Worship Set List – 11/25/07: The teenagers are taking over the church, adopt a child, and flexing in worship flow

Worshipbnnr

This morning was an awesome experience for me as a dad, worship leader and pastor.  My 13-year-old daughter, Emilie, helped me lead worship with three other teens–two young adults and a high schooler and Emilie.  One thing that gets me up in the morning is working for the future of the Church here in America and how we need to raise up our emerging leaders.  This morning symbolized part of what my life’s work is about.  When your own daughter is a passionate and gifted worship leader at such a young age it makes this vision even more personal.  Each of these young people were invited into our “world” not just as observers but as contributors.  How else will they learn how to lead?

We had a special “Adopt A Child” theme where we promoted child sponsorship church-wide and with Terrence Sutton teaching.  We selected three organizations that our church people already support. I believe almost 150 children were sponsored through World Vision, Compassion International and our own God’s Kids orphanages.  This response is what makes being at Sunridge a joy.  Our people have such a heart!

This service was a bit different than our normal weekend with the sponsorships as part of worship.  This meant that a couple gaffs gaffes would indeed happen.  However, being flexible allowed us to worry not so much about the production sheet rather than our goal.

Here are the songs:

How was your worship weekend?

  17. Thanks all for such encouraging words!
    Now, Eric, I misspelled “gaffe” into “gaff”–a gaffe is a clumsy error, like when the president misspeaks. I corrected the spelling in the post. Perhaps it is a gaffe to use gaffe?

  21. HeyThat’s cool your daughter is singing with you (and singing great, too) – my daughter sings with me sometimes also. She’s 15, and her name is Emelia – weird, huh? She goes by Emmy.

    Maybe I’ll post a video of her on my unread blog sometime – at least you can see her.

    BTW – if you had been talking about gaff tape, you spelled it right. But since you were talking about mistakes, the only gaffe you committed was misspelling gaffe.

  29. I’m happy for you. Even though I’m not a father, I can imagine how proud you felt and still feel because I know how good I feel when I think I’ve pleased our heavenly Father. And thanks for playing Blessed Be Your Name. It’s my favorite.
