Music for Sunday 2/19/17

If I told you my story,
You would hear hope.

Before we came to know Jesus, each one of us had the same story as every single other person on the planet.  It doesn’t matter who we are, where we come from, or what we’ve done.  We all start out with the same story: bound by sin, without hope, separated from God.

Oh, to tell you my story
Is to tell of Him.

But when we become followers of Jesus, we have a new story: one of hope, love, life, victory, freedom.  It’s the story of mercy and kindness and grace–the story of a Savior.  The story of life that wasn’t ours, life that overcame the grave.

If I told you my story,
You would hear hope that wouldn’t let go.
And if I told you my story,
You would hear love that never gave up.
And if I told you my story,
You would hear life, but it wasn’t mine.

If I told you my story,
You would hear victory over the enemy.
And if I told you my story,
You would hear freedom that was won for me.
And if I told you my story,
You would hear life overcome the grave.

If I should speak, then let it be
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin,
Of when justice was served, and where mercy wins;
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in.
Oh, to tell you my story is to tell of Him.
–My Story

Our hymns this week are all about singing, telling, and sharing our story: I Will Sing the Wondrous Story, O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing, and I Love to Tell the Story.  And we’ll end the service with Blessed Assurance, echoing the chorus that’s also part of My Story:

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long!

Great Faith: Great Story

We have an amazing story of faith to share with the world around us and its a story that needs to be told. If you are a believer you have a story to tell. Join us this Sunday as we talk about this story and sharing it with others.

Our main passage of scripture will come from 1 Peter 3:13-16. Take a few minutes to read over it, pray through it and ask God to prepare your heart for worship. Then come join us Sunday morning at 11 a.m. for worship. Sunday school starts at 9:45. See you then!

We Are the Body

This Sunday’s message will keep us looking at the great faith we are a part of as we consider what it means to be a part of a great body of believers, the body of Christ. Each week we have built upon a truth of God’s word about our faith and this week will be no different. Our main passage of scripture will come from 1 Corinthians 12.12-14 as we consider what it means to be a part of the body. One thing scripture is certain about, we were not created to live in isolation. That holds true whether we are Christians or not.

Join us Sunday as we consider how this impact our lives and what it means to be a part of such a great body. We have a great faith and are part of a great body!
