Giving “Sunday Setlists” A Shot

Posted: August 11, 2009 in Uncategorized

Over the past two days I have heard so much about this “Sunday Setlist” idea.  Be it from Twitter, Facebook or other Worship Leaders around Kansas City “Sunday Setlists” seems to be the happening thing.  So here I am giving it a shot.  This is a part of the sunday setlist blog carnival at This is a brand new blog and I have never done this before, so I am learning this as I go.

I had a great morning of worship on Sunday!  Even before the service began.  As we wrapped up our soundcheck and gathered for prayer we began a discussion about how we can expect the presence of the Lord to be with us as we worship.  It was a great time of discussion and really helped us to focus in on what we were there to do.  One of our team members gave a testimony about how the Lord had healed her during worship a couple of weeks ago from some allergies that had been bothering her.  The Lord is so good and so faithful!  After a testimony like that it is easy to want to jump up and sing about the goodness of the Lord.

We started with “O Taste and See” by Brian and Jenn Johnson.  We play it in D and it always go over really well.  Next, we went into “Beautiful One” by Tim Hughes.  This is a little bit older song, but it is still one of my favorites.  At the end of it we slowed it down like Tim Hughes does on his recording and went into some spontaneous worship, asking the Holy Spirit to come and soften our hearts that we would be able to receive the word that the Lord has for us today.

“Came to my Rescue” was next.  I love this song and we spent a lot of time during our practice really working out the dynamics and the builds.  It was by far the best our team has ever played it and the congregation really responded well to it.

We ended with “Psalm 23” by Jason Upton.  I don’t typically do a lot of Jason Upton songs on Sunday morning, but this one is beautiful and is always powerful.

Overall, a great service.  Thank you Jesus for your faithfulness.  It is always good to worship the King of Kings!

Thanks so much for reading.
