Saturday’s service was a blast! Our Student Ministries took over the service with the High School worship band leading worship and Jared Riley, our High School Pastor, speaking. Luis Acosta has been leading our High School worship for the past 6 months, and he has worked very hard to build a team of students who are solid musicians and becoming devoted worshippers. It was so cool to see the fruit of his hard work as the team of students backed him. They all led us into a sweet time of praising God and worshipping Jesus.
Sunday’s service was a bit rough. We seemed to have every possible technical challenge hit us. In-ears mixes seemed to be impossible to find, guitar electronics failed mid-set, media projection was hit and miss, riffs and parts just didn’t lock. It seemed that from the beginning of rehearsal all the way through both services it was a struggle. I’m glad days like this are few and far between, but wrestling through them is never fun. I guess it felt like today it was difficult to get out of the way because we were tripped up by weird stuff distracting us as a team. Fortunately, God is WAY BIGGER than a difficult day, and it was good to know He was in control of connecting with people’s hearts.
