Grace comes like a wave crashing over me Grace comes like a wave crashing over and over and over. I will jump into the water where my soul can be satisfied And your love is overflowing from within me and it won’t run dry. There’s no limit to your promise Jesus you have done it all for me Jesus You have done it all for me. Grace comes like a wave crashing over me  Grace comes like a wave crashing over and over and over.(x2) (Please be seated) “The Heart of Worship” When the music fades, all is stripped away; and I simply come Longing just to bring something that’s of worth, That would bless Your heart. I’ll bring You more than a song, for a song in itself Is not what You have required. You search much deeper within, through the way things appear, You’re looking into my heart. Chorus:  I’m coming back to the heart of worship, and it’s all about You. All about You Jesus. I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it When it’s all about You, it’s all about You Jesus. King of endless worth. No one could express how much You deserve. Though I’m weak and poor, all I have is Yours, Every single breath. I’ll bring You more than a song, for a song in itself Is not what You have required. You search much deeper within, through the way things appear, You’re looking into my heart.

PRAYER ANTHEM                            “Be Still and Know”                       Chapman      THE WORD OF GOD                        Romans 13:8-14                   Matthew 18:15-20 MESSAGE                       How Do We Disagree?                  Chaz Snider HYMN                          “We Are God’s People” We are God’s people, the chosen of the Lord, Born of His spirit, established by His Word. Our cornerstone is Christ alone, and strong in Him we stand; O let us live transparently and walk heart to heart and hand in hand. We are God’s loved ones, the Bride of Christ our Lord, For we have known it, the love of God outpoured. Now let us learn how to return the gift of love once given; O let us share each joy and care and live with a zeal that pleases Heav’n. We are the Body of which the Lord is head. Called to obey Him, now risen from the dead. He wills us be a family diverse, yet truly one; O let us give our gifts to God and so shall His work on earth be done. We are a Temple, the Spirit’s dwelling place, Formed in great weakness, a cup to hold God’s grace. We die alone, for on its own each ember loses fire; Yet joined in one the flame burns on to give  warmth and light and to inspire.
