Invitation to Worship


Gathering Music - Will There Be Any Stars in my Crown

I am thinking today of that beautiful land // I shall reach when the sun goeth down; // When thro' wonderful grace by my Savior I stand, // Will there be any stars in my crown?

Will there be any stars, any stars in my crown // When at evening the sun goeth down? // When I wake with the blest in the mansions of rest, // Will there be any stars in my crown?

In the strength of the Lord let me labor and pray, // Let me watch as a winner of souls; // That bright stars may be mine in the glorious day, // When His praise like the sea-billow rolls. 

Will there be any stars, any stars in my crown // When at evening the sun goeth down? // When I wake with the blest in the mansions of rest, // Will there be any stars in my crown?

Oh, what joy it will be when His face I behold, // Living gems at His feet to lay down; // It would sweeten my bliss in the city of gold, // Should there be any stars in my crown.

Will there be any stars, any stars in my crown // When at evening the sun goeth down? // When I wake with the blest in the mansions of rest, // Will there be any stars in my crown?

Invitation to Worship through Praise - Leaning On The Everlasting Arms (UMH 133)

What a fellowship, what a joy divine, // Leaning on the everlasting arms; // What a blessedness, what a peace is mine, // Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning, // Safe and secure from all alarms; // Leaning, leaning, // Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, // Leaning on the everlasting arms; // Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day, // Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning, // Safe and secure from all alarms; // Leaning, leaning, // Leaning on the everlasting arms.

What have I to dread, what have I to fear, // Leaning on the everlasting arms? // I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, // Leaning on the everlasting arms

Leaning, leaning, // Safe and secure from all alarms; // Leaning, leaning, // Leaning on the everlasting arms.

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.

Heart of Worship


Time of Offering - Standing on the Promises (UMH 374)

Standing on the promises of Christ my King, // through eternal ages let his praises ring; // glory in the highest, I will shout and sing, // standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing, // standing on the promises of Christ my Savior; // standing, standing, // I'm standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail, // when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail, // by the living Word of God I shall prevail, // standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing, // standing on the promises of Christ my Savior; // standing, standing, // I'm standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord, // bound to him eternally by love's strong cord, // overcoming daily with the Spirit's sword, // standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing, // standing on the promises of Christ my Savior; // standing, standing, // I'm standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I cannot fall, // listening every moment to the Spirit's call, // resting in my Savior as my all in all, // standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing, // standing on the promises of Christ my Savior; // standing, standing, // I'm standing on the promises of God.

Pastoral Prayer - Todd Spencer

Lord's Prayer - Todd Spencer

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 - By The Mark

When I cross over // I will shout and sing // I will know my savior // By the mark where the nails have been

By the mark where the nails have been // By the sign upon his precious skin // I will know my savior when I come to him // By the mark where the nails have been

A man of riches // May claim a crown of jewels // But the king of heaven // Can be told from the prince of fools

By the mark where the nails have been // By the sign upon his precious skin // I will know my savior when I come to him // By the mark where the nails have been

On Calvary Mountain // Where they made him suffer so // All my sin was paid for // A long, long time ago

By the mark where the nails have been // By the sign upon his precious skin // I will know my savior when I come to him // By the mark where the nails have been

Invitation to Christian Discipleship - Home Far Away

Oh lord have mercy on this weary soul of mine // May I walk in your light everyday // And when I've crossed that deep silent river // I'll be happy in that home far away

I wandered away from the straight and the narrow // Driftin' like a ship lost at sea // No lighthouse to guide my weary footsteps // Til Jesus answered my plea

Oh lord have mercy on this weary soul of mine // May I walk in your light everyday // And when I've crossed that deep silent river // I'll be happy in that home far away

The lights are bright no longer I'm blinded // From the bondage of sin I am free // He lifted me up to join salvation // I'll live on eternally

Oh lord have mercy on this weary soul of mine // May I walk in your light everyday // And when I've crossed that deep silent river // I'll be happy in that home far away

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 - Love Lifted Me

I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore // Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more // But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry // From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.

Love lifted me, love lifted me // When nothing else could help, love lifted me // Love lifted me, love lifted me // When nothing else could help, love lifted me.

All my heart to Him I'd give, ever to Him I'll cling // In His blessed presence live, ever His praises sing // Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul's best songs // Faithful, loving service too, to him belongs.


Love lifted me, love lifted me // When nothing else could help, love lifted me // Love lifted me, love lifted me // When nothing else could help, love lifted me.

Souls in danger, look above, Jesus completely saves // He will lift you by his love, out of the angry waves // He's the Master of the sea, billows his will obey // He your Savior wants to be, be saved today.

Love lifted me, love lifted me // When nothing else could help, love lifted me // Love lifted me, love lifted me // When nothing else could help, love lifted me.
