Senior Sing

Last Saturday the Seniors of New Life Church, or those who "had passed the midpoint of their lives," received a gift. They enjoyed a hymn sing with a full gospel band.

Roger Beltz had been playing music with a group of friends for years. Instead of simply continuing to do it for their enjoyment only, he proposed they serve someone with it. So, in the words of one of the band members, "he cooked this up."

Every detail was taken care of. Every table was set with beautiful roses. They produced their own hymnal. They provided food and even cleaned up. What a blessing it was to so many that Roger and company took the words of Jesus and applied them in a practical way:

"Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Mark 10:43-45
