I will say that church tonight for a concert was not the norm whatsoever but somehow feel like yes, indeed THIS IS the new norm for us. Pastor has preached of the revival that is coming to our church and tonight was just amazing!
We did not have a lot of time to prep for this Harvey benefit free concert but with anticipation of 50 that would want to be baptized and an overflow crowd, we had about 100 on staff ready, a large pool set up, about 15 pop up changing rooms, towels, graphic printed t shirts, draw string long shorts for the baptism and a ton of other prepping done. The parking lot was cleared using our neighbors 3 story parking garage, 2 food trucks in place, awesome music outdoors, 2 large outdoor seating areas and 2 huge screens on the side of our building to view the service inside.
But, I will tell you even with all the prep, we were scrambling to keep up with the crowd. The last I heard we baptized 100!! And we still have tomorrow night! I followed the crowd that went forward to find out more of how God could work in their lives and desired to receive what they had heard about tonight. Trying to estimate the numbers around the altar area, I felt it had to be 600 people. It was amazing. We only allowed guest to fill the church before our own people could sit and the entire bottom floor was filled plus those in the balcony areas also.
I will also share another outfit Styled by Hannah styled for me and pictured in my Outfit Lookbook.
Looking forward to tomorrow. Friday 13th. You had no hold on this day!
