Creation 2011 Starts With A Bang With Newsboys And Chris Tomlin On Day One

Creation 2011 got off to a rousing start in Enumclaw, Washington, last night.  As clouds rolled through the fairgrounds of the festival, the stunning beauty of a small town that sits between Seattle and the lady Mt. Rainier was accentuated.  But, there would be no rain on this night…

The spirit that was running through the crowd was palpable as Austrailian speaker/actor Nick Vujicic stirred the people with a powerful talk about their lives and futures.  By the time the Newsboys hit the stage, you knew that you were in for a stirring opening night.

The surprise of the night came when the Newsboys launched into the Northwest sunset sky and took flight over the screaming and fist pumping worshipers.  The slogan on the stage had never been more appropriate:  CREATION 2011 IN WORSHIP OF OUR CREATOR.

Here’s a look-in to the spectacular opener, highlighted by Chris Tomlin.  Tonight, we look forward to Red, Tenth Avenue North and Toby Mac.  We will also be interviewing Hawk Nelson…

Much more coverage to come… stay tuned…
