Singing in the Park

Even the little ones like to sing.

Every year, the for the past three years, the Chandler Street Church of Christ has taken worship out into the community. Generally on the 5th Sunday of each month we just all come together and do worship in song. It is a great time. If you have never worshiped with the Churches of Christ, you are in for a treat. All of the songs are sun Acapella. For many Christians, this is a foreign concept. Not to get into any theology or whatever, I just believe it sounds so beautiful.

 

Well, on this Sunday, we went out into the Kilgore City Park and sang for a little over an hour. We had about 91 people show up. That is a great number considering it was nearly 100 degrees outside and the sun was beating down on us.

We always invite other congregations and the community to join us for this time of song. It is very interesting to watch the people stroll by and stop and want to listen to the music. We even get a few who will come and join us.

 

After the singing, we cut up fresh cold watermelons. This is always a treat for the younger ones as the older people teach that long time traditional sport of seed spitting. It is just absolutely fun to watch kids try and spit a watermelon seed. For many of the kids, this is the first time they are ever allowed to spit anything out of their mouths in public. It is a lot of fun and the members seem to like to just get out and have an excuse to eat watermelon with each other. Everyone is and was welcome and we look forward to next years.
