Invitation to Worship


Gathering Music - I Am Using My Bible for a Road Map

There'll be no detours in heaven // No rough roads along the way // I'm using my Bible for a roadmap // My last stop is heaven some sweet day //

I'm using my Bible for a roadmap  //  The Ten Commandments they tell me what to do // The twelve disciples are my road signs // And Jesus will take me safely through //

There'll be no detours in heaven // No rough roads along the way // I'm using my Bible for a roadmap // My last stop is heaven some sweet day //

I'm using my Bible for a roadmap // The children of Israel used it too  // They crossed the Red Sea of destruction // For God was there to see them through

There'll be no detours in heaven // No rough roads along the way // I'm using my Bible for a roadmap // My last stop is heaven some sweet day

Invitation to Worship through Praise - I Want Jesus To Walk With Me - UMH 521

I want Jesus to walk with me //  I want Jesus to walk with me //  All along my pilgrim journey //  Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me // 

In my trials, Lord, walk with me // In my trials, Lord, walk with me // When my heart is almost breaking //  Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me // 

When I am troubled, Lord, walk with me // When I am troubled, Lord, walk with me // When my head is bowed in sorrow //  Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me // 

Community Invitation - Tiffany Keith

Welcome to Community

We are radically, intentionally, connectional. Connection is fundamental to our gatherings. So, will you take a moment to say “hi” or send a wave? Say good morning to one another by commenting, texting, calling, give your loved ones a hug if you are sitting by them, somehow connect during this time of greeting…. We want people to know that their church family is thinking about them. 


Invitation into Community

If this is your first time with us, will you let us know you are here? Drop-in your email below, on Facebook, or email Tiffany. We would love to know you've joined us!

Heart of Worship


Time of Offering - If We Never Meet Again

Soon, we'll come to the end of life's journey //  And perhaps, we'll never meet anymore // 'Til we gather in heaven's bright city // Far away on that beautiful shore //

If we never meet again, this side of heaven // As we struggle through this world and its strife // There's another meeting place somewhere in heaven // By the side of the river of life //

Where the charmin' roses bloom forever // And where separations come no more // If we never meet again this side of heaven // I will meet you on the beautiful shore //

If we never meet again this side of heaven // As we struggle through this world and its strife // There's another meeting place somewhere in heaven // By the side of the river of life //

Oh, they say, we shall meet by the river // Where no storm clouds ever darken the sky //  And they say, we'll be happy in heaven // In the wonderful sweet by and by // If we never meet again //

(If we never meet again this side of heaven) // I will meet you on that beautiful shore // (Beautiful beautiful shore)

Pastoral Prayer - Kent Ingram

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Worship Song -  Just Over in the Glory Land

I’ve a home prepared where the saints abide // , Just over in the glory land //  And I long to be by my Savior’s side //  Just over in the glory land // 

Just over in the glory land // I’ll join the happy angel band //  Just over in the glory land //  Just over in the glory land //  There with the mighty host I’ll stand //  Just over in the glory land // 

I am on my way to those mansions fair //  Just over in the glory land //  There to sing God’s praise and His glory share //  Just over in the glory land //  What a joyful thought that my Lord I’ll see //  Just over in the glory land //  And with kindred saved, there forever be //  Just over in the glory land //  With the blood-washed throng I will shout and sing //  Just over in the glory land //  Glad hosannas to Christ, the Lord and King //  Just over in the glory land.

Scripture - Book of Daniel

Commitment to Courageous Discipleship


Prayer After Receiving - Todd Spencer

Invitation to Christian Discipleship -  Wild Hearts

God isn't tame, Our God is free // God has no limits, no boundaries // That's the wild heart of our Savior // There's no distance God wouldn't go // To chase us down, to bring us hope  // That's the wild heart of our Savior //

God's running, running To the ends of the earth // God stops at nothing 'Til we return // We're coming back We're coming back to God's heart //

When God speaks, the whole world shakes // The darkness trembles at the name // It's the wild heart of our Savior // Extravagant, relentless still // We're sons and daughters, God calls us children // The wild heart of our Savior //

God's running, running To the ends of the earth // God stops at nothing 'Til we return // We're coming back We're coming back to God's heart //

God's running, running To the ends of the earth // God stops at nothing 'Til we return // We're coming back We're coming back to God's heart //

Wilder than a fire As boundless as the sea // Your love is on the move And it's coming after me // It's Your nature to be gracious // You've loved us from the start // You'll never stop pursuing With Your wild heart

Wilder than a fire As boundless as the sea // Your love is on the move And it's coming after me // It's Your nature to be gracious // You've loved us from the start // You'll never stop pursuing With Your wild heart

God's running, running To the ends of the earth // God stops at nothing 'Til we return // We're coming back We're coming back to God's heart //

God's running, running To the ends of the earth // God stops at nothing 'Til we return // We're coming back We're coming back to God's heart //

Benediction - Tiffany Keith

Go with God as your strength and shield; May your hearts trust in the one who created you, go with courage; may your wild hearts continue to dance for joy, and in the song of your life, praise your God. Now and Forever, Amen.

Sending Music - This World is Not My Home

This world is not my home // I'm just passing through // My treasures are laid up // Somewhere beyond the blue //

The Angels beckon me // From Heaven's open door // And I can't feel at home // In this world anymore //

Oh Lord, you know // I have no friend like you // If Heaven's not my home // Then Lord what will I do //

The Angels beckon me // From Heaven's open door // And I can't feel at home  // in this world anymore //

I have a lovin' mother // Just up in Gloryland // And I don't expect to stop // Until I shake her hand // 

She's waiting now for me // In Heaven's open door // And I can't feel at home // In this world anymore //

Oh Lord, you know // I have no friend like you // If Heaven's not my home // Then Lord what will I do //

The Angels beckon me // From Heaven's open door // And I can't feel at home // In this world anymore //

Just over in Gloryland // We'll live eternaly // The saints on every hand // Are shouting victory //

Their songs of sweetest praise // Drift back from Heaven's shore // And I can't feel at home // In this world anymore // No I can't feel at home in this world anymore.
