TRADING MY SORROWS

 

I’m trading my sorrows, I’m trading my shame

I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord

I’m trading my sickness, I’m trading my pain

I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord

 

Yes Lord, Yes Lord, Yes, Yes Lord

Yes Lord, Yes Lord, Yes, Yes Lord

Yes Lord, Yes Lord, Yes, Yes Lord, Amen!

WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE LORD

 

When I Think about the Lord,

How He saved me, how He raised me,

How He filled me,  with the Holy Ghost.

How He healed me, to the uttermost.

 

When I Think about the Lord,

How He picked me up and turned me around,

How He placed my feet on solid ground

 

It makes me wanna shout

Hallelujah, Thank you Jesus,

Lord, your worthy, of all the glory,

and all the honor, and all the praise

 

 

ALLELUIA, SALVATION AND GLORY

 

Alleluia, salvation and glory

Honor and power unto the Lord our God

For the Lord our God is mighty.  The Lord our God is omnipotent.

The Lord our God is wonderful

 

All praises be to the King of kings and the Lord of Lords

He is wonderful!

I KNOW I'VE BEEN CHANGED

 

I know I've been changed  

I know I've been changed  

 

I know I've been changed

Angels in Heaven done signed my name

 

 

 

 

Well if you don't believe that I've been redeemed you know the

Angels in Heaven done signed my name

Oh follow me down to that old Jordan stream

Angels in Heaven done signed my name  

 

 

 

I stepped in the water and the water was cold you know the

Angels in Heaven one signed my name

O it chilled my body but not my soul

Angels in Heaven done signed my name 

 

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

WE'RE BLESSED

 

Blessed!  Blessed!  Blessed!  Blessed!

 

Since thou hast walked uprightly, as a light in a dark land 

Since thou hast placed in thine heart, all the lord's commands 

He's set thee above nations, He's cast thine enemies away 

He's standing up within thee, so let me hear you say 

 

We're blessed in the city, We're blessed in the field. 

We're blessed when we come and when we go. 

We cast down every stronghold.  Sickness and poverty must cease. 

For the devil is defeated.  We are blessed! 

 

Thou believeth in GOD only, and put no confidence in man 

Everything that does concern thee, you placed it in His hands 

Though a host rise up against thee, to try and spoil the day 

They'll rush in one road to harm thee, but they'll flee seven ways 

 

Late in the midnight hour, God's gonna turn it around 

It's gonna work in your favor

Late in the midnight hour,  

God's gonna turn it around, and around, and around, and around, and around

HOLY COMMUNION

 

When we approach God's Holy Table, we do so with respect and reverence for who God is. It is not done with noise, commotion, moving around, or confusion.  Please respect God by respecting His Holy Table.

 

 

CONFESSION OF FAITH

 

The church acknowledges as its head, God, the Creator of all heaven and earth, Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Holy Spirit the Comforter. It acknowledges as brothers and sisters in Christ, all who share in this confession.  It believes that all of those who are committed to building of God's Kingdom and strive to keep His commandments are invited to partake of the Lord's Supper and that all such, with their families, are invited to the Ordinance of Baptism.

 

 

 

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH:

“APOSTLES” 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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried. The third day he arose 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 Spirit, the Church universal], the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.

THE LORD’S SUPPER

 

I Corinthians 11: 23 – 34

 

 

Minister:    For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you. That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

 

People:      And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, Take eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

 

Minister:    After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the New Testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

 

People:      For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he comes.

 

Minister:    Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

 

People:      But let a person examine themselves, and so let them eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

 

Minister:    For they that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to themselves, not discerning the Lord’s body.

 

People:      For this cause, many are weak in [Faith] and sick among you, and many sleep.

 

Minister:    For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

 

People:      But when we judge, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

 

Minister:    Wherefore, my friends, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

 

All:               And if a person hungers, let them eat at home; that they come not together to this table, disregarding its purpose, and unto condemnation.  And the rest will I set in order when I come.
