Wow, first setlist post since moving to Fresno in July, 2012! We are thoroughly enjoying our new family here at Bread of Life Church.
We had a great Sunday morning gathering at BOL today. Tom preached on the significance of scripture in the life of the believer.
I led worship from the acoustic, with Tom on bass, Jason on keys and vocals, Branden on electric, Drew on drums, and Evan on cymbals (I know, boy band day!). We went ‘paperless’ today, all iPads with OnSong, which was pretty cool!

1. For All You’ve Done – in E (Reuben Morgan, CCLI #4254689)
We started off with this upbeat tune after Sean opened the meeting, then went right from the chorus into the verse of the next song…
2. Deep Cries Out – in E (William Matthew and Christian Koepke, CCLI #5858156)
We just did the verse, pre-chorus, and first chorus from this song, so as not to get too busy, especially because a) we were doing it as part of a medley with For All You’ve Done, and b) we were introducing it today. Didn’t want to get any more complicated than necessary. These songs worked really good together. Actually went back into the pre-chorus of For All You’ve Done (“you came near..”) to end the medley.
3. All Heaven Declares – in G, mod. to A (Noel and Tricia Richards, CCLI #120556)
Haven’t done this one in a while, and found out that it was new to BOL – oops, I wound up doing an all-new-song set for these guys this morning. Didn’t mean to do that, but I think the songs were easy enough and I knew that at least the former Kirksvillians (MO) among us new them. This is a beautiful, simple worship song, and really brought us to a worshipful place. We went into a time of free worship here, then straight to the chorus of…
4. Worshiping You – in A (Jonathan Stockstill, CCLI #5097319)
I have loved this song since it came out four or five years ago. I think my favorite part is the pre-chorus, “I live to worship You” – I always get choked up there, and like to repeat it ad infinitem. That is a profound thought, and I pray, the truth about my life. We finished in worship here, and transitioned to Tom’s word.
Tom talked to us about the importance and significance of the scriptures in the life of the believer today. The main text was II Timothy chapter 3, which of course ends with the well known verses 16-17, “all scripture is inspired by God…”
The foundation of scripture gives the people of God one standard that defines the culture of the Kingdom of God that can be known and obeyed. Anything done for God apart from the truth of the Word of God is destined for disaster. Prayer groups based on experiences rather than scripture, ministries based on gifting rather than Bible, etc.
