    I've done a few fill-ins at my best friend's church, and that's the common denominator - very simple melodies, giant hooks, and unambiguous lyrics that are written to be memorized after one verse/chorus.

    I'd spend an evening or so learning 4-5 of them and they'd inhabit my brain until I could do a flush, after the service. Charting them all out, so they wouldn't be committed to long-term memory helped.

    Read Between the Lies would also be pretty cool.

    Kinda old but...... Check out Third Day version of Agnus Dei. Really powerful, rocking and moving.

    This one's a lot of fun to play


    How about Collective Soul's "Welcome all again"

    Thanks for the "new" song. :)

    Nice to see it re recorded!

    Elevation is our church's go to for upbeat and engaging tunes. This is a really good new one.


    A little older but also good:


    Also Hillsong Y&F are putting out top notch stuff. This one you kind of need loops or a really good keys player:

    Well, it's looking like we're going to be more or less an unplugged or acoustical team... so that will work better. Some of the older folks are set in stone with the old hymns so that's a little problem too. Maybe we can soup up some old standards :huh

    We seem to always have at least 1-2 hymns in the 8 song set. Most if not all of them are powerful and engage/lead the congregation. We stay pretty true with melody etc. Whether acoustic or using electric it's using dynamics through the song that is important.

    We did "Resurrecting" for the first time yesterday morning and the congregation loved it. It's a great song.

    We do these pretty frequently. Both seem appropriate and are very fun to play.

    "This is Amazing Grace"

    "Even So Come"

    Asche zu Asche. Plenty of edge and would get anyone pumped up.

    Wish there was a feature that let me step through the songs posted in a thread so I would not have to do it by hand. My church plays organ. Not much rock happening there, I just am interested in the harder edged Christian music and I am very new to the genre. I am enjoying Jesus Freak on heavy rotation currently.
