There are so many exciting things on the horizong for Prodigal15, I hardly know where to start! Tuesday, we are going to be involved in a holiday shoot at FBC with our pastor and Gary Hackney. This is an exciting thing for us, as it will help spread our name around FBC, and give us some positive publicity if all goes well. Extras should arrive no later than 5:30 PM in costume and ready to work.
Wednesday, some of us are rehearsing our Christmas carols, as we have the honor of leading the Alive Sunday School class in caroling that morning during the worship portion of the class. For those of us who need numbers, that's rehearsal on the 14th, and caroling on the 18th. Rehearsal will be held at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, and we will need to be in Alive ready to begin warm-ups at 7:30 AM on Sunday. Please put forth your best effort, and come support us!
We will also be having rehearsal for the FBC Christmas Musical every evening this week, all day Saturday, and Sunday after church. This musical will be performed the night of Sunday the 18th.
In February, we are planning to have our next Mock 48. This is a great opportunity to cross-train our people, as well as a great setting for honing our skills and getting our timing right for the Jacksonville 48-hour Film Fest. Practice is the only way to get better. We will hold this event from February 3-5.
Also in February, we will be putting on another Friday Night Live event! We have this event scheduled for February 17. Our dress rehearsal will be held on the 10th, so those of us in Prodigal15 need to please be thinking of script submissions and getting them in ASAP. We learned last time that that date tends to really creep upon us.
One thing we are planning in the foreseeable future is a Prodigal15 fundraising banquet. This will take a huge effort from everyone in the planning and execution, but we can certainly do it. Please be in prayer over this, and talk to Mauricio Belgrano if you feel led to help with this event.
Finally, I have one very special announcement: we are in the early planning stages of creating our very first televised series as a production company. We need to be in prayer over this, and especially ask that God will grant us unity of spirit and mind. This is a huge undertaking, and we simply cannot accomplish all that we hope to without keeping God at the forefront. Let's remember to be kind to one another, and seek His guidance when we have disagreements. That said, this is a fantastic opportunity to reach the Jacksonville area with the Gospel, and I, for one, am thrilled to have the chance to be a part of this!
So, lots of big things on the horizon. The main thing is that we stay strong in our faith and edify one another rather than tearing each other down. More details will follow in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for more information about the things mentioned above. God Bless, Y'all!
