This Sunday we begin our new series here at Grace Church that we are calling Celebrate Jesus Decade by Decade. Each week we will re-live a different decade as we see a truth about Jesus, ending with the fact that though everything else changes decade by decade, Jesus never changes.
It all kicks off this Sunday as we go back to the 1960's and then on to Easter Sunday and the 1970's. The above pictures show the outfits I may be wearing these two weeks (if they fit and minus the wig).
Each week we will start our service with a pop culture song from that decade. This Sunday, Lisa McCoy will take us back to the 60's with Beattles song, With A little Help From My Friends, recorded in 1967 on the album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This song was written by John Lennon about and for drummer, Ringo Starr, to sing. It is ranked #304 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.
For the decade of the 1970's, all four of our Easter Cleebration services will start with Amy Hoffman singing Gloria Gaynor's song, I Will Survive, which was released in October of 1978 and became one of the most famous disco songs of all time, listed as #97 on Billboard's list of Greatest Songs of All Time.
Each service will also inlcude a great video montage from that decade and each week we will teach a truth about Jesus beginning April 5 with the fact that Jesus died for our sins and continuing on April 12 with the fact that Jesus rose from the dead. From there, it will be on to the 80's, 90's and our current decade!
