LEANING ON THE EVERLASTING ARMS

 

What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
leaning on the everlasting arms;
what a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

 

Refrain:
Leaning, leaning,
safe and secure from all alarms;
leaning, leaning,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

 

O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
leaning on the everlasting arms;
O how bright the path grows from day to day,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

 

What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
leaning on the everlasting arms?
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

AMAZING GRACE SHALL ALWAYS BE MY SONG OF PRAISE

 

Amazing grace shall always be my song of praise
For it was grace that brought my Liberty
I'll never know just why he came to love me so

He looked beyond my faults and saw all my needs


I shall forever lift my eyes to Calvary
To view the cross where Jesus died for me
And how marvelous the grace that caught my falling soul
He looked beyond my faults and saw all my needs

LORD DON'T DO IT WITHOUT ME

 

Lord whatever You're doing in this season
Please don't do it without me
Don't do it without me

 

Lord, if you're healing, healing in this season
Please don't do it without me
Don't do it without me

 

Lord, if you're blessing, blessing in this season
Please don't do it without me
Don't do it without me

 

VAMP

Don't do it without me

Men’s Day Celebration - Sunday, Nov. 14th

 

 

 

 

 

 

After months, Greater Framingham Community Church has resumed in-person worship services.  Please note the following:

 

  1. Our order of service will remain as it has been for the past 15 months.
  2. Online worship will continue as it has been during COVID.
  3. Seating for everyone will be on the main floor at your own discretion.
  4. We will have seating for those who want to sit by families or sit in their own socially distance bubble.  We will also have seating for those who wish to sit socially distant from others, and open seating. 
  5. As you arrive, ushers will assist you in your seating preference.
  6. We ask that you wear a mask when you come to church.  You are permitted to remove your mask if you desire when worshiping, but be mindful of others around you.  If you have NOT been vaccinated or have not had a two-week period since the second vaccine shot that you not remove your mask at all.
  7. If you have NOT been vaccinated, we ask that you keep your mask on during the entirety of the service as well as when you enter and exit the building.
  8. As you enter the Narthex, you will have an opportunity to pick up the following items before coming into the sanctuary.  Worship bulletin, extra mask, hand wipes, sanitizer and on First Sundays Communion elements.
  9. Also in the Narthex, there will be an offering stand for you to deposit your offering before entering or exiting the service.
  10. Restrooms are available.  We ask that you limit the number of persons in the space at a time.
  11. The exiting of the sanctuary after service will be coordinated by the ushers.  They will direct individuals row by row to avoid crowding during the exit process.  We ask that you exit the sanctuary immediately and not linger in the building.
  12. On Sunday mornings, the church will be open for in-person Adult Christian Education classes.  Classes are taught by Rev. Lackard and Minister Thompson, which will meet in the Fellowship Hall.  A mask must be worn and social distance practices are required.  On-line Sunday classes taught by Kathy Oliver Jones will continue to meet via Zoom.

 

We pray that the worship experience is enriching and that you will feel safe as we worship together!
