Hey Shoreliners!

I trust you had a great Christmas! We usually head up to Pennsylvania for Christmas to visit Katrina’s family, but this year we stayed and had our first Christmas in Florida. This Sunday is our last service of 2017 - wow! I’m looking forward to having an outside service, enjoying some fellowship together, and praising Jesus for what He did in the mist of us during 2017, and looking forward to 2018!

Check out what we’ll be singing this week:

1.   God of Wonders - Third Day

Taken from Psalm 40:5, this song helps us focus our minds and hearts on our God and his sovereign rule over all creation. He truly is the “God of Wonders” and has shown it to us, not only through creation, but through our own lives as well!

2.   10,000 Reasons - Matt Redman

As we look ahead to 2018, this song helps us remember to bless our Lord at every moment, throughout every situation. It tells us that our Lord is rich in love and slow to anger, and we should never stop proclaiming His goodness. 

3.   All I have is Christ - Sovereign Grace Music

We always need to preach the gospel to ourselves, and be reminded of the amazing work Christ accomplished on our behalf. As we begin a new year, we must be aware of God’s great grace, and that we would be utterly lost without His work in our lives.

4.   Be Thou My Vision - Traditional (arr. by Ascend the Hill)

We’ll finish our service with this Irish hymn, with a prayer that the Lord would be our vision for 2018 and beyond. Only He brings true satisfaction to our souls, may we, as a church, grow in our depth and devotion this year!
