4.24.11 (Easter) set list

Yesterday was an amazing day for our church.  We had the most people we have had yet (100+) and we were able to celebrate the Resurrection.  This is something that I am just starting to understand.  He rose from the dead.  That’s crazy.  Let it saturate your every thought this week.  But the same power that rose Him can raise you from your sin and disouragement.  Let us continue to proclaim His resurrection.  Without this, nothing else would have mattered.

We also had some salvations, rededications, and people singing out to our God like never before.  We are in that stage of breakthrough we have been praying for.

Also, our youth were leading the charge for heaven’s gates yesterday.  All the great awakenings begin with the young people of our churches.  They are not the future of our church.  They are our church.  They will continue to lead the charge.

Here was our set list:

Your Grace is enough – Chris Tomlin
Our God – Chris Tomlin
Mighty to save – Hillsong
How he loves/Set a fire/How great is our God – John Mark McMillan, Will Reagan, Chris Tomlin

Ready now – Desperation Band

We also introduced a new element that we are going to be doing more and more of.  VIDEOS!!! (we are behind in the learning curve, I guess.)

Here was this week’s video:

Set List 4.10.11

This weekend was a restful one for me going to the beach to visit family but I unfortunately was out of town for our weekly Sunday gathering.  I did hear from many that God did some great work in our church.  Tim’s message is great about the Holy Spirit.

The podcast should be up soon.

But I just want to thank Tommy for leading us this past week.  He has been a great encouragement by being in our worship ministry and I continue to anticipate God using him greatly in the present and in the near future through 24/7 and through whatever God calls him to do.

Also thanks to Michele Martino and Chris Garren for helping out at 24/7 when they don’t normally attend.  We love that we have such great guest worship leaders who can lead our church into His presence.

Here was the set list:

Your Grace is enough – Chris Tomlin
Marvelous Light – Charlie Hall
Where you go I go – Jesus Culture/Kim Walker
Jesus, Lover of my soul – Hillsong

Hosanna – Hillsong/Brooke Fraser

Come join us this next Sunday as we talk more about the Life You’ve Always Wanted and how God uses His Holy Spirit to work through us.

300,000

Did you know that Greensboro has the 69th highest population in the United States? I had no idea until recently praying for our city.

As those who know me are aware, it is a huge passion of mine to see God do wonders in our city.  There are almost 300,000 people in our city.  Most of which have not yet been to church.  Most have not yet gotten to know our Saviour.  Most have never set foot in a church.  I would guess that about 200,000 people in our city do not or will not go to church.

We feel that it is our job as 24/7, and as Christians, to reach them however God calls us to.

Last night, the elders at 24/7 met and I was just struck with how much passion they have and how much they desire to reach people in this city.  I serve on a great team.  And I am blessed to be a part of this ministry.

Yet I am realizing how little we can do by ourselves.  24/7’s desire is to see people pouring their lives out for God to see a city redeemed.  And yet, we can’t do this by ourselves.  If 24/7 had 5,000 people on a Sunday morning, we would be seen as a success, but there would still be 200,000 people in our city (just Greensboro) that will not have heard the message of Christ.  That is not success to me.  That is a utter failure.

I don’t want to grow our church through people transferring to it.  That’s not my heart.  I would love to have more sold out Christians joining our mission but only if they know that our church doesn’t exist for them.  It exists to reach and redeem this city.

So today, I’m praying for all the churches in our city.  Will you join me?  Please leave a comment with your prayer and what God is doing in your church.  I sincerely would love to know.
This post was first sparked by pastor Jay Hardwick on this post.

for the present? or for the future?

I saw this on a new blog I just started following, Boyd Bettis.

We must decide whether we want our ministry to count,
In the momentary applause of popular recognition
Or in the reproduction of our lives in a few chosen people
Who will carry on our work after we have gone.
Really it is a question of which generation we are living for.

I know that I tend to focus on what I’m done now  more than preparing for the future.

Where do you see yourself standing?  For the present?  Or for the future?
