Wow, it has been busy. Our family returned from 4 days of vacation on Friday and I am playing catch-up.
Our Senior Pastor, Ty Harrison, formally introduced Jay Holderfield to the 1st Hillsville Congregation yesterday as the Worship Leader for Out Of The Box Worship Center. Not that Jay needed any introduction, he has been playing with the SouledOut Band for our Sunday Night Live Service under the direction of Cindy Jackson for some time now. However, it was done to make sure everyone knows what is happening at the new worship site and this way, everyone can celebrate God’s work together.
We are currently waiting on the architectural drawings for the renovations to be completed at OOTB Worship Center. As soon as we receive those we will acquire three bids for the work that is to be done.
Jeff Holderfield will be heading up the Sound and Multi-Media for the New worship site. Jeff, Jay, and I are working on pricing for the new equipment that will be purchased in the near future.
The Launch Team will meet again soon to plan details for our first “Taste and See” event on October 10th. Details will be out soon.
Cindy Jackson and I met one week ago to discuss adding people to the SouledOut Band. This week at SNL God blessed us with 5 new people who practiced with the band and something awesome happened. There was no plan for those who practiced to take part in the service but they worked so well together that they all played for the service and it was electrifying, for a lack of better words. The band never sounded better and it is unimaginable that folks could practice together for a couple of house and sound that great. It is a God Thing!
We are hearing from new people every week who are interested in being a part of this new work and we are excited. God is at work and doing awesome things in Carroll County. We are blessed to be a part of what God is doing.
