Sunday Setlist: Easter, April 24, 2011

Easter Sunday was spectacular at Journey! We had a packed house (or theater, if you want to be technical) and the energy and atmosphere was off the charts!

Our Easter Worship:

  • Christ the Lord is Risen Today – this was kind of a mash-up of two different versions found on From version 1, we used the guitar lead line, and we used version 2 for the rest of the song, although we left out some of the vocal ad-libs.
  • My Savior Lives by New Life Worship – This was a new one for us and it went over HUGE! The song was a hit and people were singing along right away. This one is definitely a keeper!
  • Happy Day, Steve Fee’s Version, while there’s not much difference musically between the original version of the song and Steve Fee’s version, there’s a lot more energy in his recording and we used every ounce we could muster!
  • Our God by Chris Tomlin – This song has become a powerful anthem at Journey and one that seemed very appropriate for Easter.
  • The Message, including a Baptism – a great thing to celebrate on Easter!
  • All Because of Jesus by Steve Fee – A great followup to the message and a reminder of why we’re here.
  • Prayers and Offering
  • Let Creation Sing by Hillsong United – a great closer to a great worship service.
