this post is part of Sunday Setlists over at Fred McKinnon’s blog.
It was Children’s Sabbath so we had lots of children’s participation in the service.
We opened the service to get people in the room.
Let God Arise-Tomlin
Holy, Holy, Holy-Solid Rock Ringers (children’s handchime group)
Opportunities for Witness and Service
we used this video
Go Tell It On the Mountaintop-Children’s Choir (my 9 year old had a solo and she hit it out of the park)
Glorious One-Fee (offering. one thing i pray for our church is that they will begin to take hold of worship and become the instigators so that i’m not always instructing them, that they learn we are fellow worshippers of Christ and we’re there to help them move towards the throne. today they stood in the middle of this song and sang with no prompting. they are standing and singing in honor of the King and i’m tearing up as i type this)
Scripture Reading-Kimberlin Arnold
Sermon-What Parents and Grandparents Owe Their Children
Take My Life and Let It Be-Tomlin (had a friend come up and tell me afterwards the way we did it was a prayerful lullaby)
another great Sunday worshipping our Great God with the people of First United Methodist Lufkin.
