*HYMN “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” 139, v. 1, 3, 5
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,
The King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him,
For He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near;
Join me in glad adoration!
Praise to the Lord,
Who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do
who with His love doth befriend thee.
Praise to the Lord!
O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath,
Come now with praises before Him!
Let the amen sound from His people again;
Gladly forever adore Him.

WE PRAY AS A CHURCH FAMILY

PASTORAL PRAYER Rev. Brent Porterfield
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be 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.
*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 rose from the dead;
He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at 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 holy catholic church,
The communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting.
Amen.
*GLORIA PATRI
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen. Amen.
HYMN “Be Thou My Vision” 451
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.
Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
Great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.
Great God of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
WE OFFER OUR GIFTS TO THE LORD
OFFERING OF OUR TITHES AND GIFTS
*DOXOLOGY OF PRAISE
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen
