Note for visitors to this website:

If you are using Safari, Google, or Google Chrome as a browser, you might notice that Google has started adding to any organizational website which does not use SSL, an expensive security feature,  a "not secure" note in these organizations website address lines.  They have tried to force every organization to go to SSL according to the folks who host our site.  (Firefox and Yahoo search engines does not do this).

But because our site does not sell, use email, or advertise, and because we are an informational and organizational website only, our site is very secure. 

Here is an example of another strictly organizational website that comes up "not secure."  It is a historical website that gives information about the early Baptist history in Wales.  If you click on the site (below) it will also come up in your address line as "not secure," which we know, of course, is not true; it is a very secure website:

"To God Be the Glory" was the hymn used to open every Evening Worship Service, broadcast live on WXRI-FM, from the South Norfolk Baptist Church auditorium.

 

Here is "To God Be the Glory," sung on the 50th anniversary of "Songs of Praise," the oldest Christian music program broadcast on the BBC.

"Lord, for the Years" a Hymn by Michael Baughen, sung by the Chapel Choir of Christ's Hospital, England, recorded by the BBC.

About Christ's Hospital, one of the oldest boarding schools in England.....In 1552, the young King Edward VI responded to an impassioned sermon on the needs of London’s poor, and summoned the preacher, the Bishop of London, to talk more about this pressing situation. It was suggested that Edward should write to the Lord Mayor of London, to set in motion charitable measures to help the poor.

Christ’s Hospital was consequently founded in the old buildings vacated by the Grey Friars in Newgate Street, London and provided food, clothing, lodging and learning for fatherless children and other poor men’s children. The children were not only cared for but prepared for future careers. Money for such reform was raised by the City of London. The Church, businesses and householders in London were asked for donations. Governors were elected to serve the school and in November 1552, Christ’s Hospital opened its doors to 380 pupils and within a year, the number had increased to over 500.


King Edward VI became patron and founder and a Royal Charter was signed to this effect by Edward just eleven days before his death in 1553.

"Lord, for the Years"


1 Lord, for the years your love has kept and guided,
urged and inspired us, cheered us on our way,
sought us and saved us, pardoned and provided:
Lord of the years, we bring our thanks today.

2 Lord, for that word, the word of life which fires us,
speaks to our hearts and sets our souls ablaze,
teaches and trains, rebukes us and inspires us:
Lord of the word, receive Your people's praise.

3 Lord, for our land in this our generation,
spirits oppressed by pleasure, wealth and care:
for young and old, for commonwealth and nation,
Lord of our land, be pleased to hear our prayer.

4 Lord, for our world when we disown and doubt him,
loveless in strength, and comfortless in pain,
hungry and helpless, lost indeed without him:
Lord of the world, we pray that Christ may reign.

5 Lord for ourselves; in living power remake us -
self on the cross and Christ upon the throne,
past put behind us, for the future take us:
Lord of our lives, to live for Christ alone.
