(And we have a winner! Thanks to Michelle Weger for creating this week’s Sunday Setlists logo. Make sure you visit her blog! If you’d like to submit a banner/logo for “Sunday Setlists”, please email it to me, and we’ll feature you and your blog in this spot!)
Hey Everyone –
WOW – so we’re (20) TWENTY FULL WEEKS into this “Sunday Setlists” thing. I was thinking to myself “the last thing anybody needs is yet another blog carnival”. Well, this has done a whole lot for helping us network and learn about other worship services, styles, and song selections. Thanks for being a part!
To participate, just follow these simple rules. (They are simple, yet each week scores of folks seem to not figure it out!?)
1. Share a recap of your worship service on your blog! (don’t have a blog, just put it in the comments box, or on FaceBook, or any other social networking site that you can link to)
2. In the recap, mention that you are participating in “Sunday Setlists” and link back to THIS POST.

3. Fill out the “Mister Linky” form below. In the “URL” field, enter the URL to YOUR blog post or the page on the web that has YOUR review. Don’t link to your homepage – link to the actual page or blog entry that you have this week’s setlist on. (Homepage links will be removed).
4. Leave a comment below, and visit the other sites!
That’s it – plain and simple!
Here’s our recap for St. Simons Community Church, Sunday Dec. 7, 2008
(with iTunes links where appropriate)
Walk-In: Gloria (Mercy Me)
Song #1: Love the Lord (Lincoln Brewster Version, w/o the LB guitar, though!)
(add-on in 2nd service): O Come, All Ye Faithful (see below)
Song #2: Hallelujah (Your Love is Amazing)
(*this is a new arrangement from Brian Doerkson’s new CD, do yourself a favor and check out the link to iTunes, it really brings this song back to life)
Closer: Hosanna (Hillsong)
*Add-On: After the first service at 9:00, I was talking with one of our elders and he said he really missed the fact that we hadn’t done any Christmas music in the service. “Gloria” didn’t really count for him because it was a “walk-in”, and it wasn’t the one that you would sing along with. I struggle with that in the early part of December – as much as I love the Christmas carols, I would rather sing them at parties and at Christmas Eve services, and a little closer to Christmas … it’s hard for me to feel like I’m really “worshiping” singing most of those “story songs”. C’mon, don’t shoot me. Anyway, I knew he was probably right, so I managed to squeeze in one verse and Chorus of “O Come, All Ye Faithful” after the Announcements/Prayer to setup “Your Love is Amazing”, and it was beautiful.
Sermon: “Construction Christmas”, Part 1
We are starting a series called “Constructing Christmas” which tells the “story behind His story” of how God was “constructing” or laying out the Christmas birth of Christ from the beginning.
Here’s a video open we’re using for the sermon. Kudos to Chris and Travis for their tech-genuis artistic skills. (more info on both of their sites regarding the creation details)
