Hey there, Campbell UMC,
What do worship services at Campbell and a fantastic jazz band have in common? They will be together next Sunday morning, June 6th!
In all three services next Sunday, the music of worship will be provided by a full jazz band. Woods Chapel United Methodist Church in Lee’s Summit has a jazz band ministry, and they will be in Springfield for the Missouri Annual Conference. So on Sunday they will be here at Campbell to give their talent in worship.
One of our congregational directions this year is “More Connectional,” meaning cooperating with other United Methodist congregations. This is a perfect example, bringing one ensemble in the music ministry of one UMC to the worship services of another. We are also connected in a family relationship – our own Rev. Steve Johnson’s son plays trombone in the band!
Next Sunday is an opportunity for Campbell to display some of that phenomenal hospitality that we are so proud of. In addition to being present for worship, extending a warm and gracious welcome to our guests from Woods Chapel UMC, and enjoying a worship experience together like none other, a special offering will be collected at each service to support this innovative ministry. Please give generously in support and gratitude for our guests in worship.
Sunday will be swingin’! – Andy B.
