Series Run Down Volume 5

Date: February 15, 2009
Teaching Series: Xposed
Key Passages: Ephesians 5:3, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
Service Length: 60 minutes
Attendance: up 22% over the same time last year, up 3% over previous service

Worship Set: Holy is the Lord, Heart of Worship, Enough

Message Summary: We reviewed typical relationship “bases” and allowed Scripture to define boundaries in our lives. The sermon ended with a take on God’s view of bases.

Student Involvement: Students made up the worship band, ran lights, sound, and media. Students also served at our guest check-in, and all over the church.
Fun Stuff/Special Elements: Our theme was “baseball” since we were talking about bases. After a quick call to a local school baseball coach, we scored two jerseys. We morphed our sub-stage into a baseball diamond and walked around the bases as we talked. We had a vintage popcorn machine (with popcorn) as you entered the student center and used recorded baseball park music. For the opening of the high school service, we had four volunteers come up on stage and we had a “sing off” to “Take me out to the ballgame.” It was a blast!

Service Run Down Volume 2

Date: January 11, 2009
Teaching Series: LIVE | SERVE | GROW
Key Passages: Acts 2:42-47 (specifically vs 44 & 45), Ephesians 2:8-10, 1 Timothy 4:12, 2 Corinthians 9:6
Service Length: 67 minutes
Attendance: up 25% over the same time last year, up 14% over previous service

Worship Set: Sing, Sing, Sing, We Shine, Heart of Worship, Enough
Communion Song: East to West
Offering Song: Point of Difference

Message Summary: The early church understood that transformation doesn’t just happen in the mind. Holy transformation in an entire body/life/soul experience. The church not only sold their possessions, but gave of their lives. It’s so easy to write a check and mark service off of your to do list. When we give of our lives, we not only serve others but experience transformation from the inside out.

Student Involvement: Students made up the band, ran audio, propresenter, guest check-in, and student check-in.
Fun Stuff/Special Elements: We began our message by utilizing our table groups to write thank you notes to their favorite teacher. The idea was to say thank you to someone already serving them. Those who read from their Bibles out loud received a free Babe Ruth candy bar. We also launched our “hour of service” sign-ups.

Apple’s Keynote Remote

picture-1I’m excited to try out Apple’s Keynote Remote tomorrow morning during our student worship services. Since starting our second hour, I’ve been looking for a way to relieve the pro presenter person so they can attend a small group. Hopefully this is the ticket! I’ll type up a review tomorrow for anyone interested. The trick will be if I can run my sermon from my iPhone without looking at it….
