With the theme in mind, go to the ?Topical Index? of the hymnal and make a list of the hymns and praise songs as the Holy Spirit leads you. Now go to the hymn numbers you found and in the hymnal see if there are any other hymns around them you might want to us. Add them to your list. YES, YOU ARE GETTING MORE SONGS THAN YOU NEED.
Now, browse the ?Scripture Index with Hymn Suggestion? and the ?Medley Index? section of the hymnal for more ideas. This opens the door for God to send you a message about which hymn to use and in what order. If you use ?Praise Songs? add them.
If you picked an old hymn find a new way to sing it. You will find lot?s of ideas in the article Ideas for Worship. Remember, worshippers can go around the world in seconds on their computers and see live news from around the world on their television, so don't ask them to sing the same old hymn and it's seven verse seven chorus hymn. Get some creative flow and movement ideas to keep thier heart, soul and mind in the service to meet God Almighty and Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit
Keep track of every hymn and every praise song you use by date and A.M. or P.M. My suggestion is you use a hymnal and just mark the page with date and which service.
