Sunday Setlist Aug 23

Posted: August 23, 2009 in Uncategorized

2008 Metro logo This is my third week participating in the Sunday Setlists Blog Carnival.  I am having a great time with it.  It is so much fun to read what other worship leaders around the world are doing, as well as hear some feedback about what I am doing.  This has really been beneficial.  Thank you all who are posting and thanks to those of you who have commented on my posts.

We had a really great morning at Metro Christian Fellowship this morning.  We did something new this morning with our team.  We played with a click!!  It was really so much fun.  I totally suggest giving it a shot if you haven’t yet.  It really helped our up tempo songs really lock into a groove.  I am really proud of our team for their willingness to try new things.  They did a great job with it.

The first song with played was Psalm 126 (You have done great things) I really love this song by Charlie Hall.  There is always a tendency to play this song too fast, so the click really helped with this one.  It felt really good.  Next we played Sing to the King.  It is the same tempo so it was easy for the band to lock into that one as well.

At the National Worship Leader Conference this year I went to a workshop with Vicky Beeching.  She told a story about when Matt Redman wrote The Heart of Worship. Since hearing that story I have not been able to get the song out of my head.  If you don’t know the story, do a search and read about it.  It really helped me remember to keep things in perspective.  So we played that song next this morning.

We do communion on the fourth Sunday of the month. We prepared for communion with a new song my Matt Maher called Remembrance.  It is such a great song and it will be out on his record in September.  It is a perfect song to help prepare our hearts for communion.  This was the first Sunday we have done it and it went over really well.  I think I will do it again next month.  We ended with Chris Tomlin’s  Take My Life.  That helped reinforce the message of “Here I am, Send Me” that we spoke during our offering time.

We had a really great morning of engaging our hearts with the Lord.  I am so blessed to get to do this as my career.  The Lord has been so good!  Please leave any comments.  I would love to hear your feedback!

To God be the Glory,

BOBBY

    Bobby,
    It’s great to have you sharing – sounds incredible. Did we get to meet at NWLC? I hope so .. I met so many people, I’m forgetting names already. Sounds like a beautiful worship service!

      No, we didn’t get a chance to meet, but I love that you have put this sunday setlist blog together. Thanks so much. I am sure we will meet at another conference some other time. Thanks for your feedback.

    Bobby,
    The Rememberance song was perfect for communion. I kept thinking as we learned it and worshipped,this is what communion is about, remembering what Jesus has done. This is His command to us, do not forget who I am and what I’ve done. I liked learning a new song too.
    Thank you for being willing to take risks and be creative. And I loved ALL the other songs you included this morning. I was very happy.

  4. Bobby,
    Thanks for sharing! We’ve tried the clicks a couple of times, but I just can’t get used to it. It feels more constricting that freeing to me. Who had the click in their ears – everyone, or just the drummer? Maybe we’re just not doing it right. I’d like to figure it out because I know there are many benefits.

    Where did you find the music for “Remembrance”? I’ve wanted to do that song, too, since NWLC, but haven’t come across it. Is it on worshiptogether.com?

    Thanks!
    Barry

    Yes, the setlist thing is a great way to connect and see what’s going on around us, isn’t it? Thanks for participating. Our drummer is our click track. The guy’s a human metronome.
