Romans 15:5
Now may the God Who gives the power of patient endurance and Who supplies encouragement, grant you to live in such mutual harmony and such full sympathy with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus.

This Week…
Hello Worshippers, thank you all again for a blessed time of worship. I really do appreciate the time you each devote to learning the music we present for our fellowship to worship our Lord.

Pastor John is preaching this week so we thought we’d change things up a bit. We have a full service as well. We have an additional speaker (Mike Rider) and the dedication of Matthew Walters, Mark and Dawn’s son. We are opting to slightly modify the service order. Have a look bellow at the modified order.

I also have compiled a CD of the top forty something songs to listen and learn for worship. I am hoping it might help us begin to internalize the music we worship to. Because of the number of songs I have the MP3’s on a data CD ROM. You should be able to take the audio files from that CD ROM and transfer them to your MP3 player or burn them to a CD using iTunes. If you’re not sure what any of those terms I just mentioned mean, we can make other arrangements to get you an audio CD. Let me know.

Easter Sunday…
We are having a rehearsal this Friday evening for all those who can attend. We will be going over the music for Easter Sunday. It will be for an hour 6pm-7pm. The Easter music is posted under the Worship section of the www.ministrylounge.com site. It is dated for Easter Sunday. There are new songs, so please have a good listen. We are also scheduling a final Easter rehearsal for Friday April the 22nd from 6pm-7pm. It would be great to finalize all the music before Sunday’s Easter service. Any questions please feel free to call my office.

Hannaford Live Worship CD Project…
The listening CD will be going out at the end of next week on the 22nd of April. We will have two weeks to listen and choose (by e-mail) the songs which we’d like to select for the actual live CD recording. Let us continue to be in prayer during this entire project and to continue to keep our focus on the purpose for the project… God’s glory! You still have time to get in your original songs, ideas, lyrics or music. See me or give me a call. My office is open to anyone who needs to still record their song idea.

Tech Announcement…
We will be having a Tech Night May 19th, from 7-8pm. I will be preparing a flyer for the bulletin and an announcement a few Sunday mornings before the event. If you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know by calling my office.

Thursday, May 19th, 7-8pm
Tech Night: An evening exploring technology in worship. Discussing and showing what the Tech Ministry is all about. Attendees will be shown how the elements of the  Tech Ministry are used. Example: How audio impacts a worship service. How lighting and the use of video work together in Worship. Also how programs like MediaShout  are used in the context of a worship message and worship. If you have ever been curious about the Tech Ministry (how a service all comes together) now is your chance to experience it all first hand. For more info call: 406-449-2273 ex 25
