April 1, 2018—Easter
This Sunday is Easter Sunday, and we’re excited to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus with you at Park Church. Here are a couple ways to prepare for our service together:
1. Read through our text, Philippians 3:7–11.
All the hopes and expectations of Christians are realized in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from dead. This day is the culmination of all that the Gospel is about, causing us to desire with Paul to “know Him and the power of His resurrection.”
2. Read, pray and sing through the service:
BAPTISM & PROCESSIONAL
Roll Away The Stone (Latifah Alattas, David Wilton)
Jesus Paid It All (Elvina Hall, Kristen Stanfill)
Break Every Chain (Will Reagan)
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 57:8–9, Welcome (From Immanuel Nashville):
To all who are weary and need rest,
To all who mourn and long for comfort,
To all who feel worthless and wonder if God cares,
To all who fail and desire strength,
To all who sin and need a Savior,
This church opens wide her doors
with a welcome from Jesus Christ,
the Ally of His enemies, the Defender of the guilty,
the Justifier of the inexcusable, the Friend of sinners,
the Conqueror of the grave, the resurrection and the life.
Christ The Lord Is Risen Today (Charles Wesley)
O Praise The Name (Anástasis) (Benjamin Hastings, Marty Sampson, Dean Ussher)
CONFESSION OF SIN: From The Worship Sourcebook:
Almighty God, You have raised Jesus from the grave
and crowned Him Lord of all.
We confess that we have not bowed before Him
or acknowledged His rule in our lives.
We have gone along with the way of the world and failed to give Him glory.
Forgive us and raise us from sin,
that we may be Your faithful people,
obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who rules the world and is head of the church, His body. Amen.
Nothing But The Blood (Robert Lowry arr. Page CXVI)
Man Of Sorrows (Matt Crocker, Brooke Ligertwood)
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: From Ephesians 2:4–7
GREETING & SERMON
RESPONSE: Song & Prayer
