What's up Song Talkers! What a service we had on Sunday! It was a blessed time to see Jesus worshipped, a new pastor installed, people getting saved and joining in our fellowship at SBC! It was a glorious morning!
Well, it's summertime. And our practice for the last few years has been to give the choir and orchestra a few weeks off in the summer to just relax, rejuvenate, and recruit! For those of you in the 11:00 service nothing changes, but for the 9:30 people, this simply means we will be led a little differently than usual for a bit. Fresh change of pace. This begins this week and will last through the first Sunday in August. Ryan and I are excited to be leading together in both services and can't wait to worship with you all this Sunday. So come ready to engage the Lord like you do every week and experience the wonder of our God!
This gives me the chance to introduce our 9:30 crowd to Ryan Ward, our contemporary worship leader. Ryan has been involved at Second for several years as an Student Ministry assistant, worship leader, and just an all-around good guy. Ryan has a deep passion for worship ministry and has been an excellent addition to our team in the worship office. I appreciate his passion for worship leading, his sincere optimism and forward thinking attitude. Worship ministry can be a tough gig. I've often said that it is the most scrutinized and criticized position in the church. Having a positive attitude and a teachable spirit are good tools to have in a worship leaders tool belt, and Ryan certainly does. He is also going to be writing Song Talks for me the next two weeks so make sure you check it out!
See you on Sunday church!
