Sunday Setlist - August 30
It was an interesting day at Gospel Light this morning. You might remember, our founding senior pastor left in July to plant a church in the Bronx, New York City.
Today was the last day for our youth pastor, who is also leaving to pioneer a church plant. Elyano has also been our main drummer for several years, and part of his team includes Danny, our bass player. So today was the last day playing with these two wonderful musicans in a regular Sunday worship service. It was bittersweet, as we know they are moving on to advance God's kingdom, but we will miss them deeply.
Onto the setlist!
Revelation Song (Riddle)(D)
One Way (Houston/Douglass)(B)
For Who You Are (Sampson)(B)
Mighty to Save (Morgan)(A)
Eres Todopoderoso (Salinas)(D)
Blow the Trumpet (Tendrup)(Dm)
"Freedom" by Eddie James is fast becoming one of the favorite songs of the congregation, and is one of the best to open a worship service. Josh and the girls did a great job today, leading the congregation to act out the parts of the song - clapping, jumping, spinning, and especially shouting. I thought they were gonna blow the windows out. Everyone was shaking their hands during the "no more shackles, no more chains..." lyric. If you don't know the song, check out the video in this post.
The setlist was picked out by Danny this week, and included some of his favorites. I also included our offering songs because "Blow the Trumpet is one of Elyano's favorite songs to play. It's one of the oldest songs we do with any regularity, but it is (to us) a classic, and part of the fabric of our church.
