Sunday Morning Recap – 11-22-09

We’re halfway done with the songs for today as I’m typing this. We had a great time of worship this morning, and tonight we have our Pie and Praise service for Thanksgiving.

We started our morning service with:

“Rising” (Paul Baloche) and
“Let the Praises Ring” (Lincoln Brewster)
 – Our electric guitar player, Zack, did a great job on the solo on that one!

After the welcome, we did:
“Shaken” (Tony Guerrero)
 – It’s been a long time since we’ve done this one, but it’s a great song!
“This Is How We Know” (Matt Redman)

Then, during the offering, we did “I’d Need A Savior” (Among the Thirsty) as special music.  I’ve heard this song on the radio, and love it! A gal from our church asked about singing it, and even though I only had a chord chart (I usually have the lead sheet and vocal parts), we did it.  They did a great job!

We ended with “Love The Lord” (Lincoln Brewster).

Tonight for our Pie and Praise service we’ll be doing:

“Because of Your Love” (Paul Baloche and Brenton Brown)
“For All You’ve Done” (Reuben Morgan)

“We Will Remember” (Tommy Walker)

“How Great is the Love” (new song by Paul Baloche and Meredith Andrews)

“You Never Let Go” (Matt Redman)

Thanks, and I look forward to reading through all of your posts! If you would like to read about today’s setlists from other churches around the country, visit the Sunday Setlist Blog Carnival at

Update – Well, I need to add an update to my recap. It’s now later Sunday night, after the Pie and Praise service. The testimonies were great to hear! The team did a great job on the songs! But, we had major technical issues!  Partway through “We Will Remember”, I noticed hardly anyone was singing, and everyone looked confused.  Wouldn’t you know – the “Lamp Replacement” light came on the screen, so right in the middle of the song, people saw our reminder that it’s time to replace the lamp. After that, the lamp basically failed.  Our video guy tried to turn it back on a few times, but it just kept on turning off.  So, needless to say, that put a damper on the focus and attention of many people.  

That’s on top of a strange event we had earlier this morning. Our main video feed cable somehow got wound up and stuck in a wheel on the sound board chair.  So, that chair was off limits this morning. The cable was already frayed, and we could not get it out of the wheel!

So, we have some major technical issues to work on this week.  But, God is good, and people knew “You Never Let Go” enough so we all could end with a great time of worship.
