I’ve heard people talk about Lifechurch.tv for a while now.
I’m in the middle of reading Craig Groeschel‘s book It.
First Assembly participated in the One Prayer campaign that Lifechurch.tv spearheaded.
But, I’ve never attended one of their Internet Campus services, until tonight. 

Tonight (Christmas Eve), I attended.
I participated in worship.
I chatted with other participating from all around the globe.
I talked with the Internet Campus pastor (Brandon Donaldson)
I followed the notes provided as Craig preached.
I flipped thru scripture as he taught.
I was part of a community.

If you’ve never have participated in a service at Lifechurch.tv, you should try it.
It’s incredible.

Miracles: A Candlelight Experience

Sunday night is First Assembly’s annual candlelight service.

We didn’t want it to look like what a traditional candlelight service is.
Where everyone lights and holds a candle and sings, this little light of mine.
I’m just assuming, because I’ve never actually have been to a candlelight service, but that is what I picture in my head.

What it will look like.
We aren’t using our main stage at all.
Three small stages in the middle of the room.
Seating in a big circle around those stages.
Additional project so that everyone can see the visuals.

As you walk they walk in.
Simple, live nativity scene in lobby with joseph, mary, and 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus.
Then move into the auditorium, with low lights, and piano playing.

It begins.

  • Music
  • Poetry
  • Spoken Word
  • Solos
  • Duets
  • Scripture reading

Like popcorn on all three stages.
All about the miracles that surrounded Jesus’ birth.
Lots of them.
Then we tell God that we need a miracle in our life. This is where the candles come into play. 

That’s all I can say.
I don’t want to ruin it.

Your turn.
Does your church do candlelight services?
What’s it look like?
