Worship Focus for Easter Sunday, April 11th

 

Greetings.

 

Many of us are still buoyed by the joy of our Easter service! What a privilege and a blessing it was to gather online this past Sunday and proclaim what has been at the core of the Christian faith for generations: that Jesus Christ is risen...he is risen indeed! After this past year we have had it is even more powerful to proclaim God’s promise that life and hope prevail!

This week we begin a sermon series entitled, “Encore!” as we profile different followers of Jesus that played a part in the post resurrection movement that became Christianity. While the world thought that things had come to an end with Jesus’ crucifixion, there was in fact much more to come! I hope you will have your bibles handy and make it a priority to be with us these next several weeks as we seek God’s wisdom in exploring who we are and what it looks like to live as God’s resurrection people!.

Just a reminder that we will be having an in-person worship service in the courtyard of our church THIS Sunday, April 11th at 11:00am. Please RSVP to the church office if you are interested in joining us: office@fpcl.us

 

Grace & Peace,
Steve

Sunday's Message:
It's not over - Pastor Josh Jonas

This week's Scripture:

Acts 1:12-26
Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a sabbath day’s journey away. When they had entered the city, they went to the room upstairs where they were staying, Peter, and John, and James, and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. All these were constantly devoting themselves to prayer, together with certain women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, as well as his brothers.

In those days Peter stood up among the believers (together the crowd numbered about one hundred and twenty people) and said, ‘Friends, the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit through David foretold concerning Judas, who became a guide for those who arrested Jesus— for he was numbered among us and was allotted his share in this ministry.’(Now this man acquired a field with the reward of his wickedness; and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his bowels gushed out. This became known to all the residents of Jerusalem, so that the field was called in their language Hakeldama, that is, Field of Blood.) ‘For it is written in the book of Psalms,
“Let his homestead become desolate,
and let there be no one to live in it”;
and
“Let another take his position of overseer.”
So one of the men who have accompanied us throughout the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John until the day when he was taken up from us—one of these must become a witness with us to his resurrection.’ So they proposed two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also known as Justus, and Matthias. Then they prayed and said, ‘Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us which one of these two you have chosen to take the place in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.’ And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles.

WELCOME

HYMN OF CELEBRATION: #108 Christ is Alive! (vs. 1, 2 & 5)

 

Vs. 1 Christ is alive! Let Christians sing.
The cross stands empty to the sky. Let streets and homes with praises ring. Love, drowned in death, shall never die.

Vs. 2 Christ is alive! No longer bound to distant years in Palestine.
But saving, healing, here and now, And touching every place and time.

Vs. 5 Christ is alive, and comes to bring good news to this and every age,
Till earth and sky and ocean ring with joy, with justice, love and praise.

HYMN OF DEDICATION: Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee (Vss. 1-3)


Vs. 1 Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, Opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; Drive the gloom of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness Fill us with the light of day.

Vs. 2 All Thy works with joy surround Thee, Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee, Center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, Flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowering fountain, Call us to rejoice in Thee.

Vs. 3 Mortals, join the happy chorus Which the morning stars began;
Love divine is reigning o’er us, Joining all in heaven’s plan.
Ever singing, march we onward, Victors in the midst of strife,
Joyful music leads us sunward In the triumph song of life.
