Contemporary

In 2012, St. Andrew added to the breadth of musical styles with contemporary worship as we launched services in Smith Worship Center. Contemporary Worship Curator Josh Miller leads this style of worship each week with a live band. Our contemporary team has also introduced Night of Worship, on select Sunday evenings, for our community to more deeply explore the meaning of worship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Contemporary Worship Playlist



Our playlist consists of songs that we rotate through in our worship services. Our desire at St. Andrew is that we can discover deeper purpose and authenticity in our worship experience that extends beyond Sunday mornings.

Playlist Inspirations


"Build My Life" by Pat Barrett, Matt Redman, Brett Younker, Kirby Kaple, Karl Martin

I find joy and encouragement in worshipping to the song "Build my life" for many reasons, but none more because it encourages me to close my eyes to my fail​​​​ures, so I will "open my eyes in wonder" to who God is. Singing that He is "Worthy of every breath" of praise I have to give is a great reminder that there is not one word or even one breath that isn't better purposed as an offering of praise. These little, but meaningful reminders are very helpful in living for Him.

– Josh Miller, Contemporary Worship Curator

"Glimmer In The Dust" by Joel Houston, Dylan Thomas, Aodhan King & Benjamin Hastings

“Glimmer In The Dust” is a song that has so much meaning to me. I think one of the most important messages this song sends is that God is telling this big beautiful, and amazing story and we get to be apart of it. All of us! Every one of us belong. We are one small “glimmer”, one small piece, in a story that is so much bigger than anything our minds can comprehend or imagine. And one day, in the end, we will be fully known and fully in the presence of God with the entirety of that picture revealed.

"Crowns" by Michael Fatkin, Scott Groom, and Benjamin Hastings

"Crowns" is a great reminder where I find genuine wealth, happiness, and contentment. It is very easy for me to worry about finances or self-image; however, "Crowns" reminds me that Christ's death and resurrection are where my true wealth and identity exists. Often times I can fall into a mindset of asking: what will God do for me? This song, however, reminds me that what I truly needed was already done on the cross.
