Weekend Setlist: 10/17

Leading worship only once this weekend and I have to tell you it feels kind of weird.  Tonight was the first night of our new stage set up.  Things seemed to go very well.  I know that we will have to keep working through things, but I am very pleased with the direction that we are moving.  I am so appreciative of everyone who helped make it possible.  Over the last day we took everything off the stage, rewired the stage, moved every back, tested the lines, started tuning in the system, simple EQ, soundchecked, and led worship.  Busy, but worth it.

Anyways, we are in the middle of our Prodigal God series and this week we were talking about redefining lostness.  Our focus was mainly on the older brother.  Now you might be thinking this story is just about the younger because he was lost?  But what about the older brother?  He was in the father’s house, but he did not want a relationship with the father, he wanted the father’s stuff.  He was all about controlling God.  He was also lost.  Here is the setlist we followed this weekend:

Your Grace is Enough (G) – Chris Tomlin arr.

You Deserve (G) – Matt Crocker and James Dunlop (Hillsong United)

God of Agers (G) – Ben Fielding (Hillsong)

Amazing Grace (E) – Chris Tomlin arr.

Sunday Setlists: 6/20 and 6/21

This post will be part of Fred McKinnon’s blog carnival called Sunday Setlists.  Worship leaders from all over are sharing about what’s happening in their services.

Well, it has been over a month since I have last posted as part of this blog carnival, but I am not going to let that stop me.  We are currently in the middle of a series on sex.  One of the difficulties (besides the obvious) that we found with this series was that Father’s Day fell right in the middle.  We were however able to honor our dad’s and continue this series.  The main focus has been centered around starting the conversation because for too long Satan has dominated it.  It has been a great series and I am glad we took the risk.  I would like to thank Lifechurch.tv and their Open site for providing many of the resources that we used.

I led at 3 of our weekend services.  On Saturday night we did an acoustic set and at the 2 Sunday services we had a full band.  So without delay here is the setlists for the weekend.

Majestic (D) – Lincoln Brewster

(Saturday only) Video element: Gift of Worship by Floodgate Productions (found at Worship House Media)

(Sunday only) Today is the Day (D) – Lincoln Brewster and Paul Baloche

Endlessly (D) – Jon Egan

Everliving God (G) – Raymond Badham

Let My Words Be Few (G) – Matt and Beth Redman

Trying a new element during worship

We are currently in a series called Greater Than > and this weekend we tried to incorporate a new element into our worship service.  During the songs Jesus Won It All, Sing to the King, and My Glorious we had an artist on stage painting a portrait of Jesus.  I want to thank Angel (from our Albany campus) for painting and Matt for putting this together this video.  Great job guys.

Check out the painting

Sunday Setlists: April 11/12

This post will be part of Fred McKinnon’s blog carnival called Sunday Setlists.  Worship leaders from all over are sharing about what’s happening in their services.

We had a great weekend of worship as we gathered together to celebrate the Resurrection.  This year we used our Easter services as a starting place for a new series called Greater Than.  This will be a 6 week series where we talk about how the formula for a guilt-free life involves a Greater Than equation.

I am not sure how many people attended yet, but we were expecting a lot of people and our expectations were not off.  We had 5 services across 3 campuses.  I helped coordinate 4 of the services and co-lead worship at 3 of the services.  We had to be creative on how we structured the services because we have all ready been experiencing some space issues.  Each service was a bit different based on volunteers, space, and time available.  Over the last few weeks the 11 am Sunday service at our Utica campus has been a bit crowded.  So to compensate for this we used the 9 am service as a Family service and this was the only service in which the kid’s participated.  As you will see in my setlist our kid’s ministry Uptown opened the service with 2 songs.  The kid’s choir and dance team did a great job leading us in worship.  We used a video as our transition from the kid’s team to the adult team.  I can’t believe that worked getting so many people on and off the stage in a 2 to 3 minute period.  

Overall, it was a powerful weekend.  I am so proud of our church and everyone who made this weekend possible.  Pastor Mike Jr. did a great job speaking at 4 of the 5 services.  I truly believe that God was greatly honored through our worship and our communication of the Gospel.

Here’s what the weekend at our Utica and Rome campuses looked like (If I get the Albany Campus I will post that one):

Sunday Setlists: March 8th

This post will be part of Fred McKinnon’s blog carnival called Sunday Setlists.  Worship leaders from all over are sharing about what’s happening in their services.

This is a little late for this week, but here we go.  I actually led for our Saturday evening service and 2 of the Sunday morning services.  Each service there was one other person leading with me.  I love co-leading.  This weekend was a great weekend because we stepped out and tried some new things.  We incorporated Communion and a video element into the set.   We got to I Could Sing of Your Love Forever during 11 am service, but not on Saturday night or the Sunday 9 am.  Basically, here is what it all looked like:

Hosanna – G (Paul Baloche)

For Who You Are – G (Marty Sampson)

Here is Love – G (I announced Communion, ask everyone to be seated while we passed Communion and sang Here is Love by Robert S. Lowry, William Edwards, and William Reese)

Communion Video (1:30 seconds) (Starting immediately after Here is Love)

Pastor Mike Led Communion and prayer

Amazing Love – E (Billy Foote)

I Could Sing of Your Love Forever – E (Martin Smith)

Our current sermon series is called WIN.  We are celebrating the WINS that we had last year as a church and talking about what will cause us to have WINS as we move forward.  This week’s sermon focused on maturity and service.
