I took a vacation last week for everything (including blogging and twittering!) so I'm back in the swing of it now...even if this is a couple of days late:)
The weekend after Easter is always the week that I make EVERY effort to plan worship that is very familiar and focuses on who God is and celebrating what He has done regardless of the message series we are currently doing. There is a natural "down" feeling after the hype of Easter. I think I have taken vacation almost every year the week after Easter weekend. We had the Verizon Heritage Golf Tournament this week, so people get out of here or attend the tournament and our Sunday attendance reflects that fact. We kicked off a new message series called "My House." We are taking a room in the house every week for 7 weeks and evaluating how our "houses" measure up to God's standard for our lives. I'm very excited about it. John, our Tech Pastor, did a cool bumper video for it...I'll try to upload it over the next few weeks in a post... my very favorite he has done thus far! Here was our service..
"Marvelous Light" - Hall
"Alleluia (More Than Worthy) - Carr
Message Series Set-up
Missionary interview - video
Time of Response
"Jesus Messiah" - Tomlin
"How Great is Our God w/How Great Thou Art" - Tomlin
My worship confessional will tell you more and especially the part where I am SO glad God gave me a really good ear :) I'm having a little trouble with audio and video matching up, so this is a little funky - I'll work on it for next time...
