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 can also see a video of our sermon alone, from Vimeo).

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

This Sunday Pastor Jonah Sage preached from Titus 1:1-4 to begin our new series This Beautiful Church. To learn more about Sojourn Church, click here.

CALL TO WORSHIP:   Liturgist

1-5 A song to our strong God!

    a shout to the God of Jacob!

Anthems from the choir, music from the band,

    sweet sounds from lute and harp,

Trumpets and trombones and horns:

    it’s festival day, a feast to God!

-Psalm 81:1-3 The Message


—Song 1: “Build My Life” Key, Rick


13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate, though he had decided to let him go. 14 You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you. 15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. 16 By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.

-Acts 3:13-16 NIV

—Song 2: “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” Key, Justin


3 What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are. But that’s also why the world doesn’t recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he’s up to.

2-3 But friends, that’s exactly who we are: children of God. And that’s only the beginning. Who knows how we’ll end up! What we know is that when Christ is openly revealed, we’ll see him—and in seeing him, become like him. All of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesus’ life as a model for our own.

-1 John 3:1-3 The Message

—Song 3: “I Saw the Light” Key, Meg


Let’s welcome each other as ones who are truly at peace
