9.7.14 Worship Rewind

Worship Rewind 2013

  • Today Is The Day – Lincoln Brewster
  • Mission’s Flame – Matt Redman
  • No Turning Back – Chris Tomlin

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been at church due to ministry responsibilities and a family vacation so it was good to be back at GraceLife to see everyone and lead worship.

Back at the start of summer, we took a lot of the band off the stage due to a) doing something different and b) we meet in a gym so we wanted to see the dynamic differences in volume. Today, we brought the drums back but scaled them down significantly. We only had a snare, kick and high hats and it proved to sound great and enough not to wash out the lyrics.

Someone asked me the other day how our church was doing. I mentioned that GraceLife is growing. Growing not just numerically but spiritually which is more important. I can see that as we sing. Folks are engaging more and more and I believe when people begin to realize that worship is a way of life and the singing is a form of prayer in song then we begin to tangibly see lives being changed because the fruit of change is an outward expression of what God is doing on the inside. This was evident today as we sang. That blesses me.

Pastor Carlo shared with us a new vision for the church really stressing life on mission. Instead of being a consumer at church we should be contributors and live a life on mission to reach people in our rhythms of life with the gospel of Christ. Next week, we get to have a panel discussion of what that looks like and in a couple of weeks, I get to share our vision of what GraceLife Lewisburg will look like. It’s going to be a great month.
