Easter in the church world is a pretty big deal. Â Lot’s to do and plan for because there are so many people who visit church on this weekend. Â It’s kind of a cool opportunity to connect with the people who might only check out a church once or twice a year. Â Ultimately it’s a big deal not just because people tend to show up, but because they might be more open to spiritual things and we can introduce them to Jesus. Â That’s what motivates me!
We had a Good Friday service to set aside some time to remember and reflect on what Jesus did for us by dying on the cross. Â Some worship, communion and an illustrated sermon by our ministry team…pretty sweet.
Good Friday set list:
Saturday was pretty crazy. Â I sang in a wedding at the church right before the evening rehearsal and service. Â We had to quickly turn the stage and reset to rehearse the band and have service. Â Sunday we had a “Sunrise Service” in the courtyard outside which added to the work for our tech team. Â It’s funny to me that we call it a sunrise service because the sun has actually been up for almost 2 hours….tradition (insert Fiddler On The Roof tune here.) Â Our two main services were packed out and went great. Â I love the energy that happens in services on Easter.
Here is the set from our main Easter services:
My Savior Lives (New Life Worship)
Savior (New Life Worship)
Nothing But The Blood (Traditional Hymn & Matt Redman’s Chorus)
Jesus Paid It All (Kristian Stanfill)
Christ The Lord Is Risen Today (Aaron Senseman)
The Saving One (Starfield)
I absolutely love this new song from Starfield, The Saving One:
“His Love Has Made A Way / The Grave Is Overcome / Jesus Is The Christ / The Saving One”
