We had a very powerful service this past weekend. Our pastor, John Jackson fearlessly spoke on "putting your past behind you" in the continuation of our Essentials series at Carson Valley Christian Center. He gave people the opportunity to come forward for prayer at the end of the service, as we sang "Finally Free" by Nichole Nordemann. At the end of every service I could see God's spirit working as people were crying, some sobbing, and many receiving prayer. After our first service on Saturday evening, I could sense a spirit of distraction in the room...i knew that we were in the midst of a strong spiritual battle, because we were pressing forward to take territory for Jesus Christ, as we prayed for people's chains to fall away. The good news is that whenever we sense the enemy trying to attack...we know that we must be RIGHT ON TRACK, and to press into Christ to win the battle!
Trading My Sorrows.Paul Baloche and Lincoln Brewster version. We have had this song "on the bench" for quite awhile, and our congregation still loves this song...really fun, glad we brought it back on the field this weekend.
Greeting: Call to set aside our sorrows, sickness, pain, etc and trade them for Christ's joy as we worship.
I Am Free:Jon Egan
Jesus, Lover of my Soul: Hillsong United version
Finally Free:Nichole Nordemann. Pastor used as a call to prayer time.
