What a great morning of worship! We had the wonderful addition of a tenor sax player to our band this morning. He’s recently began attending our church, and he is fantastic!! I was amazed at how much it added to have him play with the band. He knew just when to play to help fill in the holes, and it added such a rich texture. He also played a wonderful jazz/gospel version of “Blessed Assurance” for the offertory. So excited to have him be part of our team!!
When I chose the songs this week, I intentionally chose songs with the sax in mind. They were all songs we normally do, but just ones that I thought would work well with that additional instrument.
So, we did:
“You Are Good” (Israel Houghton)
“Better Than Life” (Israel Houghton)
“Jesus Messiah” (Chris Tomlin)
“We Fall Down” (Chris Tomlin) – (with that amazing sax solo in the middle, which he did a great job on!)
Sax solo during offering
“Shine” (Matt Redman)
