Prelude                                                                  Christ Is Risen Alleluia

Opening Prayer

Hymn                                                       “He Lives”                                      #310

1. I serve a risen Saviour, He's in the world today

         I know that He is living, whatever foes may say

         I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer

         And just the time I need Him He's always near


         He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today

         He walks with me and talks with me

         Along life's narrow way

         He lives (He lives), He lives (He lives), Salvation to impart

         You ask me how I know He lives?

         He lives within my heart

2..In all the world around me I see His loving care

         And though my heart grows weary I never will despair

         I know that He is leading, through all the stormy blast

         The day of His appearing will come at last


3. Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian Lift up your voice and sing

         Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ, the King

         The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find

         None other is so loving, so good and kind

 The Morning Prayer

 The Lord’s Prayer

The Affirmation of Faith                                   The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;* the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick 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

Dedication of the Offering“Give Thanks”         Henry Smith

Give thanks with a grateful heart, Give thanks to the Holy One,

Give thanks because He’s given Jesus Christ, His Son.

And now let the weak say, “I am strong,” Let the poor say, “I am rich because of what the Lord has done for us.” Give thanks.

Scripture                                                                         John 21:7-14

7Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It’s the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard it was the Lord, he wrapped his coat around himself (for he was naked) and jumped into the water.

8The other disciples followed in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they weren’t far from shore, only about one hundred yards.

9When they landed, they saw a fire there, with fish on it, and some bread.

10Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish that you’ve just caught.”

11Simon Peter got up and pulled the net to shore. It was full of large fish, one hundred fifty-three of them. Yet the net hadn’t torn, even with so many fish.

12Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples could bring themselves to ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord.

13Jesus came, took the bread, and gave it to them. He did the same with the fish.

14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Hymn†                                  “Thy Holy Wings, O Savior               #502

1 Thy holy wings, O Savior,

spread gently over me,

and let me rest securely

through good and ill in thee.

Oh, be my strength and portion,

my rock and hiding place,

and let my ev’ry moment

be lived within thy grace.


2 Oh, wash me in the waters

of Noah’s cleansing flood.

Give me a willing spirit,

a heart both clean and good.

Oh, take into thy keeping

thy children great and small,

and while we sweetly slumber,

enfold us one and all.
