Sandy Cove, MD ::: Couples Conference

Pam & I were invited to lead worship for a Couples Conference at Sandy Cove Ministries & Conference Center in Maryland this weekend.  Our good friend Stephen Weaver works at Sandy Cove and it was a bonus to spend some time hanging with him.  There had been two blizzards the week prior to us arriving, so there was about 4 feet of snow on the ground.  A fun change of pace from the desert…but freakin’ cold!

The 250 people here were ready to worship and encounter God together.  It was totally encouraging to be with a generationally and ethnically diverse group of people who dove head first into worshipping God with all their souls.

Because this was a Couples Conference on Valentines weekend, we did a concert of love songs Saturday night.  We performed several “crooner classics” and did a couple originals.  One highlight of the evening was seeing the crowd go crazy when we played our tongue-in-cheek rendition of “Pants On The Ground” as a tribute to the parents of teenage boys.  It was hilarious!

We also talked about the work World Vision is doing, the huge needs out there because of HIV/AIDS and shared the opportunities available to help through child sponsorship.  It was exciting to see 10 kids sponsored this weekend.  Lives changed forever!

These are the songs we led in the worship sets:

Holy Is The Lord
Everlasting God
Mighty To Save
The Stand
Amazed
Hosanna
Here I Am To Worship
Jesus Paid It All

I want to say thanks to the entire staff at Sandy Cove.  This was far and away the best team of people I’ve seen working at a conference/retreat center in all the years I’ve been doing this.  If you get the chance to go to Sandy Cove, don’t miss out on the opportunity.  You’ll love it.

Happy Valentines Day –

Andy
