Worship Set List 12-9-07: The puppy story, spontaneity, and me on guitar for some reason

Worshipbnnr Another great weekend at Sunridge! Our pastor, Greg Sidders, is still going through Romans and was in chapter 8 Sunday.  The puppy story was powerfully poignant, and the sermon is of course another “must hear” so go here to get it.

We had a bit of spontaneity once again in our worship, both in our “in touch” time and music.  Britt, one of our pastors, brought up a random guy to quiz him on what the “in touch” points are–if you are new, fill the card out, etc…  It was hilarious and refreshing and completely in the moment.  For some reason, it worked!  Musically, we left some “spaces” to linger in the worship set.  I think it really helped people settle in and participate.

Of course, Mike Dalton was out and we missed him, but his leadership of our band was felt even in his absence.  Thanks to Mike and to Chris and Jason for stepping up and the rest of the guys, too.  I am so blessed to work with a great tech team–our audio, video and lighting crew rocks, too!!

I did an original this week–and was on the guitar for some reason again.  I do not have a recording, but it really seemed to work well.  The song is based on Romans 8:26 which is about the Holy Spirit praying for us.  Here are the tunes:

How was your worship weekend?

  1. Sounds like the Spirit is really moving in your faith community. I serve a more traditional church that has been in decline for over 30 years (from 1,400 members to 140). Still, God is good. This Sunday, I could see how more young people are playing an active role, people are more engaged in the Scriptures and message, we are enjoying moments of spontaneity, even laughing. Praise God!
