Worship Tip: What do people leave church talking about? #sundaysetlist #sundaysetlists #worship

The worship tip for this week is to design a worship environment where people leave talking about their relationship with God instead of the creative elements.

I’ve had several people come to me this weekend and comment on the music. They mentioned everything from Sam Cho (cello) and his father, David (Lu Chien) Cho from Taiwan (piano), who drew our eyes to the Creator of music through their incredible arrangements.  They said Donna Shelite did a bang up job of singing a song that Jim requested called “Midnight Cry.”  They commented on the orchestra added icing to the cake when it led instrumentally in worship.  I even mentioned to someone, “Too bad it wasn’t Easter, cause this is going to be difficult to top.”

It got me thinking again about what people talk about when they leave church on the weekend. What do people leave Topeka Bible Church talking about?  Do they talk about the music?  The crystal clear sound?  The pastor?  The creative video?  The person with a set of singing pipes?

If people leave talking about God and their relationship with Him — then the music, sermon, videos, and other creative moments did what they are supposed to do.
