It never fails that we change up the setlist a little every week. Usually because of the pastor's message, or because God puts a song on someone's heart. I've even completely tossed a setlist out and arranged something else because I felt lead. In many cases, the setlist is more of an outline until the week of, but I like to stay ahead of myself. lol
I like the idea of opening with a cover song! Great list.
Sunday, January 24 was the VERY FIRST CONTEMPORARY SERVICE at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Venice, FL!! What had been a whisper in the hearts of many for years became a reality! God truly blessed...we were expecting about 65-75, and He blessed us with 178!! The congregation is very traditional and, like most of Florida, primarily the older retired generation. But with the leadership of our Pastor, they have reached out to begin a TLC Contemporary Worship. Many of our Praise Team don't have a contemporary music background, and we will be "blending" for a while as we bring people slowly into contemporary music. Pray for our new ministry!
Here's the setlist for our first Sunday:

1st Set (before worship): Cry of My Heart
Show Me Your Ways
My Redeemer Lives
Opening Set: Friend of God
God Is Good All the Time
How Great is Our God/How Great Thou Art
Offering: Glory to God Forever
Before Sermon: You Are Awesome in THis Place
Closing: Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)
Out The Door (OTD): Friend of God
_ _ _ _ _ _ _

Jan. 31: Glory to God Forever
Step By Step
I Have Decided to Follow Jesus (really rocked with a calypso beat!!)
Offering: Just A Closer Walk With Thee (jazz combo set)
Before Sermon: Sanctuary
Closing: Show Me Your Ways
OTD: Rise Up and Praise Him
_ _ _ _ _ _ _

Feb. 7 Blessed Be Your Name
Glory To God Forever (last week for this--we've been teaching it to the congregation)
Blessed Assurance (rockin' with a jazz style!)

Offering: Praise Handbells: Jesus Medley: Jesus Name Above All Names and Open My Eyes, Lord
Before Sermon: (we'll sing with the handbells): Jesus Name Above All Names and Open My Eyes, Lord
Closing: Forever
OTD: Blessed Be Your Name (reprise)
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

And any suggestions/comments for beginning our new service would be most appreciated!

Hi Sharon! I think this is so great!!! I sincerely pray for your congregation to worship freely with you this coming month. To "sing a new song" is absolutely biblical! You should check-out an artist named Robin Mark. He has written and has covered many, many great, spirit-filled songs that fit in great regardless of whom the congregation consists. Check-out: Revival in Belfast, Revival II, Come Heal This Land, East of the River, Year of Grace, The Mandate I & 2, The Mandate (Experiencing God) and The Mandate (Living the Adventure). I promise you... you will not be disappointed. God Bless, -Ben
Congratulations on what looks like a great start Sharon. I have found that Gateway Worship out of Dallas has several songs that might work well for a fairly traditional congregation. We use their arrangements of Come Thou Fount, Come Thou King and New Doxology quite often and Revelation Song is probably our congregation's favorite song. Victory Music out of Oklahoma City has a song that is a take off of Holy, Holy, Holy called "Universe Bows" that works well with a fairly traditional congregation. We are getting ready to introduce Casting Crowns arrangement of "Glorious Day" on Easter. It would be a great song for a congregation in transition.

I will pray for you, your team and your congregation as you make this transition that God will bless you and that you will encounter Him in a mighty way during your worship.
