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 144

1   Blessed be the Lord, my rock,
        who trains my hands for war,
        and my fingers for battle;
2   he is my steadfast love and my fortress,
        my stronghold and my deliverer,
    my shield and he in whom I take refuge,
        who subdues peoples under me.

3   O Lord, what is man that you regard him,
       or the son of man that you think of him?
4   Man is like a breath;
       his days are like a passing shadow.

5   Bow your heavens, O Lord, and come down!
       Touch the mountains so that they smoke!
6   Flash forth the lightning and scatter them;
       send out your arrows and rout them!
7   Stretch out your hand from on high;
       rescue me and deliver me from the many waters,
        from the hand of foreigners,
8   whose mouths speak lies
       and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

9  I will sing a new song to you, O God;
       upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to you,
10 who gives victory to kings,
       who rescues David his servant from the cruel sword.
11 Rescue me and deliver me
       from the hand of foreigners,
    whose mouths speak lies
        and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

12 May our sons in their youth
       be like plants full grown,
    our daughters like corner pillars
        cut for the structure of a palace;
13 may our granaries be full,
        providing all kinds of produce;
    may our sheep bring forth thousands
        and ten thousands in our fields;
14 may our cattle be heavy with young,
        suffering no mishap or failure in bearing;
    may there be no cry of distress in our streets!
15 Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall!
        Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!

This I Know

Up on the mountian
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


My Beloved

My Beloved, bring me awake
Take me up to your resurrection place
My Beloved, bring me awake
'Cause I want to feel your light on my face

There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
(Repeat all above)

   I see the light, I see the light
   I see the light, I see the light
   Oh thank you God, I see the light

My Beloved, bring me away
Over Jordan and out of this place 
My Beloved, for you I wait
With you here 'til forever face to face

There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul
There's a sun coming up in my soul, Lord, in my soul


No more sorrow, no more pain
No more darkness weighing down on me
No longer blind, now I can see
Forever light, forever free...

Forever light, forever light
Forever light, forever light
I see the light, I see the light
I see the light, I see the light
Oh, thank you, God, I see the light

I see the light, I see the light
I see the light, I see the light
Oh thank you God, oh thank you God
I see the light

I Love to Tell the Story

I love to tell the story of unseen things above
Of Jesus and his glory, of Jesus and his love
I love to tell the story, because I know 'tis true
It satisfies my longings as nothing else would do

I love to tell the story
'Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and his love

I love to tell the story, 'tis pleasant to repeat
What seems each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet
I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
The message of salvation from God's own holy Word

I love to tell the story, for those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest
And when in scenes of glory I sing the new, new song
'Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long

The Gospel, the Apostle, and You
The Gospel Changes Everything: A Study in Galatians
Galatians 1:11-24
Steve Gilbertson

Forced to defend his apostolic authority, Paul tells of his personal encounter
with Jesus, who revealed the gospel directly to him and commissioned him to
proclaim it to others. In telling his story, we learn something about the objective
and subjective nature of the gospel, and its life changing effects on all who
receive it.

Galatians 1:11-24 (ESV)

1 Paul, an apostle-not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God
the Father, who raised him from the dead- 2 and all the brothers who are with me,

To the churches of Galatia:

3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave
himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of
our God and Father, 5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of
Christ and are turning to a different gospel- 7 not that there is another one, but there
are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or
an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to
you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is
preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.

10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man?
If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.

11 For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not
man's gospel. 12 For I did not receive it from any man, not was I taught it, but I received
it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For you have heard of my former life in
Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God violently and tried to destroy it. 14 And I
was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely
zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when he who had set me apart
before I was born, and who called me by his grace, 16 was pleased to reveal his Son to
me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult
with anyone; 17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but
I went away into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.

18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas and remaind with him
fifteen days. 19 But I saw none of the other apostles except James the Lord's brother. 20 (In
what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!) 21 Then I went into the regions of Syria
and Cilicia. 22 And I was still unknown in person to the churches of Judea that are in Christ.
23 They only were hearing it said, "He who used to persecute us is now preaching the faith
he once tried to destroy." 24 And they glorified God because of me.

Galatians 6:10
So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who
are of the household of faith.
