Risen with Christ,

let us seek the realities of the Spirit.

Our life is hidden with Christ in God.

He who descended is also ascended far above the heavens,

that he might fill all things.

When Christ, our Life, appears,

we shall appear with him in glory! Alleluia!

OPENING MUSIC: “Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise” #312 UMH

OPENING PRAYER: Wondrous God, our hearts are full of praise for all the glorious things you have given us. When we look upon your creation, we realize that it reflects your glory. When we experience the gift of a parent’s love, we are reminded of your tender love for us. When we worship in the great congregation of all those who name you as Lord, we are blessed to be counted among your children. Hear our prayer of joy and thanksgiving this day, and sustain in us, grateful hearts, that we might praise you eternally.Through Christ, our Lord. Amen
