We tried something different today. Instead of tacking the Lord's Supper on the end, or in the middle or somewhere else, we made it the whole service today. It was very different.
I think people get used to the order of service--two fast songs, announce--offering, song, message--etc. We didn't do it that way this week
Welcome/Announcements--started it off with instructions about the day. Only down side was there was no Official greeting-but maybe we can go a week without that.
Set up Lord's supper service---instructions/teaching about the background of the Lord's supper.
Psalm 100--Congregation Reading--good reading by the congregation--this Psalm would come back later in the sermon about the "psalm they sang" after the supper.
Today Is The Day (Brewster)--good energy here!
Pass It On (Walker)--just a reaffirmation of the Lord's faithfulness to all generations as Psalm 100 said!
Set up The Bread
Worship Choir--Breathe (small but passionate group this morning singing--we had some out with sickness) It was the perfect song to sing after the teaching about the bread.
Jesus Saves (Cottrell)--one of my faves and quickly becoming a fave among the team. David has done such a passionate backing track to this one.
When I Think About The Lord- this is where it really came alive--people singing, and shouting Halleujah! Thank You Jesus!. We haven't done this one in a while.
Set Up The Cup--we had 5 stations around the sanctuary where people came to get the bread and cup.
Remembrance (Maher/Redman)--this is on Matt Maher's new cd and the first time I heard it I knew that I wanted to use it for Communion. Used it in both services...such a powerful message that remembrance leads to worship and worship to communion!
You Have Been So Good (Baloche)--taught this one last week. It was a good response after the commuion!
What Can I Do (Baloche)--another good closer
How was your Sunday?
