Worship Set List – January 20: Communion, remembrance and Photoshop

Worshipbnnr This weekend we had our youth pastor, Terrence Sutton, speak eloquently.  Terrence helped us plan a worship experience based around the theme of “remembrance” and so communion was appropriate.  We gave people four opportunities to choose from:  they could simply sit or kneel and reflect at their seats, go forward to get prayer from our elders/prayer team, go to the sides of the room to partake communion or give to our needs offering called “the Agape fund” at the back of the room.  During this time we had some singing, and some instrumental music with scriptures.

Our folks are not trained yet, so Terrence did not give them too long to simply be sitting waiting to be directed.  However, the several minutes we set aside for this was meaningful, I think, to many.  One reason we have a Sunday service is to practice our worship–creating a safe place to listen to God, give God his due and allow for formation of His character in you.  The hope is that this propels us to take that into the more mundane times of the week.

One hilarious thing was the use of Photoshop in Terrence’s introductory slides.  His brother put his face with historical figures. I thought this was a creative way for him to poke fun at himself and set up the topic.  Overall, this was one of my favorite communion time, especially when Danny (one of our guitar guys) pulled us all aside after the service and had us partake communion as a team.  That meant a lot to me.

Here is the music we did:

  1. This Sunday was good. I heard a few comments from the team about the good song selection. I was a little emotional when we sang Blessed Be Your Name of Matt Redman. I thought about how my wife’s grandfather past away and during the same week we found out Johanna was pregnant. I definately praised God this Sunday.

  17. Sunday was amazing!! It was my first Sunday back as worship leader in over a month after having surgery, and it was wonderful to be welcomed back with open arms. Our music director did a fabulous job of picking music, and the congregation was engaged throughout the whole service as we worshiped together.
