    I do this all the time. But it might be hard to find published arrangements. You might have to continue arranging the songs on your own.

    For example, the following is from this past Easter. The song was originally for piano, bass, drums, and strings. We didn't have a string section. So I arranged it for 2 flugelhorns, sax, and cello (which is what we had to work with).

    OP, this is exactly what I was trying to say about going it alone.

    The Baptist Church here in Jackson played my multi-brass CD rendition of Christ the Lord Has Risen Today over their outdoor speakers at the combined Baptist-Methodist Sunrise Service this past Easter. It was heard all over town I was told. It was straight transposition from the hymnals with 2 trumpets on soprano, F Mellophone on alto, euphonium on tenor and tuba on bass. Coincidentally both church hymnals have the same music. Really, it was too loud where I sat.

    A few years back I created a "Top 40" list for the worship band I played in--it is totally subjective, and keep in mind each congregation will have its own version of a "Top 40."

    Above All
    All Creatures of Our God and King
    All Who Are Thirsty
    As the Deer
    Be the Center
    Be Thou My Vision
    Beautiful One
    Better Is One Day
    Blessed be Your Name
    Body Broken, Blood Flowing Down
    Come, Now is the Time to Worship
    Draw Me Close
    Forever
    Glory to the King
    God of Wonders
    Grace Like Rain
    Here I am to Worship
    Holy,Holy
    How Great is Our God
    Hungry (Falling on My Knees)
    I Want to Know You (More)
    I Will Bow to You
    In Christ Alone
    Jesus Lead On
    Jude Doxology
    Let Your Mercy Fall
    Light the Fire Again
    Lord I Lift Your Name on High
    Lord, Reign in Me
    Love of God, The
    O Worship the King
    Open the Eyes of My Heart
    Shout to the Lord
    Still
    Stir Up a Hunger
    Sweetly Broken
    This is Love
    To the Lamb
    What a Child is Meant to Be
    Worthy is the Lamb
    You Are My King (Amazing Love)
    Your Love is Amazing

    Hope this helps.

    Here's another thought depending on your location / cultural influences. Latin praise music will have plenty of trumpet. Ricardo Sanchez and Israel Houghton both make extensive use of trumpets. More so than straight up "rock" praise bands. Clint Brown also uses trumpets along with traditional Inspirational style artist.

    Something the best TOP 40 cover bands do real well is not only play the current hits, but also keep an eye out for the next hits, by following closely the playlists on radio stations. For contemporary worship, here is a good asset. Positive Life Radio: Top Songs
