And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. John 15:16

For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong. 1 Corinthians 1:26-27

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

Psalm 99:1-3

I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever;
    with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.
For I said, “Steadfast love will be built up forever;
    in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.”



Grace Alone

[Verse 1]
I was an orphan lost at the Fall
Running away when I’d hear Your call
Father, You worked Your will

I had no righteousness of my own
I had no right to draw near Your throne
Father, You loved me still

And in love before You laid
the world’s foundation
You predestined to adopt me
as Your own

You have raised me up so high
above my station
I’m a child of God by grace and grace alone

[Verse 2]
You left Your home to seek out the lost
You knew the great and terrible cost
Jesus, Your face was set

I worked my fingers down to the bone
Nothing I did could ever atone
Jesus, You paid my debt

By Your blood, I have redemption
and salvation
Lord, You died that I might reap
what You have sown

And You rose that I might be
a new creation
I am born again by grace and grace alone

[Verse 3]
I was in darkness all of my life
I never knew the day from the night
Spirit, You made me see

I swore I knew the way on my own
Head full of rocks, a heart made of stone
Spirit, You moved in me

At your touch my sleeping spirit
was awakened
On my darkened heart
the light of Christ has shone

Called into a kingdom
that cannot be shaken
Heaven’s citizen by grace and grace alone

So I’ll stand in faith by grace and grace alone
I will run the race by grace and grace alone
I will slay my sin by grace and grace alone
I will reach the end by grace and grace alone

You’re Welcome in This Place

[Verse 1]
You’re the King, this is your Kingdom
Jesus come
You’re the Father, this is your home
Abba come

If home is where the heart is
Come and dwell, come and dwell
I will open up to you

You’re welcome in this place
You’re welcome in this place
Come and have your way in us
You’re welcome  

[Verse 2]
You’re the Spirit, we’re flesh and bone  
Breathe on us
Without your presence, we are nothing
Fill us up

If home is where the heart is
Come and dwell, come and dwell
I will open up to you


Now that you are here
we have everything we need
Now that you are here
we give everything we have

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
      creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
      who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
      and born of the virgin Mary.
      He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
      was crucified, died, and was buried;
      he descended to hell.
      The third day he rose again from the dead.
      He ascended to heaven
      and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
      From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
      the holy catholic* church,
      the communion of saints,
      the forgiveness of sins,
      the resurrection of the body,
      and the life everlasting. Amen.

*catholic means universal



Be Thou My Vision

[Verse 1]
Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best thought, by day or by   night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

[Verse 2]
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one

[Verse 3]
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art

[Verse 4]
High King of heaven, my victory won
May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all

Series – Elijah & Elisha: Fire and Mercy
Message: “When God Calls a Man”

1 Kings 19:15-21 (ESV)

15 And the Lord said to him, “Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus. And when you arrive, you shall anoint Hazael to be king over Syria. 16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi you shall anoint to be king over Israel, and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah you shall anoint to be prophet in your place. 17 And the one who escapes from the sword of Hazael shall Jehu put to death, and the one who escapes from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha put to death. 18 Yet I will leave seven thousand in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.”

19 So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen in front of him, and he was with the twelfth. Elijah passed by him and cast his cloak upon him. 20 And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah and said, “Let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.” And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?”21 And he returned from following him and took the yoke of oxen and sacrificed them and boiled their flesh with the yokes of the oxen and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and went after Elijah and assisted him.



All the Poor and Powerless

[Verse 1]
All the poor and powerless
And all the lost and lonely
And all the thieves will come confess
And know that You are holy
And know that You are holy

And all will sing out, Hallelujah
And we will cry out Hallelujah

[Verse 2]
All the hearts who are content
And all who feel unworthy
And all who hurt with nothing left
Will know that You are holy


Shout it
Go on and scream it from the mountains
Go on and tell it to the masses
That He is God
