Earlier this week, I posted ways pastors could incorporate Psalm singing in their worship services. Those ways implemented in our church over the course of a few years, led to our unique service we had this past Sunday. I am preaching through 2 Samuel and arrived at chapter 22, which is a Psalm of David and the same as Psalm 18. One of our pastor with tremendous music gifts, took it upon himself to put Psalm 18 to familiar tunes (Hymns) for us to sing before hearing 2 Samuel 22 preached. Here is the order of service:
Call to Worship Colossians 3:15-17
Hymn Insert Psalm 18:1-6
Hymn Insert Psalm 18:7-16
Scripture Reading Psalm 18:16-26
Prayer of Confession
Hymn Insert Psalm 18:27-35
Hymn Insert Psalm 18:36-45
Sermon 2 Samuel 22
Closing Hymn Insert Psalm 18:46-50
Here is the sheet music for the Psalms we did.
Here is our congregation singing the final hymn.
