Worship for Sunday, September 20

This Sunday, we’re happy to be able to host two opportunities for worship: online and outdoors. Both worship services will start at 9:30am.

Outdoor Service

Welcome to Friendship’s Sunday worship service! This morning’s worship service will start at 9:30am outdoors in the parking lot. Bring a chair and whatever you may need to be comfortable.

Come Now Is The Time To Worship

Come, now is the time to worship
Come, now is the time to give your heart
Come, just as you are to worship
Come, just as you are before your God, come
Verse 1
One day every tongue will confess you are God
One day every knee will bow
Still the greatest treasure remains
For those who gladly choose you now

Call to Worship

10,000 Reasons

Bless the Lord O my soul, O my soul
Worship his holy name
Sing like never before, O my soul
I’ll worship your holy name
Verse 1
The sun comes up it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes
Verse 2
You’re rich in love and you’re slow to anger
Your name is great and your heart is kind
For all your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find
Verse 3
And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore



Verse 1
You are here moving in our midst
I worship you, I worship you
You are here working in this place
I worship you, I worship you
You are way maker miracle worker
Promise keeper light in the darkness
My God, that is who you are
Verse 2
You are here touching every heart
I worship you, I worship you
You are here healing every heart
I worship you, I worship you
Verse 3
You are here turning lives around
I worship you, I worship you
You are here mending every heart
I worship you, I worship you
Even when I don’t see it you’re working
Even when I don’t feel it you’re working
You never stop, you never stop working
You never stop, you never stop working

Message: We Are Ready and Able to Adapt

Acts 6:1-7

Build Your Kingdom Here

Verse 1
Come set your rule and reign, in our hearts again
Increase in us we pray, unveil why we’re made
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls
Holy Spirit, come invade us now
We are your church, we need your power in us
Verse 2
We seek your kingdom first
We hunger and we thirst
Refuse to waste our lives
For you’re our joy and prize
To see the captive hearts released
The hurt, the sick, the poor at peace
We lay down our lives for heaven’s cause
We are your church, we pray revive this earth
Build your kingdom here, let the darkness fear
Show your mighty hand, heal our streets and land
Set your church on fire, win this nation back
Change the atmosphere, build your kingdom here
We pray
Verse 3
Unleash your kingdom’s power
Reaching the near and far
No force of hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts
You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ
We are your church, we are the hope on earth


Song of Hope

Verse 1
May the God of hope go with us every day
Filling all our lives with love and joy and peace
May the God of justice speed us on our way
Bringing light and hope to every land and race
Praying let us work for peace
Singing share our joy with all
Working for a world that’s new
Faithful when we hear God’s call
Verse 2
God will be our shepherd as we go our way
And will not forsake us when we go astray
Even though the load of life is hard to bear
We must not forget that God is always there

The Elders will be available for prayer after the service by the main doors to the church.
