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

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 6.7.2009
June 7, 2009

Greetings to everyone!  

Sorry we missed out of Sunday Setlists last week.  The praise team had the week off.  But we were back in full force today at Evangelistic Temple in Palestine, TX.  There was an amazing message given by our senior high youth pastor, Jason Harris.  It was a hard but good.  Anyone else have someone tell it like it is in church?

Alright, to the setlist:

Walk In: Hosanna – Paul Baloche (We did the PK7 version)

Jesus Messiah – Chris Tomlin

Sweetly Broken – Jeremy Riddle

This is a new one for us.  The C-team got to be the ones that debuted this last week to our congregation.  I heard that they did a great job.  Way to go C-team.  We love this song.  In fact it’s still in my head even as I type this.

Prayer/Offertory

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) – Chris Tomlin

Hallelujah – Ben Cantalon

This one has really been anthemic recently.  Today, lots of people came forward as it began, just to stand in the front of the platform with their hands in the air.  I had to play the guitar, otherwise my hands would have been in the air too.

Message: Jason Harris

Altar/Communion

The Wonderful Cross – Michael W. Smith

There you have it.  Thanks for stopping by.  As always, you can go to www.fredmckinnon.com and check out what other worship pastors and churches did for their Sunday Setlist too.
