Thursday’s Thoughts from Will 08.27.2020

What a JOY it was to have the choir back in rehearsal last night. For those of you that couldn’t make it, please know that we missed you all terribly. I just received the recording of The Majesty and Glory of Your Name this morning. For not having a chance to really clean it up, it sounded really nice. It’ll be such an awesome addition to our worship services next weekend when we study Psalm 8.

Our next choir rehearsal will be in two weeks, September 9th from 7-8:15. We will follow a similar format and record 1-2 songs for use in worship. We’ll probably sing fewer songs and do some actual rehearsing starting in this rehearsal. Then, the current plan is to have another rehearsal two weeks after that on September 23rd. I hope you’ll be able to join us these dates!

I mentioned last night that if trends continue to hold with COVID cases, we should be ready to divide the choir up and start using teams beginning October 11th. I’ll firm up plans, but then we’ll start weekly rehearsals for the choir group that is singing that Sunday. More on this later! As always, this could all change, so stay tuned!

Orchestra, it’s been such a joy to have you all playing for us each week. We’re still going to forgo separate rehearsals until at least October when we’ll be accompanying the choir. Stay tuned for more info!

I’m sure some of you are wondering about our Christmas plans this year. Here’s what I can tell you: WHATEVER we do, it WILL be the first weekend of December (4-6). Now I’m not sure what it’s going to look like, but I’m hoping to have a solution/plan by the beginning of October so we have adequate time to plan and rehearse. Just know that we may have to schedule some extra rehearsals in October and November to pull something off, but I’ll get you those dates ASAP.
