Campion’s select choir, Koinonia, had the opportunity to go to Boulder Seventh-day Adventist Church in order to participate in the service this past Saturday morning.
During the service, the group, led by Music Director Cecilia Simmons, performed four pieces: “Modimo Reboka Wena”, “Run, Mary, Run”, “O Love” and “Like a River in My Soul”.
Ariel Patterson, a member of Koinonia, and whose home church is Boulder SDA, shared, “It was great having Koinonia show up at Boulder and everyone there really liked it. Also, it was awesome being able to be a blessing to churches other than Campion’s and share our music with them.”
In addition to the choir pieces, some of those students also led other parts of the service such as praise and worship time and the children’s story.
Phoebe Mamanua and Dwayne Rey got to share one of their childhood memories during the children’s story which had taught them how God could guide them whenever they needed directions. Rey commented, “I thought it was fun doing a children’s story because the kids there were engaged and responsive to what Phoebe and I were sharing and our message was able to get through clearly.”
After the service, Boulder Church had thoughtfully prepared a potluck for the group to enjoy before heading back to Campion Academy.
Simmons shared about the experience, “Bad joke time. You’d think with a name like Boulder SDA, the church would be all stony and standoffish. No sir! They were such a welcoming venue. And the acoustics were top notch! We have to go back just to experience the warmth, community, and crazy good acoustics.”
