The Kids led in worship yesterday. As Bob put it – the kids have a way of leading us to more uninhibited worship – and we presbyterians could stand a bit more of that. I will say that i was astounded by how many fists I saw in the air during the chorus of “let the praises ring.”
For those interested – yesterday’s team consisted of a full band (from my normal teams), a youth trio (made up of the youth that work with our kids on Sunday mornings), a 6-voice kids praise team, and 58 kids (78 during 2nd service) on choir risers.
We opened with So Good To Me.
After our call to worship, we sang Let the Praises Ring (Brewster), Indescribable (in the key of C), Break Through (T. Walker), and A Mighty Fortress (knockels).
Our offering song was Consuming Fire (Tim Hughes). Again – Hillsong United did a recording of this tune – and I think it’s 23 minutes long. We did it in about 3 1/2 minutes.
Choir sings this week. Come join us – Rehearsal this Wednesday night. 6-7.
