Steve Pettit week: Amazing Grace Sunday thru Irish Sacred Concert Friday
Sunday, April 26, 2009, marks the start of a week of special meetings at Brookfield's Brookside Baptist Church with our staff evangelist Steve Pettit and his musical team. Photo is Steve and his team performing at our church picnic last summer. (Steve is the one in the red shirt with the mandolin.)
Steve is a gifted preacher and his group is very talented; the week of special meetings promises to be a good one for the whole family. Their musical style ranges from traditional to Blue Grass to Irish. April 26 - May 1 schedule:
Sunday: Amazing Grace Sunday. Service times are 8:30 am, 10:45 am and 6:00pm.
Monday: Men's Steak-out, 6:00pm. (Catered by Texas Road House, cost $5)
Tuesday: Ladies Night, 6:00pm. (Catered by Olive Garden, cost $5)
Wednesday: Family Night, 7:00pm.
Thursday: Teen Cola War, 5:15pm. (I think this has something to do with Coke vs Pepsi!)
Friday: Irish Sacred Concert, 7:00pm (This should be fabulous! I have a few CDs from the Pettit team and their music is first rate.)
Saturday? There is no Saturday meeting. The team packs up and moves onto the next location on Saturday to do it all again next week! These people are real troopers; they get around.
Although Steve Pettit is on our pastoral staff, we rarely see him. He is almost always on the road. Recently he hosted a tour of the Holy Land for our church. Check out his pictures from Israel.
As I mentioned, I have several CDs from Steve Pettit. Some have traditional hymns played in their unique style, some have new works, and some are just pure fun with songs like Foggy Mountain Breakdown and Puttin' on the Dog. I'm looking forward to seeing them perform live--tin whistle and all.
