Resurrection of the Lord
______________________________________________________
Jesus Christ, we greet you!
Your hands still have holes in them,
your feet are wet from the dew;
and with the memory of our names
undimmed by three days of death
you meet us, risen from the grave. 
You have come not to answer our questions,
but to show us your face. 
You are alive, and world can rejoice again. 
Hallelujah!


Stay safe. Be well. God bless and See you on-line,
Pastor Keith

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


COMMUNION ANTHEM 

Let this Day be Filled with Wonder

COMMUNION PRAYER

Gracious God, we give you thanks that by the witness of your word
and the sharing of this meal 
you have opened our hearts
and eyes to the presence of Christ among us. 
Now send us forth from this place by the power of your Spirit
to tell this good news to the world: 
The Lord has risen indeed! Amen.
 

HYMN (verses 1, 2)


BENEDICTION

We go nowhere by accident. Wherever we go, 
God is sending us. 
Wherever we are, 
God has put us there. 
God has a purpose in our being there. 
Christ who dwells in us has something He wants to do through us,
where we are…right now!  

Believe this and go in the grace and love and power of the
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
