Preparing for Sunday - June 10, 2018

Hi Shoreliners,

How is your week going? Are you filling your mind with God’s word, seeking to be filled by Him every day? As we seek to live out Romans 12:1-2, I’m more and more convinced that what we fill our heads with affects this in a monumental way. Let us be a church categorized by our knowledge of God’s word, not our knowledge of movie quotes or sports stats. May we be living our lives with an eternal perspective! I’m looking forward to worship with you on Sunday!

Come ready to sing the following songs:

How Great Thou Art - Traditional (Paul Baloche arr.)

This is one of the most popular hymns, sung by believers in many languages all across the world. It was written by a Swedish poet in 1885, translated into German, then into Russian and became a hymn. Our English version was translated in 1949 by English missionary Stuart Hine. However, it wasn’t until George Beverly Shea started singing it during Billy Graham’s crusades that it became such a popular hymn here in America. Since then it has exploded, and not a Sunday goes by without many churches singing this great hymn about the greatness of our God!

Forever - Chris Tomlin

We’ll continue our time of singing by worshipping our God for His faithfulness in all seasons of life. This song is based on a number of psalms, but we’ll be reading 1 Chronicles 16:8-12, which says in part “Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!”

Hymn of the Ages - Rend Collective

We introduced this new song from Rend Collective last Sunday. It is a well-written, singable song extolling the majesty and greatness of our triune God. We are beggars, standing in awe of what Christ has done. He is our redemption, the hope of all the world, the alpha and omega without end. O that we would have a thousand tongues to sing His praise!

Build My Life - Passion

This song reminds us that Christ alone is worthy, and He alone can save. We must build our lives upon His word, it is a firm foundation that we can trust! Let us not be shaken!

All I have is Christ - Sovereign Grace

We’ll finish our service by directing all glory to Christ. We must remember where we were before Christ, understand the work of Christ on the cross, and know how that changes everything! It’s only when we understand our own unworthiness, can we truly understand our new life in Christ - Hallelujah!
