Monroe Residents Rock with Skillet


Grammy Award Nominee quartet band, Skillet, recently released their newest album Comatose. Skillet has been performing their way throughout the U.S. on their 2009 Spring Tour. On May 10th Skillet made an appearance in Monroe, LA, which made convenient for our Monroe residents to get to attend the concert!

The Monroe residents and staff were so excited to see Skillet perform live at the Assembly of God Church in Monroe, LA. The residents had so much fun at the concert!

Here is what some of the girls had to say:

Hannah said, “For the first time in my life I sang, danced, laughed, and head-banged. I was able to act like a child while worshipping God, and I did not care what anyone thought of me.”

Angel said, “It was awesome to see the dynamic worship of a generation of radical rockers. I really appreciated the opportunity to experience a type of worship I had never been exposed to.”

Amanda said, “I used to listen to secular heavy metal rock music and was always under the impression that there was no room in a Christian lifestyle for this style of music. But to come here and hear the lyrics that spoke truth really encouraged me. I don’t have to give up my favorite music to be a Christian.”

Krystal said, “At the concert, I realized that I could have fun without any substance to help me. I had an absolute blast!”
