"Holy Holy"
Darlene Skinner

Set a timer for 5 minutes and use a breath prayer.
On the inhale, pray, "You are the God of peace..."
On the exhale, pray, "...You are with me."

Eternal Light, shine into our hearts.
Eternal Goodness, deliver us from evil.
Eternal Power, be our support.
Eternal Wisdom, scatter the darkness of our ignorance.
Eternal Pity, have mercy on us.
That with all our heart and mind and soul and strength
we may seek your face
and be brought by your infinite mercy to your holy presence;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

"Stand Up and Bless the Lord"
Torin Wright & Darlene Skinner
1. Stand up and bless the Lord,
ye people of his choice;
stand up and bless the Lord your God
with heart and soul and voice.

2. Though high above all praise,
above all blessing high,
who would not fear his holy name,
and laud and magnify?

3. O for the living flame,
from his own altar brought,
to touch our lips, our minds inspire,
and wing to heaven our thought!

4. God is our strength and song,
and his salvation ours;
then be his love in Christ proclaimed
with all our ransomed powers.

5. Stand up and bless the Lord;
the Lord your God adore;
stand up and bless his glorious name,
henceforth forevermore.

"Hear Our Praises"
The Connections Praise Band

Mark 5:25-34

25 Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. 26 She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 for she said, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.” 29 Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, ‘Who touched me?’” 32 He looked all around to see who had done it. 33 But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”


"Get Rich Quick: Rich in Faith"
by Pastor Katie

When we think about riches, we might dream about fancy cars, clothes, or other material possessions wealth can afford us. Our newest sermon series explores what the Bible has to say about true wealth. What does it mean to be rich, not in silver or gold, but in kindness, generosity, faith, gratitude, and community?

"O, How I Love Jesus"
Torin Wright & Darlene Skinner
1. There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
it sounds like music in my ear,
the sweetest name on earth.

O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
because he first loved me!

2. It tells me of a Savior’s love,
who died to set me free;
it tells me of his precious blood,
the sinner’s perfect plea.

3. It tells of one whose loving heart
can feel my deepest woe;
who in each sorrow bears a part
that none can bear below.
Grant, O Lord, that what has been said with our lips we may believe in our hearts, and that what we believe in our hearts we may practice in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
