One of the unexpected blessings of living out here in Chicagoland has been the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people. The networks that God has put me in have been one aspect of ministry that I have come to cherish. I am so grateful to my church for placing such a high value on being a good neighbor in the community.
One such relationship is with the band, Reilly. Through a friend of a friend, I was put in touch with this band about four years ago. We had them come out to play at Annapolooza two years ago, and finally have been able to work out a way for them to come to CF for a concert and to lead worship. I love their hearts for ministry, for the Gospel, and their violin-acoustic rock sound. It’s been neat to watch their maturity as musicians as well as how they’ve grown as families (I’m talking about you, Dan and Nicole)!
We’re excited to host them at our church on Saturday July 23, at 7 pm. It’s a free concert with a love offering. Then, Reilly will stick around and lead us in worship on Sunday morning, July 24 at both our 9:00 and 11:00 services. It’s going to be a treat!
