Worship Confessional, April 18, 2010

This post is part of Sunday Set Lists over on The Worship Community Blog, where worship leaders post and discuss their Sunday experiences.

Set List

Prepare Our Hearts (Moffitt/Smith)-- I was drawn back to this song this week. We did it for an extended period of time last Spring. It's such a called to repentance and confession and for me a settling song as you begin a worship service. I think so many times we begin worship with a "whip up" and wonder why in the end the worship experience feels "light and fluffy". It's because we've not engaged the heart with the heart of God to begin with. This was our intention today!

Scripture Reading

Rising (Baloche) From the GREATER SONG ALBUM-- I love this one too. "The people of God, in the power of God.. for the Kingdom of God--we sing!" Love it!


Missions Moment--Great Britain. We were pleased to have my college friend, Bryan Kittlitz, who works with OCI mission in Britain, here today to talk about the Mission effort in England. So much of the work there is revitalizing the church and engaging a whole culture that has little or no knowledge of Christianity. We interviewed him in both services and he talked to a Sunday School class.

Christ Is Risen (Maher) Third week on this song.. it's becoming a favorite. I just love the line where it says "O church, come stand in the light..." I just want to scream when that line comes around because it's such a call for the church (the body of christ, not a building) to rise up in power and strength and accomplish the great commission.Publish Post

I Will Sing of My Redeemer/You Set Me Free (Cottrell) We've done this one before--several times--but it's always good to revisit a good familiar song. It's one of my favorites

Morning Message---Walk Straight (Ed Ethridge)

I Surrender All (Hymn Charts)

How was your Sunday?
