Sunday 9 February, 2014 SALTY CHURCH What makes a healthy Church?
Even in darkness light dawns for the upright. (Psalm 112 v4)
Welcome Call to Worship Praise:
The Spirit lives to set us free The Spirit lives to set us free, walk, walk in the light; He binds us all in unity, walk, walk in the light. Walk in the light, walk in the light, walk in the light, walk in the light of the Lord. Jesus promised life to all, walk, walk in the light; the dead were wakened by His call, walk, walk in the light. He died in pain on Calvary, walk, walk in the light; to save the lost like you and me, walk, walk in the light. We know His death was not the end, walk, walk in the light; He gave his Spirit to be our friend, walk, walk in the light. By Jesusâ€™ love our wounds are healed, walk, walk in the light; the Fatherâ€™s kindness is revealed, walk, walk in the light. The Spirit lives in you and me, walk, walk in the light; His light will shine for all to see, walk, walk in the light.
Prayer and Dedication of offering Talk:
Jesus bids us shine Jesus bids us shine with a pure clear light, Like a little candle burning in the night. In this world is darkness, so let us shine. You in your small corner, and I in mine. Jesus bids us shine, first of all for him. Well he sees and knows it, if our light grows dim. He looks down from Heaven to see us shine. You in your small corner, and I in mine. Jesus bids us shine, then for all around. Many kinds of darkness in the world is found. Sin and want and sorrow, so we must shine. You in your small corner, And I in mine.
