- I Stand In Awe
- My Eyes Have Seen Your Glory
- The Greatest Command

- What the Lord Has Done In Me
- Higher Ground
- It is Well With My Soul
- Our God He Is Alive
- Shield About Me
- Teach Me Lord To Wait
- Overall the feedback was very positive of the entire event.
- Everyone seemed to really like the new venue (a few still want better acoustics – including myself:)
- Several asked for less talking, and more singing – I hear ya, and we’ll do next year!
- The trend seemed to indicate that most liked the mix of old/new songs, but more this year asked for more older songs. Next year we’ll do a better job of including some “good ol songs” that everyone knows
- Donations this year totaled $9,140 – woo-hoo!!! Thanks for all the kind and generous donations!
- Expenses this year totaled $11,896
- Defecit 0f $2,756
CD & VIDEO RECORDING
- We will be taking orders on this web site soon (set up by Monday November 15th)
- See facebook for many photos and video recordings
- My apologies for not explaining the catered dinner very well to the attendees. The Carolina FC Boosters paid for half of the catered dinner (that is why is was only $6)
- In exchange for paying for half of our dinner, they took 20 minutes for a short presentation on the school
- Next year we’ll do a better job of explaining this
THANKS EVERYONE!!!!!! We hope to see all of you and a few friends next year.
