Birthday Church Service – Sample of Birthday Service Program

We decided to published a sample of a birthday service held in our church. This is because when we were planning for the birthday service, we had little hitches deciding what and what should come into the program. Birthday Church Service – Sample of Birthday Service Program.

This is actually the second time we are publishing a birthday service done in the church. The first one was a Birthday service by Jesus the Good News. It is more of a general birthday service which is celebrated with a Mass and at the end, the celebrant will have to read the popular; Birthday Prayer “You Hold My Life Tenderly”.



In case you didn’t find what you are looking for here, you may open the birthday church service by Jesus the Good News. You may like to follow their order of the program.

  1. Epistle — Romans 8: 12 – 17
  2. Hymn for Gradual – A & M 181

Hymn A&M 181 God moves in a mysterious way

  1. God moves in a mysterious way
    his wonders to perform:
    he plants his footsteps in the sea,
    and rides upon the storm.
  2. Deep in unfathomable mines,
    of never-failing skill,
    he treasures up his bright designs,
    and works his sovereign will.
  3. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
    the clouds ye so much dread
    are big with mercy, and shall break
    in blessings on your head.
  4. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
    but trust him for his grace;
    behind a frowning providence
    he hides a smiling face.
  5. His purposes will ripen fast,
    unfolding every hour:
    the bud may have a bitter taste,
    but sweet will be the flower.
  6. Blind unbelief is sure to err,
    and scan his work in vain;
    God is his own interpreter,
    and he will make it plain.

  1. Gospel — Matthew 21: 28 – 32 
  2. Hymn for Sermon S S & S 23

SS & S 23 To God be the glory! great things

  1. 1. To God be the glory! great things
    He hath done :
    So loved He the world that He gave us His Son ;
    Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
    And opened the Life-gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord ! praise the Lord !
Let the earth hear His voice !
Praise the Lord ! praise the Lord !
Let the people rejoice !
Oh, come to the Father, through Jesus the Son ;
And give Him the glory
great things He hath done!

2 O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believe the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

3 Great things He hath taught us, great
things He hath done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher,and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see

 

  1. Sermon – Ven. Ikenna Nwachukwu
  2. Special Number by the Students
  3. Nicene Creed, prayers & Peace



THE NICENE CREED (Congregation Stands)
All:
 We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one being with the Father
Through Him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation,
He came down from heaven;
by the power of the Holy Spirit
He became incarnate of the Virgin Mary
and was made man.
For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate:
He suffered death and was buried.
On the third day He rose again
in accordance with the scriptures;
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory,
to judge the living and the dead,
and His kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the Giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son
He is worshipped and glorified;
He has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one, Holy,
Catholic and Apostolic Church;
we acknowledge one baptism
for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen

Hymn A&M 300

  1. Be thou my guardian and my guide,
    and hear me when I call;
    let not my slippery footsteps slide,
    and hold me lest I fall.
  2. The world, the flesh, and Satan dwell
    around the path I tread;
    O save me from the snares of hell,
    thou Quickener of the dead.
  3. And if I tempted am to sin,
    and outward things are strong,
    do thou, O Lord, keep watch within,
    and save my soul from wrong.
  4. Still let me ever watch and pray,
    and feel that I am frail;
    that if the tempter cross my way,
    yet he may not prevail
