ANNOUNCEMENTS

PRELUDE

I Want To Be a Christian by Mary McDonald

*CALL TO WORSHIP

Leader: It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
People: to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night
Leader: to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.
People: For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
Leader: How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep!

*HYMN OF PRAISE 

Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise, UMH #312

MORNING PRAYER

Almighty God, through your only Son you overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life. Grant that we who celebrate our Lord's resurrection, by the renewing of your Spirit, arise from the death of sin to the life of righteousness; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

WORDS OF ASSURANCE

THE LORD'S PRAYER

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.

ANTHEM

Be Thou My Vision by Joel K. Boyd

Melanie McCreary, Soloist

*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH - UMH #881

I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ his only son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

*GLORIA PATRI - UMH #71

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

world without end. Amen. Amen.
