Sunday Highlights

It was a really moving day at Cross Point Nashville today.  I have been looking forward to today’s messaging “Syncing Through Worship” since we started this series.

Today we did a combination of extra music, teaching all on video, and communion as part our worship experience.

Here’s what the script looked like:

Worship Songs:

“Blessed be Your Name”


“Awesome is Our God” (an original written by Jarrod)

Welcome by Pete

Video 1 featuring Pete talking about the discipline of worship

Worship Songs:

“From the Inside Out” (my favorite worship song!)

“Our God Reigns”

Video 2 featuring Pete – continued teaching on the worship

Communion led by Pastor Tom

Special Music “How He Loves” performed by Marcia Ramirez

Closing announcements

Here are a few things that Pete said that stuck with me:

  • From John 15 “apart from me, you can do nothing”
  • When we think worship, we think music/songs, but worship can be so much more than that
  • You have to make a choice to build your life around this method of worship
  • Worship is allowing your mind to be brought into the presence of the reality of God
  • The cross is the best model of worship we have.  It’s the most incredible act of worship
  • Jesus last words were a prayer of worship
  • For every act of worship, there is always an act of surrender/sacrifice

What will you do to purposefully worship this week?

    How awesome that God has led your pastor to teach on such an important subject. Our worship team gathered for prayer and fellowship last week and I taught on freedom in worship. I love how God gives us scripture to show us how to reach his heart.

    This week it is my intention to spend time with God in a more personal way by getting up early in the morning, and praying before I do anything else. I have to admit although I do daily devotions, I sometimes “fit” them into my day instead of making God the priority.

    Sounds like you guys had an awesome service today

    A well known worship leader told me that worship is a lifestyle. It never hit home before. This week I will purposely strive to remember that statement.
