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 31


1 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge;
      let me never be put to shame;
       in your righteousness deliver me!
2 Incline your ear to me;
      rescue me speedily!
   Be a rock of refuge for me,
       a strong fortress to save me!

3 For you are my rock and my fortress;
      and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me;
4 you take me out of the net they have hidden for me,
      for you are my refuge.
5 Into your hand I commit my spirit;
      you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.

6 I hate those who pay regard to worthless idols,
      but I trust in the Lord.
7 I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love,
      because you have seen my affliction;
      you have known the distress of my soul,
8 and you have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy;
      you have set my feet in a broad place.

9 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress;
      my eye is wasted from grief;
      my soul and my body also.
10 For my life is spent with sorrow,
      and my years with sighing;
    my strength falls because of my inquity,
       and my bones waste away.

11 Because of all my adversaries I have become a
      especially to my neighbors,
    and an object of dread to my acquaintances;
       those who see me in the street flee from me.
12 I have been forgotten like one who is dead;
      I have become like a broken vessel.
13 For I hear the whispering of many-
      terror on every side!-
   as they scheme together against me,
      as they plot to take my life.

14 But I trust in you, O Lord;
      I say, "You are my God."
15 My times are in your hand;
      rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from
   my persecutors!
16 Make your face shine on your servant;
      save me in your steadfast love!
17 O Lord, let me not be put to shame,
      for I call upon you;
   let the wicked be put to shame;
      let them go silently to Sheol.
18 Let the lying lips be mute,
      which speak insolently against the righteous
      in pride and contempt.

19 Oh, how abundant is your goodness,
      which you have stored up for those who fear you
   and worked for those who take refuge in you,
      in the sight of the children of mankind!
20 In the cover of your presence you hide them
      from the plots of men;
   you store them in your shelter
      from the strife of tongues.

21 Blessed be the Lord,
      for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me
      when I was in a besieged city.
22 I had said in my alarm,
      "I am cut off from your sight."
   But you heard the voice of my pleas for mercy
      when I cried to you for help.

23 Love the Lord, all you his saints!
      The Lord preserves the faithful
      but abundantly repays the one tho acts in pride.
24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage,
      all you who wait for the Lord!

For He is Good (Psalm 118)


   For he is good, for he is good
   His steadfast love endures forever!
   For he is good, for he is good
   His steadfast love endures forever!

   O give thanks to the Lord (4x)

   Repeat chorus

(Leader): Let all the women say
(Ladies): "His steadfast love endures forever!"
(Leader): Let all the men-folk say
(Men): "His steadfast love endures forever!"
(Leader): Let those who fear the Lord say
(All): "His steadfast love endures forever!"

   Repeat chorus

My Hope is Built

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus' name

   On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand
   All other ground is sinking sand
   All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness veils his lovely face
I rest on his unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil


His oath, his covenant, his blood
Support me in the whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all my Hope and Stay


When he shall come with trumpet sound
Oh, may I then in him be found
Dressed in his righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne!


I Can't Even Walk


I thought number one would surely be me
I thought I could be what I wanted to be
I thought I could build on life's sinking sand
But now I can't even walk without you holding my hand

   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand
   The mountains too high and the valleys too wide
   Down on my knees that's where I learned to stand
   Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

I thought I could do a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty big man
But Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand


I think I'll make Jesus my all and all
And if I'm in trouble on his name I'll call
If I didn't trust him I'd be less of a man
'Cause Lord I can't even walk without you holding my hand


Oh Lord, I can't even walk without you holding my hand

Our Beliefs

Steve Gilbertson
2 Timothy 3:14 - 2 Timothy 4:5

"In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity."
This famous saying summarizes the way we approach our beliefs here at
Church at the Chip. Why do we take this approach, and how do we
differentiate between essential and non-essential beliefs? We'll talk about
that this morning.

14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed,
knowing from whom you learned it 15 and how from childhood you have been
acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for
salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God
and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in
righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every
good work.

4 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the
living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: 2 preach the word;
be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete
patience and teaching. 3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound
teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to
suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander
off into myths. 5 As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work
of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
