ELLISVILLE NEWS–3/5/24: Beautiful Service For Candy; Last CSLN Service At Our Charlotte Pike Location.

Hi Everyone,

Just a brief update here. The memorial service for Candy Paull on Saturday was beautiful and uplifting. Donna Michael did a terrific job of putting it together, Laura Powers put together a moving video tribute to Candy with lots of pictures, and there was some beautiful music, which I was honored to be part of. Thanks, to Larry Faragalli for putting the music part together.

This Sunday, March 10th, will be our last CSLN service at our Charlotte Pike location. We are selling the building, and will be sharing the new space with Unity on Franklin Rd., starting Sunday, March 17th.

This Sunday will be the last time for a while, that we will have a full band, as the acoustics at Unity can’t accommodate that much sound. I’m not exactly what the new configuration of the band will be, but I bet it will still be good.

This Sunday, I am proud to be one of 3 performers who will be doing a song at our last Service. I will be performing my song “Something Good’s Gonna Come From This” at the beginning of the service. Antoinette Olesen will be singing “I Will Remember You,” and there will be a video presentation assembled by Buddy Farler, that I am sure will bring back lots of memories. Shawn Gallaway will end the service with his song “We Choose Love.”

If you have ever been part of the CSLN Community, I hope you can make it–there will probably be a large crowd and perhaps, people you haven’t seen in a while. Note: Saturday Night, March 9th, we go to Daylight Savings time, so don’t forget to Spring ahead one hour (Otherwise you may be showing up as the service is ending).

Looking ahead to Sunday, March 17th, the CSLN service will start at noon, following Unity’s service at 9:30. Fellowship will happen before our service around 11:15. I believe the Stereo Angels (Joelle Platt and Raven Barrientos) will perform. Big changes like this can bring uncertainty and anxiety, so let’s know that Something Good’s Gonna Come From This.

Spring is coming–enjoy.
