Just because I thought we needed an up-tempo song, doesn't mean we really did. Sitting at your desk the outline can look great:
- good songs,
- good presentation of the gospel...
- RED FLAG: all the songs seem to be the same tempos...
- probably should add one that is a little more upbeat....
- So I did...
- but we didn't.
- If we had it would have been a disaster.
During the rehearsal everything seem to work well, even the up-tempo song, however, as we engaged in worship I knew it wasn't going to work. I am grateful that I have a band that is flexible, even in the moment.
Not every service has to have a wide range of tempos. The most important thing is that the Gospel is presented...the story of God.
Here is our setlists. During our services we took out the song I Have A Hope.
Baptism: in both our services today we got to witness fathers baptizing their sons.
This post is my participation in the blog carnival Sunday Setlists found at The Worship Community.
