Song Celebration:  “Raise an Halleluia”

I raise a hallelujah
in the presence of my enemies.

I raise a hallelujah
louder than the unbelief.

I raise a hallelujah;
my weapon is a melody.

I raise a hallelujah;
heaven comes to fight for me.

I’m gonna sing
in the middle of the storm.

Louder and louder,
you’re gonna hear my praises roar.

Up from the ashes hope will arise.
Death is defeated; the King is alive.

I raise a hallelujah
with everything inside of me.

I raise a hallelujah;
I will watch the darkness flee.

I raise a hallelujah
in the middle of the mystery.
I raise a hallelujah;

Fear, you lost your hold on me.

I’m gonna sing
in the middle of the storm.

Louder and louder,
you’re gonna hear my praises roar.

Up from the ashes hope will arise.
Death is defeated; the King is alive. 

I raise a hallelujah
in the presence of my enemies.

I raise a hallelujah
louder than the unbelief.

I raise a hallelujah;
my weapon is a melody.

I raise a hallelujah;
heaven comes to fight for me.

I’m gonna sing
in the middle of the storm.

Louder and louder,
you’re gonna hear my praises roar.

Up from the ashes hope will arise.
Death is defeated; the King is alive. 

I’m gonna sing
in the middle of the storm.

Louder and louder,
you’re gonna hear my praises roar.

Up from the ashes hope will arise.
Death is defeated; the King is alive. 

I raise a hallelujah.

I raise a hallelujah.

I raise a hallelujah.

I raise a hallelujah.

Children’s Time – Frank Mansell 

Sharing of Joys and Concerns and Lord’s Prayer – Frank Mansell

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 debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.   Amen. 

Scripture Acts 4:32-35 – Lisa Crismore

Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold. They laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need. 

A Time of Silent Prayer 

Song: “Broken Vessels”

All these pieces broken and scattered,
in mercy gathered, mended and whole.
Empty handed but not forsaken.
I've been set free, I've been set free.

 

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.

Oh, I once was lost but now I am found.

Was blind but now I see.

Oh, I can see You now,
Oh, I can see the love in Your eyes.
Laying Yourself down,
raising up the broken to life.

 

You take our failure,

You take our weakness.
You set Your treasure In jars of clay.

So take this heart, Lord ,

 I'll be Your vessel.
The world to see Your life in me.

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.

Oh, I once was lost but now I am found.

Was blind but now I see.

Oh, I can see You now,
Oh, I can see the love in Your eyes.
Laying Yourself down,
raising up the broken to life.

 

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.

Oh, I once was lost but now I am found.

Was blind but now I see.

Oh, I can see You now,
Oh, I can see the love in Your eyes.
Laying Yourself down,
raising up the broken to life.

 

Oh, I can see You now,
Oh, I can see the love in Your eyes.
Laying Yourself down,
raising up the broken to life.

Scripture: Psalm 133:1-3 – Amy Winton

How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard, on the beard of Aaron, runnin down over the collar of his robes. It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. For there the Lord ordained his blessing, life for evermore. 

Message – “Resurrection Community” – Lisa Crismore 

Oil Anointing – Lisa Crismore and Frank Mansell 

Song:  “Holy and Anointed One”

Jesus, Jesus,

Holy and anointed One, Jesus

Jesus, Jesus,

Risen and exalted One, Jesus.

 

Your name is like honey on my lips,

Your spirit like water to my soul,

Your Word is a lamp unto my feet.

Jesus, I love you, I love you.

 

Jesus, Jesus,

Holy and anointed One, Jesus.

Your name is like honey on my lips,

Your spirit like water to my soul,

 

Your word is a lamp unto my feet.

Jesus, I love you

I love you.  Jesus, Jesus.

Jesus, Jesus.

Celebration of the Lord’s Supper

Song:  “Who You Say I Am”

Who am I that the highest King

would welcome me?

I was lost but He brought me in.

Oh, His love for me.

Oh, His love for me.

 

Who the Son sets free,

oh is free indeed.

I’m a child of God, yes I am.

 

Free at last, He has ransomed me, His grace runs deep.

While I was a slave to sin,

Jesus died for me.

Yes, He died for me.

 

Who the Son sets free, oh is free indeed.

I’m a child of God, yes I am.

In my Father’s house there’s a place for me.
I’m a child of God, yes I am.

 

I am chosen, not forsaken.

I am who You say I am.

You are for me, not against me.

I am who You say I am.

I am chosen, not forsaken.

I am who You say I am.

You are for me, not against me.

I am who You say I am.

I am who You say I am.

 

Who the Son sets free, oh is free indeed.

I’m a child of God, yes I am.

In my Father’s house there’s a place for me.
I’m a child of God, yes I am.

 

I am chosen, not forsaken.

I am who You say I am.

You are for me, not against me.

I am who You say I am. 

 

I am chosen, not forsaken.

I am who You say I am.

You are for me, not against me.

I am who You say I am.

Oh, I am who You say I am.

Yes, I am who You say I am.

 

Who the Son sets free, oh is free indeed.

I’m a child of God, yes I am.

In my Father’s house there’s a place for me.
I’m a child of God, yes I am.

We are going to welcome Molly DeWitt as our guest preacher next Sunday, April 18, as she will share her message virtually with us at both worship services that day. We will also hear about how Pyoca is working hard to make this summer’s camping season safe and fun for children and youth, especially since they had to cancel summer camp last year due to the pandemic.
  • The landscape team will be dividing hostas at the church on April 14 at 9am weather permitting.  We will have a number of hostas available after 12pm noon on that day and following until all are gone. They will be in pots located in the outside parlor garden area. Hostas will be of various varieties.  If anyone would like one, please feel free to come and pick one up.  The landscape team simply requests that you make a donation to the landscape fund. Checks can be made out to John Knox and marked landscape fund.
  • On April 17 at 9am, the landscape team will be mulching areas around the church weather permitting.  If rain, alternate day will be April 24. If anyone is available and willing to assist on that day, it would be much appreciated.  Brings gloves, shovels, garden rakes and wheelbarrow if available. Thanks for all your help.
  • Summer will be here before you know it – what better way to spend a week of summer than at camp! Pyoca Camp and Retreat Center has a wonderful offering of programs this summer for children and youth everywhere from 3-days to a full week. You can learn more about what is offered this summer, and register online, at Pyoca’s website at: www.pyoca.org.

The service will be held in-person and online, streamed on our Facebook Page and church website. We will have more details about the service in our weekly emails and Sunday morning announcements leading up to April 18.
