Christmas Praise Night a Huge Success!

Thank you to all families, crew, and young musicians that participate in our Dec 20th Christmas Praise Night and our last praise night of 2014!

We had over 40 young musicians and singers come our and sing praises Friday night!  We would also like to thank all families and friends that help set up, tear down, and run sound and media.

We look forward to what the Lord has in store for us in 2015!
