Happy Day
Better Word
Great Are You Lord
Yes I Will

Happy Day

Verse 1

The greatest day in history
Death is beaten You have rescued me
Sing it out Jesus is alive
The empty cross the empty grave
Life eternal You have won the day
Shout it out Jesus is alive
He’s alive


And oh happy day happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day happy day
I’ll never be the same
Forever I am changed

Verse 2

When I stand in that place
Free at last meeting face to face
I am Yours Jesus You are mine
Endless joy perfect peace
Earthly pain finally will cease
Celebrate Jesus is alive
He’s alive


Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious way
That You have saved me
And oh what a glorious day
What a glorious name

Better Word

Verse 1

What can wash away the guilty stain
After all the wrong I’ve done
I’ve already tried a thousand ways
But it’s never been enough
What could be enough


Nothing but the blood
A better word was spoken
Oh I know it was
Nothing but the blood
Every curse was broken
Oh I know it was


Nothing but the blood
Nothing but the blood

Verse 2

And when I’m reminded of my shame
To the fountain I will run
Every failure covered now in grace
For the lamb has overcome
What can overcome


On that cross hallelujah
I left my shame where the nails were
Jesus Christ O Lamb of God
Be lifted higher forever

(back to top)

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

(back to top)

Yes I Will

Verse 1

I count on one thing
The same God that never fails
Will not fail me now
You won’t fail me now
In the waiting
The same God who’s never late
Is working all things out
You’re working all things out


Yes I will lift You high
In the lowest valley
Yes I will bless Your name
Yes I will sing for joy
When my heart is heavy
All my days yes I will


I choose to praise
To glorify glorify
The name of all names
That nothing can stand against


For all my days
Yes I will

Student Ministry Update June 2023

Summer is approaching rapidly! Here are some of our plans.

We have 2 seniors who are graduating this year: Ilse Zacher and Joshua Pagh. If you see them you can congratulate them! Our youth group will be recognizing them at a special youth group in the park on Tuesday, June 6th from 6:00-8:00 pm (usual youth group time). We’ll also have pizza and dessert. Please drop your students off and pick them up at the Leslie Grove Park entrance off Park Street.
We will also be recognizing our seniors with the rest of our church family in the service on Sunday, June 11th.

We just completed our 7-week study in the book of Daniel this last Tuesday. One of the main takeaways from our study is that God is the ultimate authority in heaven and earth. This is shown throughout Daniel and emphasized in Daniel 2:20-22 (NLT):

He said, “Praise the name of God forever and ever,
for he has all wisdom and power.
He controls the course of world events;
he removes kings and sets up other kings.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the scholars.
He reveals deep and mysterious things
and knows what lies hidden in darkness,
though he is surrounded by light.

In our next study we will be talking about World Religions. We asked the students to vote on some topics they thought would be valuable to them and this came out on top! Over a period of 5 weeks will be looking at Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism and comparing them to what we know about Christianity. We will finish up with a discussion on Christianity and why Jesus is unique and worthy of a personal relationship instead of seeing life with him merely as a better “religion.”

Once we finish World Religions, we will be discussing friendships, and that will bring us up to our Fall Kickoff on August 29th!

We are working on planning a couple of special activities for July and August. As we get things nailed down, we’ll let you know.

There is no youth group on July 4th!

It is such a privilege to spend time with your students! Their desire to know God more and their kindness to each other and to new students is such an encouragement!

If you have any questions, ideas, or concerns, you can send them my way!
