Hi Shoreliners,

The Benham family will be on vacation for the next couple weeks, so we have the privilege of having some great guest pastors come and share the word with us. This week, Pastor Carl Dixon is coming and will be teaching us how to be filled with the Spirit. Pastor Carl is a man worthy of respect and honor, this Sunday is not to be missed!

Come ready to sing the following songs:

Your Love Awakens Me - Phil Wickam

We’ll start our service by praising the Lord for opening up our eyes to believe the gospel. Jesus’ work on the cross broke down the walls between us, and by His grace we now have access to the Father. His love is great! And He is greatly to be praised!

Hosanna (Praise is Rising) - Paul Baloche

We’ll continue with the theme of salvation by singing this great song by Paul Baloche. This song describes some of the changes that happen when we get saved - praise rises, eyes are opened, broken hearts are healed and hope is stirred. He is worthy of all our praise!

Cornerstone - Hillsong

Our final two songs reflect on God’s sovereignty and care in our lives. We’ll start by sining this modern version of “My Hope is built on Nothing Less” by Hillsong Worship. If our hope is built on Christ, then we can have confidence in his sovereign plan for our lives, no matter what “storms” may come our way. He is Lord over all!

It is Well With My Soul - Traditional

We’ll finish our time of corporate worship by singing this great hymn. It if filled with beautiful metaphors that describe our lives and our relationship with Christ. Lines like, “when peace like a river”, “when sorrows like sea billows role”, “my sin not in part, but the whole, was nailed to the cross and I bear it no more”. We can honestly sing, “It is well with my soul” because of what Christ has done. Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord oh my soul! 

Give me Faith - Elevation

We’ll finish our service by coming to the Lord in humility and asking Him to increase our faith. We are weak in our sinful flesh, but we have been given a new nature and have been made new creations in Christ. As we walk with the Lord, we grow in faith as we give glory to Him. The Holy Spirit enables us to walk in faith and trust in His goodness. May we be filled daily!
