  2. Amazing Things
    By: Bryan Sirchio

    This song was written to go with the "Day 2" theme of the "Beyond Belief" Outdoor Ministries 2018 Curriculum. The Scripture for the day is Luke 1: 35-55 (the angel's visitation to Mary announcing she had been chosen to give birth to the Christ). The theme for the day is, "What if God is Bigger?" This song helps underscore that God's capacity to enable us to do "amazing things" in this world is unlimited when people say, as Mother Mary did, "Here I am, let it be." Learn More

  4. Ashes
    By: My Anchor Holds

    “Ashes” was written for Ash Wednesday worship, to be played during the imposition of ashes, or during Communion any time of year. It's a reminder that in our messy, disconnected human moments, we can be reconnected to the Divine and to one another through the most elemental things… bread, wine, water, earth. Learn More

    This sunny, singable song is a great match for any congregation seeking a song of praise that includes nature imagery. Creation care is our responsibility as people of faith.

  8. Called To Be God's Glory
    By: Ken Medema

    “See the glory of Creator in the wonders of creation! See the glory of our Savior in the lives that Love makes new! See the glory of God present in the power of Love awakened! We are called to be God’s glory in everything we think and say and do!” These lively, compelling lyrics by Terry W. York and Ken Medema with music by Ken Medema are a call to service based on gratitude for all the love and merciful provisions God grants us in this life. Originally composed for the Alleluia Conference at Baylor University in July 2019, this new choral arrangement by Ken Medema and Cathy Chamblee features choir, piano, organ, cello, and rhythm section with an opportunity for the congregation to join in on the chorus. Suitable for a variety of worship settings, this piece is sure to become a favorite for your congregation!

  9. Children of God
    By: Jim Martin

    Composer and UCC pastor James F.D. Martin (or "Jim" to most of his friends and colleagues) writes very catchy, easy to learn, upbeat and meaningful songs for worship.  Several of his songs are in the UCC's supplemental contemporary hymnal, "Sing!  Prayer and Praise!" and we are delighted to be sharing his music here at CMP.  

    This one has a Latin feel and could be done in a number of different ways.  Jimmy Buffet worship anyone?
