Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 118:14-29


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.

19 Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord.

20 This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous shall enter through it.

21 I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation.

22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.

23 This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

24 This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

25 Save us, we beseech you, O Lord! O Lord, we beseech you, give us success!

26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord.

27 The Lord is God, and he has given us light. Bind the festal procession with branches, up to the horns of the altar.

28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God, I will extol you.

29 O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.


“He Lives”

Hymn #262


I serve a risen Savior; He’s in the world today.

I know that He is living, whatever men may say.

I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer;

And just the time I need Him, He’s always near,


He lives, He lives!​

Christ Jesus lives today!​

He walks with me and talks with me​

Along life’s narrow way.​

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!​

You ask me how I know He lives?​

He lives within my heart!​


In all the world around me,​

I see His loving care;​

And tho’ my heart grows weary,​

I never will despair.​

I know that He is leading​

Thro’ all the stormy blast;​

The day of His appearing​

will come at last.​


He lives, He lives!​

Christ Jesus lives today!​

He walks with me and talks with me​

Along life’s narrow way.​

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!​

You ask me how I know He lives?​

He lives within my heart!​


Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian!​

Lift up your voice and sing​

Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ,​

the King!​

The Hope of all who seek Him,​

The Help of all who find,​

None other is so loving,​

So good and kind.​


He lives, He lives!​

Christ Jesus lives today!​

He walks with me and talks with me​

Along life’s narrow way.​

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!​

You ask me how I know He lives?​

He lives within my heart!​



“Blessed be the Lord God Almighty”


Father in heaven, how we love You;​

We lift Your name in all the earth.​

May Your kingdom be established​

in our praises,​

As Your people declare ​

Your mighty works.​

Blessed be the Lord God Almighty,​

Who was, and is and is to come.​

Blessed be the Lord God Almighty,​

Who reigns forevermore.​


“Crown Him with Many Crowns”

Hymn #272


Crown Him with many crowns,

The Lamb upon His throne.

Hark! How the heav’nly anthem drowns

All music but its own!

Awake, my soul, and sing

Of Him who died for thee,

And hail Him as thy matchless King

Thro’ all eternity.


Crown Him the Lord of Love!

Behold His hands and side-

Rich wounds, yet visible above,

In beauty glorified.

No angel in the sky

Can fully bear that sight,

But downward bends his wond’ring eyes

At mysteries so bright.


Crown Him the Lord of Life!

Who triumphed o’er the grave;

Who rose victorious to the strife

For those He came to save.

His glories now we sing

Who died and rose on high,

Who died eternal life to bring,

And lives that death may die.


Crown Him the Lord of Heav’n!

One with the Father known,

One with the Spirit thro’ Him giv’n

From yonder glorious throne.

Crown Him the Lord of Heav’n!

One with the Father known,

One with the Spirit thro’ Him giv’n

From yonder glorious throne.

To Thee be endless praise,

For Thou for us hast died.

Be Thou, O Lord, thro’ endless days

Adored and magnified!


Invitation

Confession

Pardon

Peace


Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another. Therefore, let us confess our sin before God and one another.


Merciful God, We confess that we have not loved you with our whole heart. We have failed to be an obedient church.


We have not done your will, we have broken your law, we have rebelled against your love, we have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy.


We have not done your will, we have broken your law, we have rebelled against your love, we have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy.


Hear the good news, Christ died for us while we were still sinners, which proves God’s love for us. In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven


In the name of Jesus Christ, You Are forgiven Glory to God, Amen.


Scripture: Acts 5:17-32


17 Then the high priest took action; he and all who were with him (that is, the sect of the Sadducees), being filled with jealousy,

18 arrested the apostles and put them in the public prison.

19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors, brought them out, and said,

20 "Go, stand in the temple and tell the people the whole message about this life."

21 When they heard this, they entered the temple at daybreak and went on with their teaching. When the high priest and those with him arrived, they called together the council and the whole body of the elders of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.

22 But when the temple police went there, they did not find them in the prison; so they returned and reported,

23 "We found the prison securely locked and the guards standing at the doors, but when we opened them, we found no one inside."

24 Now when the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these words, they were perplexed about them, wondering what might be going on.

25 Then someone arrived and announced, "Look, the men whom you put in prison are standing in the temple and teaching the people!"

26 Then the captain went with the temple police and brought them, but without violence, for they were afraid of being stoned by the people.

27 When they had brought them, they had them stand before the council. The high priest questioned them,

28 saying, "We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and you are determined to bring this man's blood on us."

29 But Peter and the apostles answered, "We must obey God rather than any human authority.

30 The God of our ancestors raised up Jesus, whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree.

31 God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior that he might give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

32 And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him."

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.


“Christ is Risen”


Let no one caught in sin remain* Inside the lie of inward shame We fix our eyes upon the cross And run to him who showed great love And bled for us Freely you bled, for us Christ is risen from the dead Trampling over death by death Come awake, come awake! Come and rise up from the grave! Christ is risen from the dead We are one with him again Come awake, come awake! Come and rise up from the grave!

Come and rise up from the grave Christ is risen from the dead We are one with him again Come awake, come awake! Come and rise up from the grave Oh death! Where is your sting? Oh hell!

4 John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne,

5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and freed us from our sins by his blood,

6 and made us to be a kingdom, priests serving his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Message: Pastor Ryan


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​
