Preparing for Sunday - November 11, 2018

Hi Shoreliners,

I hope your week is going well! Let’s remember to keep our eyes on Christ and our noses in the Book! This week we’ll be seeing that Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life from John 11. We’ll also say a special prayer for Megan as she gets on a plane to Asia! 

Come ready to sing the following songs:

Grace Alone - The Modern Post

I love this song, a paraphrase of Ephesians 1. It’s a great way to start our service as we’re reminded who we were before Christ, and who we are now after coming into His family. We’ve been born again by grace and grace alone!

To God be the Glory - Fanny Crosby

As you know, it’s important to sing old and new songs. We studied the life of Fanny Crosby in our community group, and this one of her most well-known hymns. We played no part in our salvation, so all glory belongs to Him alone! We’ve been redeemed, pardoned, and set free from sin - praise the Lord!

In Christ Alone - Keith & Kristyn Getty

Continuing in our corporate worship, we’ll move deeper into the work of Christ and sing this modern hymn which so beautifully describes the person and work of Christ. Only in Him do we find our hope!

Great are You Lord - All Sons & Daughters

We’ll finish up our time of singing, by simply declaring His greatness. I also like this song because it has a future perspective - one day all the earth will worship Him, every knee shall bow, every tribe and nation will see that Jesus is Lord!

Lord I Need You - Matt Maher

We’ll conclude our service by recognizing our need for repentance, our need for Jesus - the perfect sacrifice. Only by repentance and faith in His life, death & resurrection can we sing “My one defense, my righteous”! But oh what comfort and peace comes when we are born again. He is our hope and stay!
