Cowboy Church Order of Service

Sunday, July 5 at 9:45 AM

Welcome and Invocation - Tiffany Keith

Opening Hymn - Fountain First United Methodist Church Cowboy Band

Long Black Train

written and recorded by Josh Turner


There's a long black train coming down the line                              

Feeding off the souls that are lost and crying

Rails of sin only evil remains

Watch out brother for that long black train



Look to the heaven's you can look to the sky

You can find redemption staring back into your eyes

There is protection and there's peace the same

Burning your ticket for that long black train



Cause there's victory in the Lord I say

Victory in the Lord

Cling to the Father and His holy name

And don't go riding on that long black train



There's an engineer on that long black train

Making you wonder if your ride is worth the pain

He's just a waiting on your heart to say

Let me ride on that long black train


Repeat #3


Well I can hear the whistle from a mile away

It sounds so good but I must stay away

That train is a beauty making everybody stare

But its only destination is the middle of nowhere



Cause there's victory in the Lord I say

Victory in the Lord

Cling to the father and his holy name

And don't go riding on that long black train

Cling to the father and his holy name

And don't go riding on that long black train

Yea watch out brother for that long black train

That devil's driving that long black train


Welcome/Announcements/Offertory Prayer - Tiffany Keith

Offertory - 

Just a Closer Walk With Thee


I am weak but Thou art strong

Jesus keep me from all wrong

I’ll be satisfied as long

As I walk let me walk close to Thee


Just a closer walk with Thee

Grant it Jesus is my plea

Daily walking close to Thee

Let it be dear Lord let it be


When my feeble life is o”re

Time for me shall be no more

Guide me gently safely O’re

To Thy kingdom shore to Thy shore


Repeat #2


When life’s sun sinks in the west

Lord may I have done my best

May I find sweet peace and rest

In that happy home of the blessed


Repeat #2 (2x)

Cowboy Corner - Kent Ingram

Pastoral Prayer - Bruce Phillips

Hymn of Preperation –

Jesus Help Me To Stand

Recorded by Alison Krauss

Written by Ron Block

[3/4 time]


Through trials troubles and care

I know that Jesus my Savior is there

Giving me faith through darkest days

Keeping me on the narrow way


Jesus Savior  help me each day

Fill me with hope fill me with faith

Darkness retreats at the touch of Your hand

Jesus Savior  help me to stand


Jesus lived through darkest pain

Rejected by men despising the shame

Man of sorrows acquainted with grief

He gave his life so we may be free


Repeat #2


I know that Jesus died for me

Canceled my debt at Calvary

Rose from the dead unlocked Heaven's door

Trust in His love and live evermore


Scripture: Matthew 16:13-20 (NRSV) 


Closing Hymn –

Remind Me Dear Lord

Recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys

Written by Dottie Rambo


The things that I love and hold dear to my heart

They're just borrowed they're not mine at all

Jesus only let me use them to brighten my life

So remind me remind me dear Lord



Nothing good have I done to deserve God's own son

I'm not worthy of the scars in His hands

Yet He chose the road to Calvary to die in my stead

Why He loved me I just can't understand


Roll back the curtain of memory now and then

Show me where you brought me from and where I could have been

Just remember I'm human and humans forget

So remind me remind me dear Lord
