ecclesia song


We are called to faith, gathered in love
Sent with hope to change the world
We are called to faith, gathered in love
ecclesia, ecclesia, Church at the Chip

   Called to Faith, Gathered in Love,
   Sent with Hope – ecclesia!

Psalm 28


1 To you, O Lord, I call;
    my rock, be not deaf to me,
   lest, if you be silent to me,
    I become like those who go down to the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy,
    when I cry to you for help,
   when I lift up my hands
    toward your most holy sanctuary.

3 Do not drag me off with the wicked,
    with the workers of evil,
   who speak peace with their neighbors
    while evil is in their hearts.
4 Give to them according to their work
    and according to the evil of their deeds;
   give to them according to the work of their hands;
    render them their due reward.
5 Because they do not regard the works of the Lord
    or the work of his hands,
   he will tear them down and build them up no more.

6 Blessed be the Lord!
    For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;
    in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
   my heart exults,
    and with my song I give thanks to him.

8 The Lord is the strength of his people;
    he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
9 Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
    Be their shepherd and carry them forever.

All the People Said Amen

You are not alone, if you are lonely
When you feel afraid, you're not the only
We are all the same, in need of mercy
To be forgiven and be free
It's all you got to lean on but thank God it's all you need

   And all the people said Amen
   And all the people said Amen
   Give thanks to the Lord for his love never ends
   And all the people said Amen

If you think you're poor, well it don't matter
Weak or strong, we know love is all we're after
We're all broken but we're all in this together
God knows we stumble and fall
And he so loved the world
He sent his son to save us all


Blessed are the poor in spirit who are torn apart
Blessed are the persecuted and the pure in heart
Blessed are the people hungry for another start
For theirs is the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God

   Chorus (2x)

Let My Life Be a Light

Let me live, blessed Lord, in the light of thy word
Let my life be a light on a hill
Leading souls now astray to the straight narrow way
Help me do some good deed while I live

   Let my life be a light shining out through the night
   May I help struggling ones to the fold
   Spreading cheer everywhere to the sad and the lone
   Let my life be a light to some soul

Give me wisdom and power, every day, every hour
Let me drink from the fountain above
And guide my footsteps aright through this dark and stormy night
Give me peace, give me joy, give me love


Give me souls for my hire, let my light be on fire
Shining out to the world as a guide
Help me rescue someone sinking now with no hope
That in Heaven we shall ever abide


Because He Lives (Amen)

I believe in the Son
I believe in the risen One
I believe I overcome
By the power of his blood

   Amen, Amen
   I'm alive, I'm alive because he lives
   Amen, Amen
   Let my song join the one that never ends
   Because he lives

I was dead in the grave
I was covered in sin and shame
I heard mercy call my name
He rolled the stone away


(Because he lives) I can face tomorrow
Because he lives every fear is gone
I know he holds my life, my future in his hand

   Chorus (2x)
   Because he lives
   Because he lives

Our Story
Steve Gilbertson 
Acts 13:36-41

In our study of Matthew's Gospel, we've seen that Jesus called his
disciples and sent them out to continue his kingdom work (Ch. 10).
We've also observed that this "sending out" is something every generation
of Jesus' followers is commissioned to do (28:19-20). This includes our
Church at the Chip family! With that in mind, today we begin a short
series of messages called "Discovering Church at the Chip."

26 "Brothers, sons of the family of Abraham, and those among you who fear
God, to us has been sent the message of this salvation. 27 For those who live
in Jerusalem and their rulers, because they did not recognize him nor
understand the utterances of the prophets, which are read every Sabbath,
fulfilled them by condemning him. 28 And though they found in him no guilt
worthy of death, they asked Pilate to have him executed. 29 And when they
had carried out all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree
and laid him in a tomb. 30 But God raised him from the dead, 31 and for many
days he appeared to those who had come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem,
who are now his witnesses to the people. 32 And we bring you the good news
that what God promised to the fathers, 33 this he has fulfilled to us their children
by raising Jesus, as also it is written in the second Psalm,

"'You are my Son,
today I have begotten you.'

34 And as for the fact that he raised him from the dead, no more to return to
corruption, he has spoken in this way,

"'I will give you the holy and sure blessings of David.'

35 Therefore he says also in another psalm,

"'You will not let your Holy One see corruption.'

36 For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell
asleep and was laid with his fathers and saw corruption, 37 but he whom God
raised up did not see corruption. 38 Let it be known to you therefore, brothers,
that through this man forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, 39 and by him
everyone who believes is freed from everything from which you could not be freed
by the law of Moses. 40 Beware, therefore, lest what is said in the Prophets should
come about:

41 "'Look, you scoffers,
be astounded and perish;
for I am doing a work in your days,
a work that you will not believe, even if one tells it
to you.'"
