* Call to Worship
One: We gather to give thanks for God

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

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We come to you, O God, filled with the glory of Easter, in awe at the gift that has been given. Our lives were forever changed by the victory of the Cross and our personal relationship with you. We are humbled, yet emboldened in the assurance that light is always the victor in every aspect of living. Around us, your Creation casts its spell of beauty and sustenance, and you have called us to be stewards of your works. We seek to do your will, O Lord, and care for all that gives life. Yet, in our lesser nature, we plunder both people and wilderness. We become hardened to suffering, and greedy for plunder. We wonder then, who are we? Remind us, we pray! Heal and restore us; our souls truly cry out to thrive as your Easter people, filled with love, caring, renewal and the understanding that all of us are equally loved by you and called to prepare the Way, in flesh and earth, for every breath of life. Hear our prayer, O Lord, in Jesus

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
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.

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

Anthem You Raise Me Up  Choir

Prayer for Illumination
Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. Amen
