Call to Worship
Christ is Risen!
He has Risen Indeed!
This is the Lord’s doing!
It is marvelous in our eyes!
This is the day that the Lord has made!
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Prayer of Confession (unison) Jesus, that we find too find the Kingdom of Heaven stories to be overwhelming. We can scarcely take the news in, and we are too obsessed with heaven to worry about what it is we should be doing here on earth. Forgive us. Teach us to do fear not and to tell the Good News of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen. (Silent Prayer)…Amen
Assurance of Pardon: Know this, God has answered us and become our salvation, so let us proclaim the good news of Easter: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.
Prayer of Dedication: (unison) Jesus meets us with the good news, reminding us what the Kingdom of Heaven is like. Let us remind one another as we go into the world—the Kingdom of heaven is like grace, it is like justice it is love and forgiveness and resurrection. Come let us rejoice in the Kingdom of God this Easter.
