My congregation is working on a theme of hospitality this month and considering September "Open House Month."

We do the same prayer hymn and benediction response each week for a month at a time. This month, we're also doing "Old-Timey (as in revival-era) Hymns" for our final hymn each week.

Sept. 14 Music
Early Service:

Medley of "Surely the Presence of the Lord" and "There's a Sweet, Sweet Spirit"

Late Service:
Anthem: "You Are My All in All/Fairest Lord Jesus" - arr. Shackley

Opening hymn: (Same Spirit medley as early service)

Prayer hymn: "My Faith Looks Up to Thee"

Closing hymn: "Precious Name"

Benediction response: "Blest Be the Tie that Binds"
