Back in December 2013 God showed us a vision of a concert, a praise & worship concert located in the community. It was at the Lanihau shopping center (Famous footwear parking lot area), there were hundreds of people there, all from different churches singing praise & worship together. It was pressing on our heart that He was wanting us as individuals to come together, no longer separated but to be in unity and working together.
God showed us what to do, so we assembled a team (which consists of people from different churches) and we started planning.
The first praise & worship concert came to pass on January 30, 2016 at the very location we we saw in the vision. We had over 350 people that attended and 5 different churches from the community participated sharing different styles of music all giving glory to God. This has been our heart ever since, to have available events that bring the community together, to operate as One body, One family as God intended.
Since then, we have done a second concert on August 20, 2016 which was another beautiful night of music and everyone enjoying coming together.
We also started a monthly community worship night, it's held at different locations once a month in town. Utilizing different musicians from different churches to provide music each time. We've had many awesome testimonies from these events, and will continue to have them available in and for the community.
We just want to share Gods love through music and try to bring unity in the community. For us it's about relationship! Because of our own relationship with God it causes us to love on others just as He loves everyone.
We are going “beyond the 4 walls” of a building and going into the community and sharing what we've learned so far with others, people longing to know a kind of love that only God can give. This is shared through the praise & worship music that can speak to a persons heart & soul. It's through those times that an individual can discover & build their own relationship with God.
Know that God loves you!! He doesn't favor one over the other, He loves us all!!
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. — 1 John 4:7-11 (NIV)
And above all these [put on] love and enfold yourselves with the bond of perfectness [which binds everything together completely in ideal harmony]. And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ's] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always]. — Colossians 3:14-15 (AMP)
Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. — Matthew 5:14-16 (MSG)
Beyond 4 Walls-
It's not about us, we are just the vessels doing what we have been asked to do. All Glory goes to God!!
