Prelude Jesus Is Lord Of All  Praise Band

* Call to Worship * Call to Worship One: I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness O my God; Many: We come to you, our Redeemer. One: My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you ALL: Let all hear of your love and faithfulness!

* Opening Hymn Come, Christans Join to Sing  Hymn #267 (all)

Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
God, our Creator and Protector, you gave us your Son to walk among us and teach us the true meaning of love for one another. It is a wonder to us that we who are so small should deserve this gift. Yet we are made in your image, and you are the heart of our hearts. It is too wonderful to imagine! Forgive us when we ignore the presence of the Spirit. Forgive us when we are unkind. Forgive our selfishness. Open our eyes to the glory of your Truth, so we may be always your Easter people. We pray in the name of the Christ, Amen.

(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.
