Happy Monday everyone! Yesterday we started a new series at RVC which means 1) new themes 2) new graphic elements and 3) new music!
The series is called Through The Storms of Life and adresses the way we react to the hard times we all face in our lives. Specifically, we’re discussing prayer and it’s place in our day to day lives. We’ll be looking at a few different passages over six weeks and providing opportunities for our congregation to pray for and with eachother.
Here’s the set we used to launch the series:
-You Came To Give Life (Luke Mundy)
-Everlasting God (Brenton Brown)
-Your Love Never Fails (Chris Quilla)
-Enough (Chris Tomlin)
-You Never Let Go (Matt Redman)
-Jesus Lord of Heaven (Phil Wickham)
I took the entire week after Easter off (well… off from my day job… I still did church stuff, but it was all pretty relaxed) so I felt a bit underprepared. Add to that the fact that Your Love Never Fails and You Never Let Go were new and that You Came To Give Life is only 1 week old and things were a little shakey musically. We pulled it together, but things just weren’t happening at the level I was hoping for. Really, this just confirms (once again) the value of rehearsal. The one hour practice/setup/soundcheck prior to service time just doesn’t cut it!
So… I may have to get creative about practice time. Any suggestions? I’d especially love to hear from others leading in a mobile church with limited/no access to a sound system or rehearsal space during the week.
