This Sunday at Graystone may be our best WORSHIP SERVICE ev-ver. You may have heard me say that before, but I really do think it will be. I cannot tell you too much about the service, or Heath will kill me. He loves to create the “element of surprise”. So, there may or may not be several surprises. Jennifer, on the other hand, always wants my sermons to be FUNNY. Everybody seems to enjoy different things about the service or Graystone Church in general. Which I am glad that people, lots of people, do love things about Graystone. BTW, we are starting a new series on October 17 (Graystone’s 6th Birthday…we are planning a big party) called I Love My Church.
What do you love about Graystone Church?
It will be a great series to celebrate all that GOD has done. On October 17, I will be sharing “6 Things I Love about Graystone Church” (6 things because it is our 6th birthday). I will probably read several of your answers/comments as well…if I get any. We will also be rolling out a brand new Graystone T-shirt. Now, we have printed up dozens of T-shirts in the past, but I think this will be the best one YET. Seriously. We turned the T-shirt selection over to the people who complain the most about our T-shirts and asked them to pick out a good fitting, quality T-shirt. And they did. Now, this does not open the door for EVERYONE to start complaining about stuff, but we do accept good, honest feedback.
Oh, where was I? This is turning into a Seinfeld post about nothing. Not really, I am communicating A LOT in my nothing and probably more than Heath would want me to. Oh, this Sunday. I can’t tell you much, but it will be an incredible service. It is the FINALE to the Shattered Dreams series. BTW, I really enjoyed Jim’s message last week. It’s amazing how he always works history and missions into his messages.
Back to the point of this post…if you like music, then this is the service for you. We are assembling an extremely talented group of musicians and vocalists. I would say there will be more band members on stage than EV-VER, except for the Children’s Christmas Program, which is December 19, 2010. And I will let you know that Brunson Jamal Quattlebaum is making his singing debut (sorry Heath), and he will not be singing a song from the Gaither Vocal Band. Also, a couple of our favorite band members from Echoing Angels will be rocking the house (sorry Heath). And I’m pretty sure Kyle From “Kyle and the Band”, Ryan Brooks, Candace, Jordan, and…(Heath is going to kill me). On a related topic, I will not be playing the rain stick. Although, it is my #1 musical instrument.
Also, get to Graystone early, because I’m pretty sure the auditorium doors are closing when the countdown to the service hits 0:00 at 9:15 and 11:00. You do NOT want to be watching the opening song on the flats screens above the coffee bar or in the cry room. And as always (a Steve Sexton phrase), this is a great service to invite your friends and family.
Expecting God to do GREAT THINGS on Sunday!
