Call to Worship

It was early in the morning. Still dark. The dawn just starting to cut through the fog.

The air hung heavy with expectation, as if the earth itself were holding its breath.

The echoes of the cross linger. His voice still rings out:

It Is Finished. Into your hands I commit my spirit.

Now, a stone is rolled away. The guards asleep at its side.

A pile of clothes, folded in an empty tomb.

With Mary we look up, and through her tears

Why do you look for the living among the dead?

The gardener speaks her name: Mary. Jesus looks at you and Jesus speaks your name.

The world is new as he speaks our name. I am made new as he speaks my name.

Love’s redeeming work is done.

Death is finished. Satan is doomed. Evil is conquered. God is good.

He is risen.

He is risen indeed.

 

Praise Song: Christ is Risen from the Dead


Hymn: He Lives

I serve a risen Saviour, He's in the world today

I know that He is living, whatever men may say

I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer

And just the time I need Him He's always near

 

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today

He walks with me and talks with me

Along life's narrow way

He lives, He lives, Salvation to impart

You ask me how I know He lives?

He lives within my heart

 

In all the world around me I see His loving care

And though my heart grows weary I never will despair

I know that He is leading, through all the stormy blast

The day of His appearing will come at last

 

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian Lift up your voice and sing

Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ, the King

The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find

None other is so loving, so good and kind

 

Sermon-   Journey to the Cross- The Garden     Pastor Jordan Rimmer

 

Closing Hymn: Because He Lives
