PRELUDE – “Because Jesus Christ Is Alive” by The Sing Team

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Matthew 28:1-9

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week,

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake,

for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and,

going to the tomb,

rolled back the stone and sat on it.

His appearance was like lightning,

and his clothes were white as snow.

The guards were so afraid of him

that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women,

“Do not be afraid,

for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.

He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.

Come and see the place where he lay.

Then go quickly and tell his disciples:

‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.

There you will see him.’

Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb,

afraid yet filled with joy,

and ran to tell his disciples.

Suddenly Jesus met them.

“Greetings,” he said.

They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.

CONFESSION OF SIN –

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Roman 4:25 – 5:1

He was delivered over to death for our sins

and was raised to life for our justification.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith,

we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

CONFESSION OF FAITH – The Apostle’s Creed

We 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. He descended into hell and on the third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

We 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.
