Worship Pre-Textfessional – Feb 24

Anyone with more experience than me what to fill me in on what happened to me this week? For some reason, this Sunday’s song selection surprises me yet seems right on. I mean it’s not exactly what I would choose…but I did. Obviously, there’s something supernatural about being a Worship Leader that I’ll never be able to explain, this weekend being one of them…and it’s not even here yet!

  • PreludeRescue is Coming or Here is Our King – David Crowder*Band
  • Let Everything That Has Breath – E – Redman
  • You Are So Good to Me – G – Third Dayish version
  • Lead Me to the Cross – A – United
  • Shout to the Lord – A – Hillsong
  • Post CommunionCome Thou Fount into Amazing Grace and back again – Drop D – Crowderish version

I mean yeah there’s a process and discussion and preparation and review that happens before I get to this point but I’m still surprised with half of these but excited to see how they’ll turn out!

In a nutshell this weekend’s selection went down like this:

  1. Discussion over what this weekend’s topic would be and Come Thou Fount and Amazing Grace are both great topical songs. We do a version that combines the two: no brainer.
  2. Because of the musicians this week and frequency of the last time played, I really wanted to do Lead Me to the Cross or Mighty to Save. Shout to the Lord was brought up by a guest vocalist for an idea and I like the way it follows Lead Me… so I decided on those 2, even though I downright despise playing Shout… but hey, it’s not always about me so I’m cool with it.
  3. I wanted an old familiar tune that the congregation loves and I like the way You Are So Good To Me ends thematically and thought it led into Lead Me… quite well.
  4. Why oh why did LETHB pop into my head? It’s not a favorite of mine, not a favorite of the band’s, we haven’t done it in ages but for some reason I just couldn’t shake it. But I really like the way it starts the morning. I just don’t understand how it got there.
  5. The prelude was amidst everything else. HIOK is the default but I really, really, REALLY want to give Rescue a go and see if we can pull it off without loops and zaniness. I’ll let you know.

Anyone?
