It was all things family as children’s entertainers Jesus And Me, along with their parrot puppet, got the kids (and adults) singing, dancing and laughing.
The guest speaker for the Family Celebration service was HumeRidge Church of Christ youth pastor Ross Savill. Ps. Ross has been widely acclaimed for his inspiring work with local Sudanese children, and during his presentation he honoured them by inviting many of them up onto the stage with him.
“These are the real stars,” said Ps. Ross. “And guess what? They are here at church every Sunday night. They are part of the Church of Toowoomba.”
In an honest and heartfelt message to the combined Church of the city, Ps. Ross acknowledged that it’s not always smooth sailing in our families.
“One of the things that I understand is that for many, there are times of deep disappointment and pain that are part of their experience with family,” he said.
“I want to say to you that in your disappointment, God is with you. He feels your distress. I want to encourage you – let Him comfort you today.”
