I was glad when they said, “Let us go the house of the Lord” Psalm 122:1

How was worship at your church this weekend? Ours was wonderful. Sunday’s are very long and full days for Worship Dude and Dudette.

We are so blessed to serve the Lord in music and worship. After a full morning of worship services, we prepared for our youth choir “Glocal Outreach” happening this week and had rehearsal in the afternoon.

Here’s the songs and a little shop talk.

Traditional Service

  • Praise to The Lord The Almighty
  • Wonderful, Merciful Savior (Choir Anthem)
  • Message: The Grace of Giving
  • Communion:
    • (At The Cross, Nothing But The Blood, O Sacred Head)
  • Oh Master Let Me Walk With Thee

Contemporary Service

  • Lord You Are Good
  • Open The Eyes of My Heart
  • Your Love Never Fails
    • Message: The Grace of Giving
    • Communion
  • Lord I Give You My Heart
  • Have Thine Own Way Lord
  • Lord I Need You
    • Offering
  • You Are I Am
    • Benediction
  • Hold Us Together

Shop Talk

We had a beautiful moment in the Traditional service during communion. John G. Elliott, our accompanist, is such an anointed psalmist! He weaved together a medley of hymns during communion and God’s presence was strong – the choir and the congregation began to sing along spontaneously. Very cool indeed.

The Contemporary service, as always, was a fun place to be, especially for young families.

Team Leadership Tip. Friday night Travis Birch (the contemporary leader) hosted a “new song workshop” at his house. That was a blast We shared a meal, talked a little shop, got to hang out and worked on three new songs.

This was a great solution to a the challenge of scheduling rehearsals with everyone’s busy lives.  The team shared the fruit of that effort on Sunday introducing two new songs.  Excellent.
