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

 

 

 

THE LORD IS BLESSING ME

 

The Lord is blessing me, right now, right now

The Lord is blessing me, right now, right now

He woke me up this morning and started me on my way

The Lord is blessing Me, right now

 

Weeping may endure for a night

Keep the faith it will be alright

Weeping may endure for a night

Keep the faith it will be alright, right

 

VAMP

Trouble don't last always

No no no no

It won't last always

 

Weeping may endure for a night

Keep the faith it will be alright

Weeping may endure for a night

Keep the faith it will be alright, right right

Trouble don't last always!

 

I'm so glad troubles don't last always

I'm so glad troubles don't last always

 

May not come when you want Him

But He's on time (on time)

In times of trouble, found Him to be

A friend of mine (of mine)

In time storm clouds rise

He'll be there (be there)

All your burdens

I know the Lord will help you to bear (bear)

 

I'm so glad troubles don't last always

I'm so glad troubles don't last always

 

 

 

 

I HAVE DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS

 

I have decided to follow Jesus

I have decided to follow Jesus

I have decided to follow Jesus

No turning back, no turning back

Though none go with me, still I will follow . . .

The world behind me, the cross before me . . .

 

 

TROUBLE DON'T LAST ALWAYS

 

I'm so glad troubles don't last always

I'm so glad troubles don't last always

I'm so glad troubles don't last always

I'm so glad troubles don't last always

 

May not come when you want Him

But He's on time (on time)

In times of trouble, found Him to be

A friend of mine (of mine)

In time storm clouds rise

He'll be there (be there)

All your burdens

I know the Lord will help you to bear (bear)

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 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. On the third day, he arose from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sat 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 life everlasting. Amen!

 

THE LORD’S SUPPER

I Corinthians 11: 23 – 34

Minister: For I have received of the Lord that I also 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.
