I LOVE TO PRAISE HIM

(I love to praise Him) 
I love to praise His name 
(I love to praise Him) 
I love to praise His name 
(I love to praise Him) 
I love to praise His name
I love to praise His holy name.

He's my rock, my rock, my sword and shield,
He's my wheel in the middle of a wheel.
I know He'll never, never let me down;
He's just a jewel that I have found.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I love to praise His name.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I love to praise His name.

HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD

The splendor of the King, clothed in majesty 
Let all the earth rejoice, let all the earth rejoice 
He wraps himself in light and darkness tries to hide 
It trembles at His voice, it trembles at His voice 

How great is our God, sing with me 
How great is our God, all will see how great 
How great is our God 

Age to age He stands, and time is in His hands 
Beginning and the end, beginning and the end 
The Godhead Three in One - Father, Spirit and Son 
The Lion and the Lamb, the Lion and the Lamb 

You’re the name above all names 
You are Worthy of all praise 
And my heart will sing…How Great is our God!
WE WORSHIP YOU 
 
You’re the One, we wait on You to come.  
We worship You, we worship You  
Fill this place, Your glory on every face.   
We worship You, we worship You.    

We lift our hands, Lord, here in your presence.   
We worship You, we worship You. 
Forever, my Savior, I live to praise You.   
We worship You, we worship You.  

Heaven, come; Lord won’t You make us one.   
We worship You, we worship You.   
Fire, fall, come and consume us all. 
We worship You, we worship You. 

We lift our hands, Lord, here in your presence.   
We worship You, we worship You. 
Forever, my Savior, I live to praise You.   
We worship You, we worship You.

I'VE GOT THE JOY DOWN IN MY HEART

I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart 
Where?  Down in my heart! 
Where?  Down in my heart! 
I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart 
Down in my heart to stay 
 
And I'm so happy, so very happy 
I've got the love of Jesus in my heart 
Down in my heart 
And I'm so happy, so very happy 
I've got the love of Jesus in my heart.

I've got the love of Jesus . . .

THEY NEED TO KNOW

They`ve taken Christ from christmas
Filled it with earthly joys
Like Frosty and Rudolph
Even a drummer boy
They need to know that Christ is Christmas
They need to know that Christ is Christmas
Sent down to save the world from sin
That`s why he came my friend
They really need to know

They`ve taken Christ from Christmas
Replaced him with toys and games
The world really needs to know
That`s not why he came
They need to know that Christ is Christmas
They need to know that Christ is Christmas

Sent down to save the world from sin
That`s why he came my friend
They really need to know

They need to know he came to save the world
Sent down to save every precious boy and girl
Sent down to save the world from sin
That`s why he came my friend
They really need to know


JESUS PAID IT ALL

I hear the savior say
Thy strength indeed is small
Child of weakness, watch and pray
Find in me thine all in all

REFRAIN
Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and thine alone
Came and changed the lepers spots
And it melt the heart of stone

He washed away
And when before the throne
I stand in him complete
Jesus died my soul to save
My lips shall still repeat

WHAT ARE YOU GONNA NAME YOUR BABY?

What you're gonna name your little baby, Mary?
What you're gonna name your little baby, Mary?
In a little town called Bethlehem there was a little meek and humble lamb
Now what you're gonna call your little baby, Mary?

Angels appeared to Joseph in a dream, Mary
I'm gonna make your son a king, Mary
He said, fear not to take her as your wife
God's gonna make everything alright
What are you gonna name your baby, Mary?

One day Moses heard Him when He called from the fire
Take off your shoes, let me take you higher
He came to the poor, He came to the lost
He's gonna reach out at any cost
What you're gonna call your baby, Mary?

The wise men traveled from afar, Mary
They were guided by a shining star, Mary
They brought their gold, frankuncense and myrrh
When the angels sang this is what they heard

"Glory to God in the highest"
Peace to all mankind, glory
This little baby born in a manger he'll give you peace of mind
Somebody call Him wonderful
Mighty God and prince of peace
Somebody call Him alpha and omega
He is my high priest
Moses said he saw Him in a burning bush one day
John talked about Him
This is what He said
God gave His son
And the son gave His live
That we might have the right to the tree of life

I'm gonna call the little boy baby Jesus
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.
