Sermon Remix 2011: Track Listing

You are looking at the great cover that Cory Wilson designed for our upcoming Sermon Remix 2011 album.  If you missed this announcement, we have taken pivotal messages at North Side from 2011, spliced them down to under 5 minutes, written and recorded music to back them up.

Since the last time I mentioned it here, we have added 2 additional tracks.  An EP is a 5-7 song collection, when you get all the way up to 8, you might as well go for 10!  Jeff picked two additional messages from last year on Habakkuk and Nicodemus.  So glad these were included!

Cory did a wonderful job on the artwork, and the final mixes are being worked on currently and they are sounding great.  The worship team members who have been involved have all stated that they thought this was a neat idea, but now, listening to them, they are blown away with how impacting these tracks are all the while being impacted by biblical truth.  This is a very unique project and we can’t wait to get it in your hands on Sunday, March 18th.

Here is the back cover and the track listings:

Compass Deadline (New & Improved Edition Coming)

photo-1

It is deadline day for the January/February Compass which means we are running around doing last minute touch-ups to the magazine.  Our team is knocking it out of the park to make this edition extra special.

A few months ago, I tried to figure out how to expand this great piece and even make it more effective in connecting and equipping our church.  We also felt the need to educate our church body at what was going on as a whole.

With a little tweaking of paper weight and printing specifications, we were able to add 16 pages with no additional cost.  That means a lot more info and a lot more work.

Here’s how the new edition will be broken down:

  • Connect – This section will help you connect to some essential things happening in our church family.  This will have all the intro stuff, items you need to know, etc.
  • Grow – This is the curriculum section that John writes so masterfully.  The only change we are making is taking out the Scripture passages printed in this section.  We are doing it for two reasons: 1) it saves space for more content, and 2) we think it is important for you to have your Bible open while doing the study.  We want you underlining and highlighting all the stuff in your Bible so you can find it later.  We are also adding NSU articles to go deeper in certain sections of the study that might cause extra questions.
  • Live – This section is the main addition to the Compass.  This section is filled with North Siders on how you can live out your faith.  From ways to serve, to improve your marriage, to stories of people living out their faith, we think you are going to be encouraged and equipped to walk more closely to Jesus.

The main goal of this edition is for you to walk through 64 pages and say at the end of it: “Wow. I never knew the people of North Side were advancing the Kingdom of God this much!”

Pray you will say that.  You can get your new edition on January 3rd.  Please pray for us today as we finish it up!  How do you think we can improve the Compass even more?

“Offering” Released This Sunday

North Side Worship Offering Booklet Front Cover

A long-awaited package is in the mail and that means North Side Worship’s newest album will be released this Sunday at North Side.  The cover is above which was designed by the ever-so-talented, Cory Wilson.  Polly Brown was so gracious to let us use her hand for the cover – thanks!

This Christmas worship album was produced by the grand-master funk, Anthony Gravley.  Our worship team and some special guests worked really hard to finish it up.

You can look at the track listing here.  People who have heard sneak peeks have been so kind and generous with their encouragement.  I think this project can get you in the Christmas spirit but also call you to worship which was our prayer.  What’s funny is Anthony and I are the only ones that have really heard the project straight through.  Our band heard songs that they played or sang on, but most did not hear the complete product.  Friday night, we are having a listening party, in which our band will hear the whole thing from start to finish.

And then Sunday, you can get your copy (I mean copies)!  We are going to sell them at 1 for $10 and every CD after that, $5.  So, we think you need to get one for basically everyone you are buying for this Christmas.  Buy as stocking stuffers, office party gifts, or just attach it to a card that you give every single person you know.  Our band doesn’t get paid for this project, it goes to ministry stuff, so I can say with overwhelmingly enthusiasm – buy, and buy a bunch!

I wanted to provide a sneak listen to the CD, so I compiled a medley of 10 seconds of each song strung together.  Hopefully, you like what you hear and you can help us share the true meaning of Christmas with many people this December!
