Easy Worship Songs

Anyone know of any easy Christian songs to play on the drums? Doesn't have to be worship either, I'm open to any Christian songs, because I only know secular songs so far.

This is a pretty late response, but I'd love to get some more traffic in the drum forum.

This isn't necessarily true, but I'd go so far to say that almost all Christian songs, worship and not, are pretty easy to play on the drums. They are more often than not simple 4/4 and 6/4 grooves at around 70-100 BPM.

That's kind of what I was thinking. The drummer at our church can play almost every song we do with the exact same beat. And we do need more traffic in the drum section.

On the one hand, it means playing them is easy. On the other hand, maybe it means playing them well is harder.

As in, the repetitiveness of playing them can make them harder to play?

As in, creating a unique, non-repetitive style can be harder.

I have that same problem playing bass in worship. There's only so many times you can play G, C, and D without getting a little bored.

On the Topic of "easy" drum parts. I am looking for Some Basic Drum TAB. I play guitar and just got Garage Band App. I want to use it for practicing with. But I am Drum ignorant. Could use few 4/4, 3/4 etc. To get started.
On the topic of repetive run into same problem on Rythm. But I do try to mix in different keys and some older different style music.
