We're Back!

Public Worship at 9:00 every Sunday at the Buffalo Chip

We’re so happy we can meet together again. We’ve missed you! As an act of Christian love, and in order to maintain a safe worship environment, please note the following:

• If you have cold or flu symptoms or a weakened immune system, please do not put yourself (or others) at risk. We offer live online worship on our church website so you can worship safely in your home.

• Please wear a mask while not seated.

• For your safety, our volunteers are wearing gloves and masks as they hand out bulletins and Communion. We will not be serving coffee or other treats.

• Please refrain from gathering in groups (outside of your families), and practice appropriate social distancing (no shaking hands, hugging, etc.). Please seat yourselves with 6 feet between your household and others.

• At the close of our worship gathering, please exit promptly, as the Buffalo Chip must close our entry gates as soon as possible.

If for health or other reasons, you are not able to worship with us at the Chip, we invite you to join us for our live worship broadcast each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. Simply press the green tab above called "Worship Service".

Please pray with us that the virus will be contained soon, that God would grant healing to those near and far away who are affected by it, and that God would give wisdom to medical and government personnel who are on the front lines of dealing with the crisis.

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 43


1 Vindicate me, O God, and defend my cause
    against an ungodly people,
   from the deceitful and unjust man
     deliver me!
2 For you are the God in whom I take refuge;
    why have you rejected me?
  Why do I go about mourning
     because of the oppression of the enemy?

3 Send out your light and your truth;
    let them lead me;

  let them bring me to your holy hill
    and to your dwelling!
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
    to God my exceeding joy,

  and I will praise you with the lyre,
    O God, my God.

5 Why are you cast down, O my soul,
    and why are you in turmoil within me?

  Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
    my salvation and my God.

Come People of the Risen King

Come, people of the risen King
Who delight to bring him praise
Come all and tune your hearts to sing
To the morning star of grace
From the shifting shadows of the earth
We will lift our eyes to him
Where steady arms of mercy reach
To gather children in

   Rejoice, rejoice
   Let every tongue rejoice
   One heart, one voice
   Church at the Chip, rejoice!

Come those whose joy is morning sun
And those weeping through the night
Come those who tell of battles won
And those struggling in the fight
For his perfect love will never change
And his mercies never cease
But follow us through all our days
With the certain hope of peace


Come, young and old from every land
Men and women of the faith
Come those with full or empty hands
Find the riches of his grace
Over all the world his people sing
Shore to shore we hear them call
The truth that cries through every age
Our God is all in all


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

I Will Follow


When the sea is calm and all is right
When I feel your favor flood my life
Even in the good, I'll follow you
Even in the good, I'll follow you
When the boat is tossed upon the waves
When I wonder if you'll keep me safe
Even in the storms, I'll follow you
Even in the storms, I'll follow you

   I believe everything that you say you are
   I believe that I have seen your unchanging heart
   In the good things and in the hardest part
   I believe and I will follow you
   I believe and I will follow you

When I see the wicked prospering
When I feel I have no voice to sing
Even in the want, I'll follow you
Even in the want, I'll follow you


When I find myself so far from home
And you lead me somewhere I don't wanna go
Even in my death, I'll follow you
Even in my death, I'll follow you
When I come to end this race I've run
And I receive the prize that Christ has won
I will be with you in paradise
I will be with you in paradise

   Chorus (2x)

Behold my Servant #6 "For You Shall Go Out in Joy"

Steve Gilbertson
Isaiah 55

Today we conclude the magnificent poem of Isaiah 40-55. As we explore his climactic
55th chapter we will see that, not only has the sacrificial work of the Servant renewed
the covenant and extended a welcome to all humanity, but the renewal extends beyond
humanity to all creation. New Creation is the ultimate result of the Servant's work -- and
for that "The trees shall clap their hands!" (And so will we!)

Isaiah 55

1    "Come, everyone who thirsts,
          come to the waters;
       and he who has no money,
          come, buy and eat!
       Come, buy wine and milk
          without money and without price.
2    Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,
          and your labor for that which does not satisfy?
      Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,
            and delight yourselves in rich food.
3    Incline your ear, amd come to me;
            hear, that your soul may live;
      and I will make with you an everlasting covenant,
           my steadfast, sure love for David.
4   Behold, I made him a witness to the peoples,
            a leader and commander for the peoples.
5    Behold, you shall call a nation that you do not know,
            and a nation that did not know you shall run to you,
      because of the Lord your God, and of the Holy One of Israel,
            for he has glorified you.

6     "Seek the Lord while he may be found;
             call upon him while he is near;
7      let the wicked forsake his way,
             and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
        let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him,
             and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8       For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
             neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
9       For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
               so are my ways higher than your ways
               and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10      "For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
               and do not return there but water the earth,
           making it bring forth and sprout,
               giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11       so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
               it shall not return to me empty,
          but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
               and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
12        "For you shall go out in joy
               and be led forth in peace;
            the mountains and the hills before you
                shall break forth into singing,
                and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13        Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress;
                instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle;
            and it shall make a name for the Lord,
                an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off."
