Worship Set List- July 13th & 14th

19 Jul

This past weekend was incredible weekend at Hope Fellowship. We got to hear from our very own Worship Pastor, Aubrey McGowan, who spoke such a God honoring message on being wiser with your money as we continued our “Wiser” series through the book of Proverbs. We also had the opportunity to learn a new song on both campuses: Never Once by Matt Redman. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a song so quickly connect to our people. I really encourage you to not only listen to the music but to listen to the lyrics and really let it penetrate your heart. I believe each of us can sing the words  of this song and look back on times in our lives where without a doubt we saw the faithfulness of God. We love getting to share with you the songs of our heart and we hope you are encouraged by them.

McKinney Set List:

Because of You We Are- Hope Fellowship Original (Aubrey McGowan, Josh Varnadore, Taylor Whiddon, Macy Tiradoegas)


Out of the madness
Christ lifted us from the fall
Into the promise
The father adopting us all


And This now we know
Because of Christ we live
This now we know
He is ours and we are His


We are the sons and daughters
We are the proof your love can change a heart
So unashamed we’re running to you
We know Death is defeated love is complete in
The cross that’s declaring our freedom
We are the sons and daughters of God
Because of you we are


Hope that was lost is
Bursting now inside of us
Clothed in His mercy
Wrath has been shattered by love


We know this is the power of God
We know this is the power of God
We know this is the power of God
That change, that change, that changes us

Our God- Chris Tomlin

Never Once- Matt Redman

Saved and Kept

11 Jul

You know the moment when you read a passage of Scripture and something snaps in your head?  It’s as though the Word becomes alive and  fills you with unexplainable passion, confidence, peace, and hope.  I had that moment this morning as I came across this Scripture:

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
– 1 Peter 1:3-5 (ESV)

If you find yourself discouraged, fearful, or depressed, consider this text!  As a follower of Christ, you are born again through Christ and you are being guarded by the power of God through faith. Your inheritance does not fade and your salvation is sure.  The thing that I love in this Scripture is that it is the power of God that both saves us and keeps us.  I hope that you feel the truth of this… You are saved and kept by a God who does not make mistakes and who never fails.

Sometimes, it is good just to stop and think about the simplest truths of the gospel.  Hope this brings you some encouragement today!
