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.”

Pure Praise

Here’s a message from my friend, Fred McKinnon.

pure_praise_144REMINDER – Join worshipers from all over the world in the “Pure Praise” devotional study, starting next week!

Hey everybody, I blogged about this a couple of weeks ago, but will be reminding you all over the next week.  Join us over at  TheWorshipCommunity.Com for a meaningful, in-depth study of God’s Word through “Pure Praise”, a heart-focused Bible study on worship by Worship Leader and Author, Dwayne Moore.

This is a 9-week study that we will begin the week of January 12, 2009. Each day we will share our thoughts on the daily devotional and then participate in the Group Discussions each week – as a group of united worshipers on TheWorshipCommunity.Com in the forums.
(daily and weekly discussion will take place in this thread of the TWC Forums)

“The goal of this study is not to help us fall more in love with worship. Rather, these daily, intimate encounters with God can help us fall more in love with our Father – which is the very essence of biblical worship”. (Darlene Zscheck, Hillsong Church, Australia)

“Dwayne Moore has a desire to see the body of Christ truly understand what it means to honor God with our worship and let our lifesongs sing to God in spirit and in truth”. (Mark Hall, Casting Crowns)

“Dwayne Moore’s ‘Pure Praise’ gets at the heart of true biblical worship. If you’re looking to grow your worship ministry team in it’s understanding and desire to worship our Creator in spirit and truth, this book is for you. The weekly studies are practical, insightful, and full of biblical wisdom aimed at getting the reader to grasp how our Creator designed us to worship. This book is a must-read for any worship ministry team, and I’m glad to recommend it”. (Rick Muchow, Pastor of Worship, Saddleback Church)

“Dwayne Moore has a writing style that makes you feel like he’s right there with you, walking you through each devotional. ‘Pure Praise’ is highly relational and delivered in a way that will minister to you in your personal worship journey as well as find its way into your worship training resource library. This book will help you understand not only the meaning of worship, but also provide you with real tools for leading and ministering in your role as the worship leader.” (Julie Reid, former Executive Editor of Worship Leader Magazine)

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to study with your fellow worshipers.
