Run from fear and darkness! Hope is on the move!

Opening Hymn          Jesus Christ Is Risen Today            #232

Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!

Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!

Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!

Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

Our salvation have procured; Alleluia!

Now above the sky he's king, Alleluia!

Where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!

4) Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!

Praise eternal as his love; Alleluia!

Praise him, all you heavenly host, Alleluia!

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Alleluia!



Apostle’s Creed         Rev. Heather Chase

I believe in God, the Creator almighty,

      creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,

  who was conceived by the Holy Spirit

  and born of the virgin Mary.

  He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

  was crucified, died, and was buried;

  he descended to hell.

  The third day he rose again from the dead.

  He ascended to heaven

  and is seated at the right hand of God the Creator almighty.

  From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

  the holy catholic church,

  the communion of saints,

  the forgiveness of sins,

  the resurrection of the body,

  and the life everlasting. Amen.
