Sunday Morning Recap – 11/1/09

This is my addition to the “Sunday Setlists” blog carnival at FredMcKinnon.Com. Today’s page is

I’m going to have to give a second-hand account of how things went this morning at church, because I was on vacation and actually visited a different church today.  I love getting the chance to visit other churches and just spend time worshiping without having to prepare and be concerned with anything other than worshiping Him! So, that was a nice break this morning.

But, I also heard many wonderful reports about how the team did this morning in my absence. I had someone else lead the team this morning. He’s had many years of experience leading in his former church, but this was his first time here. Jeff did a great job, from what I’ve heard! Thanks, Jeff!

I just finished listening to the CD from this morning and all the band/singers did a wonderful job!

They opened the service with:

“Awesome Is the Lord Most High” – (Chris Tomlin and others…)

The next set was:
“Beautiful One” (Tim Hughes)
“Glory to God Forever” (Vicky Beeching and Steve Fee)

During the offering, they did:
“God of This City”

Then during Communion, they did:
“Once Again” – (Matt Redman)
“You Are My King” – (Billy Foote)

I tried to choose songs that were familiar, and ones they could be led easily without me at the keyboard. Since I normally lead from the keyboard when I lead, it was a nice reminder as I listened to the CD, that it also sounds great when the guitars lead.  I know that’s nothing new, but I tend to forget that I don’t always have to use the keyboard to lead the song.  I don’t feel as comfortable when I’m not behind the keys, but maybe I’m too comfortable. Something for me to chew on. The mix sounded great, and we have some very talented musicians who I know would do a great job!

So, it’s good to change things up once in a while, and I’m so glad Jeff got the opportunity to lead.  

God is good!
