Now that Molly is in middle school, she’s moved up to the youth choir at church.

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.

3rd Grade Bible

Traditionally in the Methodist church, 3rd graders are presented with Bibles. Leah was excited to get hers from Pastor Mandy.

In that same service, Leah also sang with her choir. It was a busy morning for her.

Family Worship

August was Family Worship at Glen Mar, so the kids got involved. Molly and Leah were joined by Simon to read the scripture one Sunday.

The next Sunday was even better. I got to lead worship with both my daughters. I loved it, and both girls did a great job.

Shipwreck VBS. Molly and Simon moved up to VBX (x-treme) this year for rising 6th & 7th grade. They all had a blast!

Super Christmas

Christmas Eve service was fun this year. It was a Super Christmas, featuring a band of superheroes (and Mary and Joseph). Molly was given the role of Wonder Woman. I was leading music, so Jen made me the perfect shirt to wear on stage.

Hulk lifted this boulder in the skit, but clearly Wonder Woman would have had no trouble with it as well.

And here’s the whole skit for you to watch.

Leah was too young to act in the skit, but did an excellent job leading the call to worship.

Sadly, she was too short to see over the heads of all the standing adults.

Walk to Bethlehem

Posted in Church on December 10th, 2017 by c-had – Be the first to comment

Every year (for the past 10 years), our church has put on Walk to Bethlehem. This is a walk-through event where folks can experience the Christmas story. All four of us participated this year, with some new and fun roles.

A lot of people come through, and at times there can be a few hundred people waiting to get in outside. So, the church has a tent with chairs and entertainment alternating between music and magic. I was one of the entertainers, playing guitar and singing Christmas songs. It was warmer than it’s been in previous years, though my fingers were still numb by the end of each of my sets.

Jen worked a tent in the Bethlehem marketplace making macramé bracelets.

Leah again worked the animal tent in the marketplace, helping patrons with little animals like hamsters and a hedgehog.

This year Molly got her first larger role at Walk to Bethlehem. She played the child in the Simeon scene (when baby Jesus was presented at the temple).

Baby Jesus looks a lot like Pastor Jen’s new baby.

If any of you want to see Molly in another role, make sure to come to the 9:30am or 11:00am service on Christmas Eve at Glen Mar. I think she’ll be wonderful.
