21/11/2021 Morning worship – 126th corps anniversary

Today as we celebrated 126 years of the Salvation Army in Bellshill, our worship was led by Major David Ryder (R).

The band provided the call to worship by playing ‘Faithful God’.

During worship the band played Paul Sharman’s Everlasting Hope, which features the hymn tune Great Is Thy Faithfulness, and reminds us that

𝘗𝘢𝘳𝘥𝘰𝘯 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘴𝘪𝘯 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘢 𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘶𝘳𝘦𝘵𝘩,

𝘉𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘦, 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘴𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘦𝘴𝘪𝘥𝘦.

Major David reminded us that miracles will always follow, when we step out in active faith, and then challenged us by asking ‘How strong is your faith today?’. We celebrate the past, but now look forward because the past is behind us, and we acknowledge that we can be strong and courageous because we know our God is with us.

At the conclusion of worship we played the tune “I’ll Go in the Strength” which we associate with these words.

We give thanks to God for the legacy left by so many committed people whose ministry and influence throughout the last 126 years, has transformed the lives of those in our community. We are thankful that our corps is still at the heart of the Bellshill community, and pray for the future of our corps, as we continue to bring others into a relationship with God.
