Welcome to the blog, all you Facebooker’s and Tweeter’s!  Glad to have you along for my little Sunday afternoon worship recap.  Today was a little different as we have started  “dry runs” on recording the music portions of our worship services.  Hopefully soon I’ll be able to share snippets of those services with you.

Fred’s website has what other churches around the world did this Sunday as well.  Check that out here:  http://www.fredmckinnon.com/myblog/2009/10/11/sunday-setlists-64/

Now…the moment you’ve all been waiting for……the set list:

Walk In:

For Who You Are – Hillsong

Today was the day to play in the key of B, I guess.  It’s been a little while since we’ve played this one.  This one is much different from the original recording.  We tweeked it to our influences, which are Toto, Journey, Rush and a slew of other bands too.

Bless His Name – Jeremy Riddle

Great tune!  The church really likes this one and they were hungry for a touch from our King today.  It’s always exciting to have a service like this one was.

I Will Rise/Jesus Messiah Chorus only (Medley) – Chris Tomlin

The last time we medley’d these two together was Easter of this year.

Prayer/offertory

Sweetly Broken – Jeremy Riddle

This one is fun for us! Towards the end of the song we go into the “Whoa whoa” part of Journey’s “Faithfully”.  We’ve always said if someone could find a way to make Journey’s music worship, people would worship to it.  We were right!

While I’m Waiting – John Waller

I fell in love with this song the instant I heard it on “Fireproof” while I watched it with my wife.  It’s a rocking song with a great message.

Message: Dr. Barry Roberts

Altar:

I Can Only Imagine – MercyMe

I believe the last time we played this one was at a funeral 2 years ago.  It was funny because for Saturday service we were playing Amazed by Lincoln Brewster.  That one just morphed into this one.  So we added it to the set list this morning.

Dismissal:

Amazed – Lincoln Brewster

See ya next week,

BRAD

Greetings and hallucinations!  

Thanks for stopping by.  I am constantly trying to find a way to make the blog short and to the point so that you can get over to other worship pastor’s blogs to see what they did on Sunday.  If you guys have any ideas on how to make my blog the best bang for you view (this is free afterall) let me know.  Please don’t forget to comment.  I do my best in trying to return the favor if you have a blog or facebook page.  You can see those other worship pastor’s blogs by going here:  www.fredmckinnon.com 

 

Here is how the downbeat happened today at Evangelistic Temple, Palestine, TX:

Walk In: Agnus Dei – Michael W. Smith

Greeting: Dr. Barry Roberts  

Dr. Barry Roberts, Pastor of Evangelistic Temple, Palestine, TX

Dr. Barry Roberts, Pastor of Evangelistic Temple, Palestine, TX

 

 

O Praise Him – David Crowder

Our God Saves – Paul Baloche

This morning, Dayne Weber lead this one.  He knocked it out of the park.

My Saviour My God – Aaron Shust

I am always the one to start this one.  Not usually a problem, but my cat stuck her claw into my ring finger on my fretting hand yesterday and it’s super sore. It’s right where the string and my finger make contact.   Anyway, I made it through and my solo was on the opposite end of suck!  So a good day for me.

Prayer/Offertory

Majesty (Here I Am) – Delirious (We did the PK7 version)

For those of you wondering, PK7 was the band at Promise Keepers 2006 led by Curt Coffield.  I really like their version of this one.  You can go here and listen to it:

http://www.thejesusunderground.com/p-PRO56.html

Jesus Lover of My Soul – Hillsong

Our version of this one is more R&B.  

Sermon: Dr. Barry Roberts

Altar/Closing:

Amazed – Lincoln Brewster

We did have a small issue with a keyboard that decided not to power up.We reshuffled Danna’s Korg Karma for Vicki’s  Korg X-50 before the service started.  Other than that snafu, things flowed well and someone came forward for salvation.  Praise God!  That’s why we do what we do.

Keep the Son in your eyes,

BRAD
