My Worship Confessional for SSCC

So we had a hilarious goof today in our 9:00 service.  Just before the sermon we had a cool sermon intro video that was supposed to play.  Well the guy operating the video presenter had just opened our “livestream” page on the same computer, not thinking about the audio that would be present.  So just as it was time to pull the volume for the sermon intro video you hear this Vaseline commercial that plays for 30-seconds at the beginning of our broadcast on LiveStream … hahaha … thankfully, everybody just laughed it off!

There was a lot happening today so we had a limited amount of music.  I changed things up by doing a jazz instrumental version of “Go Tell it On the Mountain” as our “walk-in” song which was a lot of fun.

Then, we opened up with a traditional version of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing“.

After announcements, we did “Mighty to Save” and a special performance of Downhere’s Christmas song, “How Many Kings“.

Pastor David’s sermon and post-sermon financial update to the church body went a lot longer than planned (although not longer than expected!) so we were unable to do our final song, “Jesus Messiah” … so we did it anyway while people were dismissed.

For the last 4 weeks we’ve had a lot of extra stuff going on … which is OK, but honestly, I’m ready to get back to a regular service.  All the extras make planning a bit more difficult and I just get this feeling that we’re not at our best.  That’s why we call these “worship confessionals”.

    Woo Hoo – I’m first – that is the first thing that went right this weekend! Ha ha…I laugh or I’d cry!

    HVAC – not working
    Key soloist – sang Saturday Sick on Sunday
    Breakers blown – center lighting in the congregation out – no big deal just cannot read BIBLES! aaauuu

    Anyway – Fred I agree, I love Christmas, but, it’s good to get back to regular!

    Today we announced the elders’ hopes for buying a beautiful former Catholic church to become our campus in the Germantown neighborhood of Louisville. It was a good day.

  11. Hilarious. Reminds me of the church I grew up in. a couple times a year our wireless mic system would pick up sighnals from local CB radios. Luckily our sound guys were quick and would cut the volume as soon as they heard outside signals coming through the speakers.

    Vaseline commercial…there is a great conversation just waiting to take place…i hope the 9am crowd was awake enough to laugh!!!

    That’s awsome. Usually with us, the “unintended” audio is a Windows “critical stop” beep that’ll pop up in the middle of a sermon. Always gets a chuckle.
