Kevin’s Weekend Update: 9-13-09

Church went well on Sunday.  We did a little less music than normal because it was a very full service.  And I taught a new song to our church that they just LOVED!  It’s written by Brian Doerksen, titled: “Holy God”.  Wow!  What an amazing song!  It’s super easy, very simple and very singable.  But it’s so powerful; the words have awakened my heart in a very real way.  Our church was standing on their feet by the second chorus; arms raised… it was very moving.

Check out this youtube link of Brian performing the song live with just his guitar.  Or if you want to hear the album version of the song; you can listen to this video.  It’s such a great song, but not many people know about it.  Spread the word: this song is an anointed worship song!

Here’s what we did on Sunday:

  • Your Grace is Enough (Chris Tomlin – Great opening song!)
  • Unchanging (Chris Tomlin – Good followup song; they have the same first lines!)
  • Holy God (Brian Doerksen – Man… I can’t say enough about this song!)
  • Holy, Holy, Holy (Hymn – we came right out of the new song into this hymn; awesome!)
  • Welcome / Greeting
  • Mission Focus: Testimony from short-term team to Australia
  • Presentation of Sunday School award
  • Commission new Sunday School leaders
  • Prayer for offering
  • Sweetly Broken (Jeremy Riddle – We did this as a special song; great text!)
  • Message: “It’s Who You Know” – Daniel 3
  • Closing Song: Holy God Reprise
