Monday Morning Recap for Sunday - July 26, 2015

Had a glorious morning with ALL the bullfrogs.  Had the largest group yet - all up singing and leading.  Such an incredible sound when you get that many fellas (and their sons) all belting out these great tunes and truths.  We're already in process to purchase a couple more sections of risers - gotta plan for the future!

We opened yesterday with Here For You.

After our call to worship we sang This is Amazing Grace, Stronger, Jesus Paid it All, and How Deep the Father's Love for Us.

Our offering song was a tune that we did a few years ago, with a small mens group, called Alive Again from Matt Maher.  Did it again in the same format - with 40% of the original group, and a few new faces!

Bullfrog Choir is THIS Sunday!

One of my favorite Sundays out of the entire year is this Sunday - our 12th Annual Bullfrog Choir!! The morning's worship set provides an opportunity for EVERY guy (and their sons) at OMPC to come and help lead in worship.  

The reason, though, that this particular Sunday is so important to me, is that it gives us husbands and dads and opportunity to model worshipping our Lord for our wives and kids.  It gives us - the men of OMPC, an opportunity to actively demonstrate what the psalmist meant when he commanded shouting, clapping, and singing a new song.  He wasn't just speaking to those that "had a great singing voice."  He was reminding us that ALL of us are gifted with the privilege of bringing honor and praise to our God.  Bullfrog choir allows all of us guys to join together and serve our families, and our church, by worshipping.

So fellas - whether this is your 12th time singing with us, or your first time even hearing about the Bullfrog Choir - come join us on Sunday as we lead our OMPC family in worship.  We'll meet at 9:45AM on the stage to have a brief run-through.  After a short break, we'll lead the 10:45 service.  Once the song set is over, you can have a seat with your families for the remainder of the service, as Bob takes us through Paul’s letter to Philemon.  Or for those of you that joined us for the sermon at 8:15, you can slip out the backstage door.   Bring you boys as well!  All the songs that we sing will be VERY familiar to you and Oak Mountain, and a “great singing voice" is absolutely not necessary.  We have over 100 guys on the stage at once, and the sound is just amazing!

So come sing, or croak with us! It's gonna be a blast.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday - July 19, 2015

Summers is drawing rapidly to a close.  In just 6 days we have our bullfrog choir, our youth ministry returns from their summer mission trips, band camps at local schools get fired up, and before we know it - school is back in session.  It's been a quick summer!

Yesterday's worship set was all about the One who at His name, every knee shall bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.  David Conrad preached yesterday - you need to go listen if you were unable to catch it live...

We opened with our new tune - Soul on Fire.

After our call to worship we sang I Am, Crown Him With Many Crowns, Holy, and Agnus Dei.

Our offering song was No Other Name, and we even did a closing song Revelation Song to wrap up David's sermon from Revelation 4 and 5.

Join us next week for our 12th Annual Bullfrog Choir!

Fellas - join us in just two weeks for our 12th Annual Bullfrog Choir!  Brief run-through at 9:45 and then we lead in worship at the 10:45 service.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday - July 5, 2015

We had a one-service Sunday this past weekend, as many of our folks were out traveling for the holiday.  Still a great crowd for worship, and for a terrific message from one of our Associate Pastors - Ken Jones.

We opened yesterday with I Am from Crowder.

After our call to worship we sang Arise, All Hail the Power, Your Name and O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

Our offering song was God of Justice.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday - June 28, 2015

We had quite the different feel and configuration for our worship service yesterday.  We dove right in with a prayer and praise litany, as Bob led our church through a prayer time, re-reflecting on his sermon points from last Sunday.  Always good to change it up - and so thankful for my great teams of musicians for their flexibility and talent!

So, having said that - we broke dramatically from our normal liturgy of worship... but the songs we did included Jesus Only Jesus, Lord I Need You, Search Me, Lay it Down, And Can It Be (set to Clocks by Coldplay), 10000 Reasons, and Rise Up O Church of God.

Here's a PDF of our litany of confession and readings from yesterday.
