Tonight we attended the evening worship service at our church. Thomas was playing with the youth praise team. They have been together for a year and a half and they get better each month! The piano playing is smooth. The drum playing is strong and powerful. The acoustic guitar is solid. The singers are soulful. And the electric guitarist, who had a couple of solos, is out of this world! LOL.
Out of all our praise teams, I believe the Youth one is the best. I'm biased, of course. But I wasn't the only one who complimented them tonight. I heard at least three or four other people praising them as well. People lingered after the service to hear their last song which was followed by a small applause (not something you usually hear in the Christian Reformed Church). The team's performance is getting better and better. And they truly seem to be enjoying it (if Thomas' head bopping is any indication). In a day and age where so few youth attend church, it is heartwarming to see the youth leading the worship. It is heartwarming to see them using their God given talents to worship Him. Thank you, Youth Praise Team!
