Sandra McCracken/Integrity Music album “Christmas” on WorshipTeam

Sandra McCracken has released “Christmas” through Integrity Music and all songs are now loaded into WorshipTeam.com “Christmas” is a recording of some great new songs.

Sandra’s Christmas album was recorded in the kitchen of a studio with some close friends, gathered in invitation and community to pause, sing, and rejoice in celebration of the sacred Christmas story… the coming of the light of the world, the prince of peace, the hope of all nations, our Savior and King, Jesus!

Sandra says, “I’ve always loved Christmas music, but making a Christmas album always felt a bit out of reach for me since my favorite Christmas albums are so timeless and the carols are so universal. I’ve been thinking about it for a few years; especially since my trip to Israel a couple summers ago, where I visited the birthplace of Jesus and the shepherd’s field near Bethany. Once we finally got the songs together, I decided I didn’t need to overthink it. I wanted to enjoy the process… to sing the sacred story of Jesus’ birth.”

Sandra continues, “As people listen to this record, I want them to feel invited into the room with us, like they were present when we recorded it, and moreover that this sonic welcome would be a deeper experience of knowing and believing that we are all invited into the story of Jesus’ birth. We still need the light of Jesus to break into our darkness in our lives. Sometimes we need familiar melodies to remind us that we have a place where we belong… that in the broken places, in the waiting, in the hoping, we are not alone! God has come to dwell with us.” Emmanuel… God with us!

Enhance your church’s worship experience this Christmas with a modern worship song specifically for this season. “I Will Remember” is a singable, inspiring, contemporary worship song that refocuses our attention on Christ as the object of our worship, and the direction of our praise in our celebrations and reflections during the Christmas season.
Check out Kim Anthony Gentes “I Will Remember” Christmas song on WorshipTeam.com

In 2005, we released this Christmas song as a single resource on an enhanced CD. It is a modern worship song styling of the ancient Christmas message of Jesus coming to earth from the celebration story of the gospel accounts. We recorded and produced an entire suite of resources for this modern worship song because we thought it would be best to equip churches by providing the most extensive musical resources. This meant, simply, that if someone was looking for a modern sounding worship song, that fit the Christmas theme, they could use this song with their local church music group, regardless of the musician and vocal resources they had available. If they had a choir and complete band, they could use this resource easily. If they had a small group with just one leader, all the components were here to help, regardless.

If you are like me, every time the Christmas season rolls around I am on the look out for fresh Christmas worship songs. It’s always nice to breathe some new life into our Christmas season song lists with fresh, new Christmas worship songs. “I Will Remember” is congregationally-friendly with a strong, memorable chorus (no pun intended). I’m sure “I Will Remember” will find a home in many churches this Christmas season…
…It is obvious that much consideration has gone into pulling together the component pieces of the “I Will Remember”. This is truly a worship leader’s resource created by a worship leader for worship leaders. Hopefully not the last of its kind!!
Review by Casey Corum

I Will Remember” has already received positive feedback from leaders around North America. Here is what others are saying:

“I’ll be singing your song next month (December) at our church. It fits in really well between traditional carols and I appreciate the vertical aspect. A beautiful song with excellent resources.” – Paul Baloche, songwriter, worship leader, recording artist

“There are very few sing-able contemporary worship songs for Christmas. I Will Remember is a breath of fresh air. Its soaring chorus is high on exultation. The words drive us to the meaning of Christmas and yet stay clear of dripping sentimentality. This is a song your church should be worshipping with this Christmas!” – Arlen Salte, founder/director New Creation Ministries & Breakforth Conferences

“Wow, I love it! Really…amazing voice….and great song. We need more Christmas songs like this that offer us a fresh lyrical approach in our expression of worship. I love the whole concept behind this offering.” – Julie Reid, executive editor, Worship Leader Magazine “I Will Remember” holds on to the richness of our history of celebrating Christ’s birth while giving fresh, contemporary language and sound in an offering that is clearly a God-ward worship song.

Paul Baloche /Integrity Music album “Christmas Worship Vol. 2” on WorshipTeam

300

Paul Baloche has released “Christmas Worship Vol. 2” through Integrity Music and all songs are now loaded into WorshipTeam.com “Christmas Worship Vol. 2” is a recording of some great new songs.

One of today’s most influential worship leaders, songwriters and artists, Paul Baloche, releases Christmas Worship Vol. 2 globally Oct. 2 through Integrity Music. The album features Christmas classics seamlessly married with vertical worship lyrics, and is an extension of Baloche’s 30-year mission in ministry to equip worshipers and worship leaders with songs and resources that help them express glory to God.

For singer/songwriter Paul Baloche, writer of worship standards like “Open The Eyes Of My Heart,” “Hosanna,” “Our God Saves,” “Your Name” and “A New Hallelujah,” Christmas is a season of worship. With Christmas Worship, Baloche is aiming higher than nostalgia; higher than recreating the sounds of the season.

“There is so much content and beauty and theology in a song like ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ and ‘What Child Is This?,’ but most of these traditional carols are not vertical in nature; not speaking to the Lord,” says Baloche. “‘O Holy Night’ is a perfect example. At the climax, we’re singing, hands raised, to a thing, ‘Oh night divine.’ By adding a simple chorus at the end, a response to the beauty of the lyric, melody and the nostalgia of these beautiful carols, and then segueing into a first-person response in keeping with the Advent season, it’s amazing the shift in perspective.”

“Paul has a genuine passion to see local church worship leaders equipped to lead their churches week in and week out,” says Adrian Thompson, ‎VP Song & Artist Development at Integrity Music. “This project comes from Paul’s desire to see local churches engaged in worship during the advent season rather than just having a season of special church music.” All songs are loaded and ready to use- just access your WorshipTeam.com system database.

Christmas Songs “Joyful, Joyful”, “Heaven’s King” and others now in WorshipTeam.com

WorshipTeam.com has just added three new Christmas songs from by Dunn & Wilt. Dunn & Wilt (Jeremy Dunn and Dan Wilt) are a collaborative writing duo committed to the “artful advancement of spiritual vitality and transformational theology” in the 21st century Church. Engaging the soundscapes and lyricism of the age, their hymns seem respectfully familiar, yet remarkably new. Dunn and Wilt bring an innovative approach to the spiritual song and the modern hymn. In live settings, their fresh approach is a unique theological and sonic voice in today’s worship landscape.

  • Heaven’s King (Alleluia, Christ Is Born) is a modern Christological (Christ-centric) hymn. Expressing the presence of the future, that “Heaven’s King will right the world,” this hymn will enrich your community with a vital vision of Christ’s Kingship. Heaven’s King works as a Christmas hymn or as a year round anthem.
  • Israel’s Hope (On Your Journey To Bethlehem) is a modern Advent hymn. Lyrics like “Truth and Grace, arrayed in straw,” infuse the worshipper with a fresh vision of incarnation and our journey to the “House Of Bread” (Bethlehem). This reflective hymn is unique and ideal for Advent worship planning.
  • Joyful, Joyful (We Adore Thee) is a fave hymn of Dunn and Wilt. Treated with their signature blend of understated voices, instrumental playgrounds, and sonic tapestries, Joyful is a historic vision of creational theology at its best; postmodernism welcomes this connection of piercing faith with portraits of creation caught in mid-worship.

The songs are full featured with complete lyrics, chord charts and full length audio. Check out these great new songs, hear them in the original key, or choose your own key and play it the way you like it.
