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 12:24-29 in our series Respond: Following the Lord of Life. To learn more about Sojourn Church, click here.

Stronghold    (Rebecca)


Welcome! Brief explanation of why we do what we do, intro to Psalm 139… song doubles as CTW and song of adoration… it’s on the long side and people will be singing by the end 🙂

Psalm 139 – You Hem Me In     (Rebecca)


…prompt to give space to lament and grieve

Death Has Lost its Sting     (Meg)         


Hear the word of the Lord:

18 For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. 20 God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake.

21 Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory.  -1 Peter 1:19-21 NLT


Power in the Blood    – Trade off 


Dear sons and daughters of the living God, please see the power of God is effective to negotiate a permanent and lasting peace with God and one another. Let’s greet each other over the next few moments 🙂



Total Praise – All Voices  


Psalm 34 – Taste and See (Justin and Ryan)


May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. [Go in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit]

   -Rom. 15:13
