The Highland Church of Christ is breaking out of the mold by adding a second Sunday service with live instruments instead of an acapella choir.
Highland Church of Christ
The Highland Church of Christ has a new twist to Sunday services. Instead of just a cappella singing, the church has decided to make their 11 o' clock service have live instruments. Which is a major change to the way service is conducted within Churches of Christ. Highland Church of Christ in Abilene is one of the few churches in the nation that has made this change.
Worship Minister at Highland, Brandon Thomas, said they wanted to reach people in deeper ways. He has also seen a jump in people using instruments to worship and Thomas wanted to bring that diversity to the church. The church has only had two services use the instruments so far, but Thomas said it's going well.
Thomas said that even the older people have enjoyed the live instruments. He said that they are singing more than they did before and really getting into the music.
The people that perform the music are all from the church and now they are able to showcase their talents to the rest of their church community.
