This morning when I rose
I didn't have no doubt

I know the Lord will take care of me
I know the Lord will provide for me
and I know He will
Lead and guide me all the way
Yes, all the way

I woke up this morning, I saw a brand new day
I didn't have no doubt






Lord I lift Your name on high 

Lord I love to sing Your praises 

I’m so glad You’re in my life 

I’m so glad You came to save us 


You came from heaven to earth to show the way 

From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay 

From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky 

Lord I lift Your name on high






The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.


Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.


They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the east, beyond them far;
And to the earth it gave great light,
And so it continued both day and night.


And by the light of that same star
Three Wise Men came from country far;
To seek for a king was their intent,
And to follow the star wherever it went.


Then let us all on one accord

Sing praises to our heavenly Lord

That hath made heaven and earth of naught

And with His blood mankind has bought






It's time again for the holidays
Pain and sorrow miles away
But in my spirit I've got to say
There's no Christmas without You


With caroling and mistletoe
Children playing in the snow
But in their hearts the world must know
There's no Christmas without You


Your gift of love
Such a sacrifice to give
Sent from above
So that we shall forever live

So with our voices lifted high
And praises that reaches to the sky
Jesus You're the reason why
There's no Christmas without You

There is no Christmas time
Without you Jesus






Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.
The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.


The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.
I love thee, Lord Jesus! Look down from the sky,
And stay by my side until morning is nigh.


Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
And fit us for heaven to live with thee there.






Angels we have heard on high,
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.


Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.


Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heav'nly song?


Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

Holy Ghost shower

Holy Ghost power breathe on me


Breathe on me . . .

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.     MASK are REQUIRED to be worn in the GFCC sanctuary and building during all church services.

7.     MASK EXCEPTIONS during church services are for Clergy in the Pulpit, Choir and Musicians in pulpit area and Speakers at the main floor Podium. (Mask can be removed and replaced, by said individuals, when appropriate).

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.
