MORNING WORSHIP
First Baptist Church
Savannah, Georgia
PREPARATION FOR WORSHIP
"What has helped God's people deal with discouragement since the beginning is the knowledge that we are not alone.
We follow in the footsteps of people from the earliest biblical times who were unsure of what the future held for them.
We follow in the footsteps of saints who along the way chose to trust God anyway.
We follow a God who does not abandon us in times of trouble.
When we follow the path of staying focused on Jesus Christ our savior,
we are able to see the joy in life despite the suffering."
- David E. Gray, Feasting on the Word WE PRAISE God

*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
We, as the body of First Baptist Church, Savannah, Georgia, covenant together to seek:
GOD'S HEART, through active participation in worship, individual and congregational Bible study,
and a life of personal and corporate prayer.
IN COMMUNITY, creating an atmosphere of welcome where all persons are accepted and respected,
engaging each other in a celebration of all life, strengthening the unity of the church
with honest and positive dialogue, and cultivating the next generation of children and youth
through programs and participation.
We embrace OUR CALLING, with a commitment to undergird the church
through a process of discerning our gifts, abilities, and resources
and exercising them as Christian stewards, support efforts in outreach and mission
through active participation, and stand with the poor and powerless on issues of social justice.

ANTHEM Cantique de Jean Racine Men of the Choir
Word of God from on high, our hope and expectation,
The eternal radiance of heaven and the earth,
We call to thee for mercy.
Dear Savior, guard us with thy watchful eye!
Pour down on us the flames of thy grace strong and mighty, The powers of death fell at thy sounding voice.
Our slumbering souls awake, in languish repining,
That we may walk in the light of thy law.
0 Christ, grant us thy favor, thy flock, true and faithful, VVho gather here to adore thy great name,
Attend the praise we offer thy glory everlasting.
Receive our gifts we return to thy hand!
