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 94

1   O Lord, God of vengeance,
        O God of vengeance, shine forth!
2   Rise up, O judge of the earth;
       repay to the proud what they deserve!
3   O Lord, how long shall the wicked,
       how long shall the wicked exult?
4   They pour out their arrogant words;
       all the evildoers boast.

5   They crush your people, O Lord,
       and afflict your heritage.
6   They kill the widow and the sojourner,
        and murder the fatherless;
7   and they say, "The Lord does not see;
        the God of Jacob does not perceive."

8   Understand, O dullest of the people!
        Fools, when will you be wise?

9   He who planted the ear, does he not hear?
     He who formed the eye, does he not see?
10  He who disciplines the nations, does he not rebuke?
     He who teaches man knowledge-
11     the Lord-knows the thoughts of man,
        that they are but a breath.

12  Blessed is the man whom you discipline, O Lord,
        and whom you teach out of your law,
13  to give him rest from days of trouble,
        until a pit is dug for the wicked.
14  For the Lord will not forsake his people;
        he will not abandon his heritage;
15  for justice will return to the righteous,
        and all the upright in heart will follow it.

16  Who rises up for me against the wicked?
        Who stands up for me against evildoers?
17  If the Lord had not been my help,
        my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.
18  When I thought, "My foot slips,"
        your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up.
19  When the cares of my heart are many, 
        your consulations cheer my soul.
20  Can wicked rulers be allied with you,
        those who frame injustice by statute?
21  They band together against the life of the righteous
        and condemn the innocent to death.
22  But the Lord has become my stronghold,
        and my God the rock of my refuge.
23  He will bring back on them their iniquity
        and wipe them out for their wickedness;
        the Lord our God will wipe them out.

I've Been Set Free 

   I've been set free
   I've been set free
   Since Jesus saved my soul, I've been set free
   With blinded eyes I could not see
   But the Lord delivered me
   Now praise his holy name I've been set free

Once when Jesus came to town
Everybody gathered 'round
All the sick and lame were brought to him that day
When the blind man begged for sight
He shouted out with great delight
Jesus touched his eyes and healed him on that day


Once my life was steeped in sin
But I wouldn't let him in
I thought that I could make it on my own
Farther down sin's road I went
Saw no reason to repent
Then Jesus intervened and rescued me


Sinner friend if you're in doubt and you see there's no way out
You find yourself alone in sinkin' sand
Why not give my God a try
Your thirsty soul he'll satisfy
You'll find your place in heaven when you die


God So Loved the World

Come all you weary, come all you thirsty
Come to the well that never runs dry
Drink of the water, come and thirst no more

Come all you sinners, come find his mercy
Come to the table, he will satisfy
Taste of his goodness, find what you're looking for

   For God so loved the world that he gave us
   His one and only Son to save us
   Whoever believes in him will live forever

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions
Come lay them down at the foot of the cross
Jesus is waiting there with open arms (see his open arms)


   The power of hell forever defeated
   Now it is well, I'm walking in freedom
   For God so loved, God so loved the world

Praise God, praise God
From whom all blessings flow
Praise him, praise him
For the wonders of his love

For God so loved the world that he gave us
His one and only Son to save


   The power of hell forever defeated
   Now it is well, I'm walking in freedom
   For God so loved, God so loved the world

Bring all your failures, bring your addictions
Come lay them down at the foot of the cross
Jesus is waiting
God so loved the world

His Mercy is More

What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all-knowing, he counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins, they are many, his mercy is more

   Praise the Lord!
   His mercy is more
   Stronger than darkness, new every morn
   Our sins, they are many, his mercy is more

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father, so tender, is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins, they are many, his mercy is more


What riches of kindness he lavished on us
His blood was the payment his life was the cost
We stood 'neath the debt we could never afford
Our sins, they are many, his mercy is more

   Chorus (3x)

"Just Call it Church!"
Colossians 1:3-20
ecclesia examen (2)
Steve Gilbertson

"As living witnesses of God's new creation in Christ Jesus,
ecclesia is a community of faith, love and hope.
We are called to faith in the gospel of Jesus,
gathered in love as the community of Jesus,
and sent with hope on the mission of Jesus."

These words are printed on the back of every church bulletin, and sung virtually every
time we gather for worship. But have you ever thought much about what they mean, and
why they are so important to us?

Colossians 1:3-20

3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 since
we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints,
5 because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the world
of the truth, the gospel, 6 which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing
fruit and increasing-as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the 
grace of God in truth, 7 just as you learned it form Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is
a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf 8 and has made known to us your love in the Spirit.

9 And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be
filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk
in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and 
increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious
might, for all endurance and patience with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you
to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness
and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness
of sins.

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, 
in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities- all
things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold
together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,
that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and 
through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood
of his cross.
