About a year ago Martin Smith of the Christian music group Delirious met with eleven other Christian songwriters for a week of songwriting. During this time together they wrote twenty-two songs. After the retreat,and just a few weeks later, they recorded the best fourteen songs. All the proceeds from these songs are given away because the copyrights are owned by Compassionart, "a charity dedicated to seeing works of art generate income for the poorest of the poor." Andy Park was one of the tweleve contributors to this project. Andy is a gifted and anointed worship leader and songwriter whose songs are song by the Church throughout the world. I am excited to announce that Andy is coming to the Coachella Valley for a night of Worship and Compassion on January 31, 2009. We are hosting the event at Faith Community Church at 6:30 p.m.and will benefit the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission (CVRM).
The "admission" to this night will be gifts of food and clothing. Please bring bulk items of food and toiletries, as well as clothes. Our donations will picked up that night by CVRM and will benefit the men, women and children who come to the mission for help.
This Night of Worship and Compassion will provide us with the opportunity to express our gratitude and thanksgiving to God through worship that has "legs." Taking action to help the poor will bless others and bless the heart of God. This is an incredible and wonderful opportunity for us to gather as the Body and express the heart of God by giving ourselves to Him in worship and giving to those in need. It will be a huge blessing to have Andy Park join us as we launch into this next year. Tell everyone you know!
