Daylight saving time 2020 in Illinois began at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 8, and ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 1. All times are in Central Time.

Order of Worship Service: November 1st




This Sunday will be our last outdoor service for the winter.


Beginning on November 8th, we will move indoors, offering two services: the first at 9:30 a.m. and the second at 11:00 a.m. We ask that individuals wear a mask and practice social distancing in order to protect those most at-risk.


At this time, we will only provide childcare, for children 0-4 in Garrison Hall, during the 11 a.m. service.


For those not yet comfortable returning indoors to worship, we will offer an online option at 11:00 a.m. (and on delay).

SONG LYRICS:


How Great Thou Art


O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder 
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, 
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.


 Refrain:
 Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee; How great thou art! How great Thou art!
 Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee; How great Thou art! How great Thou art!


And when I think that God, His son not sparing, 
Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, 
He bled and died to take away my sin.
 Refrain


When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation 
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration, 
And there proclaim: my God, how great Thou art!
 Refrain




Blessed Be Your Name


Blessed be Your name in the land that is plentiful,
Where Your streams of abundance flow, blessed be Your name.
Blessed be Your name when I’m found in the desert place,
Tho’ I walk through the wilderness, blessed be Your name.
Every blessing You pour out I’ll turn back to praise.
When the darkness closes in, Lord, still I will say, 


 Refrain:
 Blessed be the name of the Lord, Blessed be Your name.
 Blessed be the name of the Lord, Blessed be Your glorious name!


Blessed be Your name when the sun’s shining down on me,
When the world’s all as it should be, blessed be Your name.
Blessed be Your name on the road marked with suffering,
Tho’ there’s pain in the offering, blessed be Your name.
Every blessing You pour out I’ll turn back to praise.
When the darkness closes in, Lord, still I will say, 
 Refrain


You give and take away, You give and take away;
My heart will choose to say, Lord, blessed be Your name.
 Refrain




Still (9:30 service)


Hide me now under Your wings. 
Cover me within Your mighty hand.


 Refrain:
 When the oceans rise and thunders roar, 
 I will soar with You above the storm;
 Father, You are King over the flood, 
 I will be still and know You are God.


Find rest, my soul, in Christ alone.
Know His power in quietness and trust.
 Refrain




Draw Me Close


Draw me close to You, never let me go.
I lay it all down again to hear You say that I’m Your friend.


You are my desire, no one else will do,
‘Cause nothing else could take Your place; to feel the warmth of Your embrace.
Help me find the way, bring me back to You.


 Refrain:
 You’re all I want, You’re all I ever needed.
 You’re all I want; help me know You are near.
