Monday Morning Recap for Sunday - September 14, 2014

God's love never fails.  I love the way the writer of "One Thing Remains" strayed from the syncopation and rhythmic nature of the verse - to land with solid quarter notes at the end with "this one… thing…."

It serves as a reminder for me that regardless of what's going on, God's love for us through Christ is THE one thing that will never fail, never give up on me….

We opened yesterday with a new setting that I wrote to The Church's One Foundation.

After our call to worship we sang You Lifted Me Out, One Thing Remains, Rejoice the Lord is King, and Jesus Only Jesus.

Our offering song was Everything by Tim Hughes.  Great tune.

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday - September 7, 2014

Great to be back at OMPC yesterday!  We're kicking off our Christmas season with our Wednesday night choir rehearsal this Wednesday from 6-7 downstairs in the choir room.  Come join us!

We opened yesterday with Relentless.  That's one of those songs that critics like to call "7-11" songs (repeat the same 7 words, 11 times).  I love, though, that the chorus is simply "Your love is relentless, your love is relentless, your love is relentless, your love is relentless…."  I need to be reminded that God's love, pursuit, and heart for me is relentless, no matter how I try to hide, or how fast I try to run.  And if singing those same words in repetition helps me remember, and helps my congregation remember - then let's do it!

After our call to worship we sang Joyful, Stronger, We Will Run, and How He Loves.

Our offering song was Jesus I Come.

Seriously - join us Wednesday night for our Christmas kickoff….

Monday Morning Recap for Sunday - August 17, 2014

Good Monday morning!  Half-way through August, almost to fall… almost to football, but the weather report says it's gonna be over 100 here on Saturday.  Neat!

We opened yesterday with Glory to God.
