Battle of the Bands

Ok, I am a little overwelmed right now about what happened tonight at Keystone's very first public Student Event. Tonight we held a Battle of the Bands at Hillwood Middle School. Hillwood is where we meet every Sunday. Hillwood Middle School has been a great friend to Keystone in trusting us to use their facilities for our events. If you know someone in Keller ISD, give Hillwood PROPS!

Anyways, back to my initial thought...we opened the doors at about 6. And students started pouring in...not trickling...POURING!!! The room was starting to fill up and fill up and...I went out into the hallway to see if they were all in and when I looked....the hallway was packed with student trying to get in. We made 600 regsitration cards and we ran out!!! Our team who was registering estimated (conservative) that an additional 100-200 students came in. So we had between 700-800 students at our first event for students! OH MY! Even while I type it my heart is moved to thank God for finding favor with us this evening. Thank you for all the prayers and support.

If you attend Keystone and if you get a chance, tell Angie Burton and Bill Jones for their amazing leadership in producing this event. Also tell the Youth Ministry team thanks for a great job!

If you don't have a church home or you are just now checking out this Jesus thing and you don't understand what I mean by church home (that's ok - it actually sounds pretty cheesy) - please come check out Keystone! We would love to share our heart - Love God - Love Others - Love Life!

I want to end with a verse...
Ephesians 3:20
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

'nuff said! Brian
