Worship 2020 for MyChoir Page

Message from LLG

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” - Ephesians 3:20-21


Good afternoon:

What an amazing worship celebration this morning! Thank you for the role you played in leading our church family to the throne. It is exciting to see God moving in the hearts of so many people, as well as hearing Dr. Brooks as he articulates God’s vision for our church. Great days are ahead!

As we move into May and June I want to encourage you to be faithful in your “Ministry of Presence.” I understand schedules become very hectic this time of year (recitals, graduations, vacations, etc.), but if we’re not careful our attendance on Sundays and Wednesdays can take second (or third…or fourth) priority. This is especially true since we’ve combined the services. I’ve heard several people say, “With so many singing you don’t need me.” Nothing could be further from reality. For example, although the choir loft appeared to be full this morning, we actually had our lowest attendance of 2016.That means that over 120 choir members were absent. Obviously, we can do better!

As summer schedules start to take shape I’m asking that everyone commit to be in the loft when in town. It makes a huge difference and you are needed!


We will be celebrating “LET FREEDOM RING” on Sunday morning, July 3, in the morning worship service. Because this is a holiday weekend, to quote Uncle Sam: “WE NEED YOU!” This will be a wonderful time of worship as we focus on the freedom we have in this great country, and more importantly, the freedom we through Christ. In addition to a great day of music, Dr. Brooks will be preaching a message entitled, “The Truth Shall Set You Free.” We are beginning commitments for LFR today, so take a moment and click the link below to confirm you will be in the loft for this presentation.


We will be leveraging LFR as an opportunity to include singers interested in checking out our worship ministry. If you know someone who might enjoy singing in this presentation, encourage them to join us even if they aren’t a current member of the choir.  We will rehearse LFR music on the following nights:

·         Wednesday, June 1 – 6 PM

·         Wednesday, June 8 – 6 PM

·         Wednesday, June 15 – 6 PM

·         Wednesday, June 22 – 6 PM

·         Wednesday, June 29 – 6 PM

Again, please be in your place on Sundays and Wednesdays during the upcoming summer months…and plan on joining us for LFR. We need you!

Pursuing the Call!
