Since 2006, summer has been filled with the amazing opportunity to be involved in a children’s muscial production at our church, thanks to the talent and hard work of people like Jeremy, Brooke, Karen, Kendra, Kara, and so many others. The musicals just keep getting bigger and better! This year there were so many participants that Jeremy had to split them into two groups. For the audience, that just means two nights of truly being entertained.

This year’s extravaganza is Paul, which chronicles the life of a man who thought he was serving God, but after a personal encounter with Jesus Himself, learned exactly what he had been missing. Through his stories, others also learn how God can be an integral part of their lives as well. Told with witty dialogue and wonderfully crafty songs, Paul has been the hallmark of our summer. All four boys took part in the younger musical, while Hannah was in the second part. Patrick was blessed to get the part of Old Paul, the narrator. Brendan played the part of Stephen and had a solo, while Andrew was a biker and Ben played a townsperson. Hannah also got the chance to sing a solo and play the part of a hippie. (Did you know there were bikers and hippies in Paul’s time?) Below are some random shots taken of the kids while they either rehearsed or performed. Todd also played a big part as set designer and builder and, along with Dave, created a massive set which included an incredible 35′ long boat.

We are so thankful that Jeremy not only has the vision to take on projects like these, but also the work ethic and help to actually walk them out. I’m confident that my kids will NEVER forget the summers they had when they did musicals and will look back on them fondly after they’ve grown.
