Still in need of more people willing to
commit to donate! Would you be willing to
donate blood to the American Red Cross if
Bell Church should sponsor a blood drive in
the future? Please see Sharon Norris to sign
up. We must have 35 potential donors to
proceed.
Leader:
This is the good news
which we have received,
in which we stand,
and by which we are saved:
People:
Christ died for our sins,
was buried,
was raised on the third day,
and appeared first to the women,
then to Peter and the Twelve,
and then to many faithful witnesses.
We believe Jesus is the Christ,
the Anointed One of God,
the firstborn of all creation,
the firstborn from the dead,
in whom all things hold together,
in whom the fullness of God
was pleased to dwell
by the power of the Spirit.
Christ is the head of the body, the
church, and by the blood of the cross
reconciles all things to God. Amen.
Easter people, raise your voices,
sounds of heaven in earth should ring.
Christ has brought us heaven’s choices;
heavenly music, let it ring.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Easter people, let us sing.
Fear of death can no more stop us
from our pressing here below.
For our Lord empowered us to
triumph over every foe.
Alleluia! Alleluia! On to victory now we go.
Every day to us is Easter,
with its resurrection song.
When in trouble move the faster
To our God who rights the wrong.
Alleluia! Alleluia! See the power of
heavenly throngs.

"The Church in the Wildwood"
is a song that was written by
Dr. William S. Pitts in 1857
following a coach ride that
stopped in Bradford, Iowa. It is
a song about a church built in a
valley near the town, though
the church was not actually
built until seven years later. In
the years since, the church has
become known simply as "The
Little Brown Church".
There’s a church in the valley by the
wildwood,
No lovelier spot in the dale;
No place is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the vale.
Come to the church in the wildwood,
Oh, come to the church in the dale,
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the vale.
Oh, come to the church in the wildwood,
To the trees where the wild flowers bloom;
Where the parting hymn will be chanted,
We will weep by the side of the tomb.
Come to the church in the wildwood,
Oh, come to the church in the dale,
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the vale.
How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning,
To list to the clear ringing bell;
Its tones so sweetly are calling,
Oh come to the church in the vale.
Come to the church in the wildwood,
Oh, come to the church in the dale,
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the vale.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
21 But
now, apart from law, the
righteousness of God has been disclosed,
and is attested by the law and the
prophets, 22 the righteousness of God
through faith in Jesus Christ[a] for all who
believe. For there is no distinction, 23 since
all have sinned and fall short of the glory of
God;
24 they
are now justified by his grace as a
gift, through the redemption that is in
Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a
sacrifice of atonement[b] by his blood,
effective through faith. He did this to show
his righteousness, because in his divine
forbearance he had passed over the sins
previously committed;
26 it
was to prove at the present time
that he himself is righteous and that he
justifies the one who has faith in
Jesus.[c] 27 Then what becomes of
boasting? It is excluded. By what law?
By that of works? No, but by the law of
faith.
28 For
we hold that a person is justified
by faith apart from works prescribed by
the law.
Just as I am, without one plea,
but that thy blood was shed
for me, and that thou bidst
me come to thee, O Lamb of
God, I come, I come.
Just as I am, and waiting not
to rid my soul of one dark
blot, to thee whose blood can
cleanse each spot, O Lamb of
God, I come, I come.
Just as I am, though tossed
about with many a conflict,
many a doubt, fightings and
fears within, without, O Lamb
of God, I come, I come.
Just as I am, thou wilt receive,
wilt welcome, pardon,
cleanse, relieve; because thy
promise I believe, O Lamb of
God, I come, I come.
