Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – February 11, 2018

Yesterday was our last Sunday before Lent begins.  Lent starts this Wednesday with Ash wednesday – and is 40 days and 40 nights before Easter.  It’s a time for pause, reflection, repentance and lament.  Our worship sets over the next few weeks will allow us some opportunities to slow our pace a bit and be more reflective.

We opened yesterday with All My Fountains

After the call to worship we sang Lay Me Down, Grace That is Greater Than All Our Sin, To Him and O Come to the Altar

Our offering song was My Victory – sung by Carlee Green.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – Febraury 4, 2018

It’s hard to believe that we’re already into February.  The year is already flying by – and we’ll be into March and our March 18th special worship service before you know it!  If you’d like to join us in choir – now is the perfect time to get involved.  We rehearse every Wednesday night from 6-7 in the choir room.  Drinks, snacks and childcare are provided and NO singing experience is necessary!

We opened yesterday with Glorious Day.

After the call to worship we sang This is Amazing Grace, All Hail the Pow’r of Jesus Name, The Stand, What a Beautiful Name and Holy Holy Holy (just verse 3).

Our offering song was Broken Vessels, sung by Jenny Pruitt.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – January 28, 2018

Yesterday morning was a choir Sunday.  I feel like everytime I write the recap for a choir sunday I always type “I love choir Sundays” and I really do – they’re my favorite.  I love having that many people coming together to lead OMPC in worship.  It’s such a fun fellowship/community group that just happens to sing music.  If you’ve thought about joining us – please do!  We meet on Wednesday nights from 6-7 in the choir room and provide drinks, snacks and childcare.

We opened yesterday with Unstoppable God

After the call to worship we sang Amazing God, Jesus, Amazing Grace (Chains are Gone) and Jesus Only Jesus

Our offering song was one of my favorites from All Sons and Daughters called All the Poor and Powerless

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday – January 14, 2018

Yesterday’s worship set focused our thoughts on the Holy Spirit, and the prayer for the Spirit’s work to fall on us at OMPC.

We opened with Awake My Soul – a hymn re-write from an Isaac Watts hymn text.

After the call to worship we sang Soul on Fire, O 4 a 1000 Tongues (with the Crowder chorus), Savior King, and Oceans.

Our offering song was a new tune (to OMPC) called Holy Spirit.  And since no fewer than 42 Christian artists have done their rendition of this tune – we used Francesca Battistelli’s roadmap.

Join us in choir!  We’ve resumed rehearsals and are preparing for our “Not Really Palm Sunday Spectacular Spectacular” which will be on March 18.

After our call to worship we sang Arise, The Same Love, There is a Fountain, and Before the Throne of God Above
