While the old saying remains true that "many hands make light the load," in the case of a Worship Service, the resulting "lighter load" on one requires a higher level of prior coordination between the new system of responsible leaders. Things that were taken for granted under the old system must be identified and accountable coordination set up for each to be carefully cared for. In other words, as many "what if's" need to be identified so the "then do that's" can be plotted into a time saving procedure.
Chair Don Weaver, a former District Superintendent in the Buffalo District and pastor of a large congregation before retirement, has years of experience in this type of planning and organizing, as do pastor Doug and pastor Greg. As a team, they are actually working ahead of schedule by supporting one another and helping to identify and eliminate potential stumbling blocks before they occur and avoid the causes of future delays. It is Dr. Weaver's goal to have the plan of organization in place to be presented to the Trustee Board on April 14th. The Worship Committee's Leadership Team is confident that the Board will find the system to be well put together, very workable, and lending itself to a high level of success.
Each step along the way, the Leadership Team is weaving a thread of vibrant and spiritual worship throughout the plan that they are confident will be felt and experienced by all worshipers present for this Season's religious program of worship, liturgy, prayers, guest speakers, and guest musicians and vocalists. As in prior years, this vibrant worship will then carry us into a joyful time of Fellowship and Refreshment where friends enjoy each other and strangers become new friends. Running ahead of schedule is inspiring the team to enthusiastically continue its work to completion. The team and entire committee will be more than ready for the kickoff Service on July 1st at the Blue Dock. Plan to invite a friend--kickoff is a great lakeside service!
