This is late, but here's the set from the last weekend I led in Kansas: "Happy Day" [Tim Hughes, Ben Cantelon] "Marvelous Light" [Charlie Hall] "Our God" [Jonas Myrin, Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin] "Lord of All" [Kristian Stanfill] Reflection: Psalm 23 "You Never Let Go" [Matt Redman, Beth Redman] Message: "I Am the Good Shepherd" [Pastor Joe Hishmeh] Response: "A Mighty Fortress is Our God" [Christy Nockels] (led by Sarah Oldberg)
I had a fantastic weekend leading worship with my new friends in Topeka, KS. I sent the files up two weeks prior, and we all got together Saturday afternoon to work it all out. Fellowship has four weekend services--two on Saturday at 5 PM and 7 PM, and two on Sunday at 9 AM and 10:45 AM. It makes for a pretty crazy weekend, but it definitely makes the most of the space they have available. I really enjoyed working with the band and the tech team. There are some great people there!
The highlight of the services for me was "A Mighty Fortress is Our God." I absolutely love that song, and Sarah did a fantastic job leading it. The lyric is so solid, and as Sarah said that weekend, "It sounds like you've heard it before." It is instantly singable, and as people began to grab hold of it, they stood in response and sang out the great truth: "A mighty fortress is our God/ A sacred refuge is Your name/ Your kingdom is unshakable/ With You forever we will reign."
I'm heading back up there this weekend to lead once again, and I'm excited about joining in some awesome worship of our King together. I hope you had a great worship experience wherever you were, and that you are taking time to focus in on the greatness of our God throughout your week!
In the Son,
