The OMPC Worship Ministry is currently hiring a part-time stagehand (20-25 hours/week). Hours include Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Qualified applicants should be able to lift 50 pounds over their head, enjoy their steaks medium-rare (at the most), never use the phrase “lefty-loosy, righty-tighty” and have extensive knowledge of local cheese dips. Kombucha Juice and Essential Oils are not provided. Contact Jason or Wes in the Worship Ministry for more information.
One of my favorite Sundays out of the entire year is this Sunday – our 12th Annual Bullfrog Choir!! The morning’s worship set provides an opportunity for EVERY guy (and their sons) at OMPC to come and help lead in worship.
I’m pleased to offer our latest CD of live recordings at Oak Mountain. These recordings were all done in the context of a normal worship service, with some of the finest musicians in Birmingham. There’s a variety of styles represented – from full band and choir, band and praise team, and acoustic sets with fiddle.
You can download the new tunes from iTunes by clicking here. Enjoy!
Reminder to worship choir – NO rehearsal this week. See you next Wednesday – December 4, 6-7 in the choir room.
We opened yesterday morning with Let Us Return.
After our call to worship we sang All Because of Jesus, Crown Him With Many Crowns, The Same Love, and Center.
Our offering song was Give Me Faith, from Elevation Worship.
Advent starts on Sunday. Come worship with us as we celebrate our anticipation of Christ. You may want to download our new Christmas Album Ring the Bells – available now on iTunes.
And be sure to join us on the 15th for our Christmas Worship Service – the Glorious Impossible. 8:15 and 10:45.
I compiled an album of great tunes from over the past 10 years of Christmas worship services into an Oak Mountain Christmas album – Ring the Bells. You can download it from iTunes here.
These were all recorded live, with over 100 of the best worship volunteers in the city. A few album credits:
Drums – Jon Harvill
Bass – Raymond Butler
Electric Guitars – Jack Swaim, Josh Vigneulle, and Tim Ogletree
Acoustic Guitars – Patrick Bush, Justin Hale and Josh Vigneulle
Synths – Jack Swaim
Percussion – Michael Southerland and Matt Minor
Saxophone – David McCool
Solo vocalists include Carlee Green, Jenny Pruitt, Sharla Rose, and Jeff Sauceda.
I did all the mixing and mastering. Hope you enjoy.
So I’m a day late this week…
Last Sunday was the inaugural performance of my wife’s newest musical “Not Just With Our Words.” She started working on it back in late spring of 2012, and started rehearsing with the kids in the fall.
About 70 kids, and a whole slew of adult volunteer teachers, set builders, prop masters, and technicians helped to put it all together.
We’re working right now on the video from Sunday’s program, and we’ll be making the musical available for purchase to other churches soon.
Our Easter Season worship service is early this year – March 10th – just 12 days away. Make plans to join us for either (or both) morning service; 9 and 10:45 for “Your Love Never Fails.”
