Kevin’s Weekend Review: 11-15-09

Church on Sunday was pretty cool.  I put together a Veteran’s Day celebration at the beginning of the service and it was a hit!  I tried to get the Junior ROTC from our local high school to come and do an Honor Guard to present the colors, but it didn’t work out.  Maybe next year.  But I did get all our Veteran’s to come in their uniform and one of our currently serving members gave a brief message on freedom.  At the end, all the Veteran’s came on stage and we prayed for them.  It was pretty powerful!

The rest of the service was good; but that image of over 40 Veterans standing on stage is still so clear.  We had a smaller band this Sunday, which worked out really well because we’ve been having some monitor issues.  I was happy with how things turned out and got some good feedback after church:

  • Prelude: National Anthem (no Honor Guard; hopefully next year)
  • Brief message on Freedom (Chris McDaniel)
  • Welcome Time
  • Mission Focus: Angel Tree Ministry
  • Body Life / Prayer for Offering
  • He Reigns (Newsboys)
  • Lord Most High (Can’t remember who wrote this)
  • All Creatures of Our God and King(David Crowder arrangement)
  • Always (United)
  • God of Wonders (Marc Byrd / Third Day)
  • Message: How Did it All Begin? – Genesis 1-2 (Pastor Mike)
  • Postlude: God of Wonders
