Working Weekend

We've had a busy, working weekend around Covenant Life.

Yesterday was Work Day 1, the first of our quarterly clean-up, fix-up, sort-out, and organize days. We managed to complete:
  • Rolling carts for our confidence monitors
  • A rolling cart for our keyboards
  • Re-geling all our stage lights
  • Cleaning out the catwalks
  • New doorstops that won't leave the doorways
  • Moving some dimmer circuits from unusable locations to usable locations
  • Adding an board operator's solo monitor to our secondary venue
  • Painting names on our set backdrop rolling carts (Are you seeing a trend? We love things that move easily!)
  • Assembling a new tripod for Camera 2
  • Testing and fixing all of our non-dedicated video lines to various places in the auditorium
We also got a good start on:
  • Testing all of our microphones to see how their frequency responses vary from mic to mic
  • Building a special power cable for all the stuff in the front row.
  • Cleaning up our long-term storage area.
Of course, being the non-archivist type, I completely failed to take any pictures. And I also managed to leave the camera cable at home, so I couldn't even get any pictures today of the final products. Hopefully, I'll have some shots by the end of the week.

After cleaning up from our clean-up day, we got ready for Sunday. Joshua Harris preached the third message in The Old Paths, our current series on Jeremiah. You will be able to hear this passionate, gospel-soaked message here very soon.

I will not be posting for a few days ("What's new?!" you say), as I check out of the blogosphere to take a few extra days off to paint our bedroom (and basement apartment, if I'm lucky).

That's great that you have these quarterly. We need to have one of these here in Charlotte, as it's been years since we've had one.

I was wondering, what are your demographics of your team? What are the avg. ages, % single & married, men/women, etc.
