A review of our two Sunday AM Worship Celebrations at Spring Arbor Free Methodist Church, from the perspective of the Worship Arts Pastor (that’s me):
— First service always seems a bit empty when the Choir & Orchestra are off, but having the handbells up there made a delightful difference. I am continually amazed that handbells actually work. I mean, if someone said to you “ding here, and here, but NOT here”, that would be tough. At least for me.
— It’s good to have the Senior Pastor back after his brief missions trip. He seems taller. Strange.
— Intern David did a fine job leading Worship in 2nd service. He saw it as his “final exam” for his Worship Arts internship. I saw it as him leading our church into the presence of the Lord. But if I had to give a grade, it would be an A. It was cool to be able to play keys in the background.
— I’m glad to be on Pastor/Spouse retreat with Emily (even though I have the flu), but I will miss the fact that we won’t have Worship Design today. Which reminds me: I should probably get some songs for next week in. Stat. Thanks to Suzanna for keeping packets full and rosters rosting.
