North Hills Community Church

I love Matt and Charity's church! Click here to check out the church's website. You can even listen to recent sermons online. I really like the music in the service. Tonight, the kids were in the service and I was able to take communion with the girls. There are two big screens that give the words to the songs. Peyton moved down a bit away from me so that she could see the words to sing. I glanced down at her and watched her sing "Amazing Grace" and "The Wonderful Cross." The church is a bit more, ahem, expressive than what we are typically used to. Peyton got into it though, and she was, somewhat timidly, raising her hand in praise during the singing. I had to smile, it reminded me so much of myself at her age. It is rare for Peyton to remind me of myself in any ways. She is SO MUCH like Brad. So it was kind of neat to see a bit of myself in her. Mostly, it was a blessing to see her enjoying the worship music, and praising the Lord.
