This was week two of our series on creating a revolutionary heart of service in each attender of Grace. Leading up to our addition of a third service beginning Dec. 21, we're "advertising" opportunities to serve within ministries that will be impacted by this additional service time. This was my day to promote the Weekend Service Team at Grace. Our WST consists of our lighting, video, audio, stage and worship team. If you would like to check out one of these teams, visit our volunteer page here.
We had a stripped down time of worship this week. With the absence of Thunderfoot (away on a much deserved vacation), we decided to jump on this chance to "explore the space" with an acoustic set. Great job to Sam, Gary and Jimmy-Luv for flexing their musical muscle. It can be quite a challenge to change it up and rethink tunes that you're used to playing a certain way. Great job to Meredith and Brian who led with me on vocals...they truly helped give the music some much needed definition and depth.
This week we "rolled out" the song True Love by Phil Wickham. I closed out the service with this tune solo on the acoustic. I followed Phil's instructions and lowered my tuning...only I lowered it even more than he did. I was worried a string was going to pop off the old Breedlove. Seriously one of the best songs right now. Powerful lyrics and a fantastic melody. Love it.
