ACF Worship Set List 9/30 - 10/1
This weekend I'm going to be leading worship at Austin Christian Fellowship for their weekend services. This has been a pretty regular thing, especially the past few months. Thought I'd post the set-list, and any thoughts behind my choices. To be honest, it's nothing deep or profound behind the songs I chose this weekend. It's coming at a really weird time, we're walking with a friend through an incredibly difficult season in their life, I was asked pretty last minute to fill in, I've got another full time job to worry about, my birthday is next week, we're dogsitting. Okay, maybe the last one doesn't seem like that big of a deal, but I have enough trouble taking care of my fish, let alone someone else's dog. Alright, enough of my problems with caring for living things, enjoy this set-list.
1. The Lion and The Lamb - Leeland
I just like this song. I think it's a good first song to bring people in and get them excited. It's also one that I know the congregation is familiar with. Since I'm not their worship leader on staff, and just filling in, I think one of the most important things you could do is at least make sure you're doing songs the congregation will know and be comfortable singing along to.
2. Give Me Faith - Elevation Worship
Remember what I just said about the congregation knowing songs? Forget all of that. I don't think they've ever done this song at ACF. I chose this one because the sermon series starting this week is called "Becoming a Person of Faith". I've always loved this song, and I thought it would be a great one to lead in the new series.
3. Great Things (Worth It All) - .....also Elevation Worship
For some reason, I really struggled getting a song to put here in the middle. The other three came fairly easy, but nothing else I was putting in this spot felt right. The flow felt weird. The messages didn't really connect between the song before it or after it. I tried switching things around. Still nothing. In the end, it didn't come down to some deep decision. Similar to the first song I picked one the congregation would know, and seemed to fit the best in this set.
4. You Never Let Go - Matt Redman
This one is more of a personal choice. Without getting into too much detail, there's a lot going on right now. In my life, this church's life, there are broken relationships, confusion. Bleh, I don't even know how to type it out, so I won't try too hard. I just feel like this song has a good message to remember for myself and for the congregation at ACF.
Well, there you have it! The worship set list for this weekend at Austin Christian Fellowship.
