 I LOVE YOU LORD TODAY 

I love you, I love you, I love you Lord today
Because you cared for me in such a special way
That’s why I praise you, I lift you up, and I magnify your name
That’s why my heart is filled with praise


My heart, my mind, my soul belongs to you
You paid the price for me way back on Calvary
That’s why I praise you, I lift you up, and I magnify your name
That’s why my heart is filled with praise

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

HEALING

Don't be discouraged
Joy comes in the morning
Know that God is nigh

Stand still and look up
God is going to show up
He is standing by

There's healing for your sorrow
Healing for your pain
Healing for your spirit
There's shelter from the rain

Lord send the healing
For this we know
There is a balm in Gilead
For there's a balm in Gilead
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the soul 

Healing for the soul
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OH HOW I LOVE JESUS

There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
it sounds like music in my ear,
the sweetest name on earth.

Refrain:
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
because he first loved me!

It tells me of a Savior's love,
who died to set me free;
it tells me of his precious blood,
the sinner's perfect plea.

It tells of one whose loving heart
can feel my deepest woe;
who in each sorrow bears a part
that none can bear below.

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

BETTER

People come, people go
Your life has been out of control
You're confused don't worry your soul

It will get better, better!
It will get better, better!
It will get better
God is in control!

Find your praise within your heart
Hold it close, don't ever depart
It gets cold in the night, but you'll be alright

It will get better, better!
It will get better, better!
It will get better
God is in control!

Whatever state I find myself in
I’ve learned how to be secure
Knowing that God
Will supply all my needs
And He'll work things out for my good

Vamp
Better, better
It will get better, better
It will get . . .

God is in control!

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.
