One chapter ending, another beginning (a.k.a. SHCC Sunday Setlist 10-19-08)

This day had some of the most conflicting emotions I’ve had leading musical praise, during our gathering (which was a combination of our 8:30 and 11:00 gatherings) our preaching minister announced his resignation. All is good with the leaders, nothing bad causing this change, but rather God is leading this family to help a church family that classifies themselves as a mile wide and an inch deep spiritually. God is awesome in how he as prepared us for this transition as our recently hired evangelism minister is also a preaching minister. So this transition should be somewhat seamless.

Our morning was purposely themed toward our future with Christ, rooted in Philippians chapter 1; using the idea that “he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus”.  

Musically, we blended some old with some new, our team nailed it. It was great to part of this effort to praise God. J 

Majesty ~ Jack Hayford


1st set

In My Heart There Rings A Melody ~ Elton Roth

            This was a fun song to do. We used piano and bass on the verses and then at the chorus did a severe ritard with “In my heart there”… at this point we added drums and guitars. The remainder of the chorus our drummer played triplets which really added a fun feel to the song. J  

Now That You’re Near ~ Hillsong

            This is a staple for us; we ended with the pre-chorus to emphasize the future minded theme of the morning.

Scripture – Psalm 46

            I used this scripture in light of the coming announcement of the resignation.

It is Well ~ Horatio Spafford/Philip Bliss

            We added a little of our own creativity to this song after the 3rd verse/chorus. Playing it in the key of B primarily led by piano until this point. After the 3rd v/ch we add guitars and play an interlude using 1 measure of F# and 1 meausre of E & B, two beats each. This comes into play at the end of the song also where we’ve added a tag: “Oh praise the Lamb of God, He died to make me whole”. Ala Kristen Stanfills; Jesus Paid it All.


Here I am to Worship ~ Tim Hughes

            Started in D, after 1st chorus changed to E. Went well, had a cool guitar solo mixed in.

Saviour King – Hillsong

            Great song, our people love and really got into it, making the ending huge with loud voices. J

Opportunities of services in Worship

            Night Light Festival sign-up: we made a big push today to get people involved in our Halloween outreach event. We add tables set up in the auditorium for people to go to and sign up for booths to operate and other ways to help.

Message and the announcement

Closing song of encouragement

Promise ~ Steve Sprecker

     This is a song I wrote awhile ago and it really helped out today. The lyrics remind us that God is with us (strength/hope/love) until the day he takes us home.


This is part of the carnival hosted by Fred McKinnon.

    “a mile wide and an inch deep”

    I understand that. We took our present church almost 4 years ago, and it was the same thing. God bless him for following the call. I pray for a smooth transition for you guys. great set.
