Believe Weekend 2022 Band

BRING YOUR BURDENS

We are excited to have Bring Your Burdens Worship with us for Believe Weekend 2022.

Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you.
He will never permit the righteous to be moved. 
Psalm 55:22

A group of Christ-following young adults dedicated to using our talents to glorify the Lord, and to further His kingdom. 

We grew up together in our home church, First Baptist Church of Highlands. Throughout middle & high school, a few of us played together in the student ministry band. We graduated high school and pursued our educational goals until we were asked to lead worship together as a band for our home church’s DNOW in early 2017. That weekend was incredibly eye opening for all of us and we knew that God had a plan for our future. Playing together for this event planted the seed for what would become BYB. After much prayer and consideration, we felt God’s calling to worship ministry.

Thus, we united as Bring Your Burdens Worship in June 2017.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

The year 2021 brought hopes of renewal and movement past a period of pause, shut down, and uncertainty. We looked forward to moments that we easily took for granted when life was “normal.” The subtraction of certain conveniences, the change of pace in life, and many other ripple effects brought clarity to some, confusion to others, anxiety for many. One thought that has held true to me and my family is that no matter what comes our way, our faith in Jesus Christ and His certainty brings great endurance and power in the midst of what looks like a whirlwind of chaos all around. His example as a suffering servant that gave it all to bring us into a right relationship with The Father set the bar for all humanity. This sacrificial love that Christ displayed for us is what we must cling to in the days ahead. As we unpack all that has happened and continue to move forward, we need to move back to what life is truly about. Loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and loving our neighbors as ourselves.
