Happy Easter !

Opening Song– “10,000 Reasons” (Matt Redman)

Refrain:

Bless the Lord oh my soul

Oh my soul

Worship His Holy name

Sing like never before

Oh my soul

I’ll worship Your Holy name

Verses:

The sun comes up

It’s a new day dawning

It’s time to sing your song again

Whatever may pass

And whatever lies before me

Let me be singing

When evening comes

(Refrain)

Your rich in love

And You’re slow to anger

Your name is great

And Your heart is kind

For all Your goodness

I will keep on singing

Ten thousand reasons

For my heart to find

(Refrain)

And on that day

When my strength is failing

The end draws near

And my time has come

Still my soul will

Sing Your praise unending

Ten thousand years

And then forevermore

Forevermore

Bless the Lord oh my soul

Oh my soul

Worship His Holy name

Sing like never before

Oh my soul

I’ll worship Your Holy name

Sing like never before

Oh my soul

I’ll worship Your Holy name

Yes I’ll worship Your Holy name

I’ll worship Your Holy name

Sing like never before

Oh my soul

I’ll worship Your Holy name

Jesus I will worship Your Holy name

Worship Your Holy name

ReadingsJohn 20: 1 – 18 (NLT)

Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”

Peter and the other disciple started out for the tomb. They were both running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He stooped and looked in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he didn’t go in. Then Simon Peter arrived and

 went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus’ head was folded up and lying apart from the other wrappings. Then the disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in, and he saw and believed – for until then they still hadn’t understood the Scriptures that said Jesus must rise from the dead. Then they went home.

Mary was standing outside the tomb crying and as she wept, she stooped and looked in. She saw two white-robed angels, one sitting at the head and the other at the foot of the place where the body of Jesus had been lying. “Dear woman, why are you crying?” the angels asked her. 

“Because they have taken away my Lord,” she replied, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” She turned to leave and saw someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him. “Dear woman, why are you crying?” Jesus asked her. “Who are you looking for?”

She thought he was the gardener. “Sir,” she said, “if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him.”

“Mary!” Jesus said.

She turned to him and cried out “Rabboni!” (which is Hebrew for “Teacher).

“Don’t cling to me,” Jesus said, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father. But go find my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”

Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, “I have seen the Lord!” Then she gave them his message.

Easter Message– “Intersections” Pastor Matt Shapton

Hymn“Now the Green Blade Rises” Augsburg Fortress

  1. Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,

wheat that in dark earth many days had lain;

love lives again, that with the dead has been;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

  • In the grave they laid him, love by hatred slain,

thinking that he would never wake again,

laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

  • Forth he came at Easter like the risen grain,

he that for three days in the grave had lain;

raised from the dead, my living Lord is seen;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

Our sin forgiving, alleluia!

Jesus is living, alleluia!

See for yourselves the tomb is all bare.

Only the grave clothes are lying there.”

Closing Song“Blessed Be Your Name”  (Matt Redman)

Blessed Be Your Name

In the land that is plentiful

Where Your streams of abundance flow

Blessed be Your name

Blessed Be Your name

When I’m found in the desert place

Though I walk through the wilderness

Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing You pour out, I’ll turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in, Lord still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed by Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name

When the sun’s shining down on me

When the world’s all as it should be

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name

On the road marked with suffering

Though there’s pain in the offering

Blessed be Your name

Every blessing You pour out I’ll turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in, Lord still I will say

Blessed by the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away

You give and take away

My heart will choose to say

Lord blessed by Your name

(Repeat)

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name

(Repeat)

P – Go in peace, Christ is with you!

C – Thanks be to God!

Happy Easter !
