I’m entering this post later than I normally do, but it was a busy Sunday afternoon for me. My Vikings held me at the edge of my seat for over 3 hours, and only to end up with a lot of frustration, disappointment, and sadness. But, I’m proud of them for the great season! So, anyway, now that I can think a bit more clearly, I thought I better keep up with my Sunday Setlist enry for this week.
We’re going through the book of Genesis at Bethel, and this week was Chapter 3 about temptation. You can see the Planning Center info for our service here.
We opened the service with a great video called “Worship Inspiration” by the Steelehouse Media Group. You can purchase the video here. It worked well as a worship opener, giving several quotes and Scripture verses about worship, with inspiring music. When that ended, people seemed anxious to jump up and start praising! We followed that with “The Lord Reigns” by Klaus Kuehn, a great up-tempo opener.
After the Meet and Greet and Announcements, we did:
“Holy Is the Lord” (Chris Tomlin)
“Stronger” (Ben Fielding and Reuben Morgan)
– This was a new song for us this week, and wow – what a great song! This song is in our Easter musical we’re doing this year, “Run to the Cross” by Travis Cottrell. I’m hoping to teach it to the congregation, so when we get to Easter, they’ll know it and can sing out strong!
“Salvation Is Here” (Joel Houston)
After the message, we ended with “Your Grace Is Enough” (Matt Maher/Chris Tomlin’s version).
Overall, it was a great morning. The flow was smooth, the singers and band did a great job. We were missing acoustic guitar this week, because the guy who was supposed to play couldn’t make it to rehearsal because of some bad weather. But, the electric helped to fill in, and it all worked out well.
