Christ Arose


*INVOCATION (the Lord’s Prayer)

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.

*PSALM FOR TODAY                                                                        Psalm 118:1-2, 14-18, 24 (NRSV) 

1     O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever!

2     Let Israel say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”

14     The Lord is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation.

15     There are glad songs of victory in the tents of the righteous:  “The right hand of the Lord does valiantly;

16     the right hand of the Lord is exalted; the right hand of the Lord does valiantly.”

17     I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the Lord.

18     The Lord has punished me severely, but he did not give me over to death.

24     This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. (bold/italic)



SCRIPTURE READING                                                                                       Acts 10:34-43 (NRSV)     

34 Then Peter began to speak to them: “I truly understand that God shows no partiality, 35 but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. 36 You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ—he is Lord of all. 37 That message spread throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John announced: 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. 39 We are witnesses to all that he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; 40 but God raised him on the third day and allowed him to appear, 41 not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, and who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. 42 He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one ordained by God as judge of the living and the dead. 43 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”



*DOXOLOGY (Sung together)                                                                                                    #572

           Praise God from whom all blessings flow;

           Praise him all creatures here below:

           Praise him above ye heavn’ly host:

           Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.    




*HYMN OF PRAYER                                                                                                                 # 177     Rejoice, the Lord is King


For God so loved the world

[All]: That all might have eternal life.


*HYMN OF PRAISE                                                                                                                     #  168  

The Day of Resurrection

SCRIPTURE TEXT                                                                                            Mark 16:1-8  (NRSV)

The Resurrection

Saturday evening, when the Sabbath ended, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome went out and purchased burial spices so they could anoint Jesus’ body. 2 Very early on Sunday morning,  just at sunrise, they went to the tomb. 3 On the way they were asking each other, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” 4 But as they arrived, they looked up and saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled aside.

5 When they entered the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a white robe sitting on the right side. The women were shocked, 6 but the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth,  who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body. 7 Now go and tell his disciples, including Peter, that Jesus is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there, just as he told you before he died.”

8 The women fled from the tomb, trembling and bewildered, and they said nothing to anyone because they were too frightened.
