What a great weekend of ministry – April 9-12, 2016. This blog post is to document the ministry, the people involved and to give God glory.
Friday – April 7 – We set up for the Beautiful U Girls Conference at Troy United Methodist Church in Troy, IL. One new aspect was the number of women from the church who decorated a table for the girls. 16 tables were decorated by the ladies and the girls loved them! [see pictures]
Saturday, April 8 – There were 100 girls in attendance for this year’s Beautiful U Girls event. It was a great day! The Harvest Band and Team included Emily Gray, Ryan Kennett, Drew Allsman, Jackson Price and Tim Price. Jim Hall, Daniel Perry and Mark Fresen were the sound and tech crew. Blaire Paubel helped with computer graphics. Suzanne Price and Christine Fuesz designed the event and pulled all the details together. Tim Price spoke during the first session, Megan Tyler spoke during the lunch time devotion, and a panel of women, including Tracy Smith, Emily Gray, Karen Paubel and Marilyn spoke during the closing session. Other speakers and leaders during the day were Linda Stone, Elizabeth Grant, Dawn Averso, and Layne Paubel, Katie Haas, Abbie Aymer, Carol Sisson, Gail Joiner, Shelby Riddle, Mary Kennett, Jessica Price, Heidi Jackson, Jessie George, Malissa Lorton and all their helpers. There were approximately 30 churches represented during the event.
And this event, along with Fire-Up are probably the places the most Harvest People are connected – there were 9-10 Harvest team members from past and present teams serving in ministry.
We’re praying for the lives of teenage girls – that they would understand God’s great love for them and for their worth as His children.
April 10 – Following the service, one Harvest Team headed out to Jacksonville, IL to lead worship for a family ministry event. The team for this service was Hailee Anglin, Sadie Murbarger, Daniel Tatjenhorst, Kyle, Tim, Suzanne, Ruby and Macy Price. Thanks to Rachael and Rachel from the church for inviting us!
Another Harvest Team also headed out on Sunday afternoon to kick off worship for a revival in Lawrenceville, IL. Nathan Peel led worship and was joined by Gabe Smith and Jessica Przybylski.
[On a side note, Sunday morning was also fun as Jackson Price joined in helping to lead worship at Troy UMC].
April 11-12 – Tim Price drove over to Lawrenceville to serve in worship leadership for the remainder of the revival, joined by both Kim Przybylski and Jessica Przybylski. Awesome preaching, awesome congregation and a great men’s prayer breakfast on Tuesday morning. Thanks to Pastor Gary Pearce for his leadership and hospitality.
