June 26 Worship

Just As I Am (D)

June 19 recap

Sunday, the 19th's worship was flawed. Now, I realize we're flawed people, and maybe I'm just tired after a grueling emotional weekend, but we just weren't together.

We had to change up a song but that was for a good reason. Our drummer wanted to spend time with it and get with Sean to work out an actual "sound" for the piece. I find that heartening because it seems as if we're going through the music with a collective passive heart.

Your Grace Is Enough - too slow

Blessed Be Your Name - couldn't quite find a key that worked well

Unfailing Love - don't even get me started - something wacky with the timing.

I'm praying hard for a revival of heart for us all.

June 19 Worship

We're changing up the keys on a couple of the songs this week - heads up to guitarists, singers may thank me later :D

Your Grace Is Enough

Blessed Be Your Name

In Christ Alone

Unfailing Love

June 12 Worship - REDONE

Since I'm not "called" to be a worship leader the task can fall completely apart for me at times. The set for June 12th went okay with the band rehearsal, but it just didn't feel right. I talked with David about it and he agreed.

I sat down to rework it and just couldn't get it together. He finally came up with:

O Worship The King (Tomlin)

Our God

New Doxology

The River (Invitation)

It worked out fine, except we only had 2 of our 5 praise team singers. All I can say is: Small church is hard.

June 12 Worship Set

O Worship The King (Tomlin) G

He Reigns (C)

Holy, Holy, Holy (C) - traditional hymn here, not certain of how many verses we'll do yet.


The River (D) The congregation loved this song. We'll be using it this week during the invitation time.

Our drummer was out sick today and he was missed! We've come to depend heavily on him to keep us together and for the added depth to the sound. We decided not to sing "New Doxology" today (June 5) because the drums have a strong presence that make a huge difference. This song was also really received well by the congregation.

June 5th Worship Set

Today Is The Day (C)

God You Reign (D)

New Doxology (D) This song went over so well, we're repeating it this week.

Grace Flows Down (D)

We'll begin working on The River (D) by Brian Doerksen. It's a truly beautiful song in both melody (which has an Appalachian sound) and words.
