presentation of “Run to the Cross”, an Easter praise and worship musical written by Travis Cottrell. We have typically done our musical on Palm Sunday, versus Easter, so that on Easter we can present a service that allows our pastor to present a full message, and so that all the visitors who come can see what our services are normally like with the music and teams. With the musical taking the whole hour, our pastor delivered a short 5 minute talk during the musical. Even so, we still had so many visitors this morning, and it was so great to see friends, coworkers and neighbors of people in the choir there this morning. We actually had around 700 there this morning, when we typically have around 500-550.
The choir, praise team and soloists did a great job! It was a wonder way to kick off our Easter week services. The musical included several original songs, plus “Stronger” (Hillsong), and a couple other familiar songs.
