Getting Ready For The New Service

  • I can’t believe it, but our launch date for the new service is upon us! Here’s the schedule we’re looking at: On September 7, we’ll have a volunteer orientation after church. We’ll feed everybody, see where they want to plug in, and show them what to do. On September 14, we’ll have a “dress rehearsal” type service in the gym. We’ll do a full worship set, Dr. Baxter will preach, etc. We just want to make sure we have one week to do a test run. September 21 will be our official kick off date. I hope September 21 is the date that FBC LaGrange starts rocking our community!
  • I wanted to post some pictures of what’s going on in the gym. These were taken from my camera phone, so they’re not the greatest. But you can at least see what is happening. The audio/visual installation people will be back Wednesday to finish the job, so check my blog this week. I will post more pictures as they work.
  • Here’s the gym before anything was done.






  • Here a picture of the drape truss. A black drape will run behind the stage to give it less of a “gym” feel and also allow our production team to move back and forth without being seen. Also, the front of the drape will be white and we can use our LED lights to change colors for atmosphere purposes.






  • Here’s a picture looking towards where the front of the stage will be. It’s kind of hard to see everything, but from the ceiling, A LOT of eqipment has already been flown (hung). We’ve already got 3 projectors, 3 widescreen format screens, 4 speakers, 2 subwoofers, and 2 sets of ellipsoidal lights (12 total lights). They’ve still got to hang the LED lights, and the house lighting.






  • Stay tuned! More to come soon!

New Rock Star On The Rise

  • I’ve known for a while that Charlie is musical. (Seriously, he loves music. He especially gravitates towards guitar and drums.) But today, God sent me a sign that he would be the next big rocker. He’s done some re-styling to his hair. You know, the rock star hair. Apparently the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree where musical tastes are concerned. Apparently, Charlie has styled his hair in the genre of 80’s glam bands. I LOVE 80’s rock, and I attached pictures of Charlie’s new hair do and a picture of 80’s hair band Whitesnake. (If you are not a purveyor of fine 80’s music, they recorded Here I Go Again On My Own). See any similarities? 🙂






Okay, so its been a while…

  • Wow! It’s been a while since I updated my blog! But I’ve been a busy guy. 🙂 I’ll try to do better. To get back in the routine, I wanted to upload Charlie’s August 10 Shout Out. I love that kid so much. He is so fun! It’s in two parts, so make sure you watch both!
