9:30 am The Gathering Lyrics

Evidence

All throughout my history
Your faithfulness has walked beside me
The winter storms made way for spring
In every season, from where I’m standing
I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life
Help me remember when I’m weak
Fear may come but fear will leave
You lead my heart to victory
You are my strength and You always will be
I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life
See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh Jesus
See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh Jesus
I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life
I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life
Why should I fear
The evidence is here
Why should I fear
The evidence is here

My Jesus

Are you past the point of weary?
Is your burden weighin’ heavy?
Is it all too much to carry?
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
Do you feel that empty feeling?
‘Cause shame’s done all its stealin’
And you’re desperate for some healin’
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Amen
Amen

Who can wipe away the tears
From broken dreams and wasted years
And tell the past to disappear? Oh
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And all the wrong turns that you would
Go and undo if you could
Who can work it all for your good
Let me tell you about my Jesus

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Amen
Amen, Amen

Who would take my cross to Calvary?
Pay the price for all my guilty?
Who would care that much about me?
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus, oh

He makes a way where there ain’t no way
Rises up from an empty grave
Ain’t no sinner that He can’t save
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
His love is strong and His grace is free
And the good news is I know that He
Can do for you what He’s done for me
Let me tell you ’bout my Jesus
And let my Jesus change your life

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, amen
Amen
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Let my Jesus change your life

Psalm 34 (Taste and See)

I sought the Lord
And He answered me
And delivered me
From every fear

Those who look on Him
Are radiant
They’ll never be ashamed
They’ll never be ashamed

This poor man cried
And the Lord heard me
And saved me from
My enemies

The Son of God
Surrounds His saints
He will deliver them
He will deliver them

Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever

Oh, taste and see
That the Lord is good
Oh, bless us here
Who hides in Him

Oh, fear the Lord
Oh, all you saints
He’ll give you everything
He’ll give you everything

Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever

Magnify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name together (lift up His name together)
Glorify the Lord with me
Come exalt His name forever (lift up His name forever)

Welcome
Rev. Lance Marshall, Co-Pastor

Prelude: “O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing”
Jason D. Payne, arranger
Peggy Graff, organist

*Call to Worship
One: Great is the Lord!
All: God’s greatness is beyond our understanding.
One: Yet God has revealed God’s self in Jesus Christ.
All: Through Jesus we have come to know the absolute love of God.
One: Lift up your hearts and praise the Lord!
All: May God continue to bless God’s people with peace. AMEN.

*Hymn 64: “Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty”
1. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

2. Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
perfect in power, in love and purity.

4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity.

*Affirmation of Faith 883
We are not alone, we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.Thanks be to God. Amen.

*Gloria Patri 70
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was
in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Amen.

McCall Marie Mays, daughter of Teighlor and Marshall Mays

Baptismal Hymn 191: “Jesus Loves Me” (vs. 1)
1. Jesus loves me! This I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to him belong;
they are weak, but he is strong.

Refrain:
Yes, Jesus loves me! Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me! The Bible tells me so.

Congregational Response
With God’s help we will so order our lives after the example
of Christ that Benjamin Casey and McCall Marie, surrounded by
steadfast love, may be established in the faith, and confirmed
and strengthened in the way that leads to life eternal.

“Mister Mark” Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries

*Hymn 593: “Here I Am, Lord”
1. I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Refrain:
Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

2. I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne my people’s pain.
I have wept for love of them.
They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my word to them.
Whom shall I send?

Refrain:
Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

3. I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them.
My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give my life to them.
Whom shall I send?

Refrain:
Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

Veneration

By | May-12-2021 | Sanctuary, Senior Pastor, Worship, Worship, Z - Front Page

This Sunday our theme is “Veneration” and our scripture is from Matthew 25, the Parable of the Last Judgment. Perhaps of all the teachings of Jesus, this parable is the clearest about how we are to live and treat one another and at the same time one of the most challenging. It shows us how to venerate Jesus through the way that we live and serve.

Sundays | 11:11 am | Live Stream
Rev. Tom McDermott

We love laughter and no-holds-barred messages that question the answers and unmask the illusions as we search for the next chapter together. This is 55 minutes of authentic storytelling, great coffee, and meaningful conversation — with the music of Brad Thompson (Fort Worth Star Telegram’s “Best Local Musician”) and the Revolution Band doing some of your favorite pop, classic rock, and acoustic songs.

We’re passionately inclusive here at eleven:eleven, whether you identify as LGBTQ+ or straight, conservative or liberal, Christian or agnostic, young or old — or anywhere in between and beyond. We’re casual, “come as you wish,” non–traditional, and always curious about kindness, justice, our stories, Jesus’ life — and how to do our lives better.

Here’s your invitation to reconnect your spirit without disconnecting your mind. We believe in the universal love of God and your next adventure. Join this growing community and become part of our story — and let’s see where it takes us! #1111FUMCFW
