Thursday’s Thoughts from Will 11.03.2022

If you were here last night, you heard that we are having to push Christmas at Ivy Creek till the last weekend in January. If you were not, let me be the first to tell you that due to construction delays, we will have to move our presentations to Saturday and Sunday nights, January 28-29. While I realize this not what we wanted, God is not surprised by this information and we’re going to do our best to keep plugging along working on Christmas and general worship service music in our rehearsals. With the changes, our rehearsal schedule will be altered somewhat to fit our new tentative schedule. Please make note of these changes as the are numerous and make sure you read your emails and newsletters as things could change as we progress.

On a separate note, I appreciate your continuing to be present for rehearsals because we will not simply review old music the whole time, but work on new music for when we finally get into the sanctuary (possibly mid-December) until we have CIC late January.
