A Church With Only ONE In The Audience. For us, church is not a minister and a choir on the stage performing for spectators in the audience. There are no stars. We come together solely for the purpose of lifting up the Lord, the only One who is worthy. Our service is all–inclusive and your contribution is as vital as any in our sanctuary.

A Place For Fellowship.  Just as we look up to God for strength, we look out to one another for warmth and friendship. As much as we are about worshipping Him, we are also about supporting each other. We strive to be your real friend, to be there for you in times of trouble and confusion as well as to celebrate with you the joys of life. We have a full calendar of activities available to you – from deep–sea fishing to our family picnic and fall camp-out. You will meet friends who love to get together with people just like you.

A Place To Belong.  Today, our world is full of lost sheep - people who feel alone in a crowd. God does not want you to feel this way, and neither does Shawnee Worship Center. Just as Jesus opened His arms to you to bring you peace and safety, we open our arms to you. We welcome you to our fold, and you will be loved just as you are. Whether you are married, single, single again, with or without children, any age, gender or race, we have a place for you.
A family that cares, Pastor Bart Loyd and the families of SWC

    Bible Reading & Meditation: Psalm 118

    1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
        His faithful love endures forever.

    2 Let all Israel repeat:
        “His faithful love endures forever.”
    3 Let Aaron’s descendants, the priests, repeat:
        “His faithful love endures forever.”
    4 Let all who fear the Lord repeat:
        “His faithful love endures forever.”

    5 In my distress I prayed to the Lord,
        and the Lord answered me and set me free.
    6 The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear.
        What can mere people do to me?
    7 Yes, the Lord is for me; he will help me.
        I will look in triumph at those who hate me.
    8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord
        than to trust in people.
    9 It is better to take refuge in the Lord
        than to trust in princes.

    10 Though hostile nations surrounded me,
        I destroyed them all with the authority of the Lord.
    11 Yes, they surrounded and attacked me,
        but I destroyed them all with the authority of the Lord.
    12 They swarmed around me like bees;
        they blazed against me like a crackling fire.
        But I destroyed them all with the authority of the Lord.
    13 My enemies did their best to kill me,
        but the Lord rescued me.
    14 The Lord is my strength and my song;
        he has given me victory.
    15 Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly.
        The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things!
    16 The strong right arm of the Lord is raised in triumph.
        The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things!
    17 I will not die; instead, I will live
        to tell what the Lord has done.
    18 The Lord has punished me severely,
        but he did not let me die.

    19 Open for me the gates where the righteous enter,
        and I will go in and thank the Lord.
    20 These gates lead to the presence of the Lord,
        and the godly enter there.
    21 I thank you for answering my prayer
        and giving me victory!

    22 The stone that the builders rejected
        has now become the cornerstone.
    23 This is the Lord’s doing,
        and it is wonderful to see.
    24 This is the day the Lord has made.
        We will rejoice and be glad in it.
    25 Please, Lord, please save us.
        Please, Lord, please give us success.
    26 Bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord.
        We bless you from the house of the Lord.
    27 The Lord is God, shining upon us.
        Take the sacrifice and bind it with cords on the altar.
    28 You are my God, and I will praise you!
        You are my God, and I will exalt you!

    29 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
        His faithful love endures forever.
