Sunday Breakdown 11.6.11

This week was different from last week. Some weeks are amazing, some weeks are tougher. This was a tougher week. Coming off the high of last week, for some reason, the energy was much lower this week. It’s interesting to me to see how worship truly is a fluid movement for God’s people. Some moments are extremely intense while others seem to be strained and forced. I’ve been leading worship for almost 15 years and it’s still a challenge and a continual learning experience to try to truly engage and lead the people of God to worship God without manipulating or playing on emotions to try to create false environments. Sorry for the theological dissertation, just some thoughts on my mind about worship.

On another note, we were able to celebrate 6 baptisms this Sunday! There are few things that excite me more in a church environment than to celebrate baptisms! Such an amazing time and an encouraging time to be able to join in with believers as they publicly proclaim and display their obedience and devotion to Christ through the act of Baptism!

Alright, I ramble on…here’s the worship set…

Yours Forever (Hillsong) – Still a fairly new song for LIFE Church. This was the 3rd time to do this song. It has caught on really well so far I think! I definitely look forward to doing it more.

–Welcome/Announcements & Baptisms–

Here and Now (Eddie Kirkland) – Another new song that we’ve been introducing. We did it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and did it again to try to reinforce it. It is a GREAT song. I love the drive and energy of it, especially the bridge!

Yours Is The Victory (Newspring Worship) – Amy led this and did a great job. One thing I’ve noticed about this song though is that sometimes it’s tough for the people to engage with it and it becomes more of a performance song rather than a corporate worship song. It’s a powerful song when people truly connect with it and worship through it!

You Never Let Go (Matt Redman) – A long time favorite of LIFE Church and of mine. In light of talking about baggage from the experiences that have happened to us, we used this a transition into the message, declaring that no matter what may happen to us, God will never let go!

–Jason’s Message–

With Everything (Hillsong) – Love, Love, Love this song. “For You our King, with everything, we will shout forth Your praise!”

 

That was our Sunday. Tell me about yours. If you were here, tell me about it. If you weren’t, tell me about it!
