Worship Confessional: February 22, 2009

worship_confession

This weekend has been a complete blur… My oldest daughter got married on Saturday, which means we had all sorts of family and friends in town for the event, which also means we had a houseful of people almost non-stop.  It was quite a day.  Actually, it has been several days of craziness!  But, in the end, we survived, she is now married, and my wife is dropping off the last of our guests at the airport as I type this.  So why did I type all of that in my worship confessional?  1. Because I could, I am proud of my daughter and my new son-in-law (that sounds strange).  2. It leads me into the day we had at Glenville as we celebrated the Lord’s Supper.

We only had one service so that we could partake of Communion together.  I enjoyed that, as I was able to get an extra hour of sleep!  I needed that!  It was a sweet service.  Lord’s Supper is always one of my favorite Sundays!  Here is the order for the day:

Video – We played a video that we actually downloaded about the church being a great place to be.  We did not use their music though, our band played behind it.  This was our first time doing this, and it went quite well!

  • Everlasting GodBrown/Riley
  • How Great Is Our God = Tomlin/Reeves/Cash

Welcome/Prayer

Video – I Will Remember

Message – Our pastor spoke on the significance of the Lord’s Supper in a Christ followers life.

Receiving the Elements – I like how we do this at our church.  Before we receive the elements, we have a time to come to the altar and pray.  Then, we take our elements from three different stations at the altar and go back to our seats to wait for everyone else.  It does take some time, but it is time well spent!  Our pastor then spoke a few more words and led us in receiving the elements.  Then, we went into…

  • At The CrossZschech/Morgan
  • You Are My StrengthMorgan
  • A New HallelujahSmith/Smith/Baloche

It was a great service to end our quite hectic weekend!  Our God is so good!

  1. Second list I’ve seen with A New Hallelujah on it. I’ll have to check that one out.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Congratulations on your daughters wedding! I love “At the Cross”.

  3. “At the Cross.”

    Man, what a song. That’s got to be one of the most powerful communion songs there is. Fantastic setlist all around. Also makes me think it’s time for us to pull “How Great is Our God” out of non-use.
