 Songs for Sunday:

Take a look at the songs for this week, and listen to the playlist if you have time! It is found at this link: TLCC Worship

We're singing a few songs about God's love for us and the response of love we should have towards Him as well.

One of the new songs we're including is All the People Said Amen.  Matt Maher is the composer of the song, and has this to say about its message:  "What are the things that, in the church today, people say 'AMEN' to?  It goes back to the proclamation of the Gospel... that Jesus is Lord, that He came for sinners, that He came to announce the message of good news, number one.  Number two, that He came to bring liberty to the captives, and He came to relieve the poor of their suffering.  What I wanted to do is have a song that talks about those two things, and that is something worth saying 'AMEN' to... that's something worth saying, 'I believe. I agree with that.'  And so, that was really the heart behind the song."
