Zoom/Announcements














Facing God (Psalm 66)


Leader: Bless our God, O peoples, let the sound of God’s praise be heard, who has kept us among the living, and has not let our feet slip.


All: For you, O God, have tested us; we went through fire and through water


Leader: Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what the Lord has done for me.


All: Blessed be God, because God has not rejected my prayer or removed God’s steadfast love from me.


Leader: Let us worship God.


They’ll Know We Are Christians (Sing along with Abi muted)

We are one in the Spirit we are one in the Lord

We are one in the Spirit we are one in the Lord

And we pray that all unity may one day be restored

And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love

They will know we are Christians by our love


We will walk with each other we will walk hand in hand

We will walk with each other we will walk hand in hand

And together we will spread the news that God is in our land

And they will know we are Christians by our love, by our love

They will know we are Christians by our love


We will work with each other we will work side by side

We will work with each other we will work side by side

And we’ll guard each one’s dignity and save each one’s pride

And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love

And they’ll know we are Christians by our love


All praise to the Father from whom all blessings come

And all praise to Christ Jesus, His only son

And all praise to the Spirit who makes us one

And they’ll know we are Christians by our love by our love

And they’ll know we are Christians by our love


Prayer of Confession & Assurance

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

Almighty God, in raising Jesus from the grave, you shattered the power of sin and death. We confess that we remain captive to doubt and fear, bound by the ways that lead to death. Forgive us, God of mercy. Help us to trust your power to make us knew, that we might know the joy of life abundant given in Jesus Christ, the risen Lord. Amen.

Leader: The Good News is that Christ has come and Christ will come again. 

All: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God. 


Easter People, Raise Your Voices

(Everyone, unmuted)


Verse 2:

Fear of death can no more stop us

From our pressing here below,

For our Lord empowered us

To triumph over every foe.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Onto victory now we go.


Children's Bible Story


Lectio Conversation (John 14: 15-21)

(Hold onto these questions while we read our scripture.)

What stands out to you about this text?

Who do you identify with the most in this story?


“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.

“I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.”

Homily


Come, Holy Ghost

(Sing along with Abi muted until last chorus, then unmute!)


Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,

And in our hearts take up Your rest;

Come with Your grace and heavenly aid

to fill our hearts, which You have made,

To fill our hearts, which You have made.

Chorus:

Be not afraid, where you go there I am with you.

Be not afraid, where you go there I am with you.

O Comforter, to You we cry,

You, heav'nly gift of God most high;

You, fount of life, and fire of love,

And sweet anointing from above,

And sweet anointing from above.

Chorus

Praise we the Lord, Father and Son,

And Holy Spirit with them one;

And may the Son on us bestow

all gifts that from the Spirit flow,

All gifts that from the Spirit flow.

Chorus


Prayers of the People

Now is the time when we share the prayers on our hearts and minds. If you have a private prayer, you can email them to us throughout the week and the pastoral team will pray over them. 

If you have a prayer, please unmute your mic to share. 

After each prayer, I will lead our response on mute:

Lord in your mercy // hear our prayers

Now I will offer a prayer for the greater community and world. We will end by saying the Lord’s Prayer together in whatever language you prefer. Let us pray.

...ending in the Lord's Prayer (everyone on mute)

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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen.

What Joy

(Sing along with Abi muted until final chorus, then unmute!)

You made the heavens and the earth

The sea and all that is in them

Your promises remain

You give justice to the weak

You care for the widow and orphan

Forever Lord You reign

Chorus (2x):

What joy, what joy

For those whose hope is in

The name of the Lord

What peace, what peace

For those whose confidence

Is God alone


You make the blinded eye to see

And cherish those who seek Your face

Your faithful love endures

You came to let the slave go free

You cause the sinner to sing praise

In You we are secure

Chorus 2x


Hallelujah (x4)


Hallelujah forever we will sing

Hallelujah praises to the King

Hallelujah forever we will sing


Chorus 2x (Everyone, unmuted)


Sending/Blessing

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

As we close this time together, let us read this word from Jesus to his disciples in a time of uncertainty,

All: “A time has come when you will be scattered, each to your own home. Yet you are not alone, for my Father is with you. In me, you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Leader: The steadfast love of God goes with you, the deep and abiding peace of Christ goes with you, and the comfort and guidance of the Holy Spirit goes with you, now and always. Amen.
