This is my addition to the “Sunday Setlists” blog carnival at FredMcKinnon.Com. Today’s page is http://www.fredmckinnon.com/myblog/2009/10/04/sunday-setlists-63/
This morning there were a lot of firsts, and they all went very well!
We started the service with “Our God Saves” (Paul Baloche & Brenton Brown) followed by “My Savior, My God” (Aaron Shust).
Then, we moved from there into Communion. This was the first first today. Usuallly, we have Communion at the end of the service, but we have been trying to just change up the way we do communion recently. So, instead of tacking it on at the end, I thought we would rather incorporate Communion into the service, and make it more of a highlight during the worship through song time before the message. It worked great, except for a few logistical issues which would need to be worked out if we try it that way again.
During Communion we did “The Wonder of the Cross” (Vicky Beeching) and “Lead Me To the Cross” (Brooke Fraser).
Then, just before the message we introduced a new song that really ties in to our “Salt & Light” series. We did “Follow You” (Leeland Mooring, Jack Mooring, and Ed Cash) off of Leeland’s new CD. It’s really a great song, and we had one of our young guitar players sing the lead on it. We did it as a special today during the offering, but I’m planning to bring it back as we go through this series.
We ended the service after the message with “Mighty To Save” (Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan).
We also had a new worship team singers this morning sing with us for the first time. I love involving new people and discovering/using new talents of current members. I was so pleased with how everyone did this morning. Praise be to God!!
Thanks for reading.
