Open The Eyes of My Heart. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. Open the eyes of my heart. I want to see You. I want to see You. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. Open the eyes of my heart. I want to see You. I want to see You.
Please standby for the following announcements.
On Sunday, May 9, we will have our annual meeting of the Local Church Conference, immediately following the AM service. During that time, we will elect officers for the following year. Covenant and community members are eligible to vote.
We have decided to make a major change to our lineup of services. We are suspending Wednesday night church indefinitely. In the coming weeks, we will begin a transition from a formal service to flexible and more intimate small group meetings to try to facilitate a diverse set of needs in our church.
We could use more help with lawn care. If you are interested in helping out, please sign up or see Tony. The more people we have, the less frequently people have to cut.
Some tweaks to the website www.greenwoodwesleyan.comhave been made. It is now possible to download sermons, bulletins, and PowerPoint presentations, as well as check out the latest photos from our India trip
A new Facebook page, titled “Friends of Greenwood Wesleyan Church” has been created. It is a webpage that can be seen or edited by anybody. Send a request to join the page, and you can post prayer requests, photos, or anything you want.
1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. 6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. 8 Come and see the works of the LORD, the desolations he has brought on the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear, he burns the shields with fire.
10 "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
11 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
“And they were calling to one another ‘Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty. The whole earth is full of His Glory’”
-Isaiah 6:3 (NIV)

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,Save in the death of Christ, my God;All the vain things that charm me most,I sacrifice them to His blood
See, from His head, His hands, His feet,Sorrow and love flow mingled down;Did e’re such love and sorrow meet,Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
12The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 13For we were all baptized by[a] one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
14Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 16And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.
17If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19If they were all one part, where would the body be?
20As it is, there are many parts, but one body. 21The eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" And the head cannot say to the feet, "I don't need you!" 22On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor.
And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, 24while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
26If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. 27Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
8And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.
29Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? 31But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way
