A Brand New Experience

Today, we had a minor crisis at church. My mom, the piano player, got sick, and was unable to come to church. We have a backup piano player, who isn't always comfortable playing, especially if its on short notice. So...Scott and the Pastor decided to try out something new today.
Scott has written a church music program with the help of a couple of friends, and today was our trial run. We have been talking about introducing this program to our church on Thursday nights. Scott would run the sound, and I would lead the praise and worship. Well...we never quite got it up and running, but today we did!

It was AWESOME. Scott's program rocks...and any of you who need music in your you go. Its not completely perfected, but it is well on its way. We didn't even get a chance to do much practicing. (We used our choir practice hour, and got the choir to back me up today.) I think we stunned our church. They didn't know it was possible to have a rockin' church service with canned music!

I led...for the VERY first time in our main service. Bro. Dave was on the drums and Bro. Donnie on the bass. The choir stood behind me and backed me up. I was so proud of them! And of Scott....he is a genius...and I am NOT kidding you. The guy can dream up the best of programs...and make them work!

Anyway...our service went REALLY REALLY well...and I was so proud of everyone involved. God has been so good to our church...and I am truly thankful.

Just wanted to share my joy. :)
Love to you all.

Hi, Kendra!
Yes, I know you and I've been to your church before! :) I used to attend Bro. Grisham's church in Detroit until I got married in July 2004. I now attend my husband's church, Greater Grace Temple, where he's a musician. I heard about your site recently from someone at Bro. Grisham's when we were visting recently, and just now had the opportunity to visit! :) We currently live in Westland, but are relocating to Orange County, California within the next two weeks. :)

Sister Kendra,
Wow that program sounds pretty awesome. Jacob was telling me about it. I am sure that you did a great job leading song service. You have an awesome voice.

Love ya,

I'm so happy to hear MANY reports that the music went well in my absence (piano-playing mom). I can't tell you how liberating it feels to know that I'm replaceable; and anyone who knows me,personally, knows I'm telling the truth! You go girl! And Scott, thank you, thank you, thank you!
