FACEBOOK LIVE

 

Welcome:  Say hello!

Zoom Room starts at 10:30 after worship! 

Opening Hymn – “Joyful Joyful”

 

Joyful joyful we adore Thee

God of Glory Lord of Love

Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee

Opening to the sun above

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness

Drive the dark of doubt away

Giver of immortal gladness

Fill us with the light of day

 

All Thy works with joy surround Thee

Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays

Stars and angels sing around Thee

Center of unbroken praise

Field and forest vale and mountain

Flowery meadow flashing sea

Chanting bird and flowing fountain

Call us to rejoice in Thee

 

Mortals join the happy chorus

Which the morning stars began

Father Love is reigning o’er us

Brother love binds man to man

Ever singing march we onward

Victors in the midst of strife

Joyful music leads us sunward

In the triumph song of life

Call To Worship:

Leader: As darkness gives way to light and winter sleep to fresh beginnings,

Response:  We come today to be reminded of God’s love for us. 

Leader: Like the green shoots of renewed life, stirring beneath the soil,

Response: We welcome an awakening of God’s word in our lives.

Leader: In this time of reflection and repentance,

Response: We affirm our identity, we claim our security, as children of God.

 

I Am His And He Is Mine

 

Loved with everlasting love

Led by grace that love to know

Spirit breathing from above

Thou hast taught me it is so

O this full and perfect peace

O this transport all divine

In a love which cannot cease

I am His and He is mine

In a love which cannot cease

I am His and He is mine

 

Heav’n above is softer blue

Earth around is sweeter green

Something lives in ev’ry hue

Christless eyes have never seen

Birds with gladder songs o’erflow

Flow’rs with deeper beauties shine

Since I know as now I know

I am His and He is mine

Since I know as now I know

I am His and He is mine

 

His forever only His

Who the Lord and me shall part

Ah with what a rest of bliss

Christ can fill the longing heart

Heav’n and earth may fade and flee

Firstborn light in gloom decline

But while God and I shall be

I am His and He is mine

But while God and I shall be

I am His and He is mine

Statement of Faith                            “The Apostle’s Creed”

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, dead, and buried;
he descended into hell;
the third day he rose again from the dead;

he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins;

the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.

Amen.

 

You Say

 

I keep fighting voices in my mind

That say I’m not enough

Ev’ry single lie that tells me

I will never measure up

 

Am I more than just the sum of

Ev’ry high and ev’ry low

Remind me once again just who I am

Because I need to know oo oh

 

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing

You say I am strong when I think I am weak

You say I am held when I am falling short

And when I don’t belong oh You say I am Yours

And I believe oh I believe

What You say of me I believe

 

The only thing that matters now

Is ev’rything You think of me

In You I find my worth

In You I find my identity

 

Bridge

Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at Your feet

You’ll have ev’ry failure God

You’ll have ev’ry victory

 

Ending

Oh I believe yes I believe

What You say of me I believe

Prayers for The People

  • The persecuted Christians in Iran, Iraq, Egypt, China and the other 36 nations in which Christians are being persecuted today.
  • Health professionals on the front lines of care
  • Those in authority in government who are responsible for making hard decisions. Arm them with truth and sound judgement. Give them relief from the stress they are under.
  • For those who struggle with depression and anxiety
  • For those who struggle with addiction and may not be able to get to the meetings they need in order to stay sober.
  • For pastors and church leaders who are still trying to figure out what it means to live as the church of Jesus Christ while scattered. Blessings on those Christians around the world who have already been functioning like this for years, and from whom we can learn much.
  • Teachers and students and administrators as they strive to figure this out and give everyone all that they need.
  • We pray for healing. Those who are struggling with physical ailments and can’t get to a doctor at this time – bring them comfort and healing.  Those who have the virus, Lord let them all recover. Heal your world, Lord.

“He Will Hold Me Fast”

 

When I fear my faith will fail

Christ will hold me fast

When the tempter would prevail

He will hold me fast

I could never keep my hold

Through life’s fearful path

For my love is often cold

He must hold me fast

 

Chorus

He will hold me fast

He will hold me fast

For my Savior loves me so

He will hold me fast

 

Those He saves are His delight

Christ will hold me fast

Precious in His holy sight

He will hold me fast

He’ll not let my soul be lost

His Promises shall last

Bought by Him at such a cost

He will hold me fast

 

For my life He bled and died

Christ will hold me fast

Justice has been satisfied

He will hold me fast

Raised with Him to endless life

He will hold me fast

Till our faith is turned to sight

When He comes at last
