The FBC Library, The Cross Reference, has a Book Club for everyone who reads and loves books – all are invited! In fact, bring your book-loving friends too. Sign up to join the Book Club Group in the App: Home>Connect>Groups or click here. We appreciate your RSVP so that we know how many are going to join us for this fabulous time of sharing and fellowship!

The Cross Reference Book Club book for March: Fight Like Jesus: How Jesus Waged Peace Throughout Holy Week by Jason Porterfield.

Brief overview:
Throughout Holy Week, two competing approaches to peacemaking collide. What if we’ve embraced the wrong one? We desperately need to recover the radical vision of peacemaking that Jesus embodied throughout Holy Week. And we urgently need to be trained in his way of making peace. So, come. Let’s journey together day-by-day through Jesus’ final week and discover anew why he is called the Prince of Peace.

View the book on Amazon here.

We look forward to hearing what you learned from reading this book at our next meeting on Saturday, March 25 at 9:30 AM at the Frater Library. Join the group and RSVP so that we know you’re participating. You can join the Book Club Group and RSVP in the App: Home>Connect>Groups or click here.

Come join us whether you’ve read the book or not – we welcome all discussion. We’re excited to see you!

Sinking Deep
I Will Exalt
Mighty To Save


Verse 1

Praise is rising
Eyes are turning to You
We turn to You
Hope is stirring
Hearts are yearning for You
We long for You


‘Cause when we see You
We find strength to face the day
In Your presence
All our fears are washed away
Washed away


Hosanna hosanna
You are the God who saves us
Worthy of all our praises
Hosanna hosanna
Come have Your way among us
We welcome You here Lord Jesus

Verse 2

Hear the sound of
Hearts returning to You
We turn to You
In Your Kingdom
Broken lives are made new
You make us new


Hosanna hosanna

Sinking Deep

Verse 1

Standing here in Your presence
In a grace so relentless
I am won by perfect love
Wrapped within the arms of heaven
In a peace that lasts forever
Sinking deep in mercy’s sea


I’m wide awake drawing close
Stirred by grace and all my heart is Yours
All fear removed
I breathe You in I lean into Your love
Oh Your love

Verse 2

When I’m lost You pursue me
Lift my head to see Your glory
Lord of all so beautiful
Here in You I find shelter
Captivated by the splendour of Your face
My secret place


Your love so deep is washing over me
Your face is all I seek You are my ev’rything
Jesus Christ You are my one desire
Lord hear my only cry to know You all my life

(back to top)

I Will Exalt


Your Presence is all I need
It’s all I want it’s all I seek
Without it without it there’s no meaning
Your Presence is the air I breathe
The song I sing and the love I need
And without it without it I’m not living


I will exalt You Lord I will exalt You Lord
There is no one like You God
I will exalt You Lord I will exalt You Lord
No other name be lifted high


There will be no one like You
And no one beside You
You alone are worthy of all praise


Your Presence is all I need
It’s all I want all I seek
Without it without it there’s no meaning

Mighty To Save

Verse 1

Ev’ryone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Ev’ryone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations


Saviour He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

Verse 2

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Ev’rything I believe in
Now I surrender


Shine your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King
Shine your light and let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King
