2.19.12 Worship Confessional

Have you ever had a Sunday where you simply tried to jam too many things into one gathering? This week the flow looked pretty good on paper (or at least it looked good in my head) but when reality hit it was clear that we have planned too many elements for our typical 75 minute gathering.

Fortunately, God’s grace was evident on many fronts. We had a laid back, go with the flow guest speaker, Sam Van Eman from the Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO). Sam was in Pittsburgh for the Jubilee Conference and the past couple of years we have been privileged to have one of the Jubilee speakers teach at our worship gathering. Sam lead us through a creative reading and reflection on the Good Samaritan narrative and his message included everyone engaging with crayons, colored pencils and paper. Win!

Here is our complete worship flow:

  • Our God Is Mercy (Brenton Brown)
  • Fall on Your Knees (David Crowder Band)
  • Reading and Reflection on Psalm 103
  • 10,000 Reasons (Matt Redman)
  • Interview with Member of Spiritual Formation Team (focus on Scripture)
  • Interview with High School Student (focus on her serving opportunity in Israel next month)
  • Announcements and Offering
  • Message from Sam Van Eman
  • Benediction
