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 134

1   Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord,
        who stand by night in the house of the Lord!
2   Lift up your hands to the holy place
        and bless the Lord!

3   May the Lord bless you from Zion,
       he who made heaven and earth!

Love Lifted Me

I was sinking deep in sin
Far from that peaceful shore
Very deeply stained within
Sinking to rise no more
But the Master of the sea
Heard my despairing cry
From the waters lifted me
Now safe am I

   Love lifted me, love lifted me
   When nothing else could help
   Love lifted me
   Love lifted me, love lifted me
   When nothing else could help
   Love lifted me

Souls in danger look above
Jesus completely saves
He will lift you by his love
Out of the angry waves
Love so mighty and so true
Merits my soul's best songs
Faithful loving service too
To him belongs


Graves Into Gardens

I searched the world but it couldn't fill me
Man's empty praise and treasures that fade
Are never enough
Then you came along and put me back together
And every desire is now satisfied here in your love

   Oh there's nothing better than you
   There's nothing better than you
   Lord there's nothing
   Nothing better than you

I'm not afraid to show you my weakness
My failures and flaws
Lord you've seen them all
And you still call me friend
'Cause the God of the mountain
Is the God of the valley
And there's not a place
Your mercy and grace won't find me again


You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You're the only one who can

You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You're the only one who can
You're the only one who can


This is my Father's World

This is my Father's world
And to my listening ears
All nature sings
And round me rings
The music of the spheres
This is my Father's world
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees 
Of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought

This is my Father's world
The birds their carols raise
The morning light, the lily white
Declare their Maker's praise
This is my Father's world
He shines in all that's fair
In the rustling grass I hear him pass
He speaks to me everywhere

This is my Father's world
O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong
God is the ruler yet
This is my Father's world
The battle is not done
Jesus who died shall be satisfied
And Heaven and earth be one

This is my Father's world
The battle is not done
Jesus who died shall be satisfied
And Heaven and earth be one

The Commission of World's True King
Matthew 28:16-20
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Steve Gilbertson

Like Jesus' first disciples, today we conclude our three-year walk with Jesus.
It's been a magnificent journey! Along the way, we've learned that Jesus is
indeed "The World's True King" - but a different kind of king with a different
kind of kingdom than anyone ever expected. And now, his mission complete,
he gives us our marching orders. How will we respond?

Matthew 28:16-20 (ESV)

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had
directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and saiad to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been
given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe
all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the
