Christ’s Family Church is holding an evening of praise and worship (through music) and it is inviting the community to join in the worship.
“Stand Up and Lift Up your Hands Praise and Worship Night” will be celebrated from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 19, in the Hastings Middle School Auditorium, 1000 W. 11th St.
“All the people present for Praise Night currently serve in Christ’s Family Church music ministry, “ said Rob Pasch, music ministry leader. “The groups are made up of people young and old with good musical skills and hearts which desire to lead the body of Christ to an encounter with the Holy Spirit.”
Christ’s Family Church music ministry will provide the praise and worship music March 19. Also performing will be Sacred Road and the Youth Music Ministry led by Derek Fairbanks.
The music groups, individually and together, have participated in and led worship services over the years. They have worshiped together at community praise nights and Bless Hastings services.
“We have done different types of worship services over the years,” said Pasch. “The purpose of some services is to bring together the body of Christ as whole, regardless of church affiliation. What could please God more than hearing his children worship with one voice, one loud voice.”
The songs March 19 will be known to many, and local individuals have written several.
“The songs chosen will be familiar to people so they can invest themselves wholeheartedly or, as I like to say, with reckless abandonment,” said Pasch. “When the children of God bring a sacrifice of praise and an offering of worship, the experience is life changing.
“Over and over, we hear testimonies of hearts changed by the Holy Spirit during a time of worship,” he said. “There may also be several songs written by local individuals which lend themselves to corporate praise from a very personal perspective.”
Pasch stressed this will be an evening of praise and worship, and not a concert. It is for everyone.
“The praise service will focus on leading the body of Christ to worship God,” he said. “The musicians’ only desire is lead the body to glorify God – our focus will be on Him who sits on the throne, not those who stand on the stage.”
