Jesus Is

Preparing for Sunday - April 22, 2018

Hi Shoreliners,

It was great to have our service outdoors last week! A little windy, but thankfully, no rain! This week, we’ll be jumping in to John chapter one and all throughout this series we’ll be singing songs that highlight the person and work of Jesus Christ. He alone is worthy, He alone can save, may we cling to Christ every moment!

Check out what we’ll be singing this week:

The Solid Rock - Edward Mote

I love new adaptations of old hymns, but we also should sing the originals as well! This hymn is the “original version” of the song “Cornerstone”. So many hymns so beautifully describe who our God is, and this one is no exception. Our hope is in Jesus blood and righteousness, and we rest on His unchanging grace!

Indescribable - Chris Tomlin

This is one of my favorite songs from Chris Tomlin. We worship our God for his sovereign power over all of creation, and over our own lives. He truly is indescribable & uncontainable….truly amazing!

O Church Arise (Arise, Shine) Keith & Kristyn Getty

This song was our theme song during the “7 Churches” series. It is one that we should sing often, and especially this week as look at John 1. In the chorus we sing, “Arise, shine for Your light has come!”. This is a reference to the first couple verses of John 1 where we read that Christ is the true light coming into the world!

Cling to Christ - Sovereign Grace 

We introduced this song at our Good Friday service. It reminds us that we have nothing to offer our Lord, no good works can influence God in our favor. Also, the Christian life is not about us doing things for Christ, but Christ doing things through us! “It’s more than I can do, to keep my hold on you. But all my hope and peace, is that you cling to me!"

In Christ Alone - Keith & Kristyn Getty

We’ll close out our service by singing this well known modern hymn, which echoes the first song we sang. We live and have our being only through the great work of Christ!

Preparing for Sunday - April 15, 2018

Hi Shoreliners,

It was great to have Pastor Chris share the word with us last week and a big thanks to Sony for leading in worship! This Sunday is going to be special, as we are having an outdoor service and kicking off our new study through the book of John! It’s been awhile since I’ve gone slowly through one of the gospels - so I’m looking forward to grow in my knowledge of who Jesus is and what He has done!

Check out what we’ll be singing this week:

This is Amazing Grace - Phil Wickam

This is always a great song to start our time of worship. It helps us put our focus on what Christ has done, and His great grace toward us. The more often we are reminded of who we are, unworthy sinners, the better we can rejoice and proclaim of our great salvation!

Christ Is Enough - Hillsong

As we kick off our study in John, this is a good song to lead us in. We are reminded that Christ is our reward, He is our salvation and nothing in this world will ever compare to Him! One of my favorite lines in the song reminds us that “heaven is our home”. We must have that eternal perspective on our minds - it will change our focus and outlook on life.

Our Great God - Fernando Ortega

If you haven’t listened to some of Fernando Ortega’s music - I strongly encourage you to do so! This is a beautifully written song that describes who our God is, His protection in our lives and His sovereign power over creation. When faced with the awesome majesty of who He is, we cannot help but exclaim “Hallelujah! Glory be to our great God!”

Build My Life - Passion

Our theme at Shoreline this year is “Depth & Devotion”. This song reminds us that our God is worthy all of our praise and every aspect of our lives. We sing together “I will build my life upon Your word, it is a firm foundation”. May that be true in every one of our lives!

O Come Let us Adore Him - Traditional

We’ll close out our service by singing this simple chorus, magnifying the name of Jesus and calling us together, as His body, to come and adore Him!
