1 Corinthians 15:3–7
 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures,  that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,  and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.  Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep.  Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. (ESV)
Call to Worship
The Steadfast Love of the LORD
 Shout for joy in the LORD, O you righteous!
Praise befits the upright.
 Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre;
make melody to him with the harp of ten strings!
 Sing to him a new song;
play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.
 For the word of the LORD is upright,
and all his work is done in faithfulness.
 He loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.
 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made,
and by the breath of his mouth all their host.
 He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap;
he puts the deeps in storehouses.
 Let all the earth fear the LORD;
let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him! (ESV)
Prayer of Repentance
Almighty God, You have raised Jesus from death to life, and crowned Him Lord of all. We confess that we have not bowed before Him, or acknowledged His rule in our lives. We have gone along with the ways of the world, and failed to give Him glory. Forgive us and raise us from sin, that we may be Your faithful people, obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ, who rules the world and is head of the Church, His Body. In His name we pray, amen.
Heavenly Father, You have led us singing to the cross where we lay down all our burdens and see them vanish, where our mountains of guilt are leveled to a plain; may Christ’s work in the gospel be the ground of all our comfort, the comfort of all our afflictions, and the strength for our love and thankfulness. He took the cross before He took the crown, And we will forever praise You Lord. It is in Jesus' name we pray. Amen
