We had a great time Sunday night with George and Kathleen Abbas as they sang and played several instruments, ranging from trumpet to guitar to ukulele. That’s right, a ukulele. A cute little blue one at that. Both George and Kathy play the piano (very well, I might add), and they also both play the trumpet.
They led us in worship with their very own blend of music and humor that is all based on the Word of God. The songs they sang were mostly what are called Scripture songs. These are the actual words of the Bible set to music providing an awesome vehicle for memorizing the Word of God. Their music appeals to a wide range of ages, from children to senior adult.
We are already looking forward to the next time they are in the area so we can book them again.
We would also like to invite you to visit with us for morning worship on Sundays at 10:00 am. For the next four weeks weeks we will be going through our sermon series entitled “Worship Matters”. We look forward to seeing you at Faith Bible Church of Lake Charles – Your Family Place. Nursery is provided.
If you like encouraging and uplifting music, then consider coming out to hear musicians George and Kathleen Abbas from Denver, Colorado performing at Faith Bible Church of Lake Charles Sunday night October 10th at 6:30 p.m. There is no charge for admission and nursery service will be provided.
Since 1987, George and Kathleen Abbas of Abbas Ministries, Inc., have been traveling full-time, inspiring people of all ages, throughout the U.S. and several foreign countries, with their singing and playing of the piano, keyboards, trumpets, and acoustic guitar. The Abbases have ministered in numerous churches, schools, camps, and conference centers. George and Kathleen’s innovative music is original, positive, rich in content, and full of hope. They present vocal and instrumental arrangements of Scripture songs, hymns and gospel songs, using piano, keyboard, guitar, cornets, using their own orchestrated background music. Audience participation is encouraged in singing new and familiar songs. Teaching the biblical significance of songs, recitations of favorite portions of Scripture, and the winsome poetry of George Abbas, Sr., are interspersed in the service, making for a unique and memorable audience experience.
The objective of the Abbases’ music ministry is best expressed by Colossians 3:16, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
For twelve years they served in the music departments of two Denver area churches. Their home church is Columbine Baptist Church in Littleton, CO, pastored by Harold Marcilliott. (excerpted from www.abbasministries.org)
