We’re putting a lot of medley’s together recently.  They seem to just flow one to the next.  I guess it’s a good thing.  The congregation seems to like them and God is really moving powerfully.

Hey everyone!

Thanks for tuning in to see what God did today with our congregation.  You have more worship leader’s sites to look at so I won’t keep you long.  You can see them here: http://www.fredmckinnon.com. Today we had 4 baptisms and from what I could tell at altar time, God is moving in a powerful way.  Lots of people were praying down front, some were crying with others.  It was a beautiful time watching God move on the hearts of our congregation.

This was the first time doing this one in church.  We have been introducing a lot of new songs to our church lately.  3 in the last 2 weeks.  I think they were ready for the new songs.  Some of the songs we had been doing for a while.  If nothing else it is refreshing as a praise team to do new stuff.  What do you think?

For This Cause – Hillsong

We’ve don this one before, but it sure has been a long time.  Great song!

Greetings from a very hot Palestine, Texas.  It’s like 104 degrees outside right now, but in church God brought a refreshing wind to us.  As always this is a part of Sunday Setlists over at Fred’s site, www.fredmckinnon.com Evangelistic Temple now has a twitter account, www.twitter.com/etpalestine so follow them and you’ll see more what goes on in our church.

Here is the setlist:

Walk In:  Burn For You -Fee

This is probably the last week we do this one for a while since we have done it for the last 3 weeks in a row.  But when it fits the message, you go with it.

God You Reign – Lincoln Brewster

Lift High – Fee

Prayer/Offertory

I Will Rise/Jesus Messiah (Yes, a medley!)- Chris Tomlin

Message: Dr. Barry Roberts

Altar:

Rescue – Jared Anderson

This is the last Sunday that our main worship team is going to play until August.  The C-Team, (which is a misnomer) they just happen to be the last team put together, is taking over July.  The main team has been non-stop for the last 6 years just about every Sunday.  So the break is much needed.  We should come back with an intense focus and drive to see our God’s will be done in a mighty way.  We aren’t staying idle with music though.  July 7th we go to the studio to record. Pray for us.

See ya soon,

BRAD
