Weekend Setlist: May 1st/2nd

Not sure if I am leading worship on Sunday yet, but I’m definitely on for Saturday.  So here is what we are looking at this weekend at the Utica Campus of Redeemer.tv.

You Deserve (G)

Happy Day (C)

I Will Sing of My Redeemer (G)

Hope of All Hearts (C)

Stronger (C)

We are currently finishing up a series called Redeemed.  We spent the last few weeks listening to stories of redemption.  At our Utica campus we have heard testimonies from Ken Mansfield, Charlie and Judy Pucillo (church leaders), and Michael Franzese.  This has been a great way to really drive home what Jesus Christ did for us in His death, burial, and resurrection.

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: 7/11 – 7/12

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 another great weekend at church.  Since our worship pastor was out of town last weekend and will be out of town through next weekend I am picking up an extra weekend this month.  I am blessed because I have strong teams around me and for most of the services I will have at least one person leading with me.  The only obstacle we have had to really deal with is the conflict that summer and volunteering brings.  There has been a lot of swapping and playing with the schedule.  Anyone else dealing with that?

Over the last 2 summers our sermon series have centered around one book.  This summer we choose the book of James.  This shouldn’t be too bad for developing set lists for the weekends.  This weeks sermon was more of an introduction to the book of James.  With the set list we decided to focus on our response to adverse situations that sometimes fill our lives.  As Christ-followers our response to adversity should be different from those who are not following Christ.  We always have a reason to give God praise.

Sunday Setlist: 7/5

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.

Last week we brought an end to our Satan’s SexED series and with yesterday being the 4th of July we decided to do a patriotic service.  We built the entire service around moving people to a place of thankfulness, prayer, and thinking about others as we celebrated this Independence Day.

I am really proud of all of the people who brought this service together, but I am really thankful for the worship team.  Everyone really contributed to pulling this off.  I am blessed with so many great musicians, but more than musicians great followers of Christ.  I actually was having a hard time getting out the door this morning.  Things were a bit hectic, but the team really rallied around me.  It was great.

Sunday Setlists: 6/27 and 6/28

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 was the last weekend of our Satan’s SexED series and I would say that this has been a great success.  To test the waters we kept this to 3 weeks and based on the response we are definitely going to do this again.  It’s such an important topic and as the church we need to address it on a regular basis.  This weekend Harry Flanagan from Pure Desire Ministries was our speaker.  The main idea he tried to communicate was that we need to find our value in who God created us to be and not in our performance.

This weekend was a little hectic, but things went really well.  Saturday, we added a second electric to the mix.  It was a great add on, but we had to be mindful of our stage volume.  Not as many people in the room as there are on Sunday’s so decibels are not sucked up as easily .  Sunday was a little crazy because I was late.  I live about and hour and a half away from our Albany campus.  The team was great though.  They were prepared and ready for me.  We had a great soundcheck and service went well.  I’ve been trying to be intentional about being more engaging with the people I am leading each week.  I need to remember that I am there to worship, but I am also leading the way for everyone else.

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.

This was the 4th week of our Greater Than series and like the previous 2 weeks we had a testimony.  This week we had the testimony of convicted serial killer David Berkowitz who after ten years in prison found something Greater Than the horror of his crimes and the shame and guilt that he lives with.  Even though this was a video it was powerful and people seemed very responsive.  

Musically, I led at the Saturday evening service this weekend.  We had a small band and the team did a great job.  It was a little hectic because for this weekend we needed a larger projection screen and a brighter projector.  Which was delivered around 4 pm and service started at 6 pm.  We got everything installed about 5:20ish with enough time for a soundcheck.  Even in the midst of the craziness we were able to really worship.  The congregation seemed very responsive.  Overall, it was a great service.

This week we were continuing Greater Than series.  This has been such a great series.  This week we heard the testimony of Annie Lobert.  Annie spoke about how she overcame the hurt, abuse and the rejection and found her answer to life’s big equation.  Now Annie runs a ministry called Hookers for Jesus.  She describes this ministry as an is an international, faith-based organization that addresses the realities of human sex trafficking, sexual violence, and exploitation linked to pornography and the sex industry.  As we walked away from this weekend my wife said that she really appreciated how genuine Annie was and how she was not just here to preach a sermon, but to share her passion and what drives her.  If you ever get a chance to hear Annie’s testimony I encourage you to do so.

So here is what the weekend looked like:

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

Hosanna (G) – Paul Baloche 

Jesus Paid it All (B) – Kristian Stanfill Arr.

Overcome (B) – Jon Egan 

Announcemnets

Video Bumper: On the Way to the Cross by the Skit Guys 

Sermon: Annie Lobert

Closing song: Make You Feel My Love – Written by Bob Dylan; Adele Arr.  

This was a great weekend.  I led at 3 of our services with 2 different teams.  It was also nice to have someone leading with me this weekend.  I really like having a female vocal during the verses of Jesus Paid it All.  I have to give a shout out to our Saturday night team.  We used some of the students from the youth ministry and they did a great job.  Musically, things were pretty good.  There were a couple of missteps, but good.  The Sunday team is definitely getting more comfortable with each other.  

Overall, this was a great weekend.

Sunday Setlists: April 18/19

I am bit late on my post, but better late than never.  We are on week 2 of our Great Than series.  We started this series talking about how our good works cannot fix the problem of sin and we need something that is Greater Than our sin or any ideas that we could come up with to try and fix the problem.  For weeks 2 – 4 we are having real life stories of a mobster, a hooker and a murderer – all of whom found the formula for a guilt-free life involved a greater than equation.  This week our guest was Michael Franzese.

I actually got a weekend off.  We had the Julia Marie Band in this week.  They provided some great music and worship. The band led at 4 of our weekend services.  I really appreciate Julia and the guys that they are so humble and great to work with.  They really have a great spirit about them.  Each service had different time constraints so I will list some of their originals and others we sang.  We also had an artist from our Albany campus painting on a huge 10 x 4 foot canvas during the song Jesus Won It All.  He painted a beautiful portrait of Jesus and His hands outstretched to us.  I will try to post a picture when I get one.  

Originals by the band:

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):
