Set List – 06/18/17

highlights: We sang We Fall Down from our knees and it was very humbling for me. After reflecting on Psalm 95:6-7, we kneeled before God together and offered Him our crowns. None of us laid down the same "crown." For some, it was "good health" or "getting my dream job." For others, it was "control of…Read more Set List – 06/18/17

Set List – 06/04/17

highlights: This was a notably more connected Sunday morning, I'd say. Ryan did a great job of tying his sermon to the songs before and after it. I intentionally choose songs to support the topics and Scriptures that our pastors preach on so it was nice to hear/feel validation on this effort from Ryan. Yay for teamwork.…Read more Set List – 06/04/17

Set List – 05/28/17

highlights: We dedicated five minutes to mingling and grabbing coffee before the sermon started today. People were smiling, chatting with one other and really having a good time. I'm glad that we made a point to make our services more relational. God wants to be in a relationship with us and offers us the opportunity to do so through Jesus.…Read more Set List – 05/28/17

Set List – 04/09/17 (Palm Sunday)

highlights: Hosanna (Praise Is Rising) was hands down the highlight of the morning. We set up the song by reading Matthew 21:6-11. I wanted us to feel the anticipation of our coming King Jesus before singing, similar to how the people at that time might have felt. We closed our eyes together and saw the men, women, boys and girls…Read more Set List – 04/09/17 (Palm Sunday)

Set List – 04/02/17

highlights: Only King Forever is ALWAYS a highlight for me. The song is so anthem-atic (yes, I totally made that word up). The lyrics and feel of the song really energize our church; kind of like how a "we will rock you" chant energizes a crowd at a sports game. The bridge lyrics are probably my favorite in the…Read more Set List – 04/02/17

Set List – 03/19/17

highlights: The bridge of What A Beautiful Name really challenged me this past Sunday. It was one of those morning when things weren't going as planned (which happens more often than not) so I was becoming frustrated. I half-expected our congregation to sympathize with me but when I looked out into the room, I didn't see people really acknowledging me…Read more Set List – 03/19/17

Set List – 03/12/17

highlights: We sang What A Beautiful Name for this first time this past weekend. In classic fashion, Brooke Ligertwood (Fraser) hit another home run with this song. We're currently in our Global Outreach series. The theme, No Longer Strangers, is meant to signify that there are no strangers in the family of God (Ephesians 2:11-22). Salvation through Jesus is not for a…Read more Set List – 03/12/17
