Welcome to Sojourn’s weekly worship music set list review & service recap. You’ll not only read a list of the songs we led, but also the readings and prayers from our liturgy. And if you’d like to see how we incorporate liturgical art and lead the responsive readings, watch the embedded video of our entire service, or check it out on the Sojourn New Albany Facebook page. Our liturgy is written by worship director Justin Shaffer in collaboration with worship directors at other Sojourn churches. This Sunday Pastor Jonah Sage preached from 1 Samuel 17 (David and Goliath) in our Life Of David series. Learn more about Sojourn Community Church here.

Good morning! I’m Justin… Pardon our mess… (building renovations …)

We gather here this Sunday because the same God who has defeated our enemies- satan, sin, and death, invites us into life giving relationship with Him. Just as God invites we respond with worship and praise. Join me in reading our Call to Worship by reading the underlined portions.   

Open up, ancient gates!

Open up, ancient doors,

and let the King of glory enter.

Who is the King of glory?

The Lord, strong and mighty;

the Lord, invincible in battle.

Open up, ancient gates!

Open up, ancient doors,

and let the King of glory enter.

-Psalm 24:7-9

The good news is that the King of Glory has come, so join us and sing, praise, and rejoice in our King this morning!

Bless the Lord (Son Of Man) written by Tye Tribbett.


There is a simple prayer in the book of Mark that says, I do believe, Lord, but help my unbelief! As we sing this next song let’s ask the Lord for more faith.

In The Hours written by Helen L. Parmelee and Kevin Twit.


The apostle Paul reminds us of this truth, hear the word of the Lord.

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or are hungry or cold or in danger or threatened with death?

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away.

Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35, 37-39 NLT)

Remember that God is the one who fights for you. He is the one who rescues you from your sin and shame. The Lord your God is the one who delivers you from death. Trust in him and his salvation.

Trust also his provision, and as the giving baskets are passed around, let us enjoy the benefits of God’s love and provision, giving thanks to God; the giver of all good things 🙂

I Have to Believe written by Rita Springer.


Sisters and Brothers, the love of God has given us peace with one another. Let us enjoy the community that God has given us and greet one another with the peace of Christ



Made a Way written by Travis Greene.

Power in the Blood written by Lewis E. Jones.



Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. Go now in the name of the father, son and holy spirit. Peace be you..

1 Cor. 15:58
