(Lyrics on back of bulletin)


Sent forth by God’s blessing, our true faith confessing,

the people of God from this dwelling take leave.

The service is ended, O now be extended

the fruits of our worship in all who believe.

The seed of His teaching, receptive souls reaching,

shall blossom in action for God and for all.

God’s grace did invite us, and love shall unite us

to work for God’s kingdom and answer His call.


With praise and thanksgiving to God ever living,

the tasks of our everyday life we will face.

Our faith ever sharing, in love ever caring,

embracing God’s children of each tribe and race.

With Your grace You feed us, with Your light now lead us;

unite us as one in this life that we share.

Then may all the living with praise and thanksgiving

give honor to Christ and that name which we bear.





Immediately following worship,

Mifflin Ave Church invites everyone to join us in the gym for church family brunch.


Everyone is welcome-

no matter who you are,

where you come from,

or why you are here.


We are Christ's people and this is Christ's place with its doors wide open.

If you are passing through, Godspeed.

If you are looking for a worship home, please stay with us.

We invite visitors to join with us, and most of all, to return often.






Pastor: Rev. Kelly Smith
