First Baptist Texarkana The service started with the full band, and small orchestra performing welcome song “Our God,” as people moved around the auditorium to get settled. While the welcome music was playing there were slides up on screens showing off the announcements.

First congregational song: upbeat song of redemption and proclamation that celebrates Death to Life of Christ and victory in Christ titled “Jesus you found me”- sung by Kristina Stanfill. Following that song the music minister challenges the congregation to celebrate the freedom in Christ and after that challenge then turns everyone to greet others. I wouldn’t have done a greeting at all because I believe that the welcome music time helps facilitate time to move around, talk and greet others. After challenging the congregation to celebrate freedom I would’ve read a scripture on the fall of man and why we are in need of a savior, and why bondage is bad as a Christian, causing people to reflect on their lives and to have directed prayer time. Following the greeting is the song “Hosanna (Praise is rising),” then corporate Celebration of Baptism. Following the baptism was a speaker who welcomed guest to fill out a guest card, gave announcements of upcoming events, and spoke about online giving to the church then closed the announcements with prayer that transitioned into the offering. I personally think it’s odd to have announcements in the middle of the service. I think announcements should be placed at the end of the service after a benediction
We are writing in connection with Brannon and Shana Hogan’s move to your congregation. Brother and Sister Hogan lived in our area for a number of years and attended meetings briefly when they first arrived. When asked why they stopped Brannon mentioned in his previous congregation he was given too much responsibility too soon. This was made worse by his tendency to be a perfectionist which caused him emotional stress. He was afraid by returning to meetings he would find himself back in the same situation.
One of the consequences of World War I within American and Mexican music industry was prioritizing popular national music over other genres such as Tejano. However, this type of music had a new boom in post-war decades as a consequence of the improvement of socioeconomic opportunities.

baton twirlers, the cheerleaders, the flag spinning, the marching band, the mascot, the Saluki shakers, and the last group of cheerleaders. There is an empty space between the last group and the coming cars. Anyway, it was good to have a minute to organize what I was able to write. The rain did not stop at all, it stopped raining for some minutes, but it started again. The Interim Chancellor, Dr. Brad Cowell passed driving a car, there is a couple in this car, I am not sure who they are; but I guess they are from the '65 class which is celebrating 50 years of their graduation.
The frequently described to us how we were the only ones who have come to give a helping hand. We were welcomed right away and treated like visiting family members. I expected our visit to be like us working for them, but much to my surprise, it was much more of a group effort. We all worked together to help build classrooms and other additions to their church. They treated us more like family than guests and in such a short ten days, I built friendships that continue beyond just the trip.
About a month after the nerve racking All-District Band auditions, three bands in Northwest Missouri performed last Saturday to a near-full theater. Thomas Brockman, the lead band director at Smithville and NWMMEA president said, “All-District is an honor band that represents our top players in the Northwest region. Students go in and audition on a set of material and they are selected via their performance in the audition and if you make this group you are doing very well and you’re also one of the top players in Northwest Missouri.” The NWMMEA or Northwest Missouri Music Educators Association holds audition events for high school and middle school band students on the first Saturday of November annually.

Lawrence Church they introduced me to a few other members of the congregation of which they befriended after attending the church over the past couple of years. The members were very friendly, and offered to answer any of my questions after hearing about my fieldwork assignment. Shortly after being formally introduced my friends and I as well as the members they introduced me too all sat down in the fifth row. On my right sat one of my friend’s Jacob while on my left was Margaret, one of the members I had recently been introduced too.
