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.

Oh Great Is Our God! (Kara)


Spoken: Good morning!

*introduce yourself* …it’s All Together Sunday!!

 Here at Sojourn, we begin each service with a Call to Worship- setting our minds on the attributes and deeds of our Heavenly Father. I invite you to read the underlined portions together with me:

Shout for joy to God, all the earth!

Sing the glory of his name;

make his praise glorious.

Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!

So great is your power

that your enemies cringe before you.

All the earth bows down to you;

they sing praise to you,

they sing the praises of your name.

  • Psalm 66:1-4 (NIV)

Amen! There is truly no enemy too great for the Lord to conquer. There is no trial that God cannot walk us through. There is no mistake we can make that our Father, in his love, cannot forgive. He has shown us mercy and deliverance in his Son Jesus. As we begin our gathering, let’s ask God to open our eyes to see himself in his Word, and to see how we might become more like him. Let’s worship! 🙂 

Here I Am to Worship (Ryan)


Spoken: Already in our service today, we have gazed upon the glory of God, acknowledging his greatness and love for us. But in our gathering, we must remember to pray for each other in our struggle against our enemies- both spiritual and physical- who would tell us the lie that God will not deliver us from our sin, or sustain us when we are troubled. Let’s read this prayer of confession together:

Lord, people are saying,

“God will not deliver them.”

Lord, in our doubt and despair: You are a shield around us

Father, when we are dissatisfied, sad, and scared: You lift up our heads

When we cry out to you to help us through another day: You answer us from Your holy mountain

  • Adapted from Psalm 3

Spoken: Let’s continue to raise up our prayers to God in song.

We Are Listening (Kara)     


Spoken: Let’s hear this word of assurance from Ephesians 1:

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

  • Ephesians 1

In Christ, God is not withholding any good thing from his chosen ones, because we have become one with Christ. This means that rather than being sad forever, our trials are temporary battles that have already been won. Christ gives us hope in times of darkness, and grace in our weakness. Let’s celebrate this together! 🙂 Just as God doesn’t withhold any good thing from us, let us rejoice in faith and trust as we prepare our tithes and offerings and the giving baskets are passed around and praise God who has made us alive in Christ!!

Made Alive (Ryan)  

PEACE (Ryan)

Christ brought with him the ministry of reconciliation. Our peace with God makes peace with one another possible. Let’s greet each other with that peace.


You Know My Name (Ryan/Kara)

Jesus Loves Me            


Spoken: Here at Sojourn, we begin each service with a call to worship, and end with a benediction, which is a blessing for the road. If you’d like to participate, you can extend a hand with me.


 We know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus, not letting sin rule over you, but rather offering yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life. Peace be with you
