Call to Worship                                                                                            

This is the good news—the grave is empty, Christ is risen. HALLELUJAH!

This is the good news—the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never put it out. HALLELUJAH!

This is the good news—once we were no people, now we are God’s people. HALLELUJAH!

Christ is our peace, the indestructible peace we now share with each other. HALLELUJAH!

Opening Prayer

Lord of Life, submitting to death, you conquered the grave. By being lifted on a cross you draw all peoples to you. By being raised from the dead you restored humanity all that we had lost through sin. Throughout these fifty days of Easter we proclaim the marvelous mystery of death and resurrection. For all praise is yours, now and through eternity. Amen.

 

 

*Welcoming the Light of Christ

Light your candle to symbolize the light of Christ in the world, in your life, and in your space.

The Lord’s Prayer ~ Bishop Sally Dyck and the NIC Cabinet (Video) (Audio)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.

 

*Following the Light of Christ

You can choose to either keep your candle burning throughout the day, or extinguish it as you sing/listen.
