Introit:       An Easter Alleluia                                                            Bob Burroughs

Please stand and sing


Hymn 207                                                                         “Jesus Christ is risen today”   




Alleluia. Christ is risen.

The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia.




Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.


All say



Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us;

    therefore let us keep the feast,

Not with old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, 

    but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.

Christ being raised from the dead will never die again;

    death no longer has dominion over him.

The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all;

    but the life he lives, he lives to God.

So also consider yourselves dead to sin,

    and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia.

Christ has been raised from the dead, 

    the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

For since by a man came death, 

    by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.

For as in Adam all die,

    so in Christ shall all be made alive. Alleluia.


All sing





The Lord be with you.

And also with you.


Let us pray.


O God, who for our redemption gave your only begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by his glorious resurrection delivered us from the power of our enemy: Grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

A Reading from Acts 10:34-43


Peter began to speak to Cornelius and the other Gentiles: “I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ–he is Lord of all. That message spread throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John announced: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. We are witnesses to all that he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; but God raised him on the third day and allowed him to appear, not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, and who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one ordained by God as judge of the living and the dead. All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”


The reader concludes by saying


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24


Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

his mercy endures for ever.

Let Israel now proclaim,

“His mercy endures for ever.”

The Lord is my strength and my song,

and he has become my salvation.

There is a sound of exultation and victory

in the tents of the righteous:

“The right hand of the Lord has triumphed!

the right hand of the Lord is exalted!

the right hand of the Lord has triumphed!”

I shall not die, but live,

and declare the works of the Lord.

The Lord has punished me sorely,

but he did not hand me over to death.

Open for me the gates of righteousness;

I will enter them;

I will offer thanks to the Lord.

“This is the gate of the Lord;

he who is righteous may enter.”

I will give thanks to you, for you answered me

and have become my salvation.

The same stone which the builders rejected

has become the chief cornerstone.

This is the Lord’s doing,

and it is marvelous in our eyes.

On this day the Lord has acted;

we will rejoice and be glad in it.


A Reading from 1 Corinthians 15:19-26


If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.


But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died. For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being; for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. Then comes the end, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father, after he has destroyed every ruler and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.


The reader concludes by saying


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


Please stand and sing


Hymn 175                                                                            “Hail thee, festival day!”


The Celebrant reads the Gospel, first saying


The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke 24:1-12

     Glory to you, Lord Christ.


On the first day of the week, at early dawn, the women who had come with Jesus from Galilee came to the tomb, taking the spices that they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in, they did not find the body. While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them. The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.” Then they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb, they told all this to the eleven and to all the rest. Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles. But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; then he went home, amazed at what had happened.


The Reader concludes by saying


The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

Sermon                                                                                                The Rev. Basil Price                                                                                                                                             

All stand


We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation

he came down from heaven:

by the power of the Holy Spirit

he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,

and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again

in accordance with the Scriptures;

he ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,

and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

With the Father and the Son, he is worshiped and glorified.

He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen.


Please remain standing

To you, O Lord.




Blessed are you, O Lord our God, for the victory over death of your Son Jesus Christ.

Hear the prayers we offer this holy day, and grant that we who have received new life in

baptism may live for ever in the joy of the resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord.





The peace of the Lord be always with you.

And also with you.

Offertory Anthem                                      Easter Paean                    Raymond H. Haan


Christ is risen, Christ is risen:

Tell it with a cheerful voice;

He has burst his three days’ prison;

Let the whole wide earth rejoice.

Death is conquered, man is free,

Christ has won the victory.


Alleluia, Alleluia! Alleluia, Christ is risen.

Come, ye sad and fearful hearted,

With glad smile and radiant brow;

Death’s long shadows have departed,

All our woes are over now.

Wondrous passion that he bore:

Sin and death can vex no more.


Alleluia, Alleluia! Alleluia, Christ is risen!

Come with high and holy hymning,

Chant our Lord’s triumphant day;

He has burst three days’ prison;

Let the whole wide earth rejoice.

Death is conquered, man is free,

Christ has won the victory.


Alleluia, alleluia! Alleluia!

Please stand


The Celebrant faces the people and sings

Remain standing or kneel


The Celebrant proceeds


It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.


But chiefly are we bound to praise you for the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; for he is the true Paschal Lamb, who was sacrificed for us, and has taken away the sin of the world. By his death he has destroyed death, and by his rising to life again he has won for us everlasting life.


Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with angels and archangels and all the company of heaven as we sing.


All sing


Hymn S-131 (can be found in the hymnal)


Holy, holy, holy Lord,

God of power and might,

Heave and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.



The Celebrant continues

Holy and gracious Father: In your infinite love you made us for yourself, and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to evil and death, you, in your mercy, sent Jesus Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all.


He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself, in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world.


On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, “Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.”


After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, “Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.”


Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:


Christ has died.

Christ is risen.

Christ will come again.


The Celebrant continues


We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Recalling his death, resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts.


Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom.


All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ: By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. Amen.


And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,


Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.


The Celebrant breaks the consecrated bread

Amen.


The Celebrant blesses the people


The God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, the great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight; and the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be among you, and remain with you always. Amen.
