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

 

THE BLOOD WILL NEVER LOSE ITS POWER

 

The blood that Jesus shed for me
Way back on Calvary
The blood that gives me strength from day to day
It will never lose its power


It reaches to the highest mountain
It flows to the lowest valley
The blood that gives me strength from day to day
It will never lose its power

 

It soothes my doubts and calms my fears
And it dries all my tears
The blood that gives me strength from day to day
It will never lose its power

 

It reaches to the highest mountain
It flows to the lowest valley
The blood that gives me strength from day to day
It will never lose its power

THE STORM IS PASSING OVER

 

O courage my soul and let us carry on

For the night is dark and I am far from home

Thanks be to God, the morning light appears

The storm is passing over

The storm is passing over

The storm is passing over, Hallelu

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The storm is passing over

The storm is passing over

The storm is passing over, Hallelu

 HOLY COMMUNION

Image removed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

Pastor:       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.

 

Pastor:       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.

 

Pastor:       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.

 

Pastor:       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.

 

Pastor:       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.

 

Pastor:       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.

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.
