…you’ve got questions, we’ve go answers. I think from time to time I will use this blog to answer common questions that come up. The reason I thought of it was a question that someone submitted via a Connection Card this past week.
The question was can we turn the music volume down so they can hear other people singing besides just the worship team. The answer to that is…No. Here’s why. The person asking the question thought that it would be more worshipful if they could hear others. Actually the opposite is true. People are much more likely to sing out with all their hearts when they know they can’t be heard by others. I know that’s true for me…if you thought my dancing was bad, you should hear my singing! But yet on Sunday’s, I can sing at the top of my lungs, because I know that I can’t be heard.
Also keep in mind that the Experience is designed for people who have not yet made a decision to follow Christ. They are use to going to concerts where the volume is louder and since the songs are new to them, it’s much more likely they will try to sing along because they are not as afraid to make a mistake that the person sitting next to them will hear.
Well gotta get going the team is getting ready to practice and we’re shooting some video footage, so lots to do tonight before the big New Year’s Eve party planning session.
