traditional 9:00 worship service

April 28, 2019

WELCOME — Pastor Rob

PRELUDE — "Fairest Lord Jesus" — arr. by Smith-Hustad


    Pastor:  The glory of Easter fades so quickly if our faith is not great enough to believe in Christ's Resurrection.

    People:   The feeling that Christ's Resurrection is too good to be true is the very reason our faith seems inadequate.

    Pastor:  That may be why Thomas wanted to see the Lord before he would believe such a wonderful truth.

    People:  We cannot touch Christ's wounds; but we believe he arose, and we want our faith to be strong enough to always enjoy         the glory of his Resurrection.


* HYMN — "Christ Arose"— #357

* UNISON PRAYER — Most gracious Father, whose Son returned from the grave in glory, and appeared to his disciples: Grant us the faith to believe beyond what our eyes can tell us, that we may experience your Son in our lives as our Lord and our God! In his name we pray. Amen.

Welcome One Another in Christ.
