Sunday Worship… in Starbucks???

by Janice

I didn’t get to church this morning… in fact, since our church no longer has an evening service, I miss church more often than I make it.

So tonight, as I am sitting in my usual spot at Starbucks, I am listening to Newsboys for some much needed worship while I work.

I needed to hear this song, He Reigns. I always need to hear it.

I thought perhaps you might want a little late night worship too…

Our church meets ONLY on Sunday nights.. too bad it is a zillion miles away from you ;)
Worship can happen anytime anywhere though :) Love that song.

I love that song, too. Thanks for starting my Monday out right! Yesterday, we had our church service outdoors in our pumpkin patch! It was a beautiful way to worship among the gorgeous colors of the pumpkins.

Isn’t great that you can meet with God even over a cup of coffee!!
Love this song.
Just sat down to do my Monday bill paying and other not so fun stuff.. so this song just lifted my spirit and reminded me the TRUE purpose for this day.

Blessings to you my friend..

God truly is everywhere at every moment… Even in Starbucks! Sometimes I feel the most connected to Him in the most inopportune places!

I love this song! ;) It’s on my MP3 player. It’s one of Olivia’s favorites, as well.

I haven’t been able to get to church for a few weeks now either. I spend plenty of time in worship at home (mostly while I’m cleaning or cooking…great times for singing praises, you know?) Thanks for sharing a little of your worship with us, we can all use a little more of that fellowship. :)

Well, I guess something like that could be nice. :)

love Newsboys! it is important to fellowship with Christians! there is always a strong force of God’s grace when we get together as a church family!

Rock on, Janice! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!

I first got to know about the Newsboys when I worked in radio in the 80s (they were just starting up back then), but their style never caught on with me. My youngest son LOVES the Newsboys and is always begging me to download mp3s for him. I’ve become hooked on their music! “He Reigns” is SPECTACULAR!

Thanks for sharing the video (and your inspiring story).

Please? Church? Really?

Definitely sister! Cleaning the house, at Starbucks, or just driving along in the car. God really is everywhere.
