Marquette – Sunday August 30th, 2015 – It was a fresh, warm, balmy Sunday morning, perfect for a morning worship service at Grace United Methodist, located in eyes shot of Northern Michigan University.
41West Christian Fellowship members Luke and Todd Noordyk helped conduct a worship service at Grace. Leader Bob Ross and members from the band New Day from First United Methodist church sang and played with 41West for this service.
41West strives to bring a freshness to worship settings. A new fresh PA, state of the art PRO speakers and cords, authentic sounding keyboards, quality tube amps, Heil mics, and drums were all brought in for a lively worship session at Grace. The music was festive this Sunday morning with 41West and New Day, plus three members of Grace also participated on piano, violin and 12 string guitar.
Rev. Christopher Hintz, Pastor, preached with clarity capturing our attention through the 41West PA system. Sunday we heard pastor clearly and with the energy of upbeat music and the band, the service was meaningful and fun. Attendees said, “It was a good service“ and folks leaving commented to pastor and the band, “We need more of that”.
Luke Noordyk showcased 41West’s new wireless digital console which resides on an Apple phone or Apple IPad. Luke chose the IPad for this service and was able to walk through out the sanctuary and mix sound from various pews gaining a clear, friendly, fresh sound that Grace attendees enjoyed.
