Sunday Recap – May 6, 2012

Contemporary Services

Once again, God was gracious, and we had a wonderful morning of worship today at Bethel! The only hiccup was that my voice almost gave out in the middle of the second service, but I believe God answered the prayers of the team between services and sustained my voice through the morning.  I loved using “The Same Love” again; it was the second time we’ve used it, but the first time with the congregation.  We used it right after the message before communion.  You can watch the video of this service and see the Planning Center details.

Cafe Connection Service

Marv led the team in the Cafe this morning, and they did a super job! It was a full team, which was great to hear! Special shout-out to Chris and Makenzie who had a very early morning on sound and Easy Worship after spending last night at the prom! What dedication!  You can see the Planning Center details for this service.

Traditional Service

  • “Come Thou Almighty King”
  • “I Will Sing the Wondrous Story”
  • “At Calvary”
  • “Jesus Paid it All”
  • “Lamb of God” (Twila Paris)

The Traditional Service team did a great job as well today in their service. You can watch the video and see the Planning Center details for this service.

The Same Love – Paul Baloche

The Same Love – Paul Baloche

I am a huge Paul Baloche fan, and I look forward to each new release from Paul, hoping to find many new songs to be used for our church.  His latest album, The Same Love, releases in stores today and digitally on April 3rd, and it is amazing!  I’ve had the chance to listen to the album for a few weeks now, as I was preparing to write a review of it for All About Worship.

Here’s just a short excerpt of my review:

“From the opening few bars of piano on the first track, the title song, you can tell this album is going to be an adventure into new territory for Baloche. Cowritten with Michael Rossback, “The Same Love” invites us with a fresh, new sound to remember that God is calling us all by name with “The same love that set the captives free/The same love that opened eyes to see”.    Paul says of the creative process behind this album, “You’re trying to go places you’ve never been, deeper into ancient truths, stirring up your modern soul, if you will.” The result of this exploration is a progressive, yet familiar sound for Baloche, mixing all of these different elements of harmony, chords, lyrics, melody and vibe.”
