Order of Worship Third Sunday of Easter April 18, 2021
Prelude “This Joyful Eastertide” Dutch Carol, arr. Tom Birchwood
Call to Worship Tom and Maureen Upton
Christ the Lord is risen!
The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Let us offer right sacrifices to God,
We put our trust in the Lord.
In peace we lie down and sleep;
In the Lord alone do we lie down in safety.
Almighty God, the author of salvation by grace:
Blot out, we pray, the handwriting made by the law of sin which you have made void in us by the mystery of the resurrection of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord;
Who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God in glory everlasting. Amen.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,

Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever.
