Worship Recap…

Strong day at HGBC yesterday. Pastor preached a powerful word out of Ephesians 2:8-9.

We learned these truths:

God makes the purchase

God sets the agenda

God takes the initiative

God does the work of salvation


We also celebrated with several who have finished our Discover HG class and were baptized. It is a great testimony to the work of the Lord and their obedience.

I love being a part of these services.


Here’s the set list from yesterday:

God of our salvation-Whickam


Rock of ages-Crowder

All I have is Christ-Sovereign Grace Music

Man of sorrows-Hillsong


After a full morning of great services, we ended the day with a Night of Prayer at our Main campus. We dedicated the evening to worshipping the Lord through song and prayer. There were prayers for the world, our country, our leaders, our Pastor and his family, our pastoral staff and various leaders at the church, and our congregation. It was great to see them gather in small groups and voice their prayers out loud. I am thankful for what God is doing at Hickory Grove!








I’m the kind of guy that only likes certain kinds of music at certain times of the year. For instance, Christmas music should only be played in December. That makes everything right with the world. Also, I do not like listening to secular Christmas music. Call me a grinch, I’ve heard it all my life. I don’t get into songs about mistletoe or trees or anything like that. Resisting the urge to Jesus Juke here, I like songs about Christ’s birth only at Christmas time.

Well, I broke my own rule yesterday. Hillsong has a new Christmas album out and I really like it.  I was listening to it on Spotify yesterday. By the way, if you don’t Spotify, go here now… It is called, “We have a Savior”. It’s very rootsy and different from the plethora of Hillsong albums. Check it out and tell me what you think. Now that I have listened to it, I’ll delete it from my playlist until December…gotta keep it real…

Great day today!
I was able to be gone for a week for a family vacation. We had a fun time at the beach. I must admit though, I missed being at church. I was watching the live stream of our services. I literally can’t get away. So being back today was just wonderful.
Pastor, as usual, did a great job preaching from Jeremiah.
Our people responded to God’s Word during our time of singing. It was awesome just to step back and listen to their voices.

Here’s the set list from today:
God is able-Hillsong
Glorious One-Fee
Mighty to save-Hillsong
All my hope-Hillsong
The Lord Reigns- Still not sure who does this song. I need to find out…

Worship Recap…

Another great day in the house on Sunday. We had a lot of people that decided to brave DST and make it to church. Hopefully the Lord will give that hour back to you sometime.

Pastor preached out of Numbers 14 and it was fantastic. Learning what and who to focus on always gets you through that trial. Israel’s poor behavior and lack of faith sheds light on our circumstances today. So glad the Bible is relevant to our lives today!


Here’s the set list from Sunday:

Here for You-Matt Redman

Our God-Tomlin

Beautiful the blood-Steve Fee

Sun and Shield-Gateway Worship

My Savior lives-New Life Worship
