Easter Sunday Celebration

Our Order of Worship will be similar to our other online services,

Call to Worship
Prayer of Adoration

Hymn – Christ is Risen, Shout Hosanna!  (Tune: Hymn to Joy)
Christ is risen! Shout Hosanna!
Celebrate this day of days!
Christ is risen! Hush in wonder:
All creation is amazed.
In the desert all-surrounding,
See, a spreading tree has grown.
Healing leaves of grace aboundin

     Bring a taste of love unknown.
Christ is risen! Raise your spirits
From the caverns of despair.
Walk with gladness in the morning.
See what love can do and dare.
Drink the wine of resurrection,
Not a servant, but a friend.
Jesus is our strong companion.
Joy and peace shall never end.

     Christ is risen! Earth and heaven
Nevermore shall be the same.
Break the bread of new creation
Where the world is still in pain.
Tell its grim, demonic chorus:
“Christ is risen! Get you gone!”
God the First and Last is with us,
Sing Hosanna, everyone!

Prayer of Confession
Assurance of Forgiveness
Passing the Peace
Scripture
Meditation
Prayers of the People
Offering
Benediction

Let me also take this opportunity to thank all of you who have been so gracious and generous in sending your pledges and gifts to the church.  Your donations continue to support our ministry, and our Governing Board and I are truly appreciative.

May God forever embrace you with love, joy, and peace.

Easter blessings,

From the Pastor’s Pen – March 2021

…during these 40 days of Lent, we may be wandering through a wilderness and encountering a different set of wild beasts. Invisible viruses are attempting to devour us; the herd of political animosity is growling around us…”

There Is Always Hope – 2/21/21

As we begin our journey through the Lenten season, you are invited to worship with us, and join the celebration of the Lord’s Supper (have some bread and juice available, so we can partake together).

Listen to Him – 2.14.21

On this Transfiguration Sunday (2/14/21), join us for worship. This week, our special musical guest is the University of Notre Dame Folk Choir.

Looking for Jesus – 2/7/21

Special music provided by the Domino Cantes Choir from Brussels, Belgium. In the spirit of ecumenism and interconnectedness, the Domino Cantes Choir is . . . a Polish choir . . . from a Dominican church in Belgium . . . directed by a woman (Kinga Rytel) who teaches at an international school with 60 different nationalities . . . singing a traditional Irish tune . . . to a congregation in the United States.

February Newsletter

Lent is not only that time in the church year in which we are summoned to examine ourselves and our everyday preoccupations in order to take stock of the direction of our lives, but it also that time where we are invited to follow Jesus along the journey that took Him to the cross.
