My Worship Confessional for SSCC
It was great to have my good friend and incredible guitarist, Jay Sellers, back with me today at SSCC. We had a shorter set of worship music today because of other things that were happening. The most incredible part of today’s services was the return of another dear friend. Todd Hendrix (you will see him singing on my “Worship Under the Stars” videos) was back on the praise team for the first time in nearly a year after a hard, tough fight with cancer. Praise God that he’s defeated this disease and that Todd could be back on stage, leading those who attend SSCC in glorious worship. We also broadcast the service on LiveStream, so Todd was taking part in leading people online as well.
Overall, everything went great. We had a few mix issues and the room sounded different today – sometimes that just happens. On the “walk-in” song during the 11:00, I invited people to stand twice and they couldn’t hear me. My wife later told me that she was watching me when I said it, and she heard it, but it was muffled and she was pretty sure nobody else even understood what I was saying. I had a pretty big crew of singers and musicians on the stage today, so that may have complicated and “muddied” the mix a bit.
Walk In: “Glory to God” (Steve Fee/Vicky Beeching) – we did this in “A”, thanks to the many responses I got a week or so ago via Facebook and Twitter. The song had a lot of energy and people seemed to catch on quickly.
Opening Song: “For All You’ve Done” (Hillsongs)
Second Worship Set:
“Doxology” (new arrangement from Don Poythress, loved it!)
“Take My Life and Let It Be” – we did the CFNI version of this, with just piano and vocal. Kim Dixon, an extraordinary vocalist led out on Verse 1 and in both services got confused on the melody. That’s not like Kim … it was a bit awkward and I had no clue where to go on the piano, and we’d finally sync up about half way through the verse. She kept getting distracted by hearing the Chris Tomlin/Passion version. We were singing the traditional version. She was a great sport and we jumped right into Verse 2 and allowed Todd to sing solo … his voice was strong and amazing, as always!
Our 11:00 AM was as packed as it’s ever, EVER, been. Sadly, our parking lot was so full that people were turned away by the parking attendants. There was absolutely “no room” left for people to park. Next week will also be a huge week as we are having New York Times, Best-Selling Author, Ron Hall (co-author of “Same Kind of Different As Me”) speak in both services.
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. Also, be sure and “tweet” about it on Twitter using the #sundaysetlists hashtag. Should you upload pictures of your worship services via Twitpic, use the same hashtag. Upload videos to YouTube or Vimeo and tag as well. Take a look at all the #sundaysetlists activity already happening in our “Twub”.
