Fourth Sunday of Easter 



Welcome and Announcements 

Ringing of the Bell 

(Please Stand) 

Thanksgiving for Baptism 

Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, the wellspring of grace, our Easter and our joy. 


Look, here is water! 

Here is our water of life! Alleluia! 

Immersed in the promises of baptism, let us give thanks for what God has done for us. 

We give you thanks, O God, for in the beginning your voice thundered over the deep and water became the essence of life. 

Adam and Eve beheld Eden’s verdant rivers. 

The ark carried your creation through the flood into a new day. 

Miriam led the dancing as your people passed through the sea 

into freedom’s land. 

In a desert pool the Ethiopian official entered your boundless baptismal life. 

Look, here is water! 

Here is our water of life! Alleluia! 

At the river your beloved Son was baptized by John and anointed with the Holy Spirit. By the baptism of Jesus’ death and resurrection you opened the floodgates of your reconciling love, freeing us to live as Easter people. 

We rejoice with glad hearts, giving all honor and praise to you, through the risen Christ, our source of living water, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen. 


Look, here is water! 

Here is our water of life! Alleluia!

Hymn # 785 “When Peace Like a River” 

L: Together with the whole church, we confess our faith: 

The Nicene Creed 

We believe in one God, 

the Father, the Almighty, 

maker of heaven and earth, 

of all that is, seen and unseen. 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, 

the only Son of God, 

eternally begotten of the Father, 

God from God, Light from Light, 

true God from true God, 

begotten, not made, 

of one Being with the Father; 

through him all things were made. 

For us and for our salvation 

he came down from heaven, 

was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary 

and became truly human. 

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; 

he suffered death and was buried. 

On the third day he rose again 

in accordance with the scriptures; 

he ascended into heaven 

and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, 

and his kingdom will have no end. 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, 

who proceeds from the Father and the Son,* 

who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, 

who has spoken through the prophets. 

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. 

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. 

We look for the resurrection of the dead, 

and the life of the world to come. Amen. 

The Prayers 

L: . . .God of Grace 

C: Hear our prayer. 


The Peace 

L: The peace of Christ be with you always. 

C: And also with you. 

L: You may share the peace with one another. 


Offering Hymn #860 “I’m So Glad, Jesus Lifted Me” 

(The offering is collected as the hymn is sung. Please stand on the last verse as the offering is brought forward.) 

L: Let us pray, 

All: Risen One, you call us to believe and bear fruit. May the gifts that we offer here be signs of your abiding love. Form us to be your wit-nesses in the world, through Jesus Christ, our true vine. Amen. 

The Lord’s Prayer: (Sung) 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen 


P: Alleluia! Christ is risen! 

Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia! 

The God of resurrection power, the Christ of unending joy, and the Spirit of Easter hope bless you now and always. 

Hymn # 380 “Hallelujah! Jesus Lives” 


L: Alleluia! Go in peace. Rejoice and be glad. 

Thanks be to God. Alleluia!
