Fremont Baptist uses a hymnal but also projects the words on the wall. We have an organ but no organist. Our average Sunday attendance is about 25. We are looking for a pastor. We have a family band and a pianist for accompanists, and sometimes the band leads a well-known closing hymn a cappella. The band generally has three to five members, playing two or three guitars and sometimes a banjo. No percussion, generally.
Last Sunday, the first for our new interim minister Jeff Barker, also marked the first time I can recall, in the 28+ years I've been there, that we sang "My faith looks up to thee". To my surprise, it went well and I found it moving.
