MERRY CHRISTMAS! It’s almost here, so we’ve got a┬áspecial CHRISTMAS EDITION of Sunday Setlists for Dec. 18th! And this time we have GIFTS!

Please share your fresh ideas with the rest of your worship leader friends for an opportunity to win a stack of great, new worship CDs! Help them consider creative song choices, or arrangements – share below.

Just join us on Facebook or leave a comment here about how your worship gatherings went! Did you introduce any new songs? What other elements of your service did you include?

  • Apart from our Sound Man getting called away somewhat last minute, making us grab up one of our lesser experienced volunteers, this past Sunday was GREAT!

    “Christmas Offering” – Baloche
    “Mary did you Know” – Gaither Arr.
    “O come all ye Faithful” – Traditional

    Super excited for our Christmas Eve Melodrama/Comedy of the Christmas Story from the Jesus Storybook Bible – it will truly be unlike any service we’ve done before­čśŐ (Angel wielding a lightsaber, lots of congregational involvement, a mad-libs section) Set list includes:
    Hark the Herald Angels Sing/King of Heaven – Baloche
    Midnight Clear (Love Song) -Tomlin
    Winter Snow – Audrey Assad/Tomlin
    Noel – Lauren Daigel/Tomlin┬á
    Silent Night – Tomlin

    I’ll follow up next week for how it went. Merry Christmas to everyone!

    Last Sunday was our Christmas concert. We create a worship experience using all of our ensembles: Band, 2 choirs, and 2 handbell groups. It was a blast! Too many songs in total to list, but as for the band, we joked it was a “Very Getty Christmas”:
    Call: O Children Come – Getty
    Opening Song: Christmas is Coming – Jason Gray (with kids doing ribbon dancing… super fun!)
    Somewhere else: Away in a Manger – arranged in-house with an “O Come Emmanuel” electric guitar interlude between verses
    Response: Holy Spirit (Living Breath of God) – Getty; we’ll probably use this through the year!
    Sending: Go, Tell It on the Mountain – Getty; Super fun with string arrangements.

    There you have it. It was plenty of work, but well worth it. Could use a lot of new music for the coming year; this is my first year as a FT worship leader after volunteering for the past 17!
