HAPPY NEW YEAR COS!
It’s a new year!!! First I want to say thank you to you all. 2018 was an absolutely incredible year for COS. Some of you don't know how impactful it was and I am only writing this to show you that the things we are involved in as COS are impacting our community, country, and world. Don't take what you get to do in COS for granted.
An overview of 2018 for COS:
Around 132 - 140 JHM Services
Around 132 - 140 HSM

Student Leadership Conference - Over 500 students - INDIANA

Worship Leader Summit - TENNESSEE - 20 Worship Pastors
Orange Conference - ATLANTA - 200 Youth Pastors

New COS Songs written:
"Hold my heart"
There was so much more but I can't remember it all cause I am old. I mention all this out of thankfulness to you all. You have all in some way participated and influenced all of this. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
For 2019 I ask for one thing: PRAY. Not to pray for more opportunity, but to pray for COS as whole. That what we do stays impactful whether it’s big or small. Because it really doesn't matter the size of the event, because every opportunity is equally important because we can to lead people to the throne of JESUS.
LOVE YOU STUDENTS
STUFF TO KNOW FOR JANUARY :
We need to see more commitment out of you all especially those of you on MIC. Choir weekends are mandatory. When choir weekends are scheduled you, should be giving the same amount of effort to make it as if you were on mic for that weekend. And because there are not that many choir rehearsals please be practicing to the MP3's.
Make sure that you practicing your new songs for the new year. Start now not at the first practice or first weekend. Please have your music memorized. This includes vocalists as well. A bad habit that many vocalists are doing on the weekends is looking at their phones and not prepared. Please everyone needs to be prepared for the weekends. If you have questions please ask.
There will be a couple of all band meetings in January. Not many practices because of finals and holiday's so make sure you know your music so that when we come together for practices or the weekends we don’t have to waste time trying to learn the music there. We can work more on blending as a band.
ON MIC AUDITIONS:
Vocals we will be having one more mic audition in January. There are 2 spots in HSM and 1 in JHM
Songs to know:
Lead and Parts for Hosanna and Reckless Love.
Those will happen on Jan 7th. If you have any questions please ask Chair - firstname.lastname@example.org.
