**** Sunday Setlist for St. Simons Community Church, Oct 19, 2008 ***

Today was a great day at SSCC.  I’d scheduled Harriet Jones to lead worship this week.  She was the former worship leader who was a part of establishing this church.  She’s been leading worship for years and always brings it.  Harriet’s forte is in doing some of the older songs and she has a great way of pulling off a more bluegrass/country style.  She never fails to bring incredible energy to the platform and today was no different.  Plus, since she was leading the entire worship set, I scheduled myself to play the grand piano.  And with her song selections, I had ample opportunity to bang on those keys.

Walk In:
The Rock (I Go To The Rock)
an OLD song … but with that country/blues feel, it’s a blast to play.  I was given a long piano “jam” solo in here to bang away and had a blast doing it.  We also had harmonica.  The people loved this shuffle!

Song 1:
Holy Is The Lord (Tomlin)

Song 2:
I’ll Fly Away (old school, revival style)
Everyone was clapping and having a good ole’ time with this one.  Ben Jones played acoustic “up the neck” and picked out a bluegrass solo, followed by a harmonica solo, followed by another piano solo.  When we ended this song, you would’ve thought someone had just hit a grand slam at the ballgame.

Lamb of God (Twila Paris)
Harriet and a couple of the ladies who have been part of the singing rotation at SSCC for years did this as special music.  They’ve been singing this song for probably at least 10 years, and they nailed it.

Jesus, Messiah (Tomlin)
This was really the only “current” song in the setlist.  I admit, I was hesitant about the set, and feared that it may overly “theme” the Sunday as old fashioned, and since we were starting a new series on dating, sex, and marriage, I could just imagine a bunch of younger, single people coming and hearing all those older songs.  This song was a great addition to bridge the generational gap – though it had it’s own “acoustic” flavor due to our arranging and instrumentation, it was still a great song to choose.

When It’s All Been Said and Done
We just let the singers carry this all by themselves, with no drums, bass, or keys … only acoustic guitar, and it was fitting closer.

David spoke on Week 1 of the new 6-week series called “Ignite”.  He came out on stage to start the series and we were “all black”.  He lit a match and talked about how when we start dating and getting romantically involved, sparks can start to fly, but then everything can quickly (here he puts the match on flash paper and it poofs up in flames in his hand as he lets go) “catch fire and burn away”.

The sermon was incredible – my favorite and most humorous moment was when Pastor David actually “went there” and talked about the situation where our “brain” is relocated from our skull to  …. well, our pants, basically.  Yep, he went there.  It was hysterical.

A great Sunday … tons of compiments from young and old afterward.  I’m grateful that I’m in a church where we have musical diversity in our songs and leadership styles.  I’m looking forward to leading again next week, co-leading with Kim Dixon.

Your turn!

  1. Sounds like a great set. Singing “I’ll Fly Away” is always great fun.
    The message sounds very interesting. Love the “fire”. I look forward to the day when we will be able to use real fire in worship.

    Today was our first Sunday with a praise choir and also lights. The atmosphere was right and the choir did great.

    Power in the Name Of – Gateway Evangelistic College
    One Way – Hillsong
    Never Let Go – Matt Redman
    Grace Will Be My Song – Fee
    Altar: Grace Will Be My Song – Fee

    We were really close to doing some prophetic worship today, but for whatever reason God stopped Darren from going there. In the past when that happened, church went on for hours!!

  3. Ed Schief says:

    There’s a reason those old songs are still with us–they were so well written. Doing them now, it’s kind of like we’re singing along with all the saints that came before us. We did two of them this week

    And Fred, I’d be honored if you’d check out ‘Moses At The Counselor’s Office’.

    Maybe it’s because I’m Irish, but I love Robin Mark. “When It’s All Been Said and Done” is a great and unusual choice!

    Called in a sick day, voice was a mess with a lingering cold. So I just played guitar and manned Ableton for loop duty and my bass played led and knocked it out of the park. Set list with links to loopshere.

    Fred, I’ll Fly Away sounds like it was a blast, wish I could hear that.

  13. Bobby Gilles says:

    “I’ll Fly Away” is always fun. And I love “I Go To The Rock.” Sounds like a good mix of songs.

    It was a Baby Dedication Sunday for us, which is always a blessing.

  14. Dean Lusk says:

    Got ’em posted! Enjoying this — giving in to conformity was a good thing! 🙂

  15. Steve Lowe says:

    Amazing – I’ve noticed several Churches doing “I’ll Fly Away” this weekend. We did it in 4/4 with a southern gospel feel. That bass pounding 1-5 and tinkling piano made it really fun!
