CALL TO WORSHIP
Allelujah! Christ is Risen!
Christ is Risen Indeed!
The Stone has been rolled away-our Lord has been resurrected-
Darkness has been vanquished! The brilliant light of hope has come!
This is the day that the Lord has made – We will rejoice and be glad in it!
The Lord is our strength, our song, and our salvation!
HYMN #232 “Jesus Christ Is Risen Today!” (Click HERE for Hymn Words)
PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
Gracious Father, you sent your Son to die and be resurrected in order that death might be brought to an end and that we might live a new life in Christ. Yet we confess that we too often have chosen to remain captive to doubt and fear in ways that lead to separation from you. By our thoughts, words, and action, we have not loved you with our whole heart, and we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves, and we have not savored your abounding love for us. Father, Forgive us.
ASSURANCE OF PARDON
The proof of God’s amazing love is this: Christ Died for Us! Christ Rose for us! Christ reigns in power for us! Christ prays for Us! Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old life has gone: a new life has begun! In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.
