Weekend Review – 01-0203-10

weekend-reviewWhat a great way to start the new year. At least I think so! Our band did awesome this weekend, especially this morning. We had our A game on this weekend. And considering we didn’t have practice because of Holiday vacations, it was fantastic.

We focused our worship time around what might be my goal for our congregation this year, to take advantage of every opportunity we are given to worship. That we will rejoice daily in our savior, that we will boast in him, that we wouldn’t be lazy or selfish

I had the privilege of doing communion this morning, which I’ve only done one other time since I’ve been here. I botched it up last night, but I think I did a much better job this morning. I talked about Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding, and contrasted that with the cup of the new covenant between Jesus our Groom and the church His bride.

Here was our set:

  • Today is the Day
  • I Will Boast
  • Cannons (Phil Wickham)
  • Communion
  • Pardoning Blood (Mine)
  • Sermon
  • I am In You (Mine)

This last song is one that I wrote a few years ago for a sermon our pastor did at our last church from the book of Colossians. It turned out to be a perfect fit for this sermon in the book of Ephesians. This is the first time in my life I’ve done more than one of my own songs in a worship service. Felt kind of weird, almost like I was trying to get attention. It just worked out that the two songs we did worked really well. Oh well.
