Sunday Setlist - 07.17.11

Week #156 of Sunday Setlists. Here is our setlist for Sunday, July 17th.

- Open the Eyes of My Heart by Paul Baloche
- Mighty to Save by Hillsong
- Happy Day by Tim Hughes
- The Lord Reigns by Gateway Worship

This past Sunday was our 4th Annual Outdoor Service. We wanted to do something different and it's also become an outreach event as well. It's a lot of fun doing the service outdoors. It sure is a ton of work though with making sure the tents get set up, getting staging, and then getting all the sound gear set up. And that's just before the service, then we have tear everything down again and get everything re-connected in the sanctuary. By the time I left on Sunday, I had been at the church 11 hours. I'm just glad we don't do it more than once a year. We start the service a little later and then we do a big BBQ afterwards. This year we also had a rib cook-off contest. I had the privilege of being a judge! Then we had some water slides, a jump house, kiddie pools, and a slip-n-slide for some fun after the BBQ. The worship team sounded great. Being outdoors we don't have to worry as much about volume so we can really let loose a little bit. I also picked mostly up-tempo songs to help with that. All in all it was a really great time and I'm glad that we do it.

  1. The outside service sounds fun. I hope you had tons of visitors and exposure to your community. Do you have any pics of the set up?

  2. That sounds really fun actually. I'd also love to see some pictures if you have any.

    Also, I can totally understand how the setup and teardown can totally be tiring. Have you ever considered going with less instruments to make it easier? I could see the desire to have a full band outside to rock out.
