Sunday Setlist - Happy Mother's Day!

The setlist for Mother's Day 2009 at Gospel Light Community Church looked like this:

Opening Song:

Revelation Song (Riddle)(G)

Main Set:

Tell the World (Douglass,Houston, Sampson)(G)
One Way (Houston, Douglass)(B)
Your Grace is Enough(Maher)(G)
How Great is Our God(Tomlin, Reeves, Cash)(G)
Came to My Rescue(Davies, Sampson, Thomas)(G)

Lot of acoustic work for me today, at least that was the plan. Only the first to songs in the main set were getting electric. Good workout for me! "Tell the World" and "One Way" are songs that we are so used to from our recording project, that the fun part is trying to switch them up.

"How Great..." worked out really nicely today. We did about a six or seven-minute version of it, and could have done more. We all know it's a great song, but it really worked well in the set today. I broke my B string during "Came to My Rescue." That's annoying. We really use the acoustic to drive the rhythm on the verses. Fortunately, it was during the bridge, so Justin was able to pick up the heavy work on the piano while I switched guitars. It actually sounded pretty good, kicking in with the electric at the end. We did a short reprise of that song as well, really slow, just at the end of worship time. Nice.

We also had our Send Judah First choir combine with the Kidzport group to sing I Need You To Survive by Hezekiah Walker. That is one of the favorite songs that Judah sings, and it carried special meaning on this Mother's Day. There's a video of part of the song below.

Our tradition every year is to have the youngest child in a family come to the front and get a carnation for their mother. We do make sure every mother gets recognizes, and we also acknowledged our oldest mother (who's 94) and our newest mother (who had her first child last month.) Then we have the children gather around the mothers and pray for them. Mother's Day is always a great service.

After our service, I was fortunate to be able to go see Joel Klampert lead worship at Archanges Church. Joel lives about two and a half hours away, but was down for today and invited me to come. So I got some "bonus" worship! He did a song of his own, Hosanna by Paul Baloche, Amazed by Jared Anderson, King of Wonders by CompassionArt and he also did Your Grace is Enough.

This setlist is part of the setlist carnival hosted at Fred McKinnon's blog. Go check it out.
Send Judah First and KidzPort:


  1. Sounds like a great service. Those broken strings are annoying, aren't they? We tend to linger on How Great Is Our God. It's a very worshipful song.

  2. I love "Revelation Song"! I got so mad at myself the last time we sang it because I couldn't keep it together. I was so overwhelmed by emotion that I cried during the song. I felt as if I were a distraction to the congregation. Ugg! Such an awesome song. I hate messing it up.

  3. I agree with Steff - I rarely make it through that song without some tears, but an awesome way to kick off the day! Great setlist.
