Sunday Service Resources

Hey guys, thanks for using your talents to worship God and encourage the church this Sunday! Here are links to recordings so you can practice, and the schedule is farther down at the bottom.

SINGERS and all VIDEO TECH be there at the building (401 S. Prospect) by 8:30AM on Sunday morning! We’ll pray together and rehearse all the songs with the sound equipment so we can get everything mixed well.

Here is the song sheet the rest of the church will be using – you can have it on your phone but do your best to memorize the song you’re leading:

    hey bro! i’m the music director of the Northern VA church. quick question. He Reigns. in E do you find that stylistically it’s too high for the sopranos? i was thinking of doing it in D for that reason. what do you think?

      Hey bro, thanks for your message. The Newsboys “He Reigns” (the one that goes “all God’s children singing…) we do in the key of E, so the chords are D / A / E / E. It seems OK there for us – the highest note the melody hits is a D there. The other song called “He Reigns” we do is the Kirk Franklin one (that uses “Awesome God” for the chorus) – that one we do in Dmin (in case that’s the one you meant).

      • Andre McRae says:

        sweet! yeah i meant the Newsboys version. thanks for all you do man. ur awesome. Keep Going.

    Hi Brian,
    I’m the Worship Coordinator for the OKC Church and was wondering if there is a teaching recording for Men Who Dream? It’s been awhile since we’ve sang it and I’ve got some new folks on my team. Btw…thank you for all of the tools/resources you put our there. I REALLY appreciate it! You have helped me more than you’ll ever know.

    YSIC,

    Tracy Rodney

      Thanks for asking, Tracy. I don’t have one for that, but I will put it on my list to make one for that song. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Hi Brian, I am the Evangelist for the Church in Halifax Nova Scotia. Love you music. We have a limited group in regards to playing instruments, I was wondering if any of your songs have minus 1 (instrumenals) we can play when singing these songs.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    • jbriancraig says:

      I do have some instrumental mixes from some of the albums I’ve produced. I will see if I can get those posted and get back to you. Thanks for your encouragement.

      Hey bro great meeting you and phenomenal job with the musical – it was so inspiring! As I texted Steve, I laughed, I cried, and I recommitted myself to Jesus. So great to see you using your talent for the Lord!

  5. Caronique says:

    Hey,

    I notice that people can become really laxed with the service and the predictability of Sunday worship.
    Our only way to combat this is sometimes having a “sermunion” (having the message then communion at the end after the message”

    What other ways do you suggest we can help our congregation to fall in love with God through worship and realize its importance again?

  6. Gregory Schrom says:

    Hey Brian!

    Thank you so much for all you do and being a great example for us. 1 cor 11:1

    What’s up bro, my name is Greg Schrom from the Greater Philadelphia Church of Christ.

    We recently just split regions and I am now the head worship leader. I am the only brother for now, a few sisters and we have a drummer for band.

    Do you know of a good resource that has a library of backing tracks? Also any other opinions of what would be best for us?

    Thank you so much!!

      Hey bro, thanks for your encouraging message! I have just a few background tracks here you can feel free to use, I’m hoping to add a bunch more: http://jbriancraig.blog/backing-tracks/. You could also use loopcommunity.com – they have a free app called Prime that will play multitrack backing tracks. (Each track is around $15). You need some kind of in ear monitoring so you can play along if you have live musicians as well. I have uploaded a bunch of my own tracks on there and we use it all the time to add to our instrumentation with pads and stuff but it can be used for full backing too if you have limited musicians. Hope that helps!

      • jbriancraig says:

        I’d also say there is probably someone who plays guitar or keys hiding in the congregation somewhere – put the word out, and pray about it!

    Hi Brian!

    My name is Hong from Hong Kong Church of Christ, a song leader in one of the small region (around 200 bro and sis).
    We have been singing 4parts for a long time ago, but sometime also want to have music to enhance the worship mood in the congregational singing.
    However, seldom of us have knowledge of musical instrument, no guitarist, no drummer…

    So that, I am looking for the MMO of some songs which we already knew how to sing, such as Hallelujah, Be still my soul… do you have it? or any other opinions of what would be best for us?
    Thank you so much!!
