this post is a part of Sunday Setlists over at Fred McKinnon’s blog!
we had a great Sunday. it was the day before school started back and we had a great crowd.
We did an opening song this week again, and it rocked. we had no technical issues and my goodness, the people sang.
Undignified-Redman (Crowder arr) this song was so fun and though it was unfamiliar to some of the crowd, they were really into it, and i was worn out at the end.
Opportunities for Witness and Service
Third Grade Bible Presentation/Children’s Time
Welcome and Greeting
All Because of Jesus-Fee (this song ROCKED!! the congregation was really singing and the energy level was just electric)
Wonderful Cross-Watts/Tomlin/Walt/Reeves (our bass player David did a wonderful job on the intro for this)
Glory to God Forever-Beeching/Fee (second week for this and we invited them to sing at the end. as a side note that afternoon at home, my 9 year old was in the kitchen singing “Take my life and let it be all for You and for Your glory, take my life and let it be Yours”)
Sermon-(it was untitled, but Nick challenged us to do something extraordinary. to see possibilities instead of obstacles)
Take My Life And Let It Be-Tomlin arr (we let our other acoustic player Danny go on this one and he did not disappoint. April sang lead and i picked up the chorus. it was a wonderful way to end our service)
i really appreciate and love my team. i had a comment this past week from a guest who was in town doing a seminar for the UMC that he enjoyed the authentic nature of the service and my leadership being authentic in that. i told him that every person on our stage and in our booth is authentic and that is what he saw. i’m so thankful i get to serve with such humble, God-soaked people. it’s a pleasure.
