Hi Shoreliners,

Last Sunday we prayed for David Bechtel - please be lifting him up as he starts this new stage in his life! This week we’ll be continuing in John 2 and celebrating the Lord’s table together. May we be as zealous as Jesus was about true worship!

Come ready to sing the following songs:

It is Finished - Dustin Kensrue

What a great way to start off our service by rejoicing that our debt is paid, and we can stand righteous before the Father through what Jesus did at the cross. This is a great, upbeat song that reminds us “only by the work of Jesus can salvation be secured.” The work on the cross is finished! Let us sing and rejoice!

All Creatures of our God and King - Traditional (Sovereign Grace arr.)

I love this arrangement of one of our oldest hymns - especially the last two verses added by Sovereign Grace. We need to lift up our voices and sing to the Lord, praising him for His work in creation, His work on the cross, and His future work when we returns “in power to reign.”

10,000 Reasons - Matt Redman

We’ll conclude our opening time of singing by reflecting on the words of Psalm 103. May God give us the grace to bless His name every day, all throughout our lives.

Man of Sorrows - Hillsong

As we prepare our hearts for communion, we’ll sing this song, taken from the words of Isaiah 53 -“He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.” We look not to ourselves, but to the old rugged cross for our salvation, all praise and honor must be directed to Jesus!

Hymn of the Ages - Rend Collective

We’ll close out our service by singing this new song from Rend Collective. 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. As we finish our service, o that we would have a thousand tongues to sing His praise!
