Weekend Rundown: Be Reliable (Man Up – Wk 2)

What a great weekend we had at The Crossing! Our main text for this weekend was 2 Timothy 2. Shane Philip, our senior pastor, talked about the importance of living a life that can be an example for others.

There were a couple creative elements that we used that were very strong. We found a very good video on YouTube that featured Bryan Clay who is the Olympic Gold & Silver Medalist in the Decathlon. This video on YouTube is in 5 different parts. We played 3 of the 5 parts in the service and it made for a great tie into the message. We enjoy being able to use a story at the beginning of the service and followup the story at the end of the message. This video allowed us to end cap the “Message Elements” section of the service to link everything together. The service flow below shows how we did that this weekend.

We did a feature song originally performed by Rascal Flatts called “Stand.”  This was a great song that was an awesome addition to the service.

Featured Song: The Words I Would Say

As apart of our Man Up series we did the song, “The Words I Would Say” by Sidewalk Prophets. We felt like the song was the same throughout the entire time, so we scaled it back for a more acoustic sound at the beginning and then built it into full band.

To make the staging feel different we put our everyone but the Keyboardist on stools and had all of our guitarist come to the front line and put the vocalists in the back. It was a nice way to mix things up.

Weekend Rundown: Be Bold (Man Up – Wk 1)

For the first week of our Man Up series we took on the topic of being bold. With the text being focused in 2 Timothy 1:1-7

A great element that we really liked was integrating the Manly Meme idea that uses the same picture that we are using in our graphic (we are actually borrowing this graphic and bumper from Christ’s Church of the Valley in the Phoenix area). Lee actually used a few of these in his message (Message Link below).
