    It might be fun to see what everyone plays, which versions in particular, what praise songs are popular, offertory songs, thoughts on keys and stuff, etc.

    I'll start, we play a mix of originals and louder Christian praise stuff:

    2x originals
    Salvation is Here - Hillsong United
    In Wonder - Newsboys
    Everlasting God - Lincoln Brewster
    Slow Fade - Casting Crowns (offertory)

    I love the solo in Salvation is Here, and its usually our leadoff song cause its pretty high energy. I double the guitar on the intro to In Wonder using a little tapping thing. We also play Slow Fade for a men's retreat kickoff thing we're doing, but not really a praise song. Its a great message for men to hear, and we have a great singer who nails the part. Everything we play is in the key as recorded, just to make rehearsals easier.

    We have 9:30 AM & 11:00 AM services. The 9:30 can be a little "dead" at times. This Sunday we closed the 9:30 with the Delirious version of My Glorious. We completely rocked the house. When we finished the congregation just stood there unphased (like they were standing at a bus stop or something)! Talk about awkward!

    hokey smokes! that happened to me a couple of sundays ago! we played this new tune called Let God Arise (can't remember who it's by), but it's a smoking number. First service, everyone just stared in disbelief. it was baaaaaad. we, the musicians, were on, but nobody in the congregation got it. we hoped that second service would be different. we were wrong. just blank stares again. ouch. thankfully the night service got it.

    We played

    Come Now Is the Time for Worship
    Open the Eyes of My Heart Lord
    All in All
    I Believe In Jesus
    Lord I Lift Your Name

    This was all completely acoustic since we had no power, thank you Hurricane Ike. I actually played the bongos/various percussion/singing. It was a very interesting experience to say the least, but it was a very powerful, amazing worship.
     
  14. Come, Now is the time to worship
    Ain't no rock
    Trading my sorrows
    Above all
    Healing waters

  18. Beautiful day- U2(yes, although we/I butchered it).
    Never let go
    How great is our God
    Beautiful one
    I haven't done a regular church gig in a couple of years)long story), but this may become a steady thing- which would be great as I've missed it.

    Heart of Worship - which our church really needed to hear
    God's Choir - Choir director worked it up nice - Very slow and reverent first verse, then kicked in with a walking bass line and finished the song uptempo.

    -Forever
    -Deep Deep, Down Down (strong bass lines)
    -Here I Am To Worship
    -No One Like You
    -Oh, Magnify the Lord (kids really like this one. They have a bunch of motions to do and we play each verse faster and faster, so they really get a workout.)
