237 people at Out Of The Box Worship Center this morning in the two services and what an awesome service it was. When I left home this morning and as I drove up the interstate to get to the building, there was a spirit of joy that was un-explainable except for The Holy Spirit of God. Once I got to OOTBWC there was the same spirit of joy in the praise team as they were warming up and getting ready to lead this morning. It was a feeling of freedom or I should say, a spirit of freedom. A freedom to praise God, a freedom to bask in His presence, and lets just say it was AWESOME.
Here are a couple of fb and twitter posts for you to see what I see.
“What a service Out Of The Box Worship Center this morning. Living the good life and hip hop to boot. Being a Christ follower does not make us good, it makes us forgiven. In our church, we have the right to be wrong but we don’t have the right to be mean to others. I would love to invite you to my church where anyone is welcome ♥” Rebecca Stanley Roberts

Then the blessing of such precious children. God I praise you with all that I am. Your love and how You work before we even know brings joyful tears to my eyes. Thank You God for this wonderful place of worship. May OOTBWC be blessed and may many be blessed by You at OOTBWC. Help us God to reach out far and show people Jesus.” Sandra Patton
