Second Sunday of Easter

Invocation

 

Scripture: Acts 4:32-35

 

32 Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common.

33 With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.

34 There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold.

35 They laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.

 

“Hallelujah! What a Savior!”

Hymn #253

 

“Man of Sorow’s”-what a name

For the Son of God, who came

Ruined sinners to reclaim.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

 

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,

In my place condemned He stood-

Sealed my pardon with His blood.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

 

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;

Spotless Lamb of God was He.

Full atonement-can it be?

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

 

Lifted up was He to die;

“It is finished,” was His cry.,

Now in heav’n exalted high-

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

 

When He comes, our glorious King,

All His ransomed home to bring,

Then anew this song we’ll sing,

“Hallelujah! What a Savior!”

 

                                                            “There is a Fountain

Hymn #255

 

There is a fountain filled with blood  Drawn from Immanuel’s veins;And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,  Lose all their guilty stains:  Lose all their guilty stains,  Lose all their guilty stains;And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,  Lose all their guilty stains.

 

The dying thief rejoiced to see  That fountain in his day;And there may I, though vile as he,  Wash all my sins away:  Wash all my sins away,  Wash all my sins away;And there may I, though vile as he,  Wash all my sins away.

 

Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood  Shall never lose its power,Till all the ransomed Church of God  Be saved, to sin no more:  Be saved, to sin no more,  Be saved, to sin no more;Till all the ransomed Church of God,  Be saved to sin no more.

 

E’er since by faith I saw the stream  Thy flowing wounds supply,Redeeming love has been my theme,  And shall be till I die:  And shall be till I die,  And shall be till I die;Redeeming love has been my theme,  And shall be till I die.

 

When this poor lisping, stammering tongue  Lies silent in the grave,Then in a nobler, sweeter song,  I’ll sing Thy power to save:  I’ll sing Thy power to save,  I’ll sing Thy power to save;Then in a nobler, sweeter song,  I’ll sing Thy power to save.

Scripture: 1 John 1-2:2

 

1 We declare to you what was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the word of life—

2 this life was revealed, and we have seen it and testify to it, and declare to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was revealed to us—

3 we declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.

4 We are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.

5 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him there is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with him while we are walking in darkness, we lie and do not do what is true;

7 but if we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

 

1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;

2 and he is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

 

Offering

 

Doxology

Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts.

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen

 

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns

 

Scripture: John 20:19-31

 

19 When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you."

20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.

21 Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you."

22 When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.

23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."

24 But Thomas (who was called the Twin ), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.

25 So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord." But he said to them, "Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe."

26 A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you."

27 Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe."

28 Thomas answered him, "My Lord and my God!"

29 Jesus said to him, "Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe."

30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.

31 But these are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name.

 

“Build Your Kingdom”

 

Come set Your rule and reign

In our hearts again

Increase in us we pray

Unveil why we're made

Come set our hearts ablaze with hope

Like wildfire in our very souls

Holy Spirit, come invade us now

We are Your Church

And we need Your power

In us

We seek Your kingdom first

We hunger and we thirst

Refuse to waste our lives

For You're our joy and prize

To see the captive hearts released

The hurt, the sick, the poor at peace

We lay down our lives for Heaven's cause

We are Your church

And we pray reviveThis earth

Build Your Kingdom Here

Build Your kingdom here

Let the darkness fear

Show Your mighty hand

Heal our streets and land

Set Your church on fire

Win this nation LORD

Change the atmosphere

Build Your kingdom here

We pray

 

Unleash Your kingdom's power

Reaching the near and far

No force of hell can stop

Your beauty changing hearts

You made us for much more than this

Awake the kingdom seed in us

Fill us with the strength and love of Christ

We are Your church

Oh, and we are the hope

On earth

Build Your Kingdom Here

Build Your kingdom here

Let the darkness fear

Show Your mighty hand

Heal our streets and land

Set Your church on fire

Win this nation LORD

Change the atmosphere

Build Your kingdom here

We pray

 

“Living Hope”

 

How great the chasm that lay between us

How high the mountain I could not climb

In desperation, I turned to heaven

And spoke your name into the night

Then through the darkness

Your loving kindness

Tore through the shadows of my soul

The work is finished, the end is written

Jesus Christ, my living hope

 

Who could imagine so great a mercy?

What heart could fathom such boundless grace?

The God of ages stepped down from glory

To wear my sin and bear my shame

The cross has spoken, I am forgiven

The king of kings calls me His own

Beautiful savior, I'm yours forever

Jesus Christ, my living hope

 

Hallelujah, praise the one who set me free

Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me

You have broken every chain

There's salvation in your name

Jesus Christ, my living hope

 

Then came the morning that sealed the promise

Your buried body began to breathe

Out of the silence, the roaring lion

Declared the grave has no claim on me

 

Then came the morning that sealed the promise

Your buried body began to breathe

Out of the silence, the roaring lion

Declared the grave has no claim on me

Jesus, yours is the victory, whoa!

 

Hallelujah, praise the one who set me free

Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me

You have broken every chain

There's salvation in your name

Jesus Christ, my living hope

 

Scripture: Psalm 133

 

1 How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!

2 It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down over the collar of his robes.

3 It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. For there the Lord ordained his blessing, life forevermore.

 

Message: Pastor Ryan

“Unity”

 

Communion

 

The Communion Supper, instituted by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a sacrament, which proclaims His life, His sufferings, His sacrificial death and resurrection, and the hope of His coming again. It shows forth the Lord’s death until His return.  The Supper is a means of grace in which Christ is present by the Spirit.  It is to be received in reverent appreciation and gratefulness for the work of Christ. All those who are truly repentant, forsaking their sins, and believing in Christ for salvation are invited to participate in the death and resurrection of Christ. We come to the table that we may be renewed in life and salvation and be made one by the Spirit.

In unity with the Church, we confess our faith:

 

Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

 

Holy God,  We gather at this, your table, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who by your Spirit was anointed to preach good news to the poor, proclaim release to the captives, set at liberty those who are oppressed. Christ healed the sick, fed the hungry, ate with sinners, and established the new covenant for forgiveness of sins. We live in the hope of His coming again.  On the night in which He was betrayed, He took bread, gave thanks, broke the bread, gave it to His disciples, and said: “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me. Likewise, when the supper was over, he took the cup, gave thanks, gave it to His disciples, and said: “Drink from this, all of you, this is my blood of the new covenant, poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in remembrance of me.” Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.  And so, we gather as the Body of Christ to offer ourselves to you in praise and thanksgiving. Pour out your Holy Spirit on us and on these your gifts. Make them by the power of your Spirit to be for us the body and blood of Christ, that we may be for the world the Body of Christ, redeemed by His blood.  By your Spirit make us one in Christ, one with each other, and one in the ministry of Christ to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen. And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, let us pray:

 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen

 

“Among Us”

 

You'll find Me with the broken and the weak

In the spaces in between

You'll hear My voice cry out with those who weep

Only if you're listening


[Chorus]

Whatever you do for the least of these

You do it unto Me


[Verse 2]

You'll find Me with the ones without a voice

The forgotten and ignored

My blessing is on those who love the poor

'Til you open up the door


[Chorus]

Whatever you do for the least of these

You do it unto Me

Whatever you do for the least of these

You do it unto Me

 

[Bridge]

Hallelujah, hallelujah

He is among us, He is among us

Hallelujah, hallelujah

He is among us, He is among us

Hallelujah, hallelujah

He is among us, He is among us

Hallelujah, hallelujah

He is among us, He is among us


[Outro]

By this the world will know the Father's love

We will know the Father's love

 

 Benediction
