1 Easter Sunday The Resurrection of Our Lord April 16, 2017 Welcome! Easters come and go, and it seems that little changes. Or does it? What we sing and celebrate today is already ours. We were baptized into His death and raised with Christ to new and everlasting life. Easter is the celebration not only of Christ s victory but also of our own victory in Christ Jesus, our Savior. Christ is risen, and we with Him. It is a victory already ours but not yet fully complete in us. Part of Christian life is seeing who we are and the life we live in the context of the baptismal miracle of new identity and new life that we have been given. Every day we grasp this gift by faith and remember it is for me. We wear a new name and are heirs of an eternal victory and a life that death cannot overcome. How might our lives change if we lived out this glorious Easter truth more than one day a year? Holy Communion We believe that Christ s body and blood are truly present in Holy Communion, and that we receive the forgiveness of sins along with the bread and wine in this Holy Meal. As a family church, we invite those who share this understanding, and who desire God s forgiveness and strength, to join with us in receiving Holy Communion. At the 9:00 AM service Holy Communion will be distributed in a continuous line fashion, instead of at the altar. Please note that the first chalice will be for those who wish to drink the wine. The second chalice will be for those who wish to dip the bread into the wine. (Gluten free wafers are available.) If you have any questions, please speak to one of our pastors at any time. All worshippers are asked to fill out the Fellowship Pad in the pew and pass it down. After all have signed, please leave the pad at the end of the pew to be picked up after worship. Thank you! 1

2 PRELUDE Praise the Lord with Drums and Cymbals - Karg-Elert PASTORAL GREETING PROCESSIONAL HYMN Jesus Christ Is Risen Today LSB 457 INVOCATION + Please stand and face the cross during the procession to the altar. + P: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. EASTER PROCLAMATION (Repeat three times) P: Alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia! CONFESSION and FORGIVENESS P: Even on this festival day, if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. P: Let us pray. Almighty God, heavenly Father, We confess that we have not remained strong in faith. We have not always let the sure news of your resurrection dispel the fear that wells up within us. We have thought, spoken, and acted in weakness. We have not loved you with our whole hearts, and we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We deserve your judgment in time and eternity. Forgive us and renew in us the sure hope of joining saints and angels around the eternal feast which you have prepared for all who call your Son their Savior and Lord. P: By his suffering and death our Lord has paid for our sins, and by his rising has destroyed the power of death. As a called and ordained servant of our risen and triumphant Lord Jesus Christ and by his authority I therefore forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. HYMN OF PRAISE This is the Feast 2

3 PRAYER OF THE DAY P: The Lord be with you. P: Let us pray. Mighty Lord, Your own Son left the darkness of the grave to rise and show forth His glorious body as the firstborn of the dead. As You have united us to the cross of Christ by Baptism, so raise us up to newness of life that we may recall 3

4 our Lord s resurrection with joy and live it out by the power of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. FIRST LESSON Acts 10:34-43 So Peter opened his mouth and said: Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. As for the word that he sent to Israel, preaching good news of peace through Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all), you yourselves know what happened throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John proclaimed: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him on the third day and made him to appear, not to all the people but to us who had been chosen by God as witnesses, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one appointed by God to be judge of the living and the dead. To him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name. R: This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. TRINITY CHOIR (9:00) Open To Me the Gates of Righteousness Scott YOUTH ENSEMBLE (11:00) Alleluia! Christ Is Risen Lau SECOND LESSON Colossians 3:1-4 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. R: This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. ALLELUIA (Sing twice before the Gospel and once after) LSB 952 4

Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you. So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, Greetings! And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me. P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.

6 NICENE CREED We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen. PRAYERS OF THE CHURCH SHARING OF THE PEACE + We encourage you to leave your pew and greet new people! + P: The peace of the Lord be with you always. And also with you.

P: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. P: We give You thanks, O Lord, almighty Father, everlasting God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, praising You for sending Him to be our Savior and Redeemer and raising Him from the dead so that we may be restored to everlasting life. As 7

8 we have received this blessed new life in Baptism, keep us in this faith and hope until the day when we and all the dead shall rise with Christ to our own joyful resurrection and join in the blest reunion of the saints in the life that is to come, where, with angels and archangels, and with all the company of heaven, we glorify You and join the unending hymn: THE WORDS OF OUR LORD PROCLAMATION OF CHRIST P: As often as we eat this bread and drink this cup, we proclaim the Lord s death until he comes. Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. 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 and ever. Amen. AGNUS DEI Lamb of God 8

10 CLOSING PRAYER A: Let us pray. Almighty God, You did not abandon Your people to the sin and death we freely chose, but You sent Your own Son to save us. By His death and resurrection, we have been rescued from our sin and delivered from death. When we were baptized, You marked us as the people of Your promise and gave us new and everlasting life. Help us to rejoice in this good news and daily live in this grace and hope for our sake and for the sake of the world. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
