Prelude How Great Thou Art  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the lands. Many: Serve the Lord with gladness; come into his presence singing! One: Know that the Lord is God, it is he that he made us, and we are his. ALL: Give thanks to him and bless his name!

* Opening Hymn Morning Has Broken  Hymn #664 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
What is life without your love? Even as the days unfold, and we are grateful for friends, family and community, our blessings exceed our understanding. You are beside us, and yet you are also around the next corner, where we have not walked. Your presence surrounds and protects, your patience, waits. Our faith embraces us as sunlight on skin, felt yet unseen, a source of strength and comfort. We take so much for granted, especially your steadfast care . In our hearts we know you will always hear us and lift us up, but we need reminding to stop, be humble,and give thanks. We need to remember that with your grace comes a call to reach out, to help and embrace the separated and unloved. To demonstrate YOU in your world. So often, we simply forget. We take and do not give. Forgive us God, and create in us the transformation of the Cross; make us a light in every darkness and a joy for every heart. We are your Easter people, and we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon Hear the good news! In Christ, we are forgiven! In Christ, we have new life!
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us. Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.

* Singing Gloria Patri  Hymn #581

This Is My Father's World  Hymn #370 (all)

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Anthem He Is Exalted  Choir
