“Because of Your Love”  

As we come into Your presence 

We remember every blessing 

That You’ve poured out so freely from above 

Lifting gratitude and praises 

For compassion so amazing 

Lord, we’ve come to give You thanks for all You’ve done 


Because of Your love, we’re forgiven 

Because of Your love, our hearts are clean 

We lift You up with songs of freedom 

Forever we’re changed because of Your love 


Yeah, yeah 

Forever we’re changed because of Your love

Welcome and Prayer of Praise

We Lift You Up

Jesus You are strong to save 

There’s no battle You can’t win 

Stronger even than the grave 

We turn to You again (and) 


We lift You up, we lift You higher 

You deserve our highest praise 

We’ll sing it out, we’ll sing it louder 

Jesus Name above all names 


Only You have overcome 

Every trial this world can bring 

Only You defeated sin 

And died that we might live 


You conquered temptation, obedient to death 

You won our salvation, You are our righteousness

Ancient Words”

Holy words long preserved for our walk in this world. 

They resound with God’s own heart, 

O let the ancient words impart. 


Ancient words ever true, changing me, changing you, 

We have come with open hearts,  

O let the ancient words impart.

Prayers of the People and the Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.  Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Life of Columbia                                                    

Giving our Tithes and Offerings                     


My hope is built on nothing less, 

Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. 

I dare not trust the sweetest frame, 

But wholly trust in Jesus’ name. 



Christ alone, Cornerstone, 

Weak made strong, in the Savior’s love. 

Through the storm, 

He is Lord, Lord of all. 


When darkness seems to hide His face, 

I rest on His unchanging grace. 

In every high and stormy gale, 

My anchor holds within the veil. 


When He shall come with trumpet sound, 

Oh may I then in Him be found. 

Dressed in His righteousness alone, 

Faultless to stand before the throne.  


Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Prayer of Dedication
