We just started a program at our church to teach some more current worship songs to our congregation, since they aren't found in our hymnal. I purchased volumes 2-5 of this series and they are working really well for us, in conjunction with the Song Select add-on of our church's CCLI license (you should have this basic license already for copyright purposes.)
Our church is very traditional and change is difficult, so we are easing them in gently by introducing three new songs during the time between Sunday School and our church service as people are coming in to the sanctuary. We do those same three songs (rotating the order) for three weeks in a row. They are seeing the words on the screen and becoming familiar with the new songs in a relaxed setting, singing along if they feel like it. Then after a while, our pastor chooses songs from our new repertoire and places them within the service itself. We use guitar and piano, since drums are a little much for our church at this point, but even some of the more up-tempo songs can work in a fairly traditional setting. You can make them more or less 'intense' based on your available instrumentation or worship style.
The keys of these arrangements work well for congregational singing, and some songs have been transposed down for this purpose. I find that many of the writers of this style of music are tenors, making other praise & worship books that have the original keys too high for many singers. The CCLI Song select feature gives you access to transposing the available lead/chord sheets into whatever key you need to match what's in these books.
We also cut some of the repeats to fit our needs, but the arrangements give you the option if you like more instrumental fill-in.

Music was harder to play than my other Praise and Worship books. Wished I could have seen the book before ordering it. Some of the music I don't care for. But that's what you get when you order a musicbook. It is a challenge for me. All in all it is a nice addition to my other piano music.

As church organist, I love the arrangements. They are easy to play and don't require a lot of practice so I can choose one at the last minute. I've had several people compliment me on the arrangements.
