Sunday Setlist for June 25-26, 2011

This blog post is part of the Sunday Setlist blog carnival.

I’m wrapping up a busy weekend of worship leading. I was booked for this Sunday at Christ Community Church (McMinnville, TN) a few weeks ago and then was asked to fill in at my home church last Saturday night.

It was suggested that I keep it simple for the Saturday night service (our smallest service). The instrumentation was two acoustic guitars, bass guitar, percussion, and Aynsley Martingdale on backing vocals. I really enjoy these types of acoustic settings.

Sunday morning at McMinnville, we had a full band including two background singers. Special kudos to Karlton Scott for playing drums / perc for both churches. The two services had different time constraints, but I drew from the following set for both.

  • A New Hallelujah (Baloche, Smith, Smith) – I like Michael W. Smith‘s version just fine, but since I don’t normally have an African children’s choir at my disposal, I refer to Paul Baloche’s version.
  • Everlasting Arms (Hoffman, Riggs, Showalter) – This is my arrangement of “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” with a new chorus. “You can keep this world and its charms. I’ll be leaning on the everlasting arms.”
  • Ancient Words (Lynn DeShazo)
  • How Great is Our God (Cash, Reeves, Tomlin)– It’s really, really hard to go wrong with this one.
  • What Would I Have Done? (Black, Hughes, Johnson) – a lesser known (but fantastic!) song from Bethel Church in Redding, CA
  • Deep in Love With You (Black, Smith, Smith) – Very intimate song and was so nice during the acoustic set
  • Revelation Song (Jennie Lee Riddle) – Another great staple for worship leading.
