Sunday Set List – 07/19/09


soundboardsundaysetlist

Today was a very “glitchy” Sunday! From the moment I walked into church and set off the alarm system, I knew it was going to be one of those days! We had lyrics issues on the screens and accompaniment track problems with Special Music. We had a Mom and her two grown daughters up to sing a trio, and when they got up onstage, the tape was at the end of the side it was on, instead of being cued up in the proper place (my fault). Honestly, we don’t use many “cassette tapes” anymore. But as this issue was being resolved there was a solid 2 or 3 minutes of awkward silence in the auditorium. And we talked about this at lunch. It is so strange how people react to silence! They can’t stay silent! Murmuring began, and my Father-in-law (our Pastor) was telling me, as we ate, that he was listening to the things that were being said around him. Some things were sarcastic about the situation, and others were just chatting to break the silence. Nonetheless, he was intrigued by this response in human nature. The more I think about it, so am I. Silence, when we are alone is a very natural thing. I yearn for those moments in my day. It’s where I talk to God and He talks to me. But what is it about silence when we are in a room full of people that freaks us out so much? Haha! Anyway, the tape was corrected, the song went on, and the church was blessed, regardless of the hiccups in our service today.

Here is our setlist:

“You, You Are God” by Gateway Worship

This was our first time singing this song in our church. It was a BLAST! I absolutely loved the tempo, the energy and the response we got from our church on this one! I believe we’ll do it again in a couple of weeks.

“Mighty To Save” by Hillsong

This one’s a classic, and a beloved song in our church.

“Worthy Is The Lamb” by Hillsong

This was another first in our church. We never do two new songs on the same Sunday! But we pulled it off without a hitch. This one is so worshipful! And we flowed seamlessly into Revelation Song out if it. As my son would say it, “It was so bomb”.

“Revelation Song” by Gateway Worship

For me, this song is it. This is the one. This is my very favorite worship song of ALL TIME. And I must say, Worthy Is The Lamb and Rev Song are fraternal twins! What a dynamic duo this was for us today!

So that was it. The day was full of imperfections. But I believe God was glorified and beamed with joy watching us stammer and struggle to lift His mighty Name. “For in our weakness, He is made strong.”

    Looks like a fun set. Do you guys combine any hymnals with your contempoary songs? Or is it a contemporary service?

  • Wayne

    We normally have a blended service. This week was all contemporary, though.

    I’ve had these Glitchy mornings (sounds like Randy on American Idol, “I don’t know dawg…kinda glitchy!”) Anyway…been there! Ahhh silence. I can understand. One morning, I forgot to ask one of our keyboardists to play under our Communion time and thought, “hey, silence will be cool…I’ll let it play out.” I was sitting in the congregation and our pastor couldn’t help himself…he went to the keyboard! Anyway – silence is underrated and unappreciated, for sure.

    Blessings!

    Great set Wayne!
    I completely agree “Revelation Song” is definitely IT for me too.
    “You, You are God” is always a hit for us. The song has great energy as well as great lyrics. Fun song!
    I love it when those glitchy mornings turn out to be awesome times of worship.
