Sunday Set List

February 23, 2009 — 5 Comments

This is a part of the wonderful world of the infamous mckinnonblog carnival of Joy

This sunday was a pretty freakin awesome sunday.

We had some huge news this week that I will be sharing more about soon. It’s one part of the reason why i have been absent from the net for the last week. Our church found a building and we signed the lease. WOO HOO.

This is some awesome stuff because God did this hands down. We will be moving from a church building to a storefront on the main drag here and I can’t be more excited. Again more to come on that.

So needless to say the excitement in the building was infectious.

Here is the set this week

Processional:
The Glorious Impossible – Carl Cartee (C)

Everlasting God – Brenton Brown
You Are Good – Kari Jobe

Let me just say one thing. If you are not doing “the glorious impossible” in your church I feel sorry for you. :)

As always…part of the carnival

A very cool Sunday. Great music and some major answers to prayer. One of my youth has been praying her mom would come to church. She has been taking some major leaps of faith and even annointed her mom with oil this week and prayed for her. Well this week God honored her faithfulness when her mom asked her If she could go to church with her. AWESOME! She had a tough day because the enemy is pushing back so if you can give her a quick prayer and her family that would be great.

I think overall the set was perfect. Everything went smooth this week. After service we had a lunchin and discussed as a church family or pending move and our churches options. Everything went great. JustĀ  a real good Sunday.

Worship Text-Fessional:
Wow what a crazy week…thanksgiving came and flew by. We had an awesome thanksgiving.
There are 5 churches in the area that the pastors have been meeting together for prayer every few weeks. One of the pastors is ours (my dad). The others are a non denom, Baptist, Evangelical Free, Charismatic Eucharistic Church (thats us), and A presbyterian. So one day they decided to have a Day before thanksgiving service at the Presbyterian Church and invite all 5 churches. Have any of you ever tried that? It almost never works. Nobody shows up and it’s awkward because the Charismatic guys are afraid of scaring the baptists etc etc. So we went with lousy expectations. I was asked to co lead worship and we didn’t know what to do. We decided on Open the eyes, Forever, and blessed be your name. The service opened with the churches trumpet player and huge pipe organ. Wow the hymns like that are sweet. Then 3 pastors preached then worship then hymn and 2 more pastors. Each one preached for 5 min. Let me tell you this service was the start of something huge…it was brilliant. The pastors preached that we are better together. IT’s obvious words but I think that maybe once in my Christian life I may see some pastors actual act on that.

Sunday service:
Good service this week. It’s the week before advent and it’s called Christ the king. We opened with Before the Throne of God which went ok but it my hands were not doing what my brain wanted.
Did a prayer and jumped into my new favorite song Say so. This is a killer song for just getting fired up for Christ…the rest of the Praise set was good as well ending in an original Hallelujah Love Song (written by me and Debbie Hanlon) As a matter of fact I just picked up a web cam. Horay for jumping on board 5 years late. lol. I still have to tweak the audio settings because I’ve got a little crackle, but here is me testing out the cam with that song. (expect much much more, so add me to your youtube watch list)

If you see any originals and want chords or anything let me know because I would love for other churches to be blessed by this stuff as well.
Before the sermon we did thats my King video…AWESOME!
Communion came and we did a few including my new slow fav. Nothing without you: Bebo Norman. If your not doing this one, you should.

All in all a good service, but for me that thanksgiving service was the highlight of the week.
Cya next time. Same bat channel

Interesting week… I am about to get real here so strap on your helmet.

It has been a tough week with family, emotions, money, kids, pregnant wife, and blogging friends who are going through major trials. (and before there are any crazy thoughts…My marraige is just fine…that isn’t the issues…My wife rocks) I have been really focusing on God this week, but it seems that I was dreading Sunday morning. Basically too much crap going on. So what does I guy do…Pray. yes talk yes. all good answers, but it was still an unavoidably tough week and the peace wasn’t coming.

So church starts this morning…all these thoughts flying through my head. I do not want to be there. I want to be at home on the couch doing nothing. Funny thing is I am more than justified in feeling this way.

Worship starts with Did You Feel the mountains tremble.

“Open up the doors and let the music play let theĀ  streets resound”

It went great. People got really into it from the start…Thank the Lord he can work through a crappy vessel like me.

Next comes prayers and the praise set. I had a good time playing just because I love to play but my mind was not where it needed to be. Things started to change we we came to All we need.
I ended the song repeating..

“All we need…All we Need…All we need is You”

God was starting to push into me..I’m not really receiving it

Sermon…I hear it was good…But here is brutal honesty…I wouldn’t know…I wasn’t really listening.

I sang Bless his name before communion

“Lord we come with gratitude that flows…from deep within our souls…we rejoice in You”

That was me mister thankful…are you kidding…things are a mess…simply that…and I am to be thankful

Communion….

Invitation Fountain:

” all who are weak…all who are weary come to the rock…come to the fountain.”

It hit me…well God hit me…I needed to come to the fountain of mercy….the table of the Lord…remember what He did…and what he promises to do.

” He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.”

I love that verse…there is however a difference to loving a verse or enjoying it and actually standing on the word and the Kings firm foundation.

It’s odd…I have been reading in the blogsphere…God will prune and then expect bigger. Steven Furtick said expect freakin watermelons. I DO!

Apostle Paul was in jail and praised His king…I recently read a bout a woman losing her baby girl and she is praising the King

We went into O Praise him…

I will turn my ear to heaven and hear HIS joyous noise. I will make MY praises constant and rejoice in my Savior. I will thank my God for giving me the most wonderful wife and kids. All else around me may be Wack…I will still Praise Him.

“PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW…”

Great set this week.

This was a really cool service because in the middle of it we had a renewing of vows ceremony for an awesome couple in our church. This is a couple who not only got to renew their vows but got to dedicate their marriage to the King. Gotta love that!

So we opened this week with All creatures of Our God and King. This has to be one of my top 5 favorite hymns. I love it. We did it crowder style of course.
Then we had prayers and went into our gloria in a lower key to be a ble to transition better into the raucous Dancing Generation. This song gets the church pumped up and people hopping around. It is very cool to see people get into God like that.
After that we did some changes to the original list going into Friend of God and Holy God (doerksen). Holy God to me is one of the top worship songs out there. It comes from Doerksens last CD and it hits me every time.

Then You Amaze me by Michael Neale. Another top 5 for me. His stuff is brilliant and that song is so powerful.

I’ll skip the rest…and just say that the service was very worshipful and awesome because we were worshiping A God who puts together marriages and keeps them together.

Last song. My redeemer lives. I decided to funk it up a bit with bluesy 7th chords and my les paul with a bit of grit. The result…great fun.

Cya next week
