Dear FM Family,

We gather together to worship with one another albeit in a different fashion. Nonetheless, we gather for worship. Psalm 134 bids us to come into His presence bless his name, sing of him, and otherwise, tell of his wonderful deeds. So, let’s do that. Together for now in our own respective, safe places; yet, longing for the day we are reunited face-to-face with one another. Let that longing inspire our prayers for an end of this pandemic and for the revival we so need. Will you join with us? Let all heaven hear our voices joined in one unified voice.


CALL TO WORSHIP

Psalm 134.1-3 (ESV)
A SONG OF ASCENTS. 1 Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, who stand by night in the house of the LORD! 2 Lift up your hands to the holy place and bless the LORD! 3 May the LORD bless you from Zion, he who made heaven and earth!

SONGS FOR WORSHIP

What A Friend We Have In Jesus  Lyrics  Video

Verse 1
What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer
O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer

Verse 2
Have we trials and temptations Is there trouble anywhere
We should never be discouraged, Take it to the Lord in prayer
Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share
Jesus knows our every weakness, Take it to the Lord in prayer

Verse 3
Are we weak and heavy laden, Cumbered with a load of care
Precious Savior still our refuge, Take it to the Lord in prayer
Do thy friends despise forsake thee, Take it to the Lord in prayer
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee, Thou wilt find a solace there

Verse 4
Blessed Savior Thou hast promised, Thou wilt all our burdens bear
May we ever Lord be bringing, All to Thee in earnest prayer
Soon in glory bright unclouded, There will be no need for prayer
Rapture praise and endless worship will be our sweet portion there

Before The Throne Of God Above  LYRICS  VIDEO

Verse 1
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great High Priest whose name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heav’n He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart

Chorus
Hallelujah, My life is found in Jesus Christ
Hallelujah, For I am His and He is mine

Verse 2
When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin
Because the sinless Saviour died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Verse 3
Behold Him there the risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I Am
The King of glory and of grace
One with Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased with His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Saviour and my God
With Christ my Saviour and my God

Verse 4
I bow before the cross of Christ
And marvel at this love divine
God’s perfect Son was sacrificed
To make me righteous in God’s eyes
This river’s depths I cannot know
But I can glory in its flood
The Lord Most High has bowed down low
And poured on me His glorious love
And poured on me His glorious love

SCRIPTURE READING

Psalm 23.1-6 (ESV)
A PSALM OF DAVID. 1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. 3 He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

SONG OF RESPONSE

Reckless Love  lyrics  video

Verse 1
Before I spoke a word You were singing over me
You have been so so good to me
Before I took a breath You breathed Your life in me
You have been so so kind to me

Chorus
(And) O the overwhelming never-ending reckless
Love of God
O it chases me down fights ’til I’m found
Leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it I don’t deserve it
Still You give Yourself away
O the overwhelming never-ending reckless
Love of God yeah

Verse 2
When I was Your foe still Your love fought for me
You have been so so good to me
When I felt no worth You paid it all for me
You have been so so kind to me

Bridge
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me

RESPONSES

You can give.

We give as a church because giving is an essential part of our worship.
In Matthew 6,  Jesus says, “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. So, we invite you to joyfully give to the God who has given us everything.

You can pray.
  • What did you hear today?
  • How is the Holy Spirit leading you?
  • Who do you need to tell?

If you received the gospel and are beginning a relationship with Jesus, please let us know! We want to help you on your new journey. Maybe you’re returning to a relationship with Jesus and we can help. Share your prayer requests with us. You do not have to walk alone during this time. [My Prayer Request]
