Personal Prayers to use before worship may be found on pages 10-11.

HYMN: 152 (1-4)
 
M: Alleluia, Christ is risen!
C: He is risen indeed, Alleluia!
 
M: We celebrate this festival day in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
C: Amen.
 
M: Upon the hill the cross stands empty. Morning light breaks upon the tomb.
C: Christ is risen, Alleluia!
 
M: Within us, new life is awakened. God has given new hope to a dying world.
C: Christ is risen indeed, Alleluia! Amen!
 
Confession of Sins
 

M: Lord, prepare us for worship as we confess our sins.
C: Almighty Lord God, we have come together to stand in your presence, to hear your Word, and to worship you by celebrating the resurrection of your Son.
 
M: But who may appear in your presence, heavenly Father, and who may call on you for help?
C: The one who has clean hands and a pure heart shall receive blessings from the Lord.
 
M: O holy and righteous God, you alone can make us clean. We have rebelled against you and are worthy to receive only your wrath and condemnation. But your mercies never end; they are new every day. With your command and promise in mind, therefore, we come to you to confess our sins.
C: O holy and merciful Father, I am altogether sinful from birth. In countless ways I have sinned against you and do not deserve to be called your child. But at your gracious invitation I come to you, and for the sake of my Lord Jesus Christ, I plead: Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner.
 
M: God, our heavenly Father, has been merciful to us and has given his only Son To be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Therefore, as a called servant of Christ and by his authority, I forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen
 
M: The Lord be with you.
C: And also with you.
 
PRAYER OF THE DAY: 
 
Let us pray.
  Almighty God, by your glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ you conquered death and opened the gate to eternal life. Grant that we, who have been raised by him through baptism, may walk in the newness of life ever rejoicing in the hope of sharing his glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit be dominion and praise now and forever.
 
C: Amen
 
Hymn: 149 (1-4)
 
First Lesson: Exodus 15:1-11
Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord. They said:
I will sing to the Lord, for he is highly exalted.
The horse and its rider he has thrown into the sea.
2The Lord is my strength and song.
3The Lord is a warrior.
The Lord is his name.
4He has cast Pharaoh’s chariots and his army into the sea.
His elite officers are drowned in the Red Sea.
5The deep waters covered them.
They sank down to the depths like a stone.
6Lord, your right hand is glorious in power.
Lord, your right hand has shattered the enemy.
7In your great majesty you overthrew those who opposed you.
You sent out your burning anger.
It consumed them like stubble.
8At the blast from your nostrils the waters piled up.
The flowing waters stood up like a dam.
The deep waters became solid in the heart of the sea.
9The enemy said, “I will pursue.
I will overtake. I will divide the plunder.
I will do whatever I want with them.
I will draw my sword,
and my hand will destroy them.”
10But you blew with your breath,
and the sea covered them.
They sank like lead in the mighty waters.
11Lord, who is like you among the gods?
Who is like you, glorious in holiness,
awesome in praise, working wonders?
 
Hymn: 150 (1-2)

Psalm of the Day: 118 (p. 57 in Supplement)

Second Lesson: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11
Brothers, I am going to call your attention to the gospel that I preached to you. You received it, and you took your stand on it. 2You are also being saved by that gospel that was expressed in the words I preached to you, if you keep your hold on it—unless you believed in vain. 3For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received:
that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures,
4that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,
5and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the Twelve.
6After that he appeared to over five hundred brothers at the same time, most of whom are still alive, but some have fallen asleep. 7Then he appeared to James, and then to all the apostles. 8Last of all, he appeared also to me, the stillborn child, so to speak. 9For I am the least of the apostles, and I am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted God’s church. 10But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not ineffective. On the contrary, I worked more than all of them (and yet it wasn’t my doing, but it was the grace of God, which was with me, that did it). 11So whether it is I or they, that is what we preach, and that is what you believed.

Hymn: 150 (3-4)

Gospel Lesson:  Luke 24:1-12
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women went to the tomb, carrying the spices they had prepared. 2They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb. 3When they went in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men stood by them in dazzling clothing. 5The women were terrified and bowed down with their faces to the ground.
The men said to them, “Why are you looking for the living among the dead? 6He is not here, but has been raised! Remember how he told you while he was still in Galilee 7that the Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again?” 8Then they remembered his words.
9When they returned from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the rest. 10It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles. 11Yet these words seemed to them like nonsense, and they did not believe them. 12But Peter got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over to look in, he saw only the strips of linen cloth. He went home, amazed at what had happened.

 APOSTLE’S CREED:
  I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
  I believe 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, died, and was buried.  He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.  From there he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
 
Hymn: 341

Sermon Text:
2 Timothy 2:8
               Theme: “Remember Jesus Christ: He Has Risen!”
 
OFFERINGS
 
PRAYER:
 
M: Lord Jesus, on this first day of the week, we come together to celebrate your resurrection from the grave.
 
C: He is risen! Alleluia!
 
M: You have promised that though our sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. So often we spoil our celebrations of your grace. Sin plagues our thoughts, words and actions. Forgive us, Lord Jesus. When our sins weigh heavily upon our hearts, assure us that you have arisen and our sins have been forgiven.
 
C: He is risen! Alleluia!
 
M: Dear Jesus, we sometimes become so busy with all the things of this life that the hope of Easter fades. When the pace of life causes us to worry about where we must be, what we must do, and what is next, remind us that your empty tomb gives us victory over sin, death and hell. Sustain us, O Lord, with the sure and certain hope that we shall live forever with you when all life’s hectic events cease.
 
C: He is risen! Alleluia!
 
M: Death surrounds us all every day. As we watch our loved ones die, our hearts are saddened, and our eyes fill with tears. We know we too will die and our bodies will rest in the grave. Lord Jesus, give us confidence, hope, and joy in the face of death. When death reaches for us and our loved ones, comfort us with your empty tomb. Our graves will not hold us any more than your grave could hold you. Preserve us in faith that we may be reunited with all believers and sing your praise forever. Give us the courage to share with others the hope we have because of your triumphant resurrection from the dead.
 
C: He is risen! Alleluia! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
 
M: While we wait for you to take us home, we must face many trials and sorrows. We come to you with our personal prayers.
 
Silent prayer.
 
M: Alleluia! Lord Jesus, you have arisen. Help us trust your resurrection in the days ahead, whether they are filled with joy or sorrow. Guide us each day until we stand before you to sing your praise forever. Now we bring our requests to you in the words of the prayer you have taught us:
 
C: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread; forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us; lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
