Sunday Setlist and Recap, January 25, 2009

To continue my participation in Fred McKinnon's Setlist Carnival, where you post your song service setlist for the week and link back to his site with the goal is to see what others are doing in order to help with our own planning and whatnot, here's our setlist for Christian Church of Broomfield for this past week:

10:45 (Contemporary) Service
Here I am Worship (Tim Hughes)
We Bring the Sacrifice of Praise (Kirk Dearman)
You're Worthy of My Praise (Reginald Heber, John Dykes)
Praise Adonai (Paul Baloche)
Here I am to Worship (reprise) (Tim Hughes -communion)
I Will Come and Bow Down (Martin Nystrom -invitation)
Everlasting God (Brenton Brown -closing)

We were short several band members this week, so we made some major changes to our intended set. We orginally had "Let God Arise"(Tomlin), "Father, Spirit, Jesus"(Casting Crowns), and "We Fall Down"(Tomlin) in the set. Those got axed, and "Here I am to Worship" was added. For musicians we had Jeff as leader on acoustic guitar, Robert on synth, and me on (Jeff's) acoustic bass (I wasn't on the schedule at all). Our pianist was sick and didn't show this morning. The scheduled guitar player didn't show at yesterday's rehearsal nor today's service, our normal worship leader was out of town, and there was no drummer scheduled.

The service went well, all things considered. There were a few rough patches: getting into songs was harder than normal because the 2 primary song-starters were out. There were a couple of turns missed, but we compensated well and kept a flow within songs. The starting and transitioning between songs (really the overall flow) of the song service was our biggest concern at our post-service chat.

The post-service chat went well. I led the discussion with my idea from last week, and I think that really encouraged participation. I look forward to chatting with Todd this week. I find myself brimming with hope that we've collectively come to a focal point for improvement. There are so many aspects we could address that nothing really improves. This helps us to point our energies.
