Brian Wyatt has posted a number of the worship resources used at Alt7 here. Thanks, Brian!
Incidentally, I have plans to use the prayer of confession from the Monday night worship service. I’ve discovered that My City of Ruin by Bruce Springsteen also works well for the musical accompaniment. So if the Black Eyed Peas doesn’t fit your worship venue, I’d recommend that instead. It’s the perfect length for the confessional. Just make sure you have someone to hit the space bar on the “amen.” screen just as he sings “rise up”. It fits perfectly.
If you have other thoughts or resources you’d like to share, please do!
