Sunday, May 13 Recap

After missing a couple of Sundays for some family time I was excited about being back at the church this week and to lead worship on Sunday. We had a really solid team (including a new keyboard player!), the song flow worked really well and our second service included a bunch of child dedications so we had a whole whack of visitors with us, too.

Every year we take a week and focus on our global outreach efforts. For the second year in a row we brought our friend Justus Miwanda from Uganda to come and speak to us. He was around all week spending time in our various ministries and then preached on Sunday morning. We had asked him to tell the North American church what it needed to hear from an African. Justus preached from the parable of the good Samaritan and focused mostly on the fact that the Samaritan went to him - how we must be willing to GO to those who need to be helped.

Sunday, May 13 - "Beyond Our Four Walls"
"He Went To Him"
Ancient of Days - Gary Sadler & Jamie Harvill
Holy Is The Lord - Chris Tomlin & Louie Giglio
Because Of Your Love - Paul Baloche & Brenton Brown

You Are - Mark Roach
Shout To The Lord - Darlene Zschech

Give Us Clean Hands - Charlie Hall

Two real highlights for me this week - we had done "You Are" once before as a presentation song on Celebration Sunday at the end of our Beyond initiative but we dropped the key to F and did it as a congregational this week. The response was awesome! This is definitely getting added to our regular repertoire. The second really cool thing was just the great energy the congregation had at the second service in response to the child dedications. Anytime you put babies on stage people are going to think it's awesome!
