Pastor Kris is forming, or more aptly reforming, a Worship and Music Ministry. At the initial meeting this week, the Prayers of Intercession were discussed. Currently the petitions come from a generic worship support and are not specific to a time or place. Pr. Kris would like the prayers to have more relevancy to CGS and/or concerns of the greater San Jose community/ country/ world. It is hoped that this could be achieved by having the petitions written and possibly presented by members. To that end I am writing to ask you if you would be open to consider participation in this new endeavor.
1. Would you be willing to compose the petitions ( 3 or 4) every few weeks? ( Pr. Kris will probably be adding one as well).
2. Would you be willing to offer the petitions in service? Currently, the deacons lead the petitions and could continue that regardless of where the prayer originates. If you serve as a deacon already, would you be willing to add this component to your services?
3. Would you be willing to attend an information/ training session with Pastor Kris? He has held Tuesday May 9th 6:30pm- 7:30pm and Wednesday May 10th from 1pm to 2pm as two options for those to choose from. This is for anyone who interested in learning more about creating the Prayers of Intercession.
And last but not least, the goal of the Worship and Music Ministry is to create services that offer a variety of worship experiences each Sunday that will give opportunity for us all to strength our relationship to God. Feedback is important. If there is something about worship that you love or are not so thrilled about, please let us know. Or if you would like to talk about the worship service in general, do not hesitate to speak to any one of the ministry members.
I/ we look forward to talking to or hearing from you all.
