Set List – 04/23/17 (Last Sunday with Resonate)

highlights: There wasn't really a "highlight" for this past weekend. The only word that most accurately describes it is "unforgettable." It was my last Sunday as the Music & Worship Arts Director at Emmanuel Faith Community Church, aka the Resonate Worship Leader. Emmanuel Faith has been much more than my place of employment. The people who work…Read more Set List – 04/23/17 (Last Sunday with Resonate)

Set List – 04/16/17 (Easter Sunday)

highlights: Glorious Day is THE Easter song. As I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of holiday specific tunes, but this one is an exception. Easter is a BIG deal for Christians. Had not Jesus died and rose again, we would have no hope (1 Peter 1:3-5). Through Him, we celebrate the hope of…Read more Set List – 04/16/17 (Easter Sunday)

Set List – 04/02/17

highlights: Only King Forever is ALWAYS a highlight for me. The song is so anthem-atic (yes, I totally made that word up). The lyrics and feel of the song really energize our church; kind of like how a "we will rock you" chant energizes a crowd at a sports game. The bridge lyrics are probably my favorite in the…Read more Set List – 04/02/17

Behind The Song: There Is Hope

I feel like there are not a ton of upbeat worship songs nowadays, which is slightly ironic because being a Christian is a joyful thing. Of course, there are difficult aspects. As co-heirs with Christ Jesus, we are assured of sharing in His sufferings but also of sharing in His glory (Romans 8:16-17). Our present trials…Read more Behind The Song: There Is Hope

Set List – 03/12/17

highlights: We sang What A Beautiful Name for this first time this past weekend. In classic fashion, Brooke Ligertwood (Fraser) hit another home run with this song. We're currently in our Global Outreach series. The theme, No Longer Strangers, is meant to signify that there are no strangers in the family of God (Ephesians 2:11-22). Salvation through Jesus is not for a…Read more Set List – 03/12/17

We’re in The Upside Down (Kind Of; Minus the Demogorgon) 

The current age of the Church feels like an “Upside Down” of sorts (thank you, Stranger Things). We know that Jesus already came to save us from our sins (Hebrews 10:1-18). We also know that He is coming back to claim us (John 14:1-3), but we don’t know when exactly (Matthew 24:42-44). So what do we…Read more We’re in The Upside Down (Kind Of; Minus the Demogorgon) 

Set List – 01/22/17

highlights: Give Me Faith went OFF. The lyrics seemed to really connect with our people on Sunday morning. I found that the words were especially timely for me in light of the morning's events. Our team had a pretty rough day. Issues kept surfacing from broken instruments and gear to failed expectations in our personal lives. For me as the leader,…Read more Set List – 01/22/17
