My Worship Confessional for SSCC
Great day of worship today. I’ll keep my recap short as I’m enjoying some PGA Golf w/ my son on the TV right now. One of our faithful church members is on the tour and is currently in the running … so we’re excited.
I will speak briefly about something I’m doing this summer – I am intentionally building our worship team each week with at least one of our high school youth or college students. My desire is to get them plugged in during the summer and to reflect a “multi-generational” approach to worship leading. This morning I brought in Aaron, a great guitarist and worship leader who helps lead back in the youth group. Aaron just graduated from high school and I’m excited about getting him involved with us this summer.
Walk In: “I Have Found” (Kim Walker), led by Kim Dixon
“Love the Lord” (Lincoln Brewster)
*we used the Ableton Live loop and tracks on this from InteractiveWorshipLive.Com. I muted everything we had “live” and had the loop, tambourine loop, pads, and 2 additional electric guitar tracks playing along with us … and of course, the click track.
“Glorious One” (Fee) – led by Aaron.
*Aaron did a great job leading into this song by exhorting the congregation .. he talked about how the first line says “we lift our hands”, and encouraged everyone to do it. Wow, way to go man!
“How Marvelous” (I Stand Amazed) Hymn
*one of my all-time favorite hymns. After 3 verses, we repeated the Chorus 3x, and on the final time, we had the lighting change so that the house lights came up on the congregation, and the stage lights went down … an idea I had to try and show that it was about them singing, not about them watching us. We backed off our mics and just let them sing it … and they carried the room with gusto.
“Mighty To Save/The Stand” Medley (Hillsongs)
*love doing this Medley, we sustain the “conquered the grave, and bring it down into the Pre-Chorus of “The Stand” … “what could I say …” and build it up.
Special Sermon Intro:
Well … we did a spoof on “The Adams Family” … thanks to Jim and Deb (coworkers @sscc) for coming up with the lyrics. We are doing a series called “Heroes” and we focused on the dysfunctional family today. See if you can hear it:
They’re busy and they’re active
With work and school and practice
They’re very much distracted
The “Average Family”
With FaceBook, Email, I.M.
Instead of conversation
Laptops on vacation
The “Average Family”
So listen as we teach on
Truth’s you’ll want to lean on
So you don’t have to be one
The “Average Family”.
Pretty funny, eh? I played a harpsichord sound and it got quite a few laughs.
Our closer was “Center” (Tim Hughes) led by Kim Dixon.
That’s a wrap for us. Time for you to share your worship setlists! Remember, make sure your URL is the full URL to your blog post, and not your blog’s homepage. Pretty please.
