Pastor Bailey opened this special service with an Invocation.

After every name was called, the bell was rung,
by Juanita McBee, member of the Handbell Choir!

The "Spirit Song" is one of this church's favorite hymns of prayer!
 

Oh, let the Son of God enfold you with his Spirit and his love;

Let him fill your heart and satisfy your soul
Oh, let him have the things that hold you,

And his Spirit, like a dove,
will descend upon your life and make you whole.

Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs.

Oh, come and sing the song with gladness
as your hearts are filled with joy
Lift your hands in sweet surrender to his name

Oh, give him all your tears and sadness,
give him all your years of pain,
And you'll enter into life in Jesus' name.

Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs
Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs

 

Watch the video and hear the sermon, hear about the Saints, hear the music...
SING the Spirit Song, you will be singing it the rest of the week!
