Prelude Special Music  Praise Band

* Call to Worship One: We gather to give thanks for God’s love and grace; Many: Through Christ we are forgiven and renewed. One: We come to sing praise for the beauty of God’s world; ALL: Let us shout for joy that all may hear and receive this greatest gift!

* 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’ 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.

Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.

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