Michael, row the boat ashore, Al – le – lu – ia!

Repeat

Sister, help to trim the sails, Alleluia!
Sister, help to trim the sails, Alleluia!

River Jordan is chilly and cold, Alleluia!
Chills the body, but not the soul,  Alleluia!

River Jordan is deep and wide, Alleluia!
Milk and honey on the other side, Alleluia!

Michael’s boat is a music boat, Alleluia!
Michael’s boat is a music boat, Alleluia!

Michael, row the boat ashore, Alleluia!
Michael, row the boat ashore, Alleluia!

REPEAT

“We Are One In The Spirit”
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord
And we pray that our unity will one day be restored
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
Yeah they’ll know we are Christians by our love

We will work with each other, we will work side by side
We will work with each other, we will work side by side
And we’ll guard each man’s dignity and save each man’s pride
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
Yeah, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

“Kickin’ Sunshine”  – Jominga!

Opening Song

“We Have Come”
Here we stand this morning,
ev’ryone is family.
Brothers, sisters, we have come.
Hearts and minds are open,
voices sing God’s glory,
working wonders in our lives.

(CHORUS):
We have come to be together,
We have come to be renewed.
We have come to be a light in the world.
We have come to stand united,
We have come to stand in truth.
We have come to stand in the presence of God.

Look around, these faces filled with love,
God’s light is Spirit shining in our eyes.
Through these doors, hearts rising,
in this room, arms opening, all who seek are welcome here:

CHORUS – 2 Times through

Divine Love, through me,

Closing Song

“The Peace Song”
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as Creator, family all are we
Let us walk with each other in perfect unity
Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every breath I take
let this be my joyful vow
to take each moment and live
each moment in peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me

Prayer for Protection

The light of God surrounds us
I AM the light of God
The love of God enfolds us
I AM the love of God
The power of God protects us
I AM the power of God
The presence of God watches over us
I AM the presence of God
Wherever God is I AM

 
God goes with you and before you in all that you do, making sure, safe, and smooth your way!

FAQ’s & Guidelines

Below are answers to your questions. Please know that the requests made below are based in sound
public health protocols and guidelines. Also, by living within these guidelines, we live into what it truly
means to “love our neighbor as ourselves.”

How will I know where and how to park?

Volunteers will guide you to a parking space. Parking will be configured differently than usual to allow
for appropriate physical distancing and line of sight.

How will I hear and participate in the service?

Rev. Debra, Nina Swanson, and those participating in the service will be outside near the portico. The sound will be amplified, but it will also be broadcast on AM 1250 station via a transmitter. You can just dial
in! The order of service is available on this page.

Will we sing?

If you are in your vehicle with your windows up, sing to your heart’s content! If you sit outside and choose to sing, please wear a mask and sit at a distance from others.

Must I wear a mask?

We ask that you wear a mask when you are outside your vehicle. Also, wear a mask if you are speaking to people through your car window. If you do not have a mask or forgot yours, we will provide one.

What about leaving my vehicle?

The safest way to gather is for all of us to remain in our vehicles. However, you may also sit outside in a lawn chair if you wear a mask and remain at least 6 feet from other congregants, and at least 18 feet
from the musician and speaker. If you have a portable AM radio, this might be an opportunity to use it!

What about rain?

We will not gather in rainy weather. You will receive an email if the service is cancelled. A cancellation will also be posted on social media.

Will the building be open?

One set of bathrooms will be open and we will observe a “two in and two out” protocol. The rest of the building will be closed.

In summary:

• Staying in your vehicle is encouraged
• If outside your vehicle, wear a mask or face shield and remain at least 6 feet from others and 18 feet from the minister and musician.
• Singing is best in your vehicle only. If your windows are down, wear a mask as you sing.
• Wear a mask when speaking through your open car window
• Only run your engine if necessary for comfort.
