HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD

The splendor of a King closed in majesty 

Let all the earth rejoice, let all the earth rejoice 

He wraps Himself in light, and darkness tries to hide 

And trembles at His voice, trembles at His voice 

 

How great is our God 

Sing with me how great is our God 

And 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, 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

GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN

 

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

 

While shepherds kept their watching
O'er silent flocks by night
Behold throughout the heavens
There shone a Holy light

 

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

 

The shepherds feared and trembled
When, lo! Above the Earth
Rang out the angel chorus
That hailed our Savior's birth

 

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

 

Down in a lowly manger
Our humble Christ was born
And brought us all salvation
That blessed Christmas morn

 

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born
That Jesus Christ is born

 

 

HE'S SWEET I KNOW

 

He's sweet I know
He's sweet I know
Dark clouds may rise
And strong winds may blow
But, I can tell the world
Wherever I may go
That I have found a Savior
And He's sweet I know

 

 

PRAISE HIM

 

Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him, praise Him
Jesus, blessed savior!  He's worthy to be praised.

From the rising of the sun until the going down of the same
He's worthy.  Jesus is worthy.  He's worthy to be praised

Glory, glory, in all things give Him glory
Jesus, blessed savior!  He's worthy to be praised.

For God is the rock of my salvation
A strong deliverer!  In Him will I always trust.

 

 

 

IT'S SO AMAZING

 

It's so amazing (it's so amazing)
Your love for me (Your love for me)
It's so amazing (it's so amazing)
Your sacrifice for me

 

For every blessing (for every blessing)
Given to me (given to me)
For every valley (for every valley)

You used to strengthen me


I don't deserve Your love
Your tender mercy
If not for Your grace
Where would I be?

 

(Repeat from beginning)

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

 

 

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.
