I don’t know how many of the people who read this blog live close enough to Northern Virginia to come to this, but I wanted to share this just in case…
Next weekend at my church we’re going to be having a “weekend of worship”.
First, on Friday, March 2nd and Saturday, March 3rd, in our Main Sanctuary, we will be having two evenings of extended worship and praise while we record a live congregational worship CD. We’ll sing the same songs both nights. We’ll start at 8:00pm and would love to have you. Before God leads us out of our building, we want to capture a sense of corporate, Jesus-exalting worship in that space.
Secondly, on Saturday, March 3rd, from 9:00am – noon, we’ll be offering a FREE worship team/musician workshop for instrumentalists, vocalists, and organists. You’ll get practical demonstration of how to play together as a team, rehearse, arrange, and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Special guests include Carl Albrecht (drummer for Paul Baloche and Integrity Music), Russell Crain (professional electric guitarist and worship leader from L.A.) and Luke Moesley (studio pianist from Nashville). I will host this morning workshop with other musicians from The Falls Church family joining us too. We want to demonstrate what to do, what not to do, and how to do it. I’d love for all of you to come to this if you’re able!
I especially want organists to know they’re welcome to come to all of us – but particularly the Saturday morning workshop. Simon Dixon, our worship director and organist, will be demonstrating how he plays organ in a contemporary worship context.
So, if you’re able, please come next Friday and Saturday nights (the 2nd and 3rd) at 8:00pm for two nights of worship. And come on Saturday morning (the 3rd) for a fun, free, brief workshop from some really good musicians on how we can all grow.
