THE OPENING HYMN
“Jesus Christ Is Risen Today” Please Stand
1 Jesus Christ is ris’n today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!

2 Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heav’nly king, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

3 But the pains which He endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation have procured; Alleluia!
Now above the sky He’s king, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!

4 Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
Praise eternal as His love; Alleluia!
Praise Him, all ye heav’nly host, Alleluia!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Alleluia!
THE CALL TO WORSHIP ………………...(from I Corinthians 15)
P: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen.

P: Christ is risen!
C: He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

P: Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory?
C: O death, where is your sting?

P: The sting of death is sin,
C: and the power of sin is the law.

P: But thanks be to God!
C: Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

P: Therefore, my beloved brothers,
C: be steadfast, immovable,

P: always abounding in the work of the Lord,
C: knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

THE EASTER CONFESSION
P: We come together this day rejoicing in the knowledge of Christ’s resurrection. Yet we acknowledge and confess that we have often failed to live as resurrected people. For we died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore, we make confession and ask for forgiveness.

C: Merciful God, our heavenly Father, since You have given Your Son Jesus to die for us, have mercy on us. For His sake forgive all our sins. By Your Holy Spirit strengthen and increase our faith in You. Guide us that we may obey Your Word and walk in Your ways. And finally, bring us safely to everlasting life. We ask this in the name of Jesus, who died for our sin, and is risen and alive forevermore. Amen.

P: We were buried with Christ through baptism into death in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. As your pastor it is my privilege to announce to you all your sins are forgiven in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

C: Alleluia! Amen!

THE HYMN OF EASTER PRAISE
“Now All The Vault of Heaven Resounds”
Now all the vault of heav’n resounds
In praise of love that still abounds:
“Christ has triumphed! He is living!”
Sing, choirs of angels, loud and clear!
Repeat their song of glory here:
“Christ has triumphed! Christ has triumphed!”
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

THE PRAYER OF THE DAY
P: Heavenly Father, as the morning sun breaks through the darkness of the night, so Your Son breaks through the darkness of sin and death. We pray that we who celebrate with joy the day of our Lord’s resurrection may, by the gift of forgiveness, live our new lives to Your glory. May the faith You have planted in our hearts guide us through this earthly journey until we are called to the eternal joys of heaven. We ask this in the name of Jesus who has conquered His grave and ours.
C: Amen.
THE EASTER ESPISTLE: Romans 8 (selected verses)
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us….28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose….31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?...37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Pastor: This is the Word of the Lord.
People: Thanks be to God.

Pastor: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
People: Praise be to You, O Christ! ♫
THE EASTER CREED
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, who sent His Son as my Savior to rise on Easter morning.

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, died on Good Friday, rose again on Easter morning to free me from the curse of sin, and the sting of death, and the power of the devil.

I believe in the Holy Spirit; who has brought me to faith in the Christ of Easter; and by whose continuous work in my heart, I am ever led to be steadfast and unmovable, always abounding in the work of my resurrected Lord. Amen.

THE CLOSING HYMN
“I Know That My Redeemer Lives”

1 I know that my Redeemer lives;
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, He lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my ever-living head.

2 He lives triumphant from the grave;
He lives eternally to save;
He lives all-glorious in the sky;
He lives exalted there on high.

6 He lives, my kind, wise, heav’nly friend;
He lives and loves me to the end;
He lives, and while He lives, I’ll sing;
He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King.

7 He lives and grants me daily breath;
He lives, and I shall conquer death;
He lives my mansion to prepare;
He lives to bring me safely there.

8 He lives, all glory to His name!
He lives, my Jesus, still the same;
Oh, the sweet joy this sentence gives:
I know that my Redeemer lives!
