Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

PSALM 118:17

I shall not die but live and declare the works of the Lord

GOSPEL LESSON: Mark 16:1-8

HE IS RISEN! HE LIVES!!!

16 The Sabbath day ended. Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices. They were going to use them for Jesus’ body. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, they were on their way to the tomb. It was just after sunrise. 3 They asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance to the tomb?”


4 Then they looked up and saw that the stone had been rolled away. The stone was very large. 5 They entered the tomb. As they did, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe. He was sitting on the right side. They were alarmed.


6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. But he has risen! He is not here! See the place where they had put him. 7 Go! Tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him. It will be just as he told you.’ ”



TEACHING: Choose HOPE and NEW LIFE with the RISEN JESUS Our Lord

Reflect the LIGHT of CHRIST in OUR Lives.


PRAYERS of GRATITUDE: Thank God for his blessings in your life.

PRAYERS FOR OTHERS: Pray for God to guide and care for those you love.

Leader: Let us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God:


O GOD, We are VERY SORRY that we have sinned against you and for all the wrongs we have done and the good we have not done.


Take a moment in silence to share your confession to God with these words in your heart:


Especially I confess_______________________________.


Everyone: Forgive us for Jesus' sake, and grant us strength and wisdom to amend our lives. Amen.
