ORDER OF WORSHIP


Prelude

Welcome

Call to Worship

Opening Song-“That Easter Day with Joy Was Bright”
That Easter day with joy was bright,
the sun shone out with fairer light,
when, to their longing eyes restored,
the glad apostles saw their Lord.

His risen flesh with radiance glowed;
his wounded hands and feet he showed;
those scars their solemn witness gave
that Christ was risen from the grave.

O Jesus, strong in gentleness,
come now yourself, our hearts possess,
that we may give you all our days
the tribute of our grateful praise.

Come, risen Christ, with us abide
in this our joyful Eastertide;
your own redeemed forever shield
from every weapon death can wield.

Call to Confession

Prayer of Confession
Three in one God, we know that we never get it all right.
We wander off from time to time forgetting that you are keeping watch.
For those times when we have ignored your presence, tried to run away even,
forgive us.
For those times when we have forgotten your eternal promise,
forgive us.
For those times when we have not listened to that small voice within,
forgive us.
We come today seeking your forgiveness, your reassurance
and companionship once more.
Amen.

Assurance of Pardon

"Glory to God"
Glory to God, whose goodness shines on me,
and to the Son, whose grace has pardoned me
and to the Spirit, whose love has set me free.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Amen.
World without end, without end. Amen.
World without end, without end. Amen.
World without end, without end. Amen.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Amen.

Passing of the Peace

Offering & Prayer of Dedication

Song-“Sweet, Sweet Spirit”
There's a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place,
And I know that it's the Spirit of the Lord;
There are sweet expressions on each face,
And I know they feel the presence of the Lord.

Sweet Holy Spirit, Sweet heavenly Dove,
Stay right here with us, filling us with Your love.
And for these blessings we lift our hearts in praise;
Without a doubt we'll know that we have been revived,
When we shall leave this place.

Children’s Time

Scripture: Luke 24:13-35

Sermon

Litany

Prayers of the People

Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours,
now and forever.
Amen.

Closing Song-“Surely the Presence of the Lord”
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place,
I can feel His mighty power and His grace.
I can hear the brush of angel's wings
I see glory on each face;
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.
