Viva La Blessed (Mashup)

I've been looking for some new inspiration lately and have become very fascinated by the creative musical effort known as "mashups". This Video in particular is incredibly creative...it seems that Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" has become a favorite choice for mashups, so I figured I'd give it a try with a worship song. I looked through our list at NHC for a song that could work, especially looking for something that had a similar temp (around 140 on the metronome)...Matt Redman's "Blessed Be Your Name" ended up being a perfect fit.

I don't know of any easy way to upload MP3's to blogger, so I share this to you via video. Please excuse my vocals and cut me some slack...I am only two weeks out from a tonsillectomy...

"Viva La Blessed"

The MP13 Band and I are going to be working on this and a few other mashups soon...do you have any creative ideas for Worship Mashups?

Introducing Christ

How do you introduce Christ to others? I hope it's at least a little something like Steve Harvey would do it...

Sunday Blitz

> Sam Knight was our guest speaker this Sunday. Sam's a partner at NHC, a great friend, and a powerful communicator. I'll have the podcast up ASAP, as well as a podcast from earlier this year when he shared his faith story with us.

> The message was about crippled feet...how God loves to love those with crippled feet. We all have messed up lives in one way or another, and He wants to use us to bless others.

> The band learned "Carried To The Table" by Leeland, which, I'm pretty sure, was written out of II Samuel 9...fit incredibly perfect with Sam's message, and was a lot of fun to play and sing.

> We're gearing up for TRUNKorTREAT at NHC! I'm currently writing a post all about how we do ToT for anyone who is interested.

> I love sitting with my wife in church, which is something I haven't always been able to do because of her health. I also love picking up my daughter from the nursery and hanging with her between our worship gatherings...she was especially fun to show off this Sunday wearing her Redskins uniform!

> Speaking of which, we won't talk about the game....

> I'm having my tonsils removed this Monday, which means I'll be MIA for at least a week. The MP13 Band always rocks on without me, from what I hear (because I'm usually out of town when they do), so I'm hoping to at least be at church this Sunday to hear it for myself!

Rock on!

Summer of 2009

Nags Head Church has taken advantage of several opportunities to reach the Outer Banks to discover life in Christ during the summer of 2009. This video highlights a few of those opportunities.



How does your church show her community that people matter?

Sunday Blitz

> This one's going to be short because I've got a few projects to finish for F1RST Wednesday, tomorrow, night, 6:30!

> Worship was rocking on Sunday! We introduced two new songs...one was a "performance" song that utilized Larry Z. on the sax ("In Christ" by Big Daddy Weave), and the other was an older song, but new to our church that fit perfectly with the message about idolatry ("You Are God Alone" by Billy and Cindy Foote).

> We've got the first coat of paint rolled in the Kid's Zone! It should be ready for use in just a few more weeks!!!

Rock on!
