in Liturgy & Sermons

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. You can also watch the video stream of the whole service from our Facebook page, or here below (you’ll also see a higher resolution video of the sermon alone).

Our liturgy is written by Worship Director Justin Shaffer, in collaboration with our Creative Team at Sojourn Church New Albany and worship staff at the other four Sojourn Collective churches in the Louisville area.

This Sunday, Pastor Jonah Sage preached from Matthew 11:20-24 in our series Receive: Finding Freedom Through Healing. To learn more about Sojourn Church, click here.

The Coming One (Justin)


…God speaks, we listen and respond…

God has set his throne in heaven; he rules over us all. He’s the King! So bless God, you angels, ready and able to fly at his bidding, quick to hear and do what he says. Bless God, all you armies of angels, alert to respond to whatever he wills. Bless God, all creatures, wherever you are— everything and everyone made by God. And you, O my soul, bless God!

-Psalm 103:19-22 The Message

Great Are You Lord (Trade off)


Hear the word of the Lord:

A wise son heeds his father’s instruction,

but a mocker does not respond to rebukes.                                                  -Proverbs 13:1 NIV

Take a moment to prayerfully consider what trusted brothers and sisters in Christ, spiritual mothers and fathers, God’s word have been saying to us…

Come to Me       (Janna Leads)


Hear the words of our Lord:

11 Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.

12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

15 “If you love me, obey my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth.

-John 14:11-17a NLT

…as the giving baskets are passed around, let’s pray aloud together:

God, in the presence of each other

We bring you this offering, as we respond in praise

To the abundance we have received from you 

Salvation’s Tide (JQ Leads)  


JQ prayerfully consider a word of peace the flock needs to hear this Sunday 🙂



There is a Peace (Meg Leads)  


10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) (JQ leads)


So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. [by the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Peace be with you!]                                                                                                                      -Romans 12:1-2a The Message
