Set List – 07/02/17

highlights: I was back in the saddle leading worship music this past weekend and it felt awesome. I think my "Sunday off" provided some much needed rest. I didn't know it at the time, but I felt notably more rejuvenated and refreshed going into the morning. Each service felt right. In fact, one of the…Read more Set List – 07/02/17

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 – 05/14/17

highlights: We had baptisms during both of our services last weekend; a lot of them (something like eight per service). Our pastoral team worked really hard to make sure that the baptisms were connected with everything else going on during the services. We didn't want to reduce the baptisms to just an "add on," but instead as an…Read more Set List – 05/14/17

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 – 04/09/17 (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 – 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 – 02/26/17

highlights: Brooke Ligertwood (Fraser) writes some amazing music. I have to be honest; I'm not a huge fan of every song put out by Hillsong (surprise, surprise), but the songs that I tend to connect with most are usually stamped by Brooke. She is a really gifted songwriter that knows how to blend sound theology with melody (which…Read more Set List – 02/26/17
