Archives For Sunday Setlists

It was really good to be back leading today after taking a week off.  The first Sunday of the year always feels so fresh and new. I LOVE the new year and all the changes that come with it.  Speaking of change, today was a day of changes announced at our church.  Our Lead Pastor told the church that our financial situation at the church has necessitated some major changes needing to take place so that the church can maintain ministry.  We have had a lot of job losses affect our people and offerings have really suffered because of that.  With all that said, our Pastor let the congregation know that two of the full time staff pastors will be leaving.  I am one of those. I will write another post about it later.  For now, let’s get to the setlist!

Special Music – “Something More” (Kristy Starling)  Misty did a great job!

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!

This was our last week of our message series called “The Gift.”  There is not much that I can say to brag on my teams other than “awesome.”  Everyone did a great job!  The choir was enthusiastic, the solists and cast did super!  There was nothing that could have been done any better.  We actually had a day with NO congregational singing.  That is the first time I have ever done that, but with the timing of everything else we just did not have time.  Anyways, here is the order of the day:

Video announcements from our pastor

Baptism (how cool is it to get baptized at Christmas time!  Never gets old to see people do this)

Christmas Video Setup for drama

Drama w/Choir – Songs used:

I am excited to start the new year!  The next two weeks will be nice as we celebrate the holidays!  I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!  This post is also part of Sunday Setlists at Fred McKinnon [dot] com.


Today was the second in our series called “The Gift.”  The big idea for the day was “giving ourselves to God,” because He gave His Son for us.  Our drama, vocals and tech teams all did a wonderful job in their areas.  Everything went off without a hitch!  I am so proud of our team!  The version of “The Little Drummer Boy” is probably one of my favorite arrangements this year.  My son played a hand drum along with it.  I will try and post a video of it tomorrow sometime.  Anyways, on to the setlist!

What an awesome time of year!  I know I have said it the last couple of weeks, but I do it!  I hope everyone is having a great holiday season!  Next week, we present the last part of our series!  Cannot wait to see what God does!  This post is also part of Sunday Setlists at Fred McKinnon [dot] com.


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:
