Easter Services

What a great weekend we had across all our campuses. There were a total of over 18,700 people that attended services with Lake Pointe this weekend. Pastor Steve spoke about the redemptive power of Jesus that was very moving. In order to support this message we used two songs from Daniel Kirkley. We invited Daniel to come and sing those songs himself which he was glad to do for us. I put my camera in the booth to get a large stage shot. In addtion to our regular band, there were 22 string players on the stage.

All the on screen graphics were created by one of our video guys, Cameron Schmucker. You can see the full screen video, and you really want to see it to get how cool it is, along with several other video segments from our service over on Wes Hartley's blog. The team really hit a home run all the way around. There were a number of people who came to know Jesus for the first time this past weekend. It makes all the hard work so worth it. I'm proud to be a part of the team.

Very nice - classy. What are those screens you all use for a backdrop on stage? They look kind of like folding room dividers made out of something translucent. And then fed/backlit by ... ? LCD/DLP projectors? Intelligent lighting? First class music, first class staging! glennnnnnnnnnn

The backdrop is a frame called Octanorm. The material is Coroplast. It is rear projected by 2 Sanyo 12,000 lumen LCD projectors.
