COVID Protocols
We have loosened up our COVID protocols. While we still want you to social distance, there will be no more noodles in the pew, gently reminding you too. We are also getting rid of assigned seating. Once you arrive at church, you are on your own to find seating, still in family groups, in the sanctuary or in the gym. Please respect social distancing for your own and other people's comfort and safety. If you need help finding a seat, please find an usher.

From Your Church Board . . .
We are so thankful for the ways you have been praying for our church in these days of transition and we would ask that you continue to do so. Pray for one another as we journey together as a church family in this process of identifying our next lead pastor. We would also ask that you pray specifically for us as a board. This coming week, the board will meet for our regularly scheduled monthly meeting and then also meet later in the week with our district superintendent as we continue in the pastoral search process. We ask for your prayers that God would grant wisdom and discernment as we together seek the Lord’s guidance for our church.

Graves Into Gardens

Verse 1
I searched the world but it couldn't fill me
Man's empty praise and treasures that fade
Are never enough
Then You came along and put me back together
And every desire is now satisfied here in Your love

Oh there's nothing better than You
There's nothing better than You
Lord there's nothing
Nothing is better than You

Verse 2
I'm not afraid to show You my weakness
My failures and flaws
Lord You've seen them all
And You still call me friend
'Cause the God of the mountain
Is the God of the valley
And there's not a place
Your mercy and grace won't find me again

You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You're the only one who can

You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You're the only one who can

Children's Blessing

May the God of peace,
Who is our great Shepherd,
Equip you with everything good,
So that you may please God in all you do
Through Christ Jesus, our Savior
Death Was Arrested

Verse 1
Alone in my sorrow and dead in my sin
Lost without hope with no place to begin
Your love made a way to let mercy come in
When death was arrested and my life began

Verse 2
Ash was redeemed only beauty remains
My orphan heart was given a name
My mourning grew quiet my feet rose to dance
When death was arrested and my life began

Oh Your grace so free washes over me
You have made me new now life begins with You
It's Your endless love pouring down on us
You have made us new now life begins with You

Verse 3
Released from my chains I'm a pris'ner no more
My shame was a ransom He faithfully bore
He cancelled my debt and He called me His friend
When death was arrested and my life began

Verse 4
Our Savior displayed on a criminal's cross
Darkness rejoiced as though Heaven had lost
But then Jesus arose with our freedom in hand
That's when death was arrested and my life began

Oh we're free free forever we're free
Come join the song of all the redeemed
Yes we're free free forever amen
When death was arrested and my life began

Great Are You Lord

You give life You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope You restore ev'ry heart that is broken
And great are You Lord

It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only

And all the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry these bones will sing
Great are You Lord

Then I saw a Lamb who appeared to have been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which represent the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
