“Trust and Obey”


When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word, What a glo-ry He sheds on our way!  While we do His good will  He a-bides with us still, And with all who will trust and o-bey.   (Refrain)


Then in fel-low-ship sweet we will sit at His feet, Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;  What He says we will do, where He sends we will go—Nev-er fear, on-ly trust and o-bey.    (Refrain)


(Refrain): Trust and o-bey, for there’s no oth-er way To be hap-py in Je-sus, But to trust and o-bey.



“O God, Our Help in Ages Past”


O God, our help in a-ges past,  Our hope for years to come, Our shel-ter from the storm-y blast,  And our e-ter-nal home!


O God, our help in a-ges past,  Our hope for years to come, Be Thou our guide while life shall last,  And our e-ter-nal home.     A-men



“I Need Thee Every Hour”


I need Thee ev-‘ry hour, Most gra-cious Lord; No tender voice like Thine Can peace afford.   (Refrain)


I need Thee ev-‘ry hour, Teach me Thy will, And Thy rich prom-is-es   In me ful-fill.    (Refrain)


(Refrain): I need Thee, O I need Thee; Ev’-ry hour I need Thee!  O bless me now, my Sav-ior, I come to Thee.      A-men.




A Special Membership Meeting is called for today following Church Service to discuss the retention of the Church’s nonprofit sales tax exemption with the State of Maine and a proposed change to our Bylaws to address this
