Music

Prelude           Andante No. 3 from The Altar Candle                        Carlton Mabee

Hymn              Holy Spirit Ever Living                                            Blue Hymnal 511

Holy Spirit, ever living
as the Church’s very life;
Holy Spirit, ever striving
through her in a ceaseless strife;
Holy Spirit, ever forming
in the Church the mind of Christ;
thee we praise with endless worship
for thy fruits and gifts unpriced.

Holy Spirit, ever working
through the Church’s ministry;
quickening, strengthening, and absolving,
setting captive sinners free;
Holy Spirit, ever binding
age to age, and soul to soul,
in a fellowship unending
thee we worship and extol.

Second Reading: Acts 2: 1-21 (Rite-13 & J2A)

A Lesson from the Acts of the Apostles

Anthem          Surely the Presence of The Lord is in This Place                Lanny Wolfe             Redeemer Adult Choir, Soloist Murray Daniels, October 29, 2017 

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
I can feel His mighty power and His grace
I can hear the brush of angel’s wings
I see glory on each face
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place

In the midst of His children the Lord said He would be
It doesn’t take very many
It can be just two or three
And I feel that same sweet spirit that I’ve felt oft’ before
Surely I can say I’ve been with the Lord

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
I can feel His mighty power and His grace
I can hear the brush of angel’s wings
I see glory on each face
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place

There’s a holy hush around us as God’s glory fills this place
I’ve touch the hem of His garment
I can almost see His face
And my heart is overflowing with the fullness of His joy
I know without a doubt that I’ve been with the Lord

Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
I can feel His mighty power and His grace
I can hear the brush of angel’s wings
I see glory on each face
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place

Hymn             We are the Church                                 United Methodist Hymnal #558

[Refrain:]
I am the church! You are the church!
We are the church together!
All who follow Jesus, all around the world!
Yes, we’re the church together!

1 The church is not a building,
the church is not a steeple, 
the church is not a resting place,
the church is a people.
(Refrain)

2 We’re many kinds of people,
with many kinds of faces,
all colors and all ages, too,
from all times and places.
(Refrain)

3 Sometimes the church is marching,
sometimes it’s bravely burning,
sometimes it’s riding, sometimes hiding,
always it’s learning.
(Refrain)

4 And when the people gather
There’s singing and there’s praying
There’s laughing and there’s crying sometimes,
All of it saying
(Refrain)

5 At Pentecost some people
Received the Holy Spirit
And told the Good News through the world
To all who would hear it
(Refrain)
