Introducing new songs is vital to keep worship fresh, but it can be challenging. Over-relying on familiar songs leads to diminishing returns. Regular evaluation of your song choices, even soliciting feedback, reveals when it’s time for something new. Go slow, just 1-2 songs per month. Use repetition across services and over weeks to build familiarity. Tell people it’s new and teach it line-by-line. Surround a new song with “home runs” to avoid alienating some. Try different arrangements over time. New songs, though requiring persistence, breathe life into worship by speaking to new seasons.
