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 100

1   Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2      Serve the Lord with gladness!
        Come into his presence with singing!

3   Know that the Lord, he is God!
       It is he who made us, and we are his;
        we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4   Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
       and his courts with praise!

        Give thanks to him; bless his name!

5   For the Lord is good;
       his steadfast love endures forever,
        and his faithfulness to all generations.


Higher Ground

I'm pressing on the upward way
New heights I'm gaining every day
Still praying as I'm onward bound
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground

   Lord, lift me up and let me stand
   By faith on Heaven's tableland
   A higher plane than I have found
   Lord, plant my feet on higher ground

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay
Though some may dwell where those abound
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground

   Chorus

I want to live above the world
Though Satan's darts at me are hurled
For faith has caught the joyful sound
The song of saints on higher ground

   Chorus


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

   Chorus

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)


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...

   Chorus

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

   Chorus


New Creation People
2 Corinthians 5:14-21
ecclesia examen (7)
Steve Gilbertson

2 Corinthians 5:14-21

"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the
new has come." This is a bold statement in scripture. What does it mean, and how
does it
connect to our mission as a church? We'll talk about that this morning.

14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died
for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no
longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.

16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once
regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if 
anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of
reconcilation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting
their trespasses aginst them, and entrusting to us the message of reconcilation. 20 Therefore, 
we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf 
of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so
that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
