Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear heavenly Father, as I approach You in worship this day, I do so in the name of Your Son, my resurrected Lord and Savior. His blood has washed away my sins, and His life assures me that I too will live! Instill within my heart this day an even greater joy as I listen to Your Word, offer You my praise, and lay before You my petitions. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 91

First Reading: 

1 Peter 1:3-9

We have the hope of eternal life through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Even though we may have to endure various trials in this life, we may do so with confidence that we will receive by God’s grace the end of our faith—the salvation of our souls!

Second Reading: 

John 20:19-31

Jesus appeared to His disciples on Easter Sunday evening and again the following Sunday evening. He assured them of His resurrection and commissioned them to proclaim a message that gives life through His name.
