Sunday Rundown 1.25.09.

Last week I led worship in both services at Sunset, today I led worship for just the 11am. Here was the set:

  • Glory (E, Hillsong)
  • Counting on God (B, New Life)
  • Reign in Us (A, Starfield)
  • Came to My Rescue (C, Hillsong)
  • God of This City (Db, Bluetree)

Many of you know that we usually have two practices a week (something that is changing soon), well this week we had some guys sick and were only able to do one practice. YET the band was as still solid as ever. We had a first time drummer that came as ready for every song as I can ever remember. He was absolutely spot on…nailing transitions, tempos, and accents. It was an absolute blast playing with him.

Reign in Us was a new song this week. I introduced the chorus and then we did the full song and added a chorus at the end beyond what the Starfield recording does. The song reminds me a lot of Mighty to Save and I dig it.

We had a lot of extra stuff in the service: a few videos, a guest speaker, special offering…so I did like almost zero talking. That always takes a little pressure off of leading.

This is the 3rd time we’ve done Counting on God. Not sure if the congregation has grabbed a hold of it yet or not.

Came to My Rescue is such an incredible song…love it, love it, love it.

It was a great morning to be with the church.

    Great song choice.

    I have yet to hear the Starfield song, but I notice many churches include it in worship. Came to my rescue is amazing. I try to play it once a month. There are a few folks in the congregation that could sing nothing but that one song.

  • windbag

    We introduced Reign In Us a couple of weeks back. Well-crafted song. The team and congregation really clicked with it.

  • Janet Fraser

    new favorite song… Reign in Us. Liked it so much i bought it on itunes, NOT in the key of A 🙂 thanks for bringing it to us.

  • Jenni Clayville

    I heart Reign in Us and Came To my Rescue.

    Great set!!!

  • Steff

    Hmmm………….. Looks like I need to get on the ball and introduce “Reign in us”. It seems to be a hit and now that you’ve compared it to “Mighty to Save” I’m really going to have to look into it!

  • Tyler

    Janet brings up a good point. We lowered the song from C to A. It was just too high for most women to hang with and even a tad high for me which is saying something.

    Steff- I compare it not based on lyrics but on song flow and feel.

  • Yonas

    Key of A? Pssch…I ain’t skuurd, bring it!!!

  • kathyk

    Just for the record…I think Counting on God is my new favorite song! It just might be because I can’t do anything but count on Him right now, but I absolutely love that song. It was stuck in my head for days and I actually didn’t mind!
