Welcome and Announcements


Opening Prayer


Gathering  O Lord Hear my Prayer


Call to Worship (based on Psalm 23)

Our Good Shepherd has led us to this place.

He leads us beside still waters; he restores our soul.

Even though we walk through dark valleys,

even though we are fearful and in need of comfort,

Our cup overflows with God’s goodness and mercy;

we shall dwell in the house of the Lord our whole lives long.

Opening Hymn #121 That Easter Day with Joy Was Bright


Prayer of Confession

Savior God, you guide us, but we are slow to follow and stubborn. You welcome us to your fold, but we make others feel as if they don’t belong. Forgive our life-alienating ways, our exclusion and judgment; the way we evaluate and compare, demean and degrade. Redeem us. Restore us. Help us be faithful as your flock. Amen.


Assurance of Pardon


Gloria Patri


Children’s Sermon

Hymn #172 My Shepherd Will Supply My Need


Scripture: Acts 4:5-12


Anthem We Are the Lord's               Trad. Irish/

Charles T Astley/Roland E Martin

1 We are the Lord's; his all-sufficient merit,

Sealed on the cross, to us this grace accords.

We are the Lord's and all things shall inherit;

Whether we live or die, we are the Lord's.

2 We are the Lord's; then let us gladly tender

Our souls to him in deeds, not empty words.

Let heart and tongue and life combine to render

No doubtful witness that we are the Lord's.

3 We are the Lord's; no darkness brooding o'er us

Can make us tremble while this star affords

A steady light along the path before us -- 

Faith's full assurance that we are the Lord's.

4 We are the Lord's; no evil can befall us

In the dread hour of life's fast loos'ning cords;

No pangs of death shall even then appall us.

Death we shall vanquish, for we are the Lord's.


Scripture: John 10:11-18
