Yes, we’re still here!!

Sorry for the delay in posts, folks. Been a busy summer, to say the least!! We’ve had at least one ConnXions musician/engineer out virtually every week for the past month, so we’ve been busy making sure all of our bases are covered. Thankfully, August should be a bit easier….

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped out throughout the summer. Chuck Land, our previous worship leader, was gracious enough to come back and fill-in for a weekend in June. Thanks to the members of the ConnXions Praise Band – Eric, Kendra, Jeremy, Steve, Kim, Emaline, and Nick for picking up any slack that may have been left by an absence. We are so very thankful to have these individuals in our group!

A few announcements are also a bit late in being made, but here goes….

First off, after a long summer of looking and trying out several individuals, we now have a weekly drummer in place!! Shawn Kennedy joined the ConnXions team this past July, and has quickly established his place in the group. If you have not already, be sure to introduce yourself to Shawn during the next service!

Secondly, I would also like to welcome Cathy Newman as our newest vocal addition. Cathy came across Mt. Washington Presbyterian (and the ConnXions service) after seeing a sign out front. Since her initial attendance, she has been present each weekend, and has expressed her desire to sing with the Praise Band. She made her debut this past week, and did a wonderful job!

Starting next week, we will begin profiling each member of the ConnXions team, so that everyone can become more acquainted with the group. I will also begin posting regularly once again, offering different thoughts, insights, and experiences with both worship and music.

We invite you to bookmark this site and check back often, as we will begin updating it on at least a weekly basis (with some bonus posts throughout the week).

Thanks, everyone!!
Kyle Boreing
ConnXions Worship Leader

Fill-in ConnXions band this week

In a rare case of massive scheduling conflicts, several ConnXions band members will be out ON THE SAME DAY!! Kyle will be attending his 10 year high school class reunion, at which Kevin will also be serving as a DJ. Eric will also be out on the same day. Jeremy will still be there, as will Kendra. To fill in the gaps, our previous worship leader, Chuck Land, has graciously volunteered to fill in for this Saturday, June 4th. Joining Chuck will be several other familiar faces: Eric & Christina Hamilton and Mike Land.

A special thanks to Chuck, Christina, Eric, and Mike for filling in this week!!
