My Worship Confessional for SSCC

I’m excited to be blogging today – I took a sabbatical from “social media” for the last half of this week, so it’s good to be back.

I really enjoyed our worship times at SSCC this morning.  We were focusing on the “younger brother” … the prodigal son and his story from Luke in our “Lost + Found” series.

Walk-in:  “Glory to God Forever” (Fee/Beeching)
Opening Song:  “Love the Lord” (Lincoln Brewster)

Announcements/Transition:
I usually don’t do announcements if I’m leading worship but it was one of those Sundays where we needed to keep things moving.  As a result, I did announcements and moved into a time of reading from Psalm 33 where we encouraged everyone to rejoice in the Lord.  This brought us to the second set:

“Blessed Be Your Name” (Redman)
“How Great is our God/How Great Thou Art” Medley

Closer:
“Home” (Daughtry) … no kidding, this was a great closer on the Prodigal son story.  We revised a couple of lyrics but kept the overall integrity of the song and people really seemed to connect.  From there we moved into “Sing to the King” as a victory/celebration song to end on a really high note.

For those who are using Twitter, be sure and tag your tweets, pics, and videos with the #sundaysetlists hashtag … below are the most recent twitter postings from those participating:

And that’s it for us … I look forward to seeing your links … link to your blog post review (not the homepage)!

  1. Harvest.org sang “Blessed Be Your Name” today. I should have done it Friday; I think I’ll do it next week.

    Hope your leader retreat was awesome!

  2. Gary Durbin says:

    I love that you used a secular song to illustrate a point. So relatable for people.

    1. Thanks, Gary … we don’t go out of our way to do it, but hey … when it works, it works. This song was PERFECT, and being such a popular song, it will resonate with people in a totally different and much more significant way now when they hear it!

  3. Too cool …

    We did a How Great Is Our God / How Great Thou Art medley.

    Have a great week everyone.

    …Randy

    1. I guess we were on the same “wave” this weekend!

  4. Eddy Mann says:

    Had a sweet medley momment with Baloche’s “Above All and “You Gave It All Away”

  5. HL McConnell says:

    Can’t wait to do “Glory to God Forever”. Love what you do Fred. Your a blessing brother.

    HL

  6. Brad Hafner says:

    We did Blessed be Your Name as well. Seems like a trend here!

  7. Lori Biddle says:

    Yeah Daughtery! You go Fred!

    Great weekend!

  8. “Back to the place where I belong, and where your love has always been enough for me.” It’s a beautiful song – great creativity in using it to honor the Lord.

    You’re an out-of-the-box kind of guy, Fred! I like that!

    1. Harold,
      Yeah .. and “i don’t know why, but you always give me a second try” …

      The lyric we changed is:
      I’m not running from, I think you’ve got me all wrong .. I don’t regret this life I chose for me”.

      We sang, “I’m running from, ’cause before I got it all wrong. And I regret this life I chose for me” …

  9. Hi gang,
    Here’s another “How Great Thou Art”. lol.
    And Fred, I always love a good secular song…connection works…

  10. Bj Collins says:

    We rolled out “Glorious One” by Steve Fee for the first time at Central Highlands and Homestead Park churches. The song was very well received at both churches, and we plan on singing it again next weekend. This was our second week singing “God Of This City,” with the congregations, and by the third chorus, the people who sing along with us were singing loudly, and the people who never seem to sing seemed pretty captivated. We fattened up the vocals a bit compared to the Tomlin version, adding a third harmony part. Great weekend of worship!

  11. MandoRon says:

    What an awesome setlist Fred. We use Home quite a bit, although mostly at non-church events. Good song.

  12. Eric Frisch says:

    I’ve been away for a long time, but finally got back to it this week! Just posted our recap… we had a great morning even though our pastor had to call off sick at the last minute!

  13. Marcus Lynn says:

    HOME!? Great idea…we’re going to use that parable in a few months so I’ll have to keep that idea. Thanks!

    sorry I’m so late–it’s been a crazy day–but a good day. Great worship today… now some quick rest and off to the Mountains of New Mexico (Glorieta) for Senior Adult Week and Balloon Fest! Be blessed!

  16. It’s good to be back after a two week vacation!

    We wrapped up the service tonight at Pine Lodge Corrections Center for Women with “Blessed Be Your Name”; always a good reminder to praise the Lord regardless of what is going on or where your are.

    thanks for this great resource! I look forward to it every week

  19. Al Dancy says:

    Home is a great tune. I’ll bet it really hit the point of the message. It’s amazing what God can use to touch people’s hearts.

  20. I am WAITING for us to do a message so I can do “Home”. Great song, Fred!

  21. Kyle says:

    Had to take evasive action as we had equipment failure moments before the set was starting.

  22. daniel john says:

    Welcome back from the sabatical. I love that you did the song “Home” and what an excellent tie-in to the message!

  23. Paul J. says:

    yes, I’m still alive.
