The Band and Vocal Team will continue Wednesday rehearsals on April 11th at 7:00pm, and April 18th at 7:30pm. There will be no rehearsal on Wednesday, April 25th.
The Worship Choir will be taking a few weeks off, and will resume rehearsals on Wednesday, May 2nd at 7:30pm.
Last month I enabled a service thru Planning Center Online call Rehearsal Mix. I have noticed that several of our Worship Band members have been taking advantage of the tracks for their instrument…THANKS FOR USING THIS! After using Rehearsal Mix for a month, I’ve come to realize that some of the vocal tracks are not extremely helpful (since they only enhance the parts sung by the ‘backup singers’).
I have done some more research and found another online service called PraiseVocals.com. Praisevocals.com is designed to serve primarily vocalists. What makes them unique from any other resource is that they provide professionally performed and recorded vocal harmony rehearsal tracks of the melody, tenor and alto parts of the most popular and most recent worship songs. They have recorded each vocal segment of any given song one time, meaning that if a song has 3 verses, 4 choruses and a bridge, they record the vocal harmonies on only 1 of the verses, 1 of the choruses and the bridge. They have also taken great care NOT to ‘stylize’ the vocal performance, so you can really focus on your part.
So for all you vocalists, in the future I will including the PraiseVocal.com rehearsal track for your part (if it’s available).

SCRIPTURE FOR THIS WEEK…
Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand
The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a desolate place by themselves. Now many saw them going and recognized them, and they ran there on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them. When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things. And when it grew late, his disciples came to him and said, “This is a desolate place, and the hour is now late. Send them away to go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.” But he answered them, “You give them something to eat.” And they said to him, “Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give it to them to eat?” And he said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.” And when they had found out, they said, “Five, and two fish.” Then he commanded them all to sit down in groups on the green grass. So they sat down in groups, by hundreds and by fifties. And taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven and said a blessing and broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the people. And he divided the two fish among them all. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of broken pieces and of the fish. And those who ate the loaves were five thousand men.
– Mark 6:30-44
