Lakewood Church-Houston, Texas

Lila and Karsyn praising Jesus

This past Saturday we met some good friends of ours downtown for dinner and church at Lakewood (Joel Osteen's mega-church). Dinner at Buca di Beppo was so delicious, and we ate way too much pizza and chicken parm., but a little splurge here and there can't hurt! Afterwards, we headed over to the church for their Saturday night service. It wasn't nearly as crowded as it is on Sunday mornings, which was nice. We got a great seat, and the babies were able to stand up on the seats in front of us and watch while the music was played. The music was so fabulous and the huge crowd of people there singing made it that much better. The service didn't even start until after Lila's bedtime, so she was extremely tired and fussy during the message but was able to crawl around and play with some toys at the top of the stairs with Josh. After the service, we got a chance to meet Joel. He is a super nice guy and spent a minute or two talking with us and getting to know us. We spent a while afterwards looking through the huge bookstore that they have in the church lobby. There were so many neat things in there as well as a great children's section. It was a late night for our Lila Boo, but it was well worth it. We had a great time out with our friends! Thanks Ashley for letting us borrow your camera for the pics :)

  2. What a great experience! We attended Max Lucado's church, Oak Hills Church, when we were stationed in San Antonio. If you ever get a chance to go to San Antonio, I definitely recommend checking out the church--it is great. It is extra special for us too because that is where we had Caroline dedicated. :)
