Weekend Worship Songs 9.26-27.09

This weekend’s worship was powerful. Before he hit the stage I shared with my team some worship truths. As a leader it is essential that you direct the hearts of your team to eternal, spiritual matters. Don’t expect them to lead you. Remind them of God’ Word. Remind them what congregational worship is. Remind them why they are here ministering.

I shared how we never know the intensity of individual’s personal trials. I know of some members in our church who have been hit with devastating losses recently, and I’m sure there are others we don’t even know. As a worship team, we are called to care about our people and lift their eyes to a higher truth than their circumstances. We want them to declare the promises of God’s Word and be transformed in the tangible presence of Jesus as we worship.

As a leader, if you don’t remind your team of Biblical truth, they will gauge success by a tight musical set. That is good, but it is not good enough for worship ministry. Direct their hearts into what God is presently doing, and into what He has definitively done.

  1. Glory to God Forever (Steve Fee & Vicky Beeching)
  2. All Because of Jesus (Steve Fee)
  3. I Have Found (Kim Walker)
  4. With Everything (Joel Houston) – this was a new one for us. I simply wanted to build on the truth of God’s glory. We only did the bridge on this one and it was a powerful close. I’m not sure if we’ll do the entire song due to the complex song structure. Could be difficult for a congregation to follow. We’ll see.
