Leah and her choir sang again this past Sunday.

After watching Leah sing, Molly headed off to Sunday School. We were surprised to see her a few minutes later serving as the acolyte. Apparently the girl who was supposed to do it didn’t show, so Molly was recruited on her way to Sunday School.

Snow tubing

Our church youth group took a trip to Liberty (about an hour and 15 minutes away) to do some snow tubing. It was a youth trip, but adults that came along could bring their younger kids as well. So, our whole family went, as well as the girls’ friends who live behind us. Leah was happy to be included.

We had a great time. Hard to believe we live so close to snowy mountains and we’ve never done anything like this until now. Thanks to the Glen Mar youth group for setting this up.

Youth Sunday

Yesterday was Youth Sunday at Glen Mar. This was Molly’s first year classified as a youth (since she’s now in middle school), and she jumped in with both feet. She joined the planning committee putting together the services for the weekend, and also participated in all 3 services on Sunday morning. I’ll start with the 11:00 contemporary service (which is what we’re normally involved in), and then jump back to the traditional ones.

At 11:00, Molly joined the band. She’s sung with the band before, but this was her first time being the lead singer for a song. She was fantastic!

She also showed off her personality welcoming everyone at the beginning of the service, and of course helped out singing all the other songs as well. Nice job Molly!

But the 11:00 service was not the only service she participated in. At both our traditional services (8:00 and 9:30), she sang in Joyful Noise, our youth choir, and played in the youth orchestra.



So, she planned the services, sang in the choir twice, played in the orchestra twice, welcomed the congregation, and sang in the band including her first ever lead. I was a bit worried she was biting off more than she could chew (I mean, she’s just a 6th grader - barely in the youth group), but she did a great job at everything.

A Super Christmas Sequel

Glen Mar decided last year's superhero-themed Christmas Eve service was so awesome, they had to do a sequel this year. Our family was heavily involved. I played guitar and led singing. Leah was one of the worship leaders and also sang in the choir. And Molly reprised her role as Wonder Woman. This video isn't the whole service - just the stuff the girls were involved in, which is admittedly almost the whole service.

Eye of the Storm

Molly and I got to perform a song together for the first time in October. We first performed this on the Fall Youth Retreat, then did it a second time at Children's Worship at church a week later (which is what you see here in the video). Make sure to watch the whole thing so you don't miss Molly's solo.
