Weekend Review – 09-1213-09

weekend-reviewThis weekend was a great weekend! We were “back” in the sense that we had a full band which we hadn’t had in quite a while, and I have to say, it was quite nice! Over the summer we’ve had a lot of people gone, so it was nice to be back in full swing.

We also did things a little differently this week. Instead of just going through our normal routine, I added some readings from a couple of books to get us started and to add a little illustrative and educational component to the worship portion of the service. So, I read a little from “The Worshipping Artist” by Rory Noland & a little from “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis which Noland quotes in his book.

Here is what we did:

  • Read from “The Heart of the Artist”
  • Center
  • Your Grace Is Enough
  • I Am Free
  • Read from “Mere Christianity”
  • From the Inside Out
  • Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone).
  • Sermon
  • I Am Crowned

It’s interesting because I had been thinking and working on a song that dealt with our topic for this weekend for a while now. Pastor Bob was talking about the basic idea of not being able to do anything to earn God’s Favor. The song I wrote started from Psalm 8 and developed into this song about how we need to live like we’re already crowned children of the king. People seemed to really enjoy the song, it worked really well to tie the sermon into a song.

We started a new series this weekend called “Breaking Free.” We’re using a graphic for our series that’s based off of a graphic we found over on creativemyk.com.  If you haven’t checked them out and you need graphic content, you should go there, it’s a great resource.
