Worship Set List April 27: “Inside Out”, Co-leading Worship, 95 dbs and Mens BBQ

Worshipbnnr Todays worship service really hit me personally today.  The song “Inside Out” really hits home to people, I think.  To sing about God’s everlasting nature and then “consume me from the inside out” means to as a response to seeing God’s character that we give ourselves completely as an offering.  Why is it that we hold on to possessions or position over putting God first?  We forget.  We forget the character of God–hence, the reason for why we gather each week is to remember the character and work of God.

I love to co-lead worship, whether with backing singers or having multiple worship leaders.  My daughter, Emilie, and Bob led along side with me.  Bob is a gifted worship leader who tag teamed the lead.  This makes for a richer presentation, in my opinion.

Our team is logging in the decibel levels in various parts of the room in hopes of finding a sweet spot.  Most growing churches run at least 95 db or louder.  We found that it is 2xs louder in the front than in the back of the room.  Also, the participation is helped by being close to the 95 dbs.  We are using “A” weighting on slow response, and double checking the bass to be sure it make sense with the music style.  The jury is out, but we adjusted, based on this process, the 2nd service a bit softer.  So much fun!;)

To top off the afternoon, our worship band played for the men’s BBQ.  Now, I got to get a bit of rest before small group tonight.  Phew…what a day!

Here are the songs:

How was your worship weekend?

  13. Looks like a great set! “From the Inside Out” is an excellent song — we’ve been doing that one for last few months, and the congregation gets pretty into it.

  17. I got a chance to work the sound board this weekend. I figured out why we have some sound problems. Basically, stop turning up the main volumns. I adjusted a lot of the other knobs during the service and it turned out pretty good.

  29. Hey Rich,Great songs your doing. Quick question, how big is your room? We’ve had issues with our sound as well. I believe we’ll start measuring the sound. We meet in our gym with acoustical tile on three sides. our main issues are solved but there’s always room for improvement.
    Also, explain what you mean by: We are using “A” weighting on slow response.

    My set list is posted on my blog.

  33. Hey man,we run mid 90’s, and I swear it’s not enough. In our old venue, it was plenty – but now, in a 1,000 seat auditorium with high, exposed roof … it just still feels like you’re singing too loud, and you wanna turn up the music.

    I noticed yesterday that when the auditorium is EMPTY, 95 db sounded big and full. When it’s full of people, it’s anemic.

    I’m challenging our guys to pump it up a bit more .. and we’ll deal w/ the consequences as they come.

  37. Jamey…On the dB meter, you can use “A” weighting to accurately measure what the human ear hears. “C” weighting takes into account ALL frequencies which can be useful, but most likely will be higher if you have a bass guitar. Bass notes are felt–not heard, for instance. Slow, means it measures an average, rather than instant.
    Fred–uhm…makes sense to me. To fill a room with sound and impact the people, research shows 95dB and above is what growing churches use, regardless of style.
