GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS

Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father.
There is no shadow of turning with thee.
Thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not.
As thou hast been thou forever wilt be.

Refrain:
Great is thy faithfulness!
Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed thy hand hath provided.
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon, and stars in their courses above,
join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow;
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

I FEEL LIKE GOING ON

I feel like going on
I feel like going on
Though trials come on every hand
I feel like going on

I feel like pressing on . . .

I feel like serving Him . . .

I feel like praising Him . . .


WHAT IS THIS

What is this that I feel deep inside
and it keeps setting my soul afire?
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
It won't let me hold my peace

What is this that makes folks say I'm mad and strange?
What is this that makes me want to run on in Jesus' name?
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
It won't let me hold my peace

It makes me love all my enemies
And it makes me love my friends
And it won't let me be ashamed
To tell the world that I've been born again

Ooh! What is this! 

What is this that makes me do right when I would do wrong
What is this when I'm down low, it gives me a song
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
It won't let me hold my peace
BREATHE ON ME

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
fill me with life anew,
that I may love the way you love,
and do what you would do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
until my heart is pure,
until my will is one with yours,
to do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
so shall I never die,
but live with you the perfect life
for all eternity.


HE'S THAT KIND OF FRIEND

If you ever need a friend
That sticks closer than any brother
I recommend Jesus, Jesus
Because He's that kind of friend

He will never, never forsake you
Even though he knows everything there is to know about you
I recommend Jesus, Jesus
Because He's that kind of friend

He'll walk right in front of you to always protect you
So the devil can't do you no harm
He is faithful every day to help you along the way
He's that kind of friend

He'll walk right in front of you to always protect you
So the devil can't do you know harm
If within your heart, you take Him in, new life will begin
He's that kind of friend – Oh
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.
