PRAISE CHORUSES

 

EVERY PRAISE 

 

Every praise is to our God
Every word of worship on one accord
Every praise, every praise is to our God
Sing Hallelujah to our God
Glory Hallelujah is due our God
Every praise, every praise is to our God

God my savior
God my healer
God my deliverer
Yes He is!  Yes He is! 

 

 

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

 

SINCE I LAID MY BURDENS DOWN 

 

Glory, glory, Hallelujah!  

Since I laid my burdens down 

Glory, glory, Hallelujah! 

Since I laid my burdens down 

 

Friends don’t treat me like they used to 

Since I laid my burdens down 

Friends don’t treat me like they used to 

Since I laid my burdens down 

 

I feel better, so much better 

Since I laid my burdens down 

I feel better, so much better 

Since I laid my burdens down 

 

 

 

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

 

 

PRAISE IS WHAT I DO

 

Praise is what I do when I want to be close to You
I lift my hands in praise
Praise is who I am, I will praise You while I can
I'll bless You at all times

 

CHORUS
I vow to praise You through the good and the bad
I'll praise You whether happy or sad
I'll praise You in all that I go through
Because praise is what I do

Cause I owe it all to You

Praise is what I do even when I'm going through
I've learned to worship You
No my circumstance doesn't even stand a chance
My praise outweighs the bad

REPEAT CHORUS

 

VAMP

Praise is what I do - it's what I do

 

 

 

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

 

I WILL TRUST IN YOU LORD

 

You did not create me to worry
You did not create me to fear
But You created me to worship daily
So Ima leave it all right here

 

My hands are raised because I surrender
Your will is what's best for me
I worship You because You're Jehovah Jireh
I bow before the King of Kings

 

No more crying no more complaining
I believe Your word is true
Lord You promised never to leave me lonely
So this is what I'm going to do

 

Chorus 

I will trust in You Lord
I will trust in You Lord
I will put my trust in You 

 

 

 

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

 

 

I FEEL LIKE GOING ON

 

I feel like going on

I feel like going on

Though trials may come on every hand

I feel like going on

 

 

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

 

HE'S ABLE

 

Exceeding, abundantly, above all you could ask or think

According to the power that works in you

 

God is able to do just what He said He would do

He's gonna fulfill every promise to you

Don't give up on God 'cause He won't give up on you

He's able

Church Annual Meeting

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.
