Each week I try to blog about our Sunday Service.
I include this post in the blog over at Fred McKinnon's site.
There you can see lots of worship leaders talk about their services.
I encourage you to check it out.

When I planned the service, I did it this way thinking that the opening choir song would be an upbeat way to get everyone awake and involved in the worship. Unfortunately, something was up with the sound mix and the choir was difficult to hear. From there the service got just slower. I'm afraid I danced on that fine line between worshipful and sleepy today, and I fell on the wrong side of it a time or two. The service was a little more old school than our normal. We had a good mix of songs, but the two 80's choruses didn't help pick up the pace of the service any. Overall a good service, but I think I should have incorporated more celebration or upbeat songs.
I am looking forward to tonight though. Normally our Sunday nights are traditional Baptist formation: 3 hymns and a "special". We started having an entire rhythm section on the 3rd Sunday night of each month, so tonight I think we'll have some fun.
How was your Sunday?
