Blended Worship New Service: start date 01/08/17 This service was created to ease the space problem in our original 1st and 2nd (now 1st & 3rd) services. Both the Heritage and Praise service began to reach capacity - since starting this service we have pushed up to 85 in attendance, but our growth has not stopped. Our numbers continue to max out building capacity at the moment. 378 This video I was supposed to be leading with the singers, but my accompanist called in sick at the last minute. So, I'm at the piano leading a service I was supposed to be standing up leading. Also, last minute changes to songs because of her absence forced us to change out books and all. This can happen - being able to think quick and on my feet running with three weekend services is always necessary.

We have since added to the bell choir and the membership changes year to year and sometimes between Fall and Spring. This is a very transient community at A & M College Station.
Pentecost Sunday : Heritage Singers Gracious Spirit Dwell With Me Heritage Singers - 1/2 of the Choir presents this simple but elegant tune in our morning Heritage Service. Traditional.
Praise Service. March 2013 Contemporary Worship - I was at the piano I was leading at the Piano. Pastor prefers for me to have others lead worship - so I can focus on leading the band and music flow. Finding good singers who can lead, or be taught to lead is not always easy - but God always brings people to the team. As soon as we lose members, we gain new members.
Praise Service - April 6 I got to wake up and find that my two song leaders for the late service were both not feeling well and could not be here. So, instead of playing the piano that day - and leading from the piano, I led the service - by myself. This was also a turning point for our ministry. As we welcomed our new youth director a few weeks from this date - our music program itself was starting to take off. Choir was growing, bells, praise team, orchestra and tech team. During this time of growth, I have transitioned to leading the back of house process for our praise service while having a fully developed praise team and leaders to lead in the front. Something that has been very fun for me. I also transitioned into creating weekly video announcements and then other video projects since our youth guy helps me by song leading in the praise service.
EASTER 2016 Our Heritage Service. Brass, Strings, Choir, Piano and Organ. Blended Worship is without a doubt my favorite style. The best of the best. Something for every one, every age. It's intergenerational.
