New Song: Across the Lands

This week we will be learning a modern hymn written by Stuart Townend and Keith Getty titled “Across the Lands.” It is a celebratory song that recalls how God speaks. God, in his love, has made himself known to us through creation and through His Son, Jesus, the Living Word. Whether through creation, or through the work of redemption on the cross, we see the…

New Song: Praise the Lord (Psalm 117)

As Christians, our response to the salvation God has accomplished for us through Christ can only be worship (Romans 12:1-2). At our Junior Camp this year we learned a new song called Praise the Lord (Psalm 117) and sang it each night in response to what Pastor Bryan Neal was teaching us from Romans 8. This is a song we are planning to incorporate into our worship on…

New Song: Did Christ Over Sinners Weep?

Earlier this month we introduced an old hymn text set to new music called “Did Christ Over Sinners Weep?” This song helps us to reflect on how deeply Christ is grieved by our sin, and makes us ask ourselves why we tend to not take sin seriously. The fact that Christ is grieved by our sin yet loves us enough to die in our place should cause us to be filled with…

New Song: We Will Rise

The latest song we have been learning on Sunday nights is a truth-filled text about death, mourning, and the hope of resurrection we have in Christ. In light of the circumstances our body is facing right now, it is good for us to sing together of the truths of scripture that under-gird our faith and provide an emotional and spiritual foundation for those dealing with…

New Song: Spirit of God

We are currently learning a new song on Sunday nights called “Spirit of God”. It is an old text (1854) written by George Croly that Karl Digerness set to new music in 2006. The result is a beautiful melody that helps us sing this humble prayer for God to work in us. Croly’s words are a wonderful example of how we should seek the work of the Spirit in our…

New Song: O God of Our Salvation

Over the last few weeks we have been learning a new song together on Sunday nights called “O God of Our Salvation” by Matt Boswell and Michael Bleeker. This song is a wonderful example of trinitarian worship that takes into consideration the roles of the Father, Son and Spirit. You can listen to the song below or purchase it here. O God of Our Salvation by…

New Song: By Faith

This summer at junior camp the staff and campers sang a song each night called By Faith, written by Keith and Kristyn Getty with Stuart Townend. It went perfectly with their theme as Pastor Bryan taught through Hebrews 11. This Sunday we will be learning it as a congregation. Our church has benefited greatly from the many rich songs they have written such as In…

New Song: God the Spirit

The Holy Spirit is perhaps the most misunderstood and neglected member of the trinity. In our day and age there is often not enough thinking and studying and singing about the Spirit’s work in God’s plan for his glory. It is our desire to sing songs that will help us to think rightly about not only the Father and Son, but the Holy Spirit as well.God the Spirit…

New Song: Come Praise and Glorify

The first chapter of Ephesians contains a beautiful doctrinal tapestry of truth woven together with outbursts of worship. The refrain comes over and over again that we are saved “to the praise of his glorious grace” in Ephesians 1:5-6, and “to the praise of his glory” in Ephesians 1:12;14.This Sunday night we will be teaching a new song that…
