I failed to post last week’s recap, as I was enjoying a couple days on the lake.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – June 24, 2018

I’m helping out at The Edge this week with our Jr High and our incredible youth staff, but drove back yesterday to be at Oak Mountain.  Ken Jones was also filling in for Bob and preached on “Christ the Triple Cure.”

We opened yesterday with Glorious Day

After the call to worship we sang Arise, Jesus What a Friend for Sinners, To Him and At the Cross

Our offering song was a new tune that Jeff Sauceda introduced to us call The Lion and the Lamb.

GUYS!  Mark your calendars for July 29th – our 15th Annual Bullfrog Choir.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – June 10, 2018

This past week was VBS here at OMPC.  We had almost 600 kids, and another 225+ adult volunteers helping to make the week a huge success.  It’s great to see so many different staff and ministries come together to help pull the week off!

This week Bob preached through Acts 12:1-17 – on mystery.  As I contemplated and planned the worship set – the idea of mystery took my thoughts to amazement, which then led me to I Stand Amazed, and from there I built the rest of the set.  I’m amazed at the mystery of God’s pursuit of me despite ME.  Even the title of the offering song was the epitome of mystery for me – His grace finds me…  Quite the mystery.

We opened yesterday with Our God Saves

After the call to worship we sang Beautiful One, I Stand Amazed, Good Good Father and Before the Throne of God Above

Our offering song was Your Grace Finds Me.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – June 3, 2018

It was great to be back at OMPC yesterday.  Such a great privilege to worship alongside this great congregation.  Yesterday was one our “we don’t normally have this musical style” with a fiddle, acoustic guitar only, and hollow body bass along with some percussion.

We opened yesterday with Here For You

After the call to worship we sang Jesus, Reckless Love, What a Beautiful Name and Lord I Need You

Our offering song was a new tune for OMPC called He Will Hold Me Fast from the Gettys.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – May 27, 2018

I failed to do a recap for last Sunday – but hey, i took a day of vacation…

For those of you curious – Jeff Sauceda led worship for me, so very talented and SO capable of stepping in and leading so well

They opened with O 4 a 1000 Tongues with the Crowder chorus

After the call to worship they sang Joyful, Unstoppable God and O Come to the Altar

The offering song was a new tune for OMPC called Lion and the Lamb


Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – May 20, 2018

We heard yesterday from Micah McElveen of Vapor Ministries about his testimony and the work Vapor is doing in Haiti to restore and transform the most impoverished communities.  Yesterday was also Pentecost Sunday – the day we celebrate the sending of the Holy Spirit.

We opened yesterday with All My Fountains  with an appropriate chorus for Pentecost “open the Heavens – come living water…”

After the call to worship we sang Soul on Fire, Immortal Invisible God Only Wise, Never Once and Great Are You Lord

Our offering song was Holy Spirit led by Carlee Green

Join us this Sunday for only ONE worship service at 10:45

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – May 13, 2018

Yesterday was Mother’s Day and our traditional “kids lead worship” Sunday – where our Kids choir, supplemented by anyone from the gym that wants to join in, leads us in worship (taking the place of our typical praise team).  It’s always so fun, and a great reminder of the child-like faith, simplicity, and abandon that we’re called to in worship.

We opened yesterday with a Jana Alayra song called Treasure Quest

After the call to worship we sang Victory in Jesus, By Faith, Here I Am to Worship and Lay it Down

Our offering song was a Mother’s Day song that my wife Mandy wrote a few years ago called One Mother’s Prayer


Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – May 6, 2018

Yesterday was a “show up and sing” choir Sunday – as we’ve done the past few years on this Sunday (*this Sunday being a late-spring sunday where we haven’t had weekly choir rehearsals).  We had a great turnout – so much so that it’s probably time to start bringing out another section of risers.  Always a great problem to have!

We opened yesterday with Even So Come

After the call to worship we sang Everlasting God, Good Good Father, Praise to the Lord the Almighty and Waiting Here for You

Our offering song was the new-ish tune from Matt Maher called Your Love Defends Me

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – April 29, 2018

Yesterday was the final Sunday of April, and also the concluding day of our Women’s Beach Retreat – so many dads were thrilled that their wives were on the way home!  Bob also continued his series in the Book of Acts with Acts 9 – Saul’s conversion.

We opened with Glorious Day

After the call to worship we sang Your Grace is Enough, The Same Love, Come Thou Fount and Reckless Love

Our offering song was Broken Vessels (Amazing Grace)

If you’re in choir – join us this coming Sunday for “Show Up and Sing” Sunday!  We’ll have a brief runthrough at 9:45 and then lead for the 10:45 service.  Hope to see you there!
