Order of Service

Prayer Focus of the Week: Pillar Okinawa

Scripture Reading: Colossians 1:24–29 (ESV)

24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, 26 the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. 27 To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. 29 For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.

Worship Songs:


Come and stand before your maker
Full of wonder full of fear
Come behold his power and glory
Yet with confidence draw near
For the one who holds the heavens
And commands the stars above
Is the God who bends to bless us
With an unrelenting love

Come and lift your hands and raise your voice
He is worthy of all praise
Sing the mercies of your king
And with trembling rejoice

We are children of the promise
The beloved of the Lord
Won with everlasting kindness
Bought with sacrificial blood
Bringing reconciliation
To a world that longs to know
The affections of a father
Who will never let them go

All our sickness all our sorrows
Jesus carried up the hill
He has walked this path before us
He is walking with us still
Turning tragedy to triumph
Turning agony to praise
There is blessing in the battle
So take heart and stand amazed

When you cry to him he hears your voice
He will wipe away your tears
In the midst of suffering
He will help you sing

Great Are You Lord

You give life You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope You restore ev’ry heart that is broken
And great are You Lord

It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only

And all the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry these bones will sing
Great are You Lord

Trailer Work Day – As we anticipate moving back inside next month, it’s time to dust off the trailer and take inventory! On Sunday, June 6th following service, we’ll be having a workday as we pull everything out of the trailer, take stock, and reorganize. We are asking all ministry leaders to participate and inviting anyone who would like to help. Lunch will be provided, please RSVP with Kristy Martinez at [email protected] so we can make sure we have enough food. We appreciate your help!

It’s Come Hungry Season! – It’s time once again to Come Hungry! These church-wide events are where we gather together for a potluck meal, play sports or board games, get to know each other, and just enjoy spending time together as the church. This is also an opportunity to invite friends and neighbors that may not be ready to attend a church service, but can be loved on in this very relaxed and welcoming environment.

Our kick-off Come Hungry will be on June 13th at Melba Bishop Park directly after service and will be picnic style–bring food for you and your family. In July we’ll transition to potlucks, and we’ll need hosts! Hosts will be responsible for choosing a theme for the potluck and providing a portion of the main meal, and you can either host at your home or at the park. Check out the dates below and mark your calendars. See Jacque Martin to sign up!

13th – Melba Bishop Park – Picnic
