This past Sunday our church came together outdoors in the Pier Village’s Neptune Park down by the ocean. It’s one of our favorite things to do a couple of times per year. This recap of the service as a part of the weekly “Sunday Setlists” event hosted by TheWorshipCommunity.Com each week. Visit to view other setlists and worship recaps from other churches across the country.
Thanks to a lot of hard work by our tech director, Travis Paulding, the load-in and load-out of the equipment for Church in the Park is a piece of cake. We’ve used the same sound company out of Savannah for a few years now who always shows up with the right gear and the right crew. With our volunteer team the setup goes very fast and the sound is always top-notch. Through doing this event many times our admin team pulls together all the needed resources, assigns all the staff their roles, and we move our church to a beautiful, outdoor, oceanside park.
When I’m planning the music for Church in the Park I like to include songs that the people love to sing. I also like to include more popular songs that may be current on our local radio. Lastly, I try to always include some older songs that everyone will know and be familiar with.
Our opening songs included:
“Hold Us Together” (C) – Matt Maher
“Forever Reign” (C) – Kristian Stanfill
“Our God” (G) – Tomlin/Passion
After some announcements, a fun game, and prayer for our Haiti missions team, we led a 2-song set including:
“10,000 Reasons” (G) – Matt Redman
“Praise the Invisible” (G) – Daniel Bashta
Our Family Pastor gave a great sermon which focused on his personal testimony and story. It was captivating and stirring.
We closed with “How Great is our God” (G) and a simple chorus of “How Great Thou Art”.
It was perfect weather for the event. The weather was supposed to include 20-30 mph winds but the winds held back until we were done. A nice breeze was present to keep the gnats away and it was sunny … just a GORGEOUS day.
