April – May Worship Gatherings and Song Sets

Check out what we’ve been singing and studying at our Sunday gatherings.

Throughout the months of April and May we have been studying the parables of Jesus, making our aim to live out the stories of Jesus in ways that propel us to deeper levels of obedience and mission. Additionally, we have challenged one another to live the B.L.E.S.S. life. B.L.E.S.S. stands for Begin in Prayer, Listen, Eat, Serve, and Share. The acronym provides a simple, measurable, and reproducible model for living intentional lives on Jesus’ mission. Who have you been blessing?

Musically, we introduced three new worship songs: Break Every Chain by Will Reagan and United Pursuit, Jesus We Love You by Bethel Church, and Even So Come by Chris Tomlin and Passion. All three tunes make great corporate anthems for declaring the all-powerful saving nature of Jesus, man’s desperate need for a Savior, and the reality of the soon-coming King.

April 3

  1. Hands Toward Heaven (NorthPoint Live)
  2. Our God is Love (Hillsong)
  3. Glorious Ruins (Hillsong)
  4. Break Every Chain (Will Reagan – Jesus Culture version)

April 10

  1. 7 Years  (Lukas Graham – pre-service countdown – NOTE: We didn’t play the whole tune. Lukas’ story-telling approach to the song provided a thematic connection to the parable series “Tell Me A Story.”  However, the lyrical content of the original needed some adjustments and we actually ended up only playing about 2 minutes of the song).
  2. Relentless  (Hillsong)
  3. Do What You Want To  (Vertical Church Band)
  4. Spirit Come  (Journey Church)
  5. Break Every Chain  (Jesus Culture version)

April 17

  1. Across the Earth (Hillsong)
  2. Glory to God Forever (Steve Fee)
  3. The Lost Are Found (Hillsong)
  4. Voice of Hope (Journey Church)

April 24

  1. Relentless (Hillsong)
  2. Open Up the Heavens (Vertical Church Band)
  3. No Longer Slaves (Bethel Church)
  4. Jesus We Love You (Bethel Church)

May 1

  1. Control (MuteMath – pre-service countdown – NOTE: Control is a great tune that can be used as a call to worship. The song echoes several phrases that could be interpreted as prayers. “Take control of the atmosphere,” and “It’s such a beautiful surrender.”
  2. All Our Love (Journey Church)
  3. No One Higher/The Stand (NorthPoint Live)
  4. Good Good Father (Kirby Kaple version)
  5. Jesus We Love You (Bethel Church)

  4. Jesus Son of God (Chris Tomlin)
  5. What a Savior (Hillsong)

May 29

  1. Midnight City (M83 – preservice instrumental tune – NOTE: M83 wrote and popularized the song. It has been used on many television shows and advertisements and thus served to capture the attention of many who would likely recognize it. We played 2 minutes of it as an instrumental with the text of Psalm 47 and Psalm 34 scrolling on the screen. Then we rolled right into Found in You)
  2. Found in You (Vertical Church Band)
  3. Our God (Chris Tomlin)
  4. Soon (Hillsong)
  5. Even So Come (Passion, Chris Tomlin)
