“God sightings”: An Interview with our Mystery Worshiper

Good morning friends,

This Sunday we had a special mystery guest in worship who is going to share his/her impressions of worship yesterday.

Question:  Good morning mystery worshiper.

Answer:  Good morning! 

Question: What was yesterday’s worship experience or special occasion?

Answer: It was “A Day in the Life of Camp Living Waters.”

Question: Did anyone welcome you personally?

Answer: Yes.

Question: How would you describe the pre-service atmosphere?

Answer:  Friendly and Welcoming.

Question: What were the exact opening words of the service?

Answer: ‘Good morning’ . . . Then some announcements.  Then ‘Let us begin our worship in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.’

Question: Which books did the congregation use during the service?

Answer: The Black Hymnal [New Century Hymnal].

Question: What musical instruments were played?

Answer: Guitar, organ, drums, piano, mandolin.

Question: Did anything distract you?

Answer: No.

Question: What was the title of the sermon?

Answer: There wasn’t a ‘traditional’ sermon yesterday.  The idea was to show what a day at Living Waters might be like rather than just talk about it.  It was wonderful.  

Question: What part of the service was like being in heaven?

Answer: The songs.

Question: How would you describe the after-service fellowship time?

Answer: It was fun.  Good food.  Wonderfully welcoming people. 

Question: Did this service make you feel glad to be a Christian?

Answer: Yes

Question: What is the one thing you will remember about this worship in a few days’ time?

Answer: Joni [the Executive Director of Camp Living Waters] playing the game with everyone in the pew was awesome! [There was a relay race with marbles played with the congregation.  You kind of had to see it to believe it!]   I think the children could have stayed in worship rather than had their own class, as usually happens.  There was great fellowship and music!

Question:  Thank you for participating in our first Mystery Worshiper service!

    Excellent! Yes I agree, the kids should’ve stayed. I hope we get to do this again next year. Perhaps before summer to help promote the summer camps.
