Worship Post-Fessional, Sunday, November 2, 2008

This post is part of Sunday Set List over on Fred McKinnon's site.

Today was an interesting day. There was so much going on in this service. First of all there were some set pieces for this weeks sermon that were large and in charge today. I"ll be blogging about those later this week. We also had an emphasis on the elections and as part of the sermon we handed out little buttons I had made (from here)with "13:1" on them. This was to reflect the passage in Romans 13:1 that says:

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For(B) there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

The set list for this week looked like this:

Let It Rise (Holland) Old school I know--but still a great opener
Only A God Like You (Walker)--another oldie but goodie
Turn/Greet
Welcome--Prayer for Elections
Offering
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus (Hymn)
Center (Charlie Hall)

Message
God of This City (Passion Version) with this video-this was our first time ever to do this song.

Our God Saves (Baloche)
Dismiss--God of This City-Band

First SERVICE (Traditional)--Our Senior Adult choir led. They began by singing JESUS IS COMING SOON!. We weren't trying to be prophetic--it is just a song we've been working on in the collection we have. "Troublesome times are here..."--Ok, maybe it is prophetic!

So, how was your Sunday?

We do Center too. How do you feel about the verses in comparison to the chorus?

Do you have a custom worship project? Upload it to worshipsong.com. It's a free site to share songs and chord charts with literally thousands of worshippers around the world.

WHAT IS THE VISION - The vision came through a conversation I had with Pastor Chuck Smith (Founder of the Calvary Chapel Movement) - to provide an outlet for worship songs where worship leaders can hear the entire song and download a chord chart for free - to teach it in their church.

Here are some of the things you can do...

1. You can sell mp3's - all you need is a PayPal account
2. You can sell lead sheets
3. You can make playlists (setlists) and email them to your worship team with all the charts attatched
4. You can create your own personal online "radio" station and embed it into your website
5. You can embed any song into your myspace, facebook, blogger, wordpress, whatever
6. You can upload videos and music
7. You can increase your visibility on CCLI as other churches start using your songs!!!

How much does it cost? It's free to listen and a small fee to sell.

Check it out....

Our God Saves is a great song. We did it as a closer and it seemed a little out of place there. Probably best as an opener type of song

Cynthia-
Only a God Like you is truly one of those songs that you can bring back any time and it's gonna work.

Thanks for checking out our list.

The verse is very different from the chorus. Our people sing the chorus well...I'm not so sure on the verse---may be to repetitive note wise (Your the center of the universe)

And..some songs aren't meant for congregational singing..they're personal worship songs. We need to keep that in mind during song selection.
