God is with us! What a great Sunday we had!
We arrived at San Pasqual High School @ 8:30 am and began putting up our banners which came out amazing. We then had our school connections show up around 8:45 to open up the place and let us in to set up. We quickly got everything we needed to done and were able to catch out breath for a moment. Our only glitch the first Sunday was the front backdrop, but as you can see from the picture it turned out great as well. People began to arrive around 10:25 and it was a great time of fellowship and anticipation. Our worship team, Matt Thompson, Brandon Cuevas, and Anne Marie Pinkerton ran through the set list and we were ready to go.
We took a moment to pray together as a group. This gave us a moment to catch our breath and focus on the One who had brought us here and that we were here to worship Him, not put on a show, and then we were off and running. The Brandon and the worship team did a great job on With or Without You/We are Hungry at the 5 minute clock, we then read John 15:1-5 at the end of that piece. We moved into more worship with Amazing Grace/My Chains are Gone, Blessed Be Your Name, and Mighty to Save. Kris did an amazing job with the message and challenged the people with the Word. More worship with Center, Refiners Fire (Matt did an excellent job with this piece), and Our God. It was then time for Pink to talk briefly about why we were in Escondido and then we were done. It seemed like it ended as quickly as it started. It was an incredible morning.
We had 86 people there which was a very good start! Our next service will be on February 6th, 2011.
