Friendly Word Newsletter Sun 19 November 2023

Hello folks,

These lyrics from the Worship Song : He will hold me fast, Matthew Sherman Merker

He will hold me fast, For my Savior loves me so, He will hold me fast

For my life He bled and died, Christ will hold me fast

Justice has been satisfied, He will hold me fast

Raised with Him to endless life, He will hold me fast

Till our faith is turned to sight, When he comes at last

He will hold me fast, For my Savior loves me so, He will hold me fast

As we go about the next few days until we gather again on Sunday, He will hold you fast!

Please join us as 10am and 6pm to Worship and Praise the Author of our lives.

See how you can be a part of our Church Community and family by checking out the weekly newsletter attached.

God Bless,
