Youth Worship Teams at SSCC

Sunday Setlists

This Sunday was a special day for us at St. Simons Community Church.  As we’re closing out the Summer we had a “youth sunday”.  Blake and Russ, our student ministry worship leaders, led a wonderful group of your youth musicians and singers in a fantastic set.

It wasn’t just the music that was youthful – the message was given by our two youth pastors, Beau and Justin.  We had students share testimonies and inspire us with what God is doing in their lives.  It’s so exciting to see what God is doing in the hearts of our young people.

As the Worship Pastor I reminded our guys that even though it’s “Youth Sunday” we still had a diverse congregation that we were responsible to lead.  This meant not being too over-the-top and staying true to our philosophy of multi-generational worship.  I wanted our kids to be themselves but also wanted our church members to connect as well.

The leaders did a wonderful job crafting a setlist that would include some tunes from their world and familiar tunes that we sing on Sundays.  Here’s a run down of the morning:

Walk In:  “My Savior Lives”

Opening Song:  “10,000 Reasons”

Second Set:
“Like a Lion”
“Revelation Song”

Closing Song:  “Set a Fire”

As we left today it was obvious to all that we saw the Church in action — young and old.  To see a generation passionate about Christ stepping up and leading was exhilerating.  I can’t begin to express how proud I am of that team!

I’m posting this recap as a part of the weekly Sunday Setlists event hosted by TheWorshipCommunity.Com.  Check it out for other setlists and ideas.

Sunday Setlists – Worship Recap from SSCC

Hey Everybody!

Yesterday (Sunday, August 8th) was my first time back on the stage, leading worship at SSCC, in a couple of weeks.  It was great to be back.  We started a new series called “Small Steps, Big Faith” and our service didn’t have a “sermon” … just a flow of worship, testimonies, and communion.  Well, we did “kind of” have an impromptu sermon during our 9:00 AM service when one of the pastors lost track of time in his 5-minute “setup” … which turned into 25 minutes!

Thankfully, a little “Campfire Meeting” backstage after that service helped us workout the timing kinks and we nailed the flow in the 11:00 AM service.

Walk In Song:
“Washed by the Water” (NeedtoBreathe)

“Glorious” (Paul Baloche)
“For All You’ve Done” (Hillsongs)
“Amazing Grace/My Chains Are Gone” (Hillsongs)

*Testimony:  I shared a faith-building testimony about prayer.
*Testimony:  One of our pastors, Steve, shared a faith-building story about how God called him into ministry.

“Great is Thy Faithfulness” (Traditional Hymn Version)
*The Lord’s Prayer (corporate prayer)

Communion:
“You Gave Your Life Away” (Baloche)
“Jesus Paid it All” (Northpoint Live Version)
“Christ is Risen” (Matt Maher)

From a technical standpoint, we used a cool backing lyrics video for “Christ is Risen”, which required us to play this song to a click.  The animated lyrics and backgrounds were powerful and added a nice visual dynamic to the worship experience on that song.

We wrapped up our Sunday with a big, family “Beach Night” on St. Simons Island – it was a great day celebrating with other Believers here in the area!
