Sunday Recap – March 13, 2011

It was another full morning at Bethel yesterday, with a new song in the Cafe and Contemporary, the Worship Choir, and the first use of the ukulele ever!  We continued our series through Romans, with the main question today being “Does God Gives Up on People?”  from Romans 2.   This post is part of the Sunday Setlist blog carnival at The Worship Community.


Contemporary Service

We had the Worship Choir sing along with the team this week, and we also introduced a new song – “All To Us” by Chris Tomlin.  We had a little trouble getting up on the platform in time after our prayer time before the service. The countdown reached zero just as we were getting up on the platform – Ooops! But, everyone did a great job – Jake on bass; Zack on electric; Marv on guitar; Adam on keyboard; Christina on drums; Susan, Susie and Michael on vocals with the choir; plus the incredible tech team of Katy, Adam and Florian! You can watch the video of this service and also see the Planning Center details.

“Let The Praises Ring” (Lincoln Brewster)

“Better Than Life” (Cindy Cruse-Ratcliff and Israel Houghton)

“Forever Reign” (Jason Ingram and Reuben Morgan)

“All To Us” (Matt Maher, Matt Redman, Jesse Reeves and Chris Tomlin)
– We introduced this song from Chris Tomlin today with the team and choir.  I would call this song a modern-day hymn. Don’t let the title throw you off, like it did me! This song has a great message, and its focus is all on God!

“You Never Let Go” (Matt Redman and Beth Redman)

Cafe Connection Service

Adam led the team this week in the Cafe, along with a great team of Zack on percussion, Jake on acoustic bass and ukulele (yes!) and Sue on vocals.  They introduced a new song called “Lift High” by Fee. For our percussion we have a set of congas , some shakers, and a cajon (box).  Well, Jake and Zack have rigged up a way for Zack to play them all at the same time! You’ll have to watch the little video below to see how they were able to do that! Pretty ingenious if you ask me. You can also see the Planning Center details for this service.

“Lift High” (Steve Fee and Eddie Kirkland)

– This is a great song! I intended to introduce it, but Adam beat me to it, and chose to use it in the Cafe, which is great!

“Praise Adonai” (Paul Baloche)

– Here’s a little video first showing Zack and Jake’s creation of using a kick drum with a cajon so Zack can play both the cajon and congas at the same time, then how we put it to use on “Praise Adonai”

“Amazed” (Jared Anderson)

“You Alone Can Rescue” (Matt Redman and Jonas Myrin)

Traditional Service

This service isn’t a blended service usually, but today I included the song “In Christ Alone” by Keith and Kristyn Getty, and it seemed to go over very well! Jana did a great job playing the pan flute part on the keyboard, and the singers sounded great.  You can see the Planning Center details for this service.

“Praise Him! Praise Him!”

“We Will Glorify” (Twila Paris)

“My Faith Has Found A Resting Place”

“I Know Whom I Have Believed”

“In Christ Alone” (Keith and Kristyn Getty)

“Now I Belong To Jesus”
