Get Up John/I’m a Soldier in the Army of the Lord (Tag)


Good morning and welcome to sojourn! Jesus said “wherever two or more are gathered I am there with them” we gather as a family every Sunday to spend time with Jesus and experience his love.

1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
2 I long, yes, I faint with longing
to enter the courts of the Lord.
With my whole being, body and soul,
I will shout joyfully to the living God.
O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, my King and my God!
4 What joy for those who can live in your house,
always singing your praises. Interlude
5 What joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord.                    -Psalm 84:1-2, 3b-5a NLT

Let’s sing to our Great God! 

How Great is Our God


God is great, and holy, and the bible describes Jesus as the spotless lamb… we know God’s way is the way of life, yet we wander rather than following Jesus… and we feel ashamed. God is inviting us through our confession and by his grace to heal our shame, heal our guilt, heal our fear… hear the words of scripture:

9 How can a young person stay pure?
By obeying your word.
10 I have tried hard to find you—
don’t let me wander from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.
12 I praise you, O Lord;
teach me your decrees.

Let’s join aloud:

13 I have recited aloud
all the regulations you have given us.

14 I have rejoiced in your laws
as much as in riches.
15 I will study your commandments
and reflect on your ways.
16 I will delight in your decrees
and not forget your word.
                                                                                   -Psalm 119:9-16

Living Faith


Believers in Christ are people of great hope, because God has provided a great savior. What’s more, you MATTER in Jesus… your significance is in him! How significant? Hear this assuring word:

“He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?”

-Romans 8:32

Our God cares for his people greatly, and has given us all things good in his Son Jesus. As we enter our time of giving together, let’s pray over our offering.

God of grace, we hear your call to generous giving

in the way you meet our needs each day,

and in the peace you give which passes understanding.

Having received so much, we offer all we have,

our time, talents and money for your kingdom.

Bless these gifts for the work of your church.  Amen

Let’s give now with thankful hearts as we continue to sing.

God, take what you’ve given us and use it for Your Kingdom, Your perfect plan, and Your glory.  We pray that our tithes and offerings would be multiplied and used so that we can boast in Your power and grace alone.  It’s in Jesus’ name that we pray.  Amen.

You Don’t Have to Move That Mountain


Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us 1 John 4:11,12(NLT)

Let’s seize this opportunity to greet each other in the love of Jesus 🙂



You Say 

I Surrender All



(16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.) 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” [Peace be with you!]                           -Matthew 28:19-20
