As part of the spring sermon series, we are planning Outdoor Church. On Sabbath, May 20, we will worship outside and then eat together afterwards, picnic-style. Join the University Church family at 11:45am on WWU's Centennial Green (pictured above, behind Peterson Library). Please bring chairs* or blankets as well as a picnic lunch for your family, and some extra to share.

*A limited number of chairs will be made available by the church for those with mobility challenges. The area is wheelchair accessible.

For Outdoor Church:


#86, How Great Thou Art

1 - O Lord my God, 
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all
the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout
the universe displayed

Then sings my soul
My Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

2 - When through the woods
And forest glades I wander
And hear the birds
sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook
and feel the gentle breeze

3 - And when I think
That God His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die
I scarce can take it in
That on the Cross
My burden gladly bearing
He bled and died
to take away my sin.

4 - When Christ shall come
With shouts of acclamation
And take me home
What joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And then proclaim
“My God, how great Thou art!”


#294, Power in the Blood

1 - Would you be free
from the burden of sin?
There’s pow’r in the blood, 
pow’r in the blood;

Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

There is pow’r, pow’r, 
wonder working pow’r
In the blood of the Lamb;

There is pow’r, pow’r, 
wonder working pow’r
In the precious blood of the Lamb.

2 - Would you be free
from your passion and pride?
There’s pow’r in the blood, 
pow’r in the blood;

Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide?
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

3 - Would you do service for Jesus your King?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;

Would you live daily His praises to sing?
There’s wonderful power in the blood.


#338, Redeemed!

1 - Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it!
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;
Redeemed thro’ His infinite mercy,
His child, and forever, I am.

Redeemed, redeemed,
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;

Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it!
His child and forever I am.

2 - I think of my blessed Redeemer,
I think of Him all the day long;
I sing, for I cannot be silent;
His love is the theme of my song.

3 - I know I shall see in His beauty
The King in whose law I delight,
Who lovingly guardeth my footsteps,
And giveth me songs in the night.
