Metro Gnome Chronicles 9.27.09
September 27, 2009

Greeting to everyone out there.  I appreciate you stopping by to see what music we did and, more importantly, what God did today at Evangelistic Temple in Palestine, Texas.

You can also see what other worship leaders did at http://www.fredmckinnon.com/myblog/2009/09/27/sunday-setlists-62/

Here’s the list:

Let the Praises Ring – Lincoln Brewster

Father Spirit Jesus – Casting Crowns

Bless His Name – Jeremy Riddle

Mighty to Save – Morgan

Hear Us From Heaven – Jared Anderson

Message – Jason Harris

Altar

Revelation Song – Kari Jobe

I really lack the words to describe how today’s service went.  Lots of people came down at the end of the service.  Some joined the church, one received Christ for the first time. Just an amazing day in our Lord.  I think it started last night with a gentleman in is late 60’s accepting Christ and getting baptized.  He’s sat in our church forever!  No one knew that he wasn’t saved.  Don’t be lulled to sleep in your churches out there people! Christ is alive and doing some awesome things!

Keep the Son in your eyes,

BRAD

The Downbeat 6.14.09
June 14, 2009

Hello friends!

It’s that time again.  Sunday Setlists is now in it’s 4oth- something week of going on now.  That is just crazy!  I think I have missed 1 out of the last 30 or so.  Make sure to check out what everyone did at www.fredmckinnon.com, especially if you’re looking to introduce new songs to your congregation for praise and worship.  It’s a great resource.

This week is the first week of the “Life Unchained” series of sermons in June by Dr. Barry Roberts.  If you missed last weeks sermon entitled “It’s not for everyone” by Jason Harris.  Listen to it here: http://www.etpalestine.com/podcast.html It is a message that the entire church needs t hear.  Very powerful about how our American culture has snuck into and changed what the Bible actually says.

Alright, alright!  Here is the setlist from today:

Walk-In Burn for You – Fee

This was the first time we played this one for our congregation.  They seem to like it.  Obviously U2 influenced!  The first couple of listens to it and I was thinking “Where the Streets Have No Name” and the chorus to “I Will Follow” also could be sung as background vocals in there.  Great tune and a lot of fun to play if you’re an electric player with the dotted eighth note delay going.

Revival – Robin Mark

It has been a long time since we’ve done this one.  It’s at 140 bpm at 10 minutes long and poor Jason is keeping up with Metro Gnome pretty well but being worn down pretty quickly!  Sidenote here.  If your band isn’t playing with a metronome, it’s a great idea to start.  We attended the East Coast Worship Conference last June and Michael W. Smith’s drummer taught a class.  He said, “I will not play a single beat without a metronome in my in ears!”  That guy’s a big time pro and plays with one!  Oh yeah, and it’s made our drummer better!

You Are Enough – Eoghan Heaslip

Prayer/Offertory

Hear Us From Heaven – Jared Anderson

Yearn – Shane and Shane

Message – Dr. Barry Roberts “Life Unchained”

Altar:

Revelation Song – Kari Jobe

Thanks for dropping in and checking out what we do.  May God continue to bless your efforts at your church.

Keep the Son in your eyes,

BRAD
