Winter 2015 News
We are so thankful for each one of you and your dedication to WOL and worshipping the Lord.
We have several changes to announce: firstly, due to a high volume of waste and unused charts, we will no longer be printing charts for worship services. Please print your own music or use a tablet if you need charts available for rehearsals and services. Secondly, in order to simplify we will no longer be differentiating between “call time” and “ready to play” in our reminder texts. Please note that from now on “call time” and “ready to play” both mean the time at which you are expected to be on stage with your instrument and equipment set and ready for rehearsal. Thirdly, SHIFT phase 2 is upon us. Beginning this weekend (Feb 7th-8th), band members on the East Ave. campus MUST park cars in lot B before rehearsal. There can be no exceptions to this as we enter the next phase of construction and are completely losing the parking lot below the Worship Center. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in serving the Water of Life community off the stage.When we began the SHIFT campaign, we introduced a hospitality ministry for the East Ave. campus worship teams on Sunday mornings. We have awesome volunteers who provide breakfast following first service worship, and it’s a great time of fellowship for us as a team. For a while now Soul Celebration has been doing a brief devotional on the 3rd Sunday of each month during breakfast in Seminar I. If any musicians in Club56, Activate, Video Café, and the Worship Center would like to join them, Soul would love to have you.
Finally, and most importantly, our hearts are heavy with the passing of Matt Garcia this past weekend. Matt started to play bass for Water of Life in 2001, and he became family to many of us on staff and many of you on the team. He will be greatly missed but we know we will see him again one day playing his instrument with all the angels in heaven!!
