cling to christ

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!
