Sunday Recap: August 26th 2018

It was a bittersweet day.  We said goodbye (for now) to two wonderful volunteers.  A young woman moving to San Diego for school and a young man moving to China for work.  

Working with volunteer teams is such a joy.  Seeing people grow and mature musically and spiritually is a powerful thing to witness.  Always pour into your volunteers and remember to honor and celebrate them when you can.  

This weekend quite a few of our team members were unavailable.  We had to get a little creative with some arrangements since we were missing a keys player and electric guitar.  But often times limitations yield unexpected creative results.  


At Your Name - Phil Wickham

Normally a male lead song, this one sounds great with a female lead in the key of D

Rising Sun - All Sons & Daughters

We've had electric guitar and keys play the intro riff.  This week we tried a violin.  It turned out great!  Wonderful harmonies on this one.  

Tremble - Mosaic MSC

Our church is really connecting with this one.  Such powerful lyrics.  The vocal range is pretty challenging but I've found the key of D works well for a male vocal.  It also puts the verses and lower choruses in a good range for a female.  

The Electronic Drum patches were pulled from a Native Instruments sample bundle, edited in Logic Pro X, and imported into an SPD-SX

Give Me Jesus - Bethel Music

This full song is great but I'll of lead only the chorus portion.  Thematically it worked great as a sort of tag to "Tremble" 

Throne Of Grace - Calvary Monterey Music

This is an original song by our team at Calvary Monterey.  We're working on a studio version to be released as a single soon! 


After two songs I again greeted our church family.  I simply read Psalm 29, all 11 verses and moved into our third song without any commentary.  

The Word of God is so powerful and life-giving.  I'll often share two or three verses but reading a longer passage was very refreshing.  


Our lead Pastor Nate Holdridge continued our series on the Life of David called God-Hearted.
