Sunday Setlists #12 – Your Worship Recap

Hey Everybody!

Welcome to the 12th week of “Sunday Setlists”.  For the last 12 weeks, we’ve posted our worship confessionals, reviews, and recaps of what happened during our weekly worship services.  We’ve networked, gotten great ideas, and made new friends.

I’m excited to share that one of the songs in MY SETLIST this week was a direct result of my studying other setlists through this blog carnival!

Here’s the rules:

1.  You don’t have to be the Worship Leader or Pastor – you can be anyone who was at a worship service.  Blog about your worship service and let us know what songs you sang and discuss any other elements that you wish.

2.  In the blogpost, you must link back to THIS POST and mention “Sunday Setlists”

3.  After blogging your recap and linking to this post in your blog, come back here and fill out the “Mister Linky” below.  Be sure that your link goes directly to your “Sunday Setlist” post, and not to your homepage.  Links to homepages will be deleted.

4.  Leave a comment here, and visit other “Sunday Setlist” posts and leave comments there as well!

*** Sunday Setlist for St. Simons Community Church, Oct 12, 2008 ***

Today was a great day at SSCC.  The crowd was “off” a little bit because I think a lot of people leave town when there is a 4-day weekend.  It was still a good Sunday.  It was one of those Sundays when people’s response isn’t quite as powerful as it normally is.  The “praise” after songs wasn’t as strong.  Jokes weren’t as funny.  It was cloudy and raining outside – so maybe that “blah” feeling outside was also how people were feeling “inside”.  Still, there were plenty of people there who didn’t hold back and in all, I’d still say it was a great day.


We did my arrangement of “When We All Get to Heaven”.  It’s a funk groove that is lots of fun, though on the last 2 repeats of the Chorus, we double-time and pull it back “campmeeting” style.  The folks were loving that.  In the first service, I asked everyone to stand during that last Chorus and sing along.  Most people didn’t move, and I figured my mic wasn’t clear or hot enough in the house mix.  Discussion with Shannon, the Associate Worship Leader (who was out in the house) afterwards confirmed my suspision (he brought it up, I didn’t even mention it).  I had a chat w/ the sound guys in the back and they turned it up.  Overall, I needed lots of help with my voice in the mix today because I woke up with a scratchy, sore throat.

Let Everything That Has Breath

Immediately after this song, everyone was seated and we had about a 2-minute movie trailer for our next series, “Ignite”.  This is a 6-week series starting next week on Dating, Sex, and Marriage.

Hosanna (Paul Baloche)
We successfully used the loop that I created for this song and did it for the first time.  Everything went smoothly.

Hosanna (Hillsongs)
Led by Kim Dixon, this is one of her best songs and our favorite songs.

Merciful God (Getty)
Tammy Trent covers this song beautifully, so we did this with the acoustic piano and Kim Dixon led it with a new singer, Amy, doing the harmony.  She had a fantastic “first Sunday” and everyone commented on how great they sounded together.  The lyrics to this song are deep and powerful .. and I’d not discovered it until I was reading someone else’s “Sunday Selitsts” post last week!

Sermon:  Jonah  4 (last week)

Closer:  You Are My King  (Amazing Love)

OK, let’s hear about your service!

  1. Great mix on your set list. Seriously the vintage “When We All Get to Heaven”? Would love to hear that…
    I liked your loops btw

  2. Ed Schief says:

    We had a low turnout, but the weather was so freakin’ gorgeous–near 80–that I wouldn’t blame anyone for skipping. Normal temps around here would be more like 62, and after this it’s a long, cold, grey stretch until April. Molly and I walked the dunes this afternoon, which gives a nice feeling of moral superiority after playing at church.

  3. This is Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. We had a great service, focusing on our many blessings.


  4. Mike says:

    Man, I was really trying to nail first this week. I waited and waited… then had to go out. Bummer!

    I like the two Hosanna’s back to back… we’ve done that. Very cool.

  10. Bobby Gilles says:

    “When We All Get To Heaven.” How fun!

  11. Fred says:

    The Tammy Trent version is the only one I found on iTunes … but it’s got a nice, country/bluegrass feel to it.

    Bobby – yeah, that song is a hit … I open it by playing through the first verse and chorus “old-school” style on the piano … then the drummer clicks off a 4-count, and we go into this funk groove, complete w/ wah electric guitar. It’s a blast – as we repeat the final Chorus, we double-time it campmeeting style, and anyone left sitting down stands up and claps by then!

    For the Kingdom,
    Fred McKinnon

    Present and accounted for. Thanks, Fred, and I hope everyone had a beautiful Sunday. We were joined by a guest musician, Thad Cockrell, which made for some beautiful harmonies. It’s been a while since we’ve had a guest, but I love it- consider adding this into your service!

  21. Kyle says:

    Well, it was a rough sunday. Looking forward to moving on 🙂 Anxious about a rough meeting that was scheduled after the service, set was disjointed and so was the congregation. Musically fine, but that’s not of much consolation. You can view the damage report here.

    as always thanks fred!!!

  27. The Baloche song was my favorite! I hope we do it again. Also, it was probably one of my favorite walk-in songs yet. Seriously, from a musical stand-point it was a very ‘rock-in’ A.M. In fact, I had a few folks tell me afterward that it “rocked like a Shannon-set”, meaning – to them, at least – that ya’ll picked some really energetic tunes. They were right – I LOVED IT! (Even if I couldn’t hear your voice loudly enough)
