Resurrection of Our Lord/Easter Sunday April 17th, 2022
Pastor Katie Kringstad
EASTER CALL TO WORSHIP: Based on Psalm 118:1, 15, 17, 22-24
Give thanks to the Lord because he is good, because his faithful love lasts forever.
Christ is risen! Praise the Lord!
The sounds of joyful songs and deliverance are heard in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s strong hand is victorious!” Christ is risen! Praise the Lord!
I won’t die—no, I will live and declare what the Lord has done.
Christ is risen! Praise the Lord!
The stone rejected by the builders is now the main foundation stone! This has happened because of the Lord; it is astounding in our sight! Christ is risen! Praise the Lord!
This is the day the Lord acted;
we will rejoice and celebrate in it!
Almighty God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, this is a great day: the day of your creating and saving work through the resurrection of Jesus Christ! By faith, we too have died with Christ and have been raised with Christ so that it is no longer we who live but Christ who lives in us. So we have come to celebrate your life, declare your praise, and glorify your name, through Christ, the Risen One. Amen.

APOSTLES' CREED (ELW p. 152)
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.*
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and 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.
OFFERING PRAYER (ELW p. 152)

Blessed are you, O God, maker of all things. Through your goodness you have blessed us with these gifts: ourselves, our time, and our possessions. Use us, and what we have gathered, in feeding the world with your love, through the one who gave himself for us, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
OFFERING HYMN: Special Music
PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION
On this day of resurrection joy, let us offer our prayers for ourselves, our neighbors, and our world. A brief silence.
Renewing God, the good news of your resurrection changed the world. Give church leaders and all the baptized the same excitement as the women at the tomb, and inspire us to share your abundant life. Merciful God, receive our prayer.
Sustaining God, your creation abounds with signs of new life in budding trees and newborn creatures. Provide fertile soil, ample sunlight, and nourishing rain for the growth of plants, and provide farmers with a plentiful harvest. Merciful God, receive our prayer.
Sheltering God, strengthen and sustain all who support vulnerable people across the world. Empower government agencies and international organizations that provide for refugees and migrants forced to leave their homelands. Merciful God,
receive our prayer.
Encouraging God, you do a new thing among us. We pray for those gripped by fear and anxiety or who suffer in any way (especially). Send us as your healing presence to places of hunger, pain, illness, or overwhelming sorrow. Merciful God,
receive our prayer.
Surprising God, you offer endless ways for us to delight in your grace. Give this community of faith a sense of joy and wonder in exploring new avenues of faith formation, worship, and discipleship. Merciful God, receive our prayer.
Resurrecting God, you make us alive in Christ. Thank you for blessing us with faithful witnesses who now rest in you. Merciful God, receive our prayer.
We offer to you these petitions and those we carry in our hearts, trusting in your abundant and ever-present mercy. Amen.
SENDING God blesses us and sends us in mission to the world.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord’s face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord look upon you with favor and ☩ give you peace. Amen.
SENDING SONG: Lift High the Cross (#660)
