Here For You

January 22, 2013 By: David Haasis

  "Here For You" is a song that calls us to worship and helps us understand why we gather together. It's a great song for drawing our heart's focus to God. Since the story video already has some great insights into what inspired the writing of the song by a couple of it's authors, Matt Redman and Matt Maher, I'm

I Surrender

January 11, 2013 By: David Haasis

  Last week we introduced the song "I Surrender" which is on the latest live album from Hillsong titled Cornerstone. Originally, the Worship Community was not planning on introducing this song at this time, but over the last few weeks of 2012 several things seemed to indicate this should be the next song. After h

Build Your Kingdom Here

September 7, 2012 By: David Haasis

  Several months ago I was at the Rock and Worship Roadshow and heard a unique and powerful song by Rend Collective Experiment called "Build Your Kingdom Here." Its style is probably best described as an upbeat Irish folk song, and it immediately reminded me of one of my favorite bands, Mumford and Sons. Due to t

Rhythms of Grace

August 22, 2012 By: David Haasis

  "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and y

  twelve30 (CF's youth group) recently went to Colorado for the Desperation Conference, had a great time, and brought back the song "All to Him." Last weekend, some of the youth who went on the trip who are a part of the Worship Community, included this song when they planned the worship set. After listening to t

Forever Reign

July 13, 2012 By: Donnie Berry

  When I heard this song for the first time recently, it immediately gripped my heart. I think it was the declaration of truth about God, paired alongside my inadequacy and fear and failure. I know well what it is to have nothing good in me, for the darkness to close in, to have crippling fear and a wandering hea

You Deserve

June 21, 2012 By: David Haasis

  I always find it interesting when a song's title is not taken directly from the lyrics. I enjoy trying to determine how the title makes sense and adds new perspective to the meaning of the song. "You Deserve" is a song that fits this category. The theme expressed by the title is found in the lyrics even though

The Lost are Found

May 30, 2012 By: David Haasis

  Last fall at the Jesus Culture Awakening Conference I heard a new song played by Hillsong United and almost immediately sensed there was something powerful going on as we sang the song. Singing the faith-filled declarations about what Jesus is doing and who He is with thousands of other Christians was amazing.

Savior’s Here

May 10, 2012 By: David Haasis

  "Are you ready to hear some good news?" In Phil's last sermon, Him We Proclaim, he mentioned how a pastor he recently met started using this question before every sermon to help make sure he stayed focused on the essential; the substance of the gospel. This question is a great reminder for all of us to return o

One Thing Remains

May 3, 2012 By: David Haasis

  A theme that is found throughout the Bible is the steadfast love of God. In some places it is emphasized over and over again, such as Psalm 136 which has the phrase "His steadfast love endures forever" in all 26 verses (Psalm 136:1-26); a reminder of how God works good for His people because of His enduring lov
