Monday Morning Recap for Sunday July 20, 2014

I loved the way Robbie Hinton opened our 10:45 service yesterday - reminding us that we LONG for so much, and so often the harried nature of our summer vacations represent just that - trying to achieve shalom through the perfect vacation, and of course posting pictures online.  How is God trying to recapture your attention to stare at his gaze?

We opened yesterday with Famous One.

After our call to worship we sang Beautiful One, The Stand, Holy (by Matt Redman), and Fairest Lord Jesus.

Our offering song was a tune that I just love from Brenton Brown called Adoration.

GUYS!  Join us this Sunday for our 11th Annual Bullfrog Choir.  We'll have a brief run-through at 10AM - and then lead worship for the 10:45 service.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday July 6, 2014

Enjoyed a one-service Sunday yesterday with folks being out for the 4th.  Nevertheless, a great crowd, great singing, and a terrific sermon from Bob.  If you missed it - you can always check it out on iTunes.

We opened yesterday with a hymn re-write called Awake My Soul - words by Isaac Watts.

After our call to worship we sang You Lifted Me Out, The Same Love, I Stand Amazed, and Lay it Down.

Our offering song was a new tune from Hillsong United called Relentless.  Gonna be a great tune for Oak Mountain to sing together.

GUYS!  Join us in just three more sundays on the 27th for Bullfrog Choir!  Great time for ALL guys of the church to get up and sing or croak.  Easy tunes, no rehearsal, and no singing experience needed.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday June 29, 2014

It doesn't seem like June should be over - the year is flying by.  Our next big event for the Worship Ministry is our 11th annual Bullfrog Choir - coming up at the end of July on the 27th.  GREAT time for all men of the church to get involved in leading worship.  No former singing experience is necessary.  Guys - come and lead by singing (or croaking) whatever you sing or croak in the pew.  with over 100 guys singing at once, you'll blend right in, and be able to help model worshipping for your family.

We opened last Sunday with All Who Are Thirsty.

After our call to worship we sang All Because of Jesus, Crown Him with Many Crowns, Jesus Only Jesus, and Enough.

Our offering song was Oceans - sung by Carlee Green.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday June 22, 2014

The Choir led in worship last Sunday.  I love choir Sundays.  Great group of people, great friends, great time of community and fellowship.  Also had a great guitar solo at the end of Blessed Be Your Name by one of my longest serving guitarist - Jack Swaim.  As Bob has quoted many times, from that great movie Chariots of Fire - "when I run I feel God's pleasure," when Jack plays his guitar, I sense God's pleasure.  Something amazingly humble happens when Jack cuts loose.  It's never too much, always fits, and always leads me closer to the throne.

We opened last Sunday with Never Stop Singing - a song from Tim Hughes that we introduced to Oak Mountain at this year's Palm Sunday service.

After our call to worship we sang Come Christians Join to Sing, Forever Reign, One Thing Remains, and Blessed Be Your Name.

Our offering was Lord I Need You - a great tune from Matt Maher

Choir takes a break for the rest of summer, and will resume regular rehearsals on Wednesday August 13th!

We had the great privilege of hearing from David Conrad, as Bob was out of town yesterday in preparation for General Assembly.  If you missed it - you can always catch the Sunday morning sermon on our iTunes page

We opened yesterday with White Flag.

After our call to worship we sang Let God Arise, Our God Saves, Center, and Be Thou My Vision.

Our offering song was a new tune from Matt Redman (new to Oak Mountain at least) called Jesus Only Jesus.

Our worship choir will be leading in worship this Sunday.  Join us Wednesday night from 6-7 for rehearsal and then join us Sunday morning as we sing!
