My Savior Lives
Better is One Day
At the Cross
Come, Now is the Time to Worship
You Are God Alone
Let Your Love Pour Out
We had a pretty good day in worship. We introduced a couple of new songs to the congregation. The first was "My Savior Lives", a song out of New Life Worship in Colorado. It is a great opening song, especially on a cold day like today. It has a lot of energy and strong lyrics. The other new song was "Let Your Love Pour Out". This was written by a friend of mine named Marc Hendrix. I have been wanting to do this song for a long time. It is one of those songs that really touched me when Marc and I used to sing it at Hillvue, and today was a great day to do it. I have already gotten several good comments on it, and a couple of requests for copies on CD. It fit really well with the altar call that Adam gave.
And speaking of Adam, he just seems to get better and better from the pulpit. He gave a soul stirring message today that culminated in an invitation to share your brokenness on a card and bring it to the altar and then pray over it. The staff will pray over them tomorrow and then we are going to do something creative with them that will tie to the final sermon of the series. We will then take them and divide them up amongst the ministry staff and we will pray for the things that people shared on the cards. We will do this over the next few months.
I am already looking forward to next week. We are doing a new song from Casting Crowns called "East to West" which will go right along with the sermon, and also we are doing a new worship song called "Friend of God" by Michael Gungor and Israel Houghton. It is a high speed worship song that I think will be a popular addition to the rotation.
Have a great week...
