Sunday worship this Memorial Day weekend was interesting for your humble, lovable Worship Dude and Dudette.
Dude traveled down to McMinnville and led with our extended family at Christ Community Church.
Dudette traveled up to Hendersonville and directed the choir for the Traditional service at Hendersonville First United Methodist.
Then we joined forces that afternoon and had NWG youth choir rehearsal at HFUMC. They are great kids. Good times.
Worship Dude and Dudette are having a blast.
Here’s the set-lists.
Christ Community Worship Set

Hendersonville First UMC Traditional Service
Ivalene Still, Directing | John G. Elliott Organ / Piano
- Immortal Invisible God Only Wise
- Holy Holy Holy
- Choir Anthem: Be Exalted Oh God
- Message: The Work of The Holy Spirit (Don Hutchinson)
- My Hope Is Built (The Solid Rock)
- God Be With You Till We Meet Again
The feedback on Ivalene directing the choir was, of course, fantastic. She did a great job leading the music and they sang very well. I know because little birdies told me. Some of them, many times! 🙂
Meanwhile, the angels were also on the job at CCC, where it was a great day, but it could have been not-so-great.
Our friends Aaron and Mandie Sotiraidis (Aaron came to play drums)Â were late arriving because an accident had closed the highway. They got there just in time, praise-a-lula, but there was no time to run through every song and detail of the set. No problem.
But then I had a wild -hair moment, the kind that drives your team and tech crew crazy if you’re not careful.
At the last minute, we (pastor Paul and moi) decided to add a new song to conclude his message about angels withÂ “Whom Shall I Fear? (God Of Angel Armies)” .
Very quickly we downloaded the charts from CCLI, added lyrics to the projection, and rehearsed it. Twice. That all took less than 15 minutes and it came together wonderfully.
I should also mention somewhere in this report were blessed to have our friend Obil Perez playing cello, such a beautiful instrument. He rocked the 8th note groove on “Forever” and we had a touching moment singing “This Is My Fathers World”, breaking it down to just voices and cello on verse 3. It wasÂ glorious.
God must have wanted us to do Angel Armies. It was a strong ending to the service. The angels were on double duty Sunday.
