We had another powerful morning of worship at Bethel today, as we once again focused on the cross. Pastor Tim has been leading us in our journey to Easter by taking a close-up look at the events surrounding the death of Christ by both reading the Word, but also getting a visual reminder by watching it in movie form from the book of Matthew. We started the service with “Here For You” which worked great as a call to worship, helping people focus their thoughts and be reminder why wer were there. We moved right in the upbeat song of praise “Awesome Is The Lord Most High”. Just before the message, we introduced a new song from Paul Baloche’s The Same Love project called “All Because of the Cross”. It was a perfect lead in to the message about why Christ had to die. The song combines the familiar words of “Nothing But the Blood” on the verses, a new chorus, and ends with a bridge that hints at the old familiar chorus “O the Blood Of Jesus”. Combine all those elements with some really interesting rhythms and chord choices, and you have a great song! I got several comments after the service how much people liked the new song, which doesn’t always happen. You can watch a video of this service and also see the Planning Center details.

Zack led the Cafe worship team this morning, and did a great job! It was kind of a stressful morning today because our church hosted a men’s homeless shelter this past week, and this morning they were still there up until an hour before the service started. We had to transform our Family Life Center from homeless shelter into Cafe very quickly! But, with a lot of help, it went fine. It made me truly have compassion on those people who need to set up their teams equipment every week! You can see the Planning Center details for this service.

We had a special guest in all of our services today; Dr. Dwight Perry, the Executive Minister for Converge Great Lakes, was here for a short greeting in each service. Our church is part of Converge Great Lakes, also known as the Great Lakes Baptist Conference, which is part of the Converge Worldwide (Baptist General Conference).
