Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020

We’re back to a full preview of the service with this week’s Preparing for Sunday as we lead up to a full service online together for Easter. Here’s how you can prepare!

1. Read our text, 1 Corinthians 1:3–9.

2. Read, pray, and sing through the service:

CALL TO WORSHIP: Matthew 28:1–6

Up From The Grave He Arose (Robert Lowry arr. The Christian Year)
Is He Worthy (Andrew Peterson, Ben Shive arr. Shane & Shane)

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

ASSURANCE OF PARDON: From John 11:25–26:

I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die…

O Praise The Name (Anástasis) (Brock, Brown, Furtick, Joye)


King of Kings (Jason Ingram, Brooke Ligertwood, Scott Ligertwood)


Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019

This Sunday is Easter Sunday, where we celebrate the victory of Christ over sin and death at His resurrection. It’s the hopes of the world realized in the completed work of Jesus. Here’s how you can prepare for our exuberant time together!

1. Read through our text, Matthew 28:1–10.

What do we do with the empty tomb? Though the response of the elders of the people was a conspiracy attempt to falsify the resurrection through a lie and a bribe, its historical reality is well-recorded and richly-realized in countless hearts as the Gospel fills the earth through God’s people. We see a clear choice emerge: excuse and reject Jesus’ resurrection or draw near to Him and worship!

2. Read, pray, and sing through the service:


Roll Away The Stone (Latifah Alattas, David Wilton)
Oh Happy Day (Philip Doddridge, Edwin Hawkins)
Jesus Paid It All (Elvina Hall, Kristen Stanfill)

CALL TO WORSHIP: Matthew 28:1–6, 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,
To all who hunger and thirst for righteousness;
And to whomever will come:
This church opens wide her doors
wand offers her welcome in the name of Jesus Christ

Doxology (Amen) (Bourgeois, Ken, Owens, Wickham)
Up From The Grave He Arose (Robert Lowry arr. The Christian Year)


Jesus, You said, “I am the resurrection and life,” and yet we constantly live as if life could be found apart from You. The brokenness we find in ourselves and in the world around us reminds us that nothing could be further from the truth. Only You have the words of life. Only You can resurrect our dead hearts and lives. Please forgive our sin and waywardness that leads only to death, and guide us in the way everlasting. In Your powerful name, amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON: Ephesians 2:4–7

Is He Worthy? (Andrew Peterson, Ben Shive)
Living Hope (Brian Johnson, Phil Wickham)


Man Of Sorrows (Matt Crocker, Brooke Ligertwood)
