Go Deeper – New Schedule

Hey everyone,

Hope you are doing well. First of all let me say thanks again to all of you. Your prayers and care you have shown us with the birth of Ethan are greatly appreciated – last night he actually slept 6 hours straight! I’ll chalk that up to some of y’all’s great home cookin’!

Mom and the rest of the family are doing great. I can’t wait to introduce Ethan to you personally.

Tonight we won’t have our regular rehearsals due to FirstSTEP – the prayer time at the schools. We will have Praise Band rehearsal from 6:30 – 8:00 then the Worship Development Team will meet at 8:00 in the Worship Center for a brief discussion about Opening Day. There will be no Praise Team rehearsal tonight and no Praise Team this Sunday. I would like for the Instrumental Ensemble to join us this Sunday AM.

This Weekend we begin our NEW SUNDAY AM SCHEDULE! I’m excited about what this schedule means. We will now have the time to not only prepare musically and technically, but together we will have a bit of time for fellowship and to ‘Turn the Corner’ as we prepare together spiritually to lead the congregation in worship.

This weekend the CHOIR will be singing, “COVER THE EARTH” – it’s a song we’ve done in the past and it won’t take us long to dust it off and make it ready. So be on time at the new time and ready to sing! I’ve included a link to the song COVER THE EARTH below. You’ll be able to download the mp3 or just stream it and listen online. It’s about 5mb so depending on your connection speed it may take a bit to download.

One other logistical thing – At www.fbcowasso.org you can now click FBCO RESOURCES – then select Christian Arts Ministry. Under that heading you will find several categories – under Order of Service & Support Files you will find the order of service for this week and in the other categories you will find the music charts that go along with the songs in the Order of Service. Mostly this is Praise Band music, but some of these charts include Instrumental Ensemble music and ALL of them include VOCALS – hopefully this can be a resource for us all in the coming days!

Here are the CALL TIMES for this SUNDAY AM – Remember, ON = EARLY | EARLY = READY and from 8:30 – 8:50 we’ll clear the platform and all meet in Fellowship Hall for a light, continental style breakfast and for last minute instructions, prayer & consecration. I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Love y’all, God Bless,


Notes to Notice

Making Contact

We all know someone who has been involved in CAM in the past, but has taken some time away – perhaps for summer vacations or to serve in another area of ministry. This week, take a look around and notice who’s here and who’s not. Then in the next several weeks begin inviting them back to CAM. We’ve all been given gifts, talents and resources – let’s fulfill our calling in the area of ministry God has given us to serve and let’s encourage our friends and family to do the same!

Opening Day – Character Auditions

It’s coming faster than we think; the beginning of a new school year, a new semester and a new season for everyone involved in CAM. Wednesday, August 30th at 6:30pm we’ll unveil plans for the new semester, including Christmas, meet new CAM leadership, introduce ourselves to new CAM members and discover what it means to be involved this season in CAM. Bring someone with you and let’s make this the best season in the life of our church yet!

FarPoint Weekend

Every week in churches everywhere volunteers come together to plan, prepare, and present the gospel in a way that is clear, creative, concise and compelling. These are the volunteers who make our services work. theFarPoint Weekend is a time of encouragement and equipping specifically designed with YOU in mind!

September 15th & 16th churches from all over the metro will come to FBCO to discover how we do what we do! The Christian Arts Ministry of FBCO will lead them in a time of encouragement and equipping. Plan to now to impact leaders from across Green Country by leading out this year at FarPoint Weekend!

For more details visit, www.thefarpoint.org – Registration online is for people OUTSIDE FBCO – we’ll begin FBOC registration in August. Your only cost will be $10…for the concert, Friday night & lunch on Saturday.

Praise Team Auditions

No really – I’m going to announce new Praise Teams…I promise… J The New Praise Teams will begin this SEPTEMBER. Every one who auditioned for Praise Teams did a great job! Thanks for trying out! Be watching here in the weeks to come for details what Praise Teams this fall will look like!
