Better Is One Day/I Can Only Imagine medley – Matt Redman/Mercy Me

We have started back with the Pre-Service music, at the suggestion from our Pastor. It’s humorous, though, because our church really is confused by it still. Some people just look up at the stage with this bewildered look on their face, that screams, “What do we do now?” LOL! But we’re convinced that the more we do this instead of playing a CD before the service, the more people will get what it is… enhanced background music. Do you play Pre-Service music? If so, how does your church respond to it?

My favorite song of the set this week was the Better Is One Day/I Can Only Imagine medley! We played Better Is One Day through the bridge, then one more time through the chorus, and then our pianist started that unmistakable piano ‘lead in’ from I Can Only Imagine while the drummer kept the same beat and tempo from Better Is One Day. We started right into the chorus of I Can Only Imagine… “Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel? Will I dance for You Jesus, or in awe of You be still?” We sang the chorus through two times, and then went right back into the last part of Better Is One Day… “better is one day, better is one day, better is one day, than thousands elsewhere”. Then we brought it way down and ended quietly, and worshipfully on the chorus! It flowed really well, and our church worshiped to it in a powerful way.

What did your church sing on Sunday? Please leave a comment below and let us know! 🙂

Blessings!

    Wayne – I smiled as I read your take on the Walk-in songs. We’ve been doing a walk-in song for about five months now – I actually got the idea from you, after we dropped our troublesome announcement time. We still have a mix of confused looks, people ready to sing and wondering where the words are, etc. but most get it now though. Great medley!

    Dennis – Awesome! Yeah, we dropped the Pre-Service for a about a month and a half due to a conflict with Choir warm-ups 15 minutes prior to the service. But now if any of the vocalists need to warm up with the choir, LeAnn and I will just sing alone during Pre-Service.

    I really like how that music seems to prepare the church for worship more than just a CD playing in the background.
