What a great start to the weekend! We arrived at the Convention Center around 7:30 after filling our bellies at the Salisbury mall. General Session #1 started at 8:00 with worship from Starfield, one of my favorite bands! They'll be leading worship all weekend. Two of the best songs they played were "I Will Go" and "Revolution" - take a minute to listen!
Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil brought the Word! The theme for the whole weekend is "Masterpiece" - we are all created by God with a purpose. Dr. McNeil used the imagery of a puzzle to help us understand that we are all a unique piece of the puzzle as the Body of Christ. When even a single piece is missing, the puzzle is incomplete. We all have an obligation as Christians to step up and play our part!
The session ended with a concert by Anthem Lights, a Christian boy band of sorts. They sang a few covers of popular songs, including Taylor Swift, One Direction, and of course, Let It Go. The show ended with a few of their original songs. Our students really seemed to enjoy singing along and dancing together!
We're now checked in at our hotel and most are asleep! A full day awaits us tomorrow. Check out a few pictures from this evening at the top!
