February 3 Sermon “Giving Our Praise” When we think of worship, we often think of singing. That is not an accident; singing to the Lord is encouraged throughout scripture. Although, singing is not the only way to worship God, it is a very important way to express our love for God. In today’s message, we will explore why your song is so important to God.

We have done a lot of these songs before. “Children of God” will be new to you unless you have listened to Steven Curtis Chapman’s latest CD “This Moment”. “Children of God” is being played a lot on my mp3 player as of late. You can listen to a clip and purchase the song from someplace like itunes, or even walmart.com. It’s definitely worth the listen, and a lot of fun. I’ll take time before services this Sunday to teach parts of it, so be early.
“So High” is one of my favorite worship songs of all time. It’s one of only two songs that Cindy and I have recorded that we didn’t write. You can find it on our “Prelude” cd. The writers are Barry & Michelle Patterson from Florisant, Colorado. Check out their version of “So High” by clicking the link below. The link will take you to their CDBaby site. Scroll down to track #3 and click the little play icon. “So High” Link
“All Because of Jesus” is written by Steve Fee, and has become a regular here at Oasis. What a testimony to say, “I’m alive because I’m alive in You”. It’s truly all because of Jesus. What better way to worship Him by proclaiming it to everyone around. You can listen to Fee’s version of “All Because of Jesus” on his myspace page. There’s also a video of him leading it live. (pretty cool huh?)

Thanks for taking time to check out what will be happening on Sunday. Take time to pray for our services, and those who will be serving in them. I’m really looking forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
