Sunday Recap – April 22, 2012

Contemporary Services

  • “You Are Holy (Prince of Peace)” (Mark Imboden and Tammi Rhoton)
    • It’s been a long time since we’ve done this song, but I like to pull it out from time to time. Nice song to open with.
  • “Where The Spirit of the Lord Is” (Christy Nockels, Nathan Nockels, Chris Tomlin)
    • I pulled this song out since it fit so well with our theme. I like the song, but I’m not sure it’s the best one for congregational use. I remember that now from when we introduced it a while back. It seems like it should be an easy song for people to sing, but for some reason, people have not engaged with the song any time we’ve done it.
  • “Victory” (Cody Carnes)
    • This is a great song from Gateway Worship! Again, it fit with our theme of freedom in Christ, and so fun to play and sing!
  • “I Am Free”(Jon Egan)
    • I know this isn’t a new song, by any means, but it was the first time we’ve done the song at Bethel.  With the click track from Praise Charts, this was a great way to end the service! I was a bit worried about the high range of the song, but doing it in C helped.  The only tricky part was coordinating the vamp section with the click.

What a great morning! We’re going through a series on Galatians, and we focused this morning on freedom in Christ.  We also had a baptism service at the end and 6 people were baptized! Elisha’s testimony was so powerful, and truly an example of how God changes lives.
