I’m pretty sure these parents were focused on just TRANSPORTING their children to this Easter egg (candy) hunt – NOT also DANCING too! 🤣Yes, I expected even the “older ones” to move around with me (if they were able!) Relistening to this video now, I hear at least one ENTHUSIASTIC adult in the background who is ALL IN. I LOVE THAT. I wonder who that is??? I think I have an idea!!! ❤️❤️❤️ #goodtimes #JesusisLord #firsts #music ministry
Everyone has firsts and this was one of mine. This was recorded two Easter’s ago (2017) at Unity Baptist Church. I was asked to lead 2 songs to the church community and their guests since I was serving as the Music person for one of the #goodnewsclub schools, a ministry under the Child Evangelism Fellowship Inc. Volunteering each week for the GNC was also a first for me because before serving at Unity, I had never heard of the Good News Club (GNC). I had no idea that we could be invited into the schools to provide a weekly safe, fun, before/after school club opportunity for parents to drop off their elementary school aged children to participate in a club that shared about the Good News of Jesus. I loved that we were asked to bring this program into the schools year after year. I’m so glad I was able to share my love of God and music, which meant that my husband had to adjust his work schedule so that I could go each week.
I remember being nervous before going on but I didn’t want to show it. When you are on stage, you just got to forget about what you “look like” and just DO IT. I keep in mind that this is for the GLORY OF GOD even though I know maybe to some people I looked a bit crazy. I knew that God was with me and this song is so simple but packs a powerful truth- HE IS GOD. “He is God” is by Jana Alayra.
I’ve moved and currently live in South Korea; there are no GNC’s here. But last year, I wore my GNC shirt in tribute of one of the couples I served with at my last Good News Club school – the Zaborsky’s. https://sejanashines.com/2019/03/03/to-live-is-christ-and-assurance-of-salvation/
