*HYMN 400 Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

1 Come, thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace;
streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it, mount of thy redeeming love.

2 Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help I'm come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God;
he, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood.

3 O to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love;
here's my heart, O take and seal it; seal it for thy courts above. 

WORDS: Robert Robinson, 1758 MUSIC: Wyeth’s Repository of Sacred Music, Part Second, 1813



I Keep Falling in Love with Him
I keep falling in love with him over and over and over and over again.
I keep falling in love with him over and over and over and over again.
He gets sweeter and sweeter as the days go by;
Oh, what a love between my Lord and I!
I keep falling in love with him over and over and over and over again.

Jesus Gave Her Water
Jesus gave her water that was not from the well.
Jesus gave her water that was not from the well.
She went away singing, came back bringing
Others to the water that was not from the well

Jesus still gives water that is not in the well;
Jesus still gives water that is not in the well.
To all who come believing,
And His Word receiving,
He gives the living water that is not in the well.

I Love That Man From Galilee
I love that man from Galilee
For He has done so very much for me
He has taken all my sins, placed the Holy Ghost within,
I love that man, that man from Galilee.

We Will Glorify
We will glorify the King of Kings, we will glorify the Lamb
We will glorify the Lord of Lords, who is the Great I Am                        

Lord Jehovah reigns in majesty, we will bow before His throne             
We will worship Him in righteousness, we will worship Him alone

Hallelujah to the King of kings, hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to the Lord of Lords, who is the great I Am.

There’s Something About That Name
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…there’s just something about that name.
Master, Savior, Jesus…like the fragrance after the rain.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…let all heaven and earth proclaim:
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there’s something about that name.

Hymn 380 There’s Within My Heart A Melody+

1 There’s within my heart a melody, Jesus whispers sweet and low:                  
Fear not, I am with thee, peace be still, in all of life’s ebb and flow.       
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know,
fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.

2 All my life was wrecked by sin and strife, 
discord filled my heart with pain; 
Jesus swept across the broken strings, 
stirred the slumbering chords again. 
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know,
fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.

3 Though sometimes he leads through waters deep, 
trials fall across the way, 
though sometimes the path seems rough and steep, 
see his footprints all the way.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know,
fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.

4 Feasting on the riches of his grace, 
resting neath his sheltering wing, 
always looking on his smiling face, 
that is why I shout and sing.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know,
fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.

5 Soon he's coming back to welcome me 
far beyond the starry sky; 
I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown; 
I shall reign with him on high.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, sweetest name I know,
fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go.

WORDS: Luther B. Bridgers, 1910 MUSIC: Luther B. Bridgers, 1910

“Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so,

PRAYER HYMN 600 Wonderful Words of Life+

1 Sing them over again to me, wonderful words of life; 
let me more of their beauty see, wonderful words of life; 
words of life and beauty teach me faith and duty.
Beautiful words, wonderful words, wonderful words of life.

all so freely given, wooing us to heaven.

offer pardon and peace to all, wonderful words of life;

WORDS: Philip Bliss, 1874 MUSIC: Philip Bliss, 1874


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, the power, and the glory, 

For ever and ever. Amen.

*HYMN OF SENDING FORTH 702 Sing with All the Saints in Glory+

1 Sing with all the saints in glory, sing the resurrection song! 
Death and sorrow, earth’s dark story, to the former days belong. 
All around the clouds are breaking, soon the storms of time shall cease; 
In God’s likeness we, awaking, know the everlasting peace.

2 O what glory, far exceeding all that eye has yet perceived! 
Holiest hearts, for ages pleading, never that full joy conceived. 
God has promised, Christ prepares it, There on high our welcome waits.
Every humble spirit shares it; Christ has passed th’eternal gates.

3 Life eternal! heaven rejoices: Jesus lives who once was dead. 
Join we now the deathless voices; child of God, lift up your head! 
Patriarchs from the distant ages, saints all longing for their heaven,
Prophets, psalmists, seers, and sages, all await the glory given.

4 Life eternal! O what wonders crowd on faith; what joy unknown, 
When, amidst earth's closing thunders, 
Saints shall stand before the throne! 
O to enter that bright portal, see that glowing firmament; 
Know, with thee, O God Immortal, “Jesus Christ whom thou has sent!”

WORDS: William J. Irons, 1873 MUSIC: Ludwig van Beethoven, 1824; arr. by Edward Hodges, 1864 set tune: Hymn to Joy

We give God thanks for this opportunity to worship together in-person in our sanctuary as well as online. Please wear your mask and greet each with a wave, an elbow or fist bump. Please maintain social distance and sit at either end or the middle of the pew.  In the pews we ask you to sit, in every other pew, spaced out as best you can. Seats are also available in the foyer and the fellowship hall if needed. Both have been set up with screens for the PowerPoint presentation and live video stream from the pulpit. We will continue to live stream the services on Twitter and YouTube for those who would like to continue to participate from home. 

The offering will be received in the baskets at the three entry points of the sanctuary. No bulletins will be handed out, everything you need will be on the screens. No need to call or email ahead for a place to worship, you are invited to the sanctuary any time for in-person worship. Come as you are!

Remember there are two ways you can watch our services. One is on by typing in the search bar: Miramar UMC and then you should see the service live streamed. If you subscribe to our service through you can set up reminders for the day before or 15 minutes before, whatever you like.
The other way to “gather” in virtual worship is through the Twitter service available by going to our website. Pass around the information so that others may join in worship by clicking on the Twitter bird icon on the home page. We will continue our 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. services (except when we have a fifth Sunday of the month 10:00 a.m. service.) If you lose the service for a few seconds do not worry it will probably come back, but if it is longer than a few seconds you might try clicking the refresh button in your browser window.  

Please email your prayer requests for uplifting on Sundays by sending them to It is best if you send them by Saturday NOON if possible.
Our church prayer meeting is online on Sundays at 7:30 p.m. and you may contact Marvia Aitken or Vinessa Edwards for the link.
This week, Monday through Thursday there will be someone in the church office from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. each day, and you may make an appointment to see the pastor at these or other times. Please remember to enter from the south entrance near the Pastor’s office. No other doors will be open for church business. The preschool is open but you should still come in by the south entrance because the north entrance from the parking lot must be dedicated for the little children of the preschool. Please let friends with preschool aged children know that they can enroll the children in our preschool.
