and to present ourselves for pardon and power Amen.

The Fellowship of the Word 

*Hymn               "Peace in the Valley"             by Thomas A. Dorsey
There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There’ll be no sadness, no sorrow
no trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me

*Closing Hymn                   “Can’t Nobody Do Me Like Jesus”     
                                                                               by Andraé Crouch 

 Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
Can’t nobody do me like the Lord
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
He’s my friend
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
Can’t nobody do me like the Lord
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
He’s my friend
Healed my body, told me to run
Healed my body, told me to run
Healed my body, told me to run
He’s my friend
Picked me up, turned me around
Picked me up, turned me around
Picked me up, turned me around
He’s my friend
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
Can’t nobody do me like the Lord
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
He’s my friend


* Benediction
