Well, here it goes!  This is my very last Worship Confessional as the Worship Pastor at Glenville Church (and likely anywhere, as we are moving into a different phase of ministry).  We finished our service just a while ago, and will be heading back to the church in a bit to have a get together with our church family to say goodbye.   I always hate this part.  Goodbyes are hard, especially when they are not really what you had planned.  We will miss Glenville, but are excited to see what adventure is ahead.  This week, we will be finishing all the packing, and then Thursday, we will head up to Michigan to stay with some family for a bit.  We will post an update on all that once we get up there and get settled.  For now, take a look at my last Sunday Setlist:

  • Mighty To SaveFielding/Morgan
  • God You ReignBrewster/Fieldes

Intro of nominated deacons to church

  • Glory To God ForeverFee/Beeching (This has been a theme song for me the last several months. It really conveys the message I want to leave)

Drama – Live In Me (Everyone did excellent!  As always!  Thanks guys! Especially you DQ!)

Message – Pastor spoke today on the purity of the church

Offering/Testimony (I got to share for a few minutes with the church)

It was a good day. An emotional day.  And now, we press on to the great white and cold north!  This post is also part of Sunday Setlists at

At this time of year, most people are thinking a lot about changes they will make next year.  I always love the start of a new year.  The new challenges and opportunities excite me and allow me to grow and hopefully do things better. There are all kinds of changes to be made, whether it be physically, emotionally, relationally or spiritually. I think every one of those areas needs a good evaluation so that we are not fooled into thinking we are better off than what we are. That brings me to the biggest and most life-changing thing you can do to make changes in your life, and really, the reason for this post.

It is easy to have a desire to change.  We all have good intentions.  But, good intentions are at best, good intentions unless acted upon.  Do you want to change your life?  Do you want to make changes that will stick? Then here is the single biggest thing you can do: read your Bible. It holds the answers to life.  It is the road map that God has given us to make great change… change that will last. Do you want to know God better?  Read His Word!  There is nothing  that will change you more than that!

To help you, has a great web-based Bible reader that has many versions to choose from, called  They also have several different reading plans that will help you to keep on track for the next year.  You can choose plans that will last an entire year, a few months or customize your own plan.  It is a great tool to help you as get into God’s Word.  There are other options on the web, in book stores and even likely at your church that you can get a hold of and get started.  It doesn’t matter what you use, just do something!

If you could only make one change for the year, this would be the one: read God’s Word!  More tomorrow…

I am actually on vacation this weekend, so I am not leading at G’ville.  I have a very capable team that can lead (better than I can really) in my absence.  I appreciate them so much, and am thankful God has gifted them as worship leaders!  Here is the setlist that they are leading this weekend.  I am sure that all went well, and I look forward to being back in the sale next weekend!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  I know, not very original!  But I do love this Holiday Season.  I love the focus of Thanksgiving, the celebration of Christmas and the fresh start of the New Year!

We started our new three week series today called “The Gift.”  Yes, it is a very simple title, but it is a very simple message that we are trying to present about God being the ultimate giver and Jesus being the ultimate gift!  We have a three week drama we are presenting that one of our ladies wrote for us (Thanks Patti!), and the choir is adding a few songs to it to make for a wonderful time of celebration! We scaled back our congregational singing for the next three weeks to have the time we need for everything.  We will sing some carols throughout the set though is a variety of ways.  Today we used just a piano and had congregational singing intertwined within the drama.  Here is the flow for the day:

Video – 12 Crazy Days of Christmas

Special – “A Baby Changes Everything”  (Fantastic job Misty!)

Welcome to guests


Choir songs used within the drama (all songs for the three weeks are from Prestonwood’s “Gloria” published by Prism Music.

Carols used today within the drama:

  • Joy To The World
  • Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
  • O Come All Ye Faithful

I was so proud of the job our crew did today.  The technical crews were right on today, and the drama and vocals all did an amazing job!  Thanks everyone!  This post is also part of Sunday Setlists at Fred McKinnon [dot] com.


Today just capped off a wonderful week of celebrating Thanksgiving! I love getting to spend the extra time with my family… and then being with and hearing from church family in services today was just the icing on the cake!  Our services today were unique and very personal as we heard from several families today.  Our Pastor had 8 different families share thoughts on giving thanks from different aspects and different life situations.  It was very touching, and put everything on a very personal level.  Here is the set list:

  • Sing, Sing, SingCarson, Gilder, Nunn, Reeves, Tomlin
