GATHERING SONG

“Alleluia! Give The Glory – By: Ken Canedo

Refrain: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Give the glory and the honor to the Lord!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Give the glory and the honor to the Lord!

 

Where two or three are gathered in my name,

There I am in the midst of them; there I’ll be. Refrain.

 

I am the vine and you are the branches.

Abide in me and bear much fruit. Refrain.

GREETING

L:       The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

C:       And also with you.

PRAYER OF THE DAY

L:       O God,

C:       you give us your Son as the vine apart from whom we cannot live. Nourish our life in his resurrection, that we may bear the fruit of love and know the fullness of your joy, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

HOLY GOSPEL – John 15:1-8

[Jesus said:] 1“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. 2He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. 3You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you. 4Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. 5I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. 6Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. 7If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.”

SERMON – Pr. Karen Behling

SONG OF THE DAY

“Alleluia! Jesus Is Risen

Alleluia! Jesus is risen! Trumpets resounding in glorious light!

Splendor, the Lamb, heaven forever! Oh, what a miracle God has in sight!

 

Refrain

Jesus is risen and we shall arise. Give God the glory! Alleluia!

 

Walking the way, Christ in the center telling the story to open our eyes;

breaking our bread, giving us glory: Jesus our blessing, our constant surprise.  Refrain

 

Weeping, be gone; sorrow, be silent: death put asunder, and Easter is bright.

Cherubim sing: O grave, be open! Clothe us in wonder, adorn us in light.  Refrain

 

City of God, Easter forever, golden Jerusalem, Jesus the Lamb,

river of life, saints and archangels, sing with creation to God the I AM!  Refrain

SENDING SONG

“Shout To The Lord” – By: Darlene Zschech

Shout To The Lord – By: Darlene Zschech

 

My Jesus, my Savior, Lord, there is none like you.

All of my days I want to praise the wonders of your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter; tower of refuge and strength;

Let ev’ry breath, all that I am never cease to worship you.

 

Shout to the Lord, all the earth; let us sing

power and majesty, praise to the King;

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar at the sound of your name.

I sing for joy at the work of your hands;

forever I’ll love you, forever I’ll stand.

Nothing compares to the promise I have in you.

Repeat all

DISMISSAL

P:       Alleluia! Christ is risen.

C:       Christ is risen indeed. Alleluia!

P:       Go in peace. Share the good news. Alleluia!

C:       Thanks be to God. Alleluia!
