Neil continued with part 2 of Read. Listen. Respond. Join us as we read through the New Testament this year. The readings will be posted on the blog, and you can sign up there to get a daily email.
I led worship in the 2nd and 3rd services yesterday.
2nd-3rd service team: Aaron on drums, Brady on bass, Mitch on electric guitar, Cris on B3 and keys, Linda on piano, Philp on acoustic guitar and vox, Danielle and Bren and vox, Travis on acoustic guitar and vox, and our vocal team - Alana, Dana, Lea, Ann, Lisandro & Charlie.
Setlist (song titles link to iTunes):
- Glory to God Forever - Fee [Bb] - I *think* this song is starting to catch on. Regardless, I'm enjoying it! We're doing it again next Sunday, so we'll see.
- Jesus Paid It All - Kristian Stanfill [Bb] - Of all the hymn adaptations, I have 2 favorites. This one and Amazing Grace My Chains Are Gone. I love this refrain O Praise the One Who paid my debt/And raised this life up from the dead.
- Take My Life (Holiness) - Sonicflood [F] - Since the message was about being changed by God's Word, this chorus felt like a great fit: Take my heart and form it/Take my mind transform it/Take my will conform it/To Yours to Yours oh Lord.
- Amazing Grace My Chains Are Gone - Chris Tomlin [F] - My other favorite hymn adaptation! My chains are gone/I've been set free/My God, my Savior has ransomed me/And like a flood His mercy rains/Unending Love/Amazing Grace.
- Offering Song: Word of God Speak - Mercy Me - [Bb] Sometimes the obvious choice just works.
- Response Song: Ancient Words - Someone asked me after church about the lyrics. Here's a link to the lyrics for the Michael W. Smith version. On verse 2b we used the alternate lyrics from Lynn Deshazo's original: Martyr's blood stains each page/They have died for this faith/Hear them cry through the years/Heed these words and hold them dear.
