Weekend Review – 10-2526-08

This weekend was surprisingly easy. There were a couple of things that made it so. The first was that we were only doing 3 songs, so we only had to work them up in the same amount of time that we have to work out four songs on most weekends, so that was good. I also picked some songs that I thought would be easy to pull off considering the instrumentation we had. So, that helped also.

It was also the start of our new series, miracles. We’re trying a new thing for us, we’re doing a sermon intro video that’s 2 minutes long that we’re playing in the front end of the service. We hope this will help people connect to the Big idea of the sermon during the worship time, which will hopefully make the worship seem a little more purposeful (As opposed to expecting people to remember during the sermon the songs we sang and then make the connection).

I was listening to the recordings of the music, and it was actually pretty decent. It’s nice to know that what I’m hearing in my ears is coming out good on the other end. I don’t know for sure what it sounds like out in the congregation. I’ve been here for almost a year, and I still haven’t been able to get out into the congregation during worship on a weekend to be able to hear what the live sound is like. I’m hoping to be able to do that soon.

Here’s what we did:

  • Beautiful One
  • Welcome
  • Sermon Intro Video
  • Forever
  • Communion
  • All Who Are Thirsty
  • Sermon
  • Blessed Be Your Name

Blessed be your name was the perfect closer for us this weekend. The message was on Jesus turning the water into wine, and the Big idea was “Sometimes the right time for the best wine is one cup at a time.” The idea that God’s provides for our needs, sometimes in abundance and sometimes one cup at a time.
