Sunday set list 4.26.09

OK, so today was one of the crazier days I have had as a worship leader. First, it is always crazy when whoever is speaking has to cover both campuses. Today was Adam's turn. On days like today, we have to front end everything in the service in order to give Adam time to drive across town. At the end of the set, during the last song before offering, we had a person pass out, and the folks around him started working on him, and then they called out for a doctor. So, and this is one of the reasons I have the best band in the world, we faded out of the song we were doing, and I started praying as they worked with him, and got him into a wheel chair and out to the EMT's. When the song was over, Adam had arrived but was back stage and didn't really see what happened but heard me talking. I made the decision that that moment was not at all the time to take an offering, so we went ahead and sang a scaled back version of "Enough" and then went into the sermon bumper and sermon. We had planned to do a song at the end of the sermon anyway, so when Adam finished up, we came out and I led into the offering and did the benediction out of that. Good news is that Eric, the guy who passed out, is fine.

So here is the set list...

"Beautiful One"
"Mighty to Save"
Welcome and Sermon Set up
"Blessed Be Your Name"
"Never Let Go"
"Enough" scaled back for prayer sake
Sermon Bumper
Message
Offering
"Draw Me Close" (on the fly, thanks to my Piano player, a 25 year veteran of worship leading)
Benediction

That IS a crazy story! Great job making good decisions on the fly. And great, solid, rich set. Love those songs.

You didn't even add that this was the second person to pass out in as many months!

I felt for you. I could see the wheels turning "WhatDoIDo?WhatDoIDo?WhatDoIDo?".

But then we went on to have a great worship service & I could tell the people were very receptive during the sermon, sharing, and rest of worship. They really were singing out on Draw Me Close.

Wow! I've never been in a service where someone passed out or had a medical emergency. Sounds like you handled it well.

What a smokin' set! I love the flow between "Blessed Be Your Name", "Never Let Go", and "Enough" - great connectivity.

One Sunday, we had a sound guy pass out...that was interesting. He was fine too.

Blessings!
