Hope you had an awesome weekend.Â For those who missed the announcement last week, I’ve officially relocated the “Sunday Setlists” blog carnival to it’s new home over at TheWorshipCommunity.Com.Â I’ll continue to post our worship service recaps here, but I’d encourage everyone to go over and see all the other recaps from other churches at the weekly “Sunday Setlists” column which is hosted “smack-dab-in-the-middle-of” the homepage at TheWorshipCommunity.Com.
Here’s a snapshot of our worship time at St. Simons Community Church yesterday, Jan 10, 2009:
Walk In:Â “Glorious” (Paul Baloche Version)
* I first heard this song last summer at the National Worship Leader Conference.Â Paul led it and Stan Endicott had a big choir backing him up, and it was just … well, “Glorious”.Â Â The song starts off kind of slow but builds and really grows on you by the end.Â It was the first time using this song at SSCC.
“Love the Lord” (Lincoln Brewster) – a favorite at SSCC
“No Other Name” (Todd Fields, Northpoint Live)
*honestly, we probably “over do” this song, but it’s short, easy, and singable.Â You don’t find many songs like that these days!
Special Music:Â “God Speaking” (Mandisa version) with our own Kim Dixon.Â She did a wonderful job on this challenging song and the band did a fantastic job covering the arrangement.
“Amazing Grace/My Chains Are Gone”
“This is the Gift of God” (Carl Cartee)
“Christ Has Risen” (Matt Maher, love, love, love, love this song!)
It seemed that the congregation was engaged and I had several comments about the special music and the closing song.Â For the first time in a while, I had a complaint about volume.Â This complaint came just before walking on stage to minister that evening which is frustrating.Â I’m not sure why folks have to dump a complaint or suggestion on you just before you are about to minister.Â For all those reading this who feel like you need to make suggestions or complaints to your ministry team, please … wait until after Sunday.
So if you’re reading this … consider leaving your own worship service recap by visiting TheWorshipCommunity.Com.Â You don’t have to blog about it, you can leave your own recap right there in the comments.
