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

Worship Confessional 2.1.09
February 1, 2009

Thanks everyone for stopping by to check out this weeks worship confessional but what God did comes first.

We had a baptism during the service and 2 came forward for salvation at the end of the service.  Our God is good! AMEN!

Our pastor, Dr. Barry Roberts, was out today.  He is fighting bronchitis.  So please pray that he has a speedy recovery.  Jason Harris, our senior youth pastor, preached today on “Enduring the Pruning”.  Often we like to “set the stage” for the Word.  This Sunday was no different:

 

Forever – Chris Tomlin

Unveil – Jeff Deyo

This is easily one of the bands favorite songs to play and worship to.  There is one lyric in the bridge that makes several of us cry at times while we are playing it.  See if you know which line it is.

Here is a video of Trent Schwartzentruber (Jeff’s guitar player) teaching how he plays the song.

Lift High – Fee

My wife has the privelege of starting this one.  She always does a great job.

Praise You In The Storm – Casting Crowns

Bring the Rain – MercyMe

Message: Jason Harris  “Enduring the Pruning”

Communion:

This Is Our God – David Crowder

Altar:

Be Lifted High – Michael W. Smith

As always, this is part of Fred McKinnon’s sunday setlist. Check it out.
