March 2019



I’m excited to announce we’re hosting our 1st Worship Circle on Friday, March 8 from 6:30-8pm. All ages are welcome to gather in the lobby to sing and play together using as many acoustic instruments as can fit in the room. Here’s what you’re  encouraged to bring: an acoustic guitar or acoustic bass, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and hand percussion (shakers, cajon, tambourines, etc). And of course come prepared to sing your heart out as we join together on familiar worship songs and learn from each other. Can’t wait to see you! Have questions? paul.fowler@nmbc.ca

Here are some benefits from joining in on a worship circle (as noted by DanWilt.com)

• Young people gain confidence in both playing instruments and flowing in worship expression.

• Older people break out of their confines and try new things.

• The “all-age” dynamic brings people together.

• Songs are taught to small group leaders.

• Band members learn how to linger in a song, rise and fall with dynamics, and respond musically to changes.
