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 – 06/11/17

highlights: I've found Holy Spirit to be a strong opening song for church. The lyrics really set the mood not only for the worship music set, but for the entire church service. This past weekend was evidence of this. We opened the service with Holy Spirit and afterwards reflected on Romans 15:13. I could feel the room…Read more Set List – 06/11/17

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 – 05/21/17

highlights: My favorite part of last weekend was the band. Everyone playing was God-ordained and I don't say that lightly. It has been difficult finding musicians to play on Sunday mornings, especially as summer approaches. This week in particular was notably more difficult. I made over 30 phone calls to different musicians in the area and no one…Read more Set List – 05/21/17

Set List – 04/23/17 (Last Sunday with Resonate)

highlights: There wasn't really a "highlight" for this past weekend. The only word that most accurately describes it is "unforgettable." It was my last Sunday as the Music & Worship Arts Director at Emmanuel Faith Community Church, aka the Resonate Worship Leader. Emmanuel Faith has been much more than my place of employment. The people who work…Read more Set List – 04/23/17 (Last Sunday with Resonate)

Set List – 04/16/17 (Easter Sunday)

highlights: Glorious Day is THE Easter song. As I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of holiday specific tunes, but this one is an exception. Easter is a BIG deal for Christians. Had not Jesus died and rose again, we would have no hope (1 Peter 1:3-5). Through Him, we celebrate the hope of…Read more Set List – 04/16/17 (Easter 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
