Behind The Song: The God Of Our Fathers

Our church is going through a series called, "The God Of Our Fathers," so I decided to write a song to accompany the series (yes, it has the same name). I'm a huge fan of churches writing their own songs (I've done so twice with this one and that one). There is something powerful about…Read more Behind The Song: The God Of Our Fathers

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 – 03/26/17

highlights: We all belted out verse 3 of How Deep The Father's Love this past weekend. The lyrics reminded us that Jesus is our only boast. No amount of good words or deeds could ever make us right in the sight of God; only Jesus. That is why He is our boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). In Him, we stand as sons…Read more Set List – 03/26/17

Set List – 03/19/17

highlights: The bridge of What A Beautiful Name really challenged me this past Sunday. It was one of those morning when things weren't going as planned (which happens more often than not) so I was becoming frustrated. I half-expected our congregation to sympathize with me but when I looked out into the room, I didn't see people really acknowledging me…Read more Set List – 03/19/17

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
