I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:19 NKJV)|

2015 State of The Orchestra
Wow it's hard to believe we haven't had a rehearsal in over a month! I have
missed you all and am happy to get back into the swing of things. I hope you had
a restful holiday season. I want let you all know what is happening orchestra-wise
in the coming months and just give you a brief outlook on the first part of our year.
Starting THIS Sunday 1/11/15 we will be having our services in the multipurpose auditorium. Because of this change our new meeting time for the next 4-5
months will be 7:00am on stage in the MP. We will have only 1 sound check for
the day and will NOT have a sound check between the 8:00am and 9:30am
services. Yes I know it's early. Yes I know it’s different. We are going to try and
make everything be as smooth as possible. There will be spots for our cases and
music in the MP. We will be meeting over there at 7:00pm tonight to work out the
kinks and get things set up for Sunday.
As far as the rest of the year goes, the orchestra will be doing our normal
Sunday morning services and the Big Band will play on select Sunday evenings.
I would like to once again have a Big Band concert sometime in the spring. I don't
know yet about Easter or Memorial Day services. I think those will depend on the
remodels of both the worship center and ODC.
As we go through these times of change we must remember what our ministry is
about: Serving the Lord and reaching others for His glory. It's not about us
looking cool on the internet playing our instruments. It’s not about sitting first
chair. It’s not about playing the melody. It’s about serving the Lord and doing
your absolute BEST FOR HIM! We aren't doing this for our personal glory, we are
doing it for God! These next few months are going to be about making the
sacrifice for the work of the Lord.
I love you all and I believe in my heart there is not a more committed group of
musicians anywhere on this Earth. God has great things planned for us this year
and I am so excited to be a part of it and see how He works in the lives of us and
uses our ministry for Him.
