Prelude His Name Is Life  Alex Danson

Call to Worship (Responsive)
ONE: With Mary, whose glad tidings signaled hope and summoned joy, we proclaim:
ALL: We have seen the Lord!
ONE: With the disciples, whom Jesus greeted with peace and freed from fear, we declare:
ALL: We have seen the Lord!
ONE: Behold! The risen Lord is in our midst!
ALL: Let us worship God!

Thanksgiving for Baptism (Responsive) Rene Myers
The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give our thanks and praise.

O Lord our God, we give you thanks
for the new life you raise up in us
through the mystery of our baptism¢

Opening Hymn Jesus Christ is Risen Today (rec. 4/16/16)  Hymn #232

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (Responsive) Rene Myers
ONE: Through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our merciful God has given us living hope that we, too, may share in new and abundant life. Yet, we do not always live as an Easter people. Trusting that God will transform our hearts, let us confess our tendency to cling to old ways of living rather than embracing the gift of new life.

ALL: Risen Lord,
you have breathed the Spirit upon us, and sent us forth to testify to what we have heard and seen. Yet we resist this calling, huddling behind locked doors rather than stepping out with confidence. We yearn for moreŸ

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Forgiveness (Responsive) Rene Myers
ONE: Let your hearts be glad and your souls rejoice! For the One who raised Jesus from the dead does not abandon us to the grave; the One who sent Jesus into the world teaches us the way that leads to life. Know that you are forgiven and be at peace.

ALL: In the name of the risen Christ we are forgiven. Alleluia! Amen! 4/15/2020

Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

Anthem He Is Risen Alleluia (rec. 3/31/13)  Choir

Prayer for Illumination (Responsive) Rene Myers

ALL: Amen.
