Prelude             He Lives


Hymn                       The Easter Song


Call to Worship         based on John 20: 1-18


Leader:  Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

People:  On this glorious Easter morning, we gather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, our Savior and Lord.

Leader:   As Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early in the morning and found the stone rolled away.

People:  So we come, seeking the Living One, who has overcome death and the grave.

Leader:  Though she wept with grief, Jesus called her by name, turning her sorrow into joy.

People:  In our worship, let us listen for the voice of the risen Christ, calling us into new life and hope.

Leader:   Jesus said to her, “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father.”

People:  We rejoice in His presence among us, even as we await the fullness of His kingdom.

Leader:  Christ has risen, just as He said! Let us worship God with joy, for death has been swallowed up in victory!

People:  Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!

All:  Alleluia! Let us worship the Risen Christ, whose love and power know no end. Amen.
