Davin brings a message to us in
his special music during the Offertory -
"Living Hope."

How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation, I turned to heaven
And spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness, Your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished, the end is written
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Who could imagine so great a mercy?
What heart could fathom such boundless grace?
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame

The cross has spoken, I am forgivenThe King of kings calls me His own

Beautiful Savior, I'm Yours forever
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
Jesus, Yours is the victory, whoa!

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Jesus Christ, my living hope
Oh God, You are my living hope

Songwriters: Phil Wickham / Brian Mark Johnson

Pastor Matt Bailey brings the message in its entirety in the video on Facebook.
Whether you are a Facebook user or not,
you can still see the video.

God made the world PERFECT;
humanity caused the brokenness of the world we live in.

Holy Communion followed the message. 
The sanctuary was turned over to each of us
to receive Holy Communion 
and pray or respond
however we needed to do on this day!

Each person had the opportunity
to receive Holy Communion
at the center aisle
then go to the Chancel rail
to pray or return to their seats.

The world is watching the church!
The church must be a reflection of who God is
both in and outside the church!
Do we reflect a false image of God?

Several old tradition hymns were sung and
directed by Davin Hutchinson,
Minister of Music & Worship,
on this Sunday, but the service ended
with the one that says it all --
"I Surrender All"

 

As Pastor Matt Bailey closed the service,
he gave the Invitation for anyone
desiring to do so to become
members of the church!
Richard and Nina Webb came forward
and made the First United Methodist, Ennis,
their church home!

Welcome Richard and Nina!

Following the service and the welcoming
of the newest members,
all proceeded to the Family Life Center
for an old-fashioned Potluck Lunch welcoming
Pastor Matt Bailey and his family!

"Leaning on the Everlasting Arm"

 

Christen brought the Children's Sermon to the kiddos!
Her trick of the coin-flipping giving them the option of
Heads she wins; Tails they lose
brought the point that
we always win with Christ!

"Power in the Blood"

Christen Vick brought the message
"Live Up to His Calling"
basing her words on the scripture
Galatians 6:9

"Love people right where they are and as they are!"

We want to be known as the church that helps people! 
That is what we do and do day after day!
We do what our calling tells us to do!
