 Above is the Men's Songbook that we use in Services.  We also sing contemporary songs with our praise band that plays at the beginning of Service.  

We hold our own Chapel service with our Men early Sunday mornings (Wednesday evenings too) and most of the time head over to the Corps (Church) when we're finished, although if other things in our family need attention, we pass after already attending 2 Services in a week, it can quickly become a drudgery for the kids, not matter how you put it ;)  Some of our Men attend there too and a few Alumni. 
It's a GREAT Corps (Church). We have felt most welcomed personally and in ministry partnering too. There are several retired officers that inspire me to keep going no matter what and others in the Corps with a strong Witness. 

We participated in United Divine Service Sunday (aka Youth Sunday) at our new church. 
Moonbeams: Hannah, Mary and Sunbeam: Ann

David played with the band.

Elijah is such a natural behind the pulpit.  He gave the Welcome and Announcements, the very detailed version :)

A young man from the Corps who is 13, I believe, gave the Message.  He asked to give it and he wrote it too.  It was such a blessing to our Corps to hear him.  I was so blessed and reminded that we must really listen to the hearts of our young people.   Too often we forget what they're up against and ask them to face things that are even difficult for mature adults to face.   I pray this young man keeps on pursuing Christ and sharing his Witness because he does it so well! 

A Major and his girls.  It pushes his buttons when we call him "Major Daddy" though!(hee!hee!)

Elijah in his Jr. Soldier uniform.  Ann can't hardly wait to make her promise when she turns 7 in just a few short weeks.  I pray they keep their fervor!

Here we are. 
"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. "
~Deuteronomy 7:9

David put my loops and nametag on. 
He wears it well doesn't he?

I love to see how you involve your whole family in ministry. It will come as naturally as breathing to them as they grow up. What wonderful pictures :)

I love it!! I can't believe how big baby Mary is!! Poor Liv feels pretty left out on Wednesdays when the other two go to moonbeams. They start at 4 here.

So awesome!!!! What a blessing to see all the kiddos in their uniforms. Sunbeams are blue now? They used to be that ugly brown and right? LOL! Much better.

Have a wonderful day and I pray that we can make contact again. I feel like I am in Star Trek. "Spock, What do you mean?"!!!
