Holding Nothing Back

 
I am chosen I am free
I am living for eternity
Free now forever
You pick me up turn me around
You set my feet on solid ground
Yours now forever

And nothing’s gonna hold me back
Nothing’s gonna hold me back
Nothing’s gonna hold me back

My chains fell off my heart was free
I’m alive to live for You
I’m alive to live for You
Amazing love how can it be
You gave everything for me
You gave everything for me

You’ve washed my sin and shame away
The slate is clean a brand new day
Free now forever
Now boldly I approach Your throne
To claim this crown through Christ my own
Yours now forever yeah

And I’m free to live free to give
Free to be
I’m free to love You

 

Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep my faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sov’reign hand will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Saviour
 
 
 

The Apostle’s Creed:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
 
And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;*
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic** church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
 
 
 
 
 

SCRIPTURE: John 1: 43-51

 
Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael
43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.”
 
44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
 
46 “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked.
“Come and see,” said Philip.
 
47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.”
 
48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked.
 
Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.”
 
49 Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel.”
 
50 Jesus said, “You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.” 51 He then added, “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’ the Son of Man.”

Holy Communion

In the United Methodist Church, we believe that this is not River City’s table, and this is not the United Methodist Church’s table. All who are able to confess their need of God in any way are welcome to receive Holy Communion.
 
 
 

The Lord’s Prayer: 

 
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and
the glory, forever. Amen
