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 45


1   My heart overflows with a pleasing theme;
       I address my verses to the king;
        my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.

2   You are the most handsome of the sons of men;
       grace is poured upon your lips;
        therefore God has blessed you forever.
3   Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one,
       in your splendor and majesty!

4   In your majesty ride out victoriously
       for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;

       let your right hand teach you awesome deeds!
5   Your arrows are sharp
      in the heart of the king's enemies;

      the peoples fall under you.

6   Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
       The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness;
7       you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness.
     Therefore God, your God, has anointed you
         with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;
8       your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.
     From ivory palaces stringed instruments make you glad;
9       daughters of kings are among your ladies of honor;
     at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir.

10   Hear, O daughter, and consider, and incline your ear:
        forget your people and your father's house,
11      and the king will desire your beauty.
    Since he is your lord, bow to him.
12      The people of Tyre will seek your favor with gifts,
        the richest of the people.

13   All glorious is the princess in her chamber, with robes
     interwoven with gold.
14      In many-colored robes she is led to the king,
        with her virgin companions following behind her.
15   With joy and gladness they are led along
        as they enter the palace of the king.

16   In place of your fathers shall be youru sons;
        you will make them princes in all the earth.
17   I will cause your name to be remembered in all generations;
        therefore nations will praise you forever and ever.

This I Know


Up on the mountain

Where your love captured me

Where finally I am free

This I know


Up on the mountain

Where you taught my soul to sing

Amazing grace, the sweetest thing

This I know


And then the storm rushing in

And here I am again

This I know


   Take me up to where I was

   When I never wanted more than you

   Lift me up to feel your touch

   It wouldn't be that much for you


   This I know

   This I know

   This I know

   This I know


Up on the mountain

Where you took me by the hand

Taught me to dance again

This I know


Up on the mountain

Where you took this heart of stone

Put life back in these bones

This I know






Here in this worn and weary land

Where many a dream has died

Like a tree planted by the water, we never will run dry


   So living water flowing through

   God, we thirst for more of you

   Fill our hearts and flood our souls with one desire

   Just to know you and to make you known

   We lift your name on high

   Shine like the sun, make darkness run and hide

   We know we were made for so much more than ordinary lives

   It's time for us to more than just survive

   We were made to thrive


Into your word we're digging deep

To know our Father's heart

Into the world we're reaching out

To show them who you are




Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable

Love unstoppable, anything is possible (3x)




Come As You Are

Come out of sadness from wherever you've been

Come, brokenhearted let rescue begin

Come find your mercy, O sinner, come kneel

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal


   Lay down your burdens

   Lay down your shame

   All who are broken

   Lift up your face

   O wanderer, come home

   You're not too far

   So lay down your hurt, lay down your heart

   Come as you are


There's hope for the hopeless

And all those who've strayed

Come sit at the table

Come taste the grace

There's rest for the weary

Rest that endures

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't cure (to chorus) ...So...




Come as you are

Come as you are

Fall in his arms

Come as you are


There's joy for the morning

O sinner, be still

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal




"Show us a Sign"

Steve Gilbertson
Matthew 12:38-50

As Jesus' popularity grows, so do his critics. They ask for a sign, but in their hearts
they've already made up their mind. They are already plotting against him. How is 
it that these devout people could have been so mistaken about Jesus? And what can
we learn from their example in our own lives today?

Matthew 12:38-50

38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying, "Teacher, we wish to see
a sign from you." 39 But he answered them, "An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a
sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For just as
Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man
be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men on Nineveh will rise
up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching
of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. 42 The queen of the South will
rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of
the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.

43 "When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places
seeking rest, but finds none. 44 Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.'
And when it comes, it finds the house empty, swept, and put in order. 45 Then it goes and
brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there, and
the last state of that person is worse than the first. So also will it be with this evil generation."

46 While he was still speaking to the people, behold, his mother and his brothers stood outside,
asking to speak to him. 48 But he replied to the man who told him, "Who is my mother, and who
are my brothers?" 49 And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, "Here are my
mother and my brothers! 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother
and sister and mother."
