Glory-US or Glorious?

Last Saturday night, the Middle School Students taught us a little something about Glory and Christmas.  We learned that the Glory is not all about us (even though our performance was pretty awesome, it is not glory-us).  We give glory to God! And we do that because the glory of God – Jesus – came down from Heaven to meet us where we live – on Earth.

Our school Principal, Dr. Jake Hollatz, directed the 200+ student choir, accompanied by Marco Mejia and his hand-picked praise band.  And that’s not all – Mr. Mejia spent many hours choosing the music and teaching it to the student choir. Pastor Trevor shared an inspiring message to compliment the student speakers.  All of the Middle School teachers were involved at some level, working with soloist and speakers, creating video messages, writing prayers, running practices with the Middle Schoolers, and helping to keep them all focused.  In the end, it was a glorious celebration.

If you missed it, you can click on the short video, or view the pictures. Better yet, come join us Friday morning (12/21) at 11:00 AM for Christmas Chapel where the Middle Schoolers will present a encore celebration. It will be a GLORIOUS event.
