The Downbeat 8.16.2009
August 16, 2009

Ever had one of those Sundays where everything is just kicking?  That is what happened today at Evangelistic Temple, but it started last weekend and continued into this one.  There were 10 baptisms this morning!  What a testament to what God is doing here in our church.

I’m excited to say that this blog is a small part of Fred’s Sunday Setlist blog over at his website www.fredmckinnon.com

The Players:

Darren Goodman – lead vocals

Cavin Dorsey – Bass/music director

Jason Stringfield – Drums

Danna Hafner – Keys/bgvls

Vicki Stringfield – keys

Terry Garner – Acoustic

Brad Hafner – Electric Guitar

Walk In: Bless Your Name – Jeremy Riddle

Pastor’s Greeting

Everlasting God – Brenton Brown

Mighty to Save – Laura Story (We played the Michael W. Smith version)

Today was the first time that we played this one for our congregation.  It was received very well.  In fact this is the first of 2 new songs that we introduced today.

Prayer/Offertory

Testimony: Glenna Kenner

It’s so cool when God uses something like praise team rehearsal to answer prayers.  That was the case earlier in the week with this next song.  Glenna had been listening to this song for a while in her car and praying about a new ministry that God put on her heart.  God has been more quiet to her as of late and then she heard us practicing this last Tuesday night.

While I’m Waiting – John Waller (from the Fireproof soundtrack)

Message:  Dr. Barry Roberts – “Engaging our Culture” Part 1

Barry delivered a great message.  If you want to hear it go to www.etpalestine.com and click on sermon connect.

Altar:

In Need – Ross King

Here I Am To Worship – Tim Hughes

There was at least another salvation declared today at the end of the service.  Sometimes it is hard to hear with the in ear monitors.

Thanks for tuning in to the blog.  Leave me a comment if you wish.  You can also find me on Facebook (bradhafnersfa) or on twitter (fit2praise).

Keep the Son in your eyes,

BRAD
