Weekend Setlist – September 3&4, 2011

September 6, 2011

Compass Bible Church is a happening place. We keep a pretty full ministry schedule all throughout the year. The closest thing we get to a lull around here is mid-to-late August. And yes, if you just looked at your calendar you realized those days are over.

Last week I was busy preparing for the fall kick-off of ministries at CBC. It felt like the days were flying by. Even on days when I had time it still seemed like there were too many things I needed/wanted to do. In short, the constraints of time felt like a pretty hefty ball-and-chain last week.

All this busyness made me thankful that I serve a God that is not finite like me. I am limited by a lifespan, but God is eternal. The more and more I thought about this, the more I realized that these were crucial truths for us to be singing as a church. Therefore, this was our weekend set (the letter in parentheses at the end of each song is the key in which we sang the song):

Everlasting God” by Brenton Brown/Ken Riley (A)
Blessed Be Your Name” by Matt and Beth Redman (A)
10,000 Reasons” by Matt Redman/Jonas Myrin (E)
Rock of Ages” by Augustus M. Toplady/Thomas Hastings (somewhat like the Chris Rice arrangement) (G)
Your Love Oh Lord” by Brad Avery/David Carr/Mac Powell/Mark Lee/Tai Anderson (G)

Our closing song was more tied to the sermon than the rest of the set. We did a simple version of “Blessed Assurance” by Fanny Crosby.

I started the service with Psalm 90:1-2, and I’ll end this blog with them as well:

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
