Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens. He has raised up for his people a horn, the praise of all his saints, the people close to his heart. Praise the LORD!

"Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble." 1 John 2:10 "We just cannot break the ties of affection that bind us to you dear friends." As Mary Fawcett assured the little congregation at Wainsgate, England, of the bond of love that she and her husband felt for the poor peasant parishioners, Pastor John decided to express his feelings in a poem about the value of Christian fellowship. The following Sunday, John Fawcett and his new bride, Mary, began their ministry at an impoverished church in Wainsgate. After seven years of devoted service in meager circumstances, they received a call to the large and influential Carter's Lane Baptist Church in London. After the wagons were loaded for the move, the Fawcetts met their tearful parishioners for a final farewell, they could not bear to leave them and the wagons were promptly unloaded. They continued their little ministry in Wainsgate for a total of 54 years. Appreciate anew your Christian friends and fellow church members. Seek to show, as John and Mary Fawcett did, a loving concern for the needs of others.

"Running With God"

This Wednesday Night program is for everyone! We will meet at the Alabama Walking Park at 5:00 pm every Wednesday throughout the summer, beginning May 26th. We will have a short devotion, prayer and exercise together. Mrs. Rita Chapman will be our kick-off speaker. Grab your friends and come enjoy the fun and fellowship! Our theme song is "While I'm Waiting" by John Waller. Bible verse is Deuteronomy 10:12: "fear the Lord, to walk/run in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve Him with all your heart." Questions? Contact Marcie Davis at 997-7481.

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer... All the believers were together and had everything in common." Acts 2;42, 44. The local church has been described as a laboratory where believers learn to love one another regardless of color, nationality, or financial status. Our common heavenly citizenship is the one dominant tie that binds us together. One of the basic results of our weekly corporate worship should be the growing bond of love and unity that develops between believers. We should be learning to care, honor, and serve one another in love. We should treat each other with the same tenderness and understanding that we have experienced from God himself. Christian unity does not mean that we must eliminate all diversities. We should be able to differ with each other while maintaining love, respect, and a warm, unified spirit. When our differences get out of hand and hard feelings develop, however, the communion service should always be a reminder that we must reconcile our differences and once more restore a spirit of unity within the body of Christ. The bread and cup of the Lord's Supper should remind us of this truth each time we participate together.




"In Remembrance"

arr. Ragan Courtney and Buryl Red

Chancel Choir

In remembrance of me, eat this bread In remembrance of me, drink this wine In remembrance of me, pray for the time When God's own will is done In remembrance of me, heal the sick In remembrance of me, feed the poor In remembrance of me, open the door And let your brother in, let him in Take eat and be comforted Drink and remember too

That this is my body and precious blood Shed for you, shed for you In remembrance of me always love In remembrance of me don't look above But in your heart, in your heart Look in your heart for God Do this in remembrance of me Do this in remembrance of me In remembrance of me

Greeting and Call to Worship (from Psalm 148)

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. And also with you. Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights above. Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his heavenly hosts! Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars. Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the LORD, for he commanded and they were created. He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree that will never pass away. Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds, kings of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth, young men and maidens, old men and children.
