Confession of Sin

Worship Leader: You are the people whom I formed for myself that might declare my praise.

Congregation: We did not call on you, but we have been weary of you.

Worship Leader: You have not brought me your offerings, or honored me with your sacrifices.

Congregation: We have not brought you gifts, or satisfied you with our sacrifices.

Worship Leader: You have burdened me with your sins; you have wearied me with your iniquities.

Congregation: Our first father sinned, and our mediators transgressed against you.

(Isaiah 43:21–27)

Forgiveness of Sin

Worship Leader: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Congregation: According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Worship Leader: In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith-more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire-may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Congregation: Though you have not seen him, you love him.

All: Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory. (1 Peter 1:3–8)

“In Christ Alone” | Hymn of Assurance

Verse 1:

In Christ alone my hope is found

He is my light my strength my song

This Cornerstone this solid Ground

Firm thro’ the fiercest

Drought and storm

What heights of love

What depths of peace

When fears are stilled

When strivings cease

My Comforter my All in All

Here in the love of Christ I stand

Verse 2:

In Christ alone who took on flesh

Fullness of God in helpless babe

This gift of love and righteousness

Scorn’d by the ones he came to save

Till on that cross as Jesus died

The wrath of God was satisfied

For every sin on Him was laid

Here in the death of Christ I live

Verse 3:

There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious day

Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory

Sin's curse has lost its grip on me

For I am His and He is mine

Bo’t with th’precious blood of Christ

Verse 4:

No guilt in life no fear in death

This is the power of Christ in me

From life's first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand

Till He returns or calls me home

Here in the pow’r of Christ I'll stand

Thanking God for What He Has Done



O risen Christ ascended Lord

All praise to Thee let earth accord

Who art, while endless ages run,

With Father, and the Spirit one.

Giving Our Tithes and Offerings

Consider praying for and giving to the efforts of the North American Mission Board as they seek to reach the unreached with the gospel of Jesus Christ here in America. Throughout the month of April, we will be collecting contributions for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, which helps to fund the efforts of NAMB. You can use the Annie Armstrong offering envelopes located on the table in front of the bulletin board in the foyer for any funds you’d like to designate to this cause. Checks can be made out to Calvary with “Annie” in the memo line. You can learn more about the North American Mission Board at and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering at

“Because He Lives” | Easter Hymn

Verse 1:

I believe in the Son

I believe in the Risen One

I believe I overcome

By the power of His blood


Amen amen

I'm alive I'm alive

Because He lives

Amen amen

Let my song join the one

That never ends

Because He lives

Verse 2:

I was dead in the grave

I was covered in sin and shame

I heard mercy call my name

He rolled the stone away


Because He lives

I can face tomorrow

Because He lives

Ev'ry fear is gone

I know He holds my life

My future in His hand


Scripture Reading

"When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they could go and anoint him. Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they went to the tomb at sunrise. They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb for us?” Looking up, they noticed that the stone—which was very large—had been rolled away. When they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side; they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he told them. “You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they put him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you to Galilee; you will see him there just as he told you.’ ” They went out and ran from the tomb, because trembling and astonishment overwhelmed them. And they said nothing to anyone, since they were afraid." Mark 16:1–8 (CSB)

Pastoral Prayer

Sermon: “He Has Risen” | Brian Albert


“Jesus Paid It All” | Communion Hymn

Verse 1:

And I hear the Savior say

Thy strength indeed is small

Child of weakness watch and pray

Find in Me thine all in all


'Cause Jesus paid it all

All to Him I owe

Sin had left a crimson stain

He washed it white as snow

Verse 2:

Lord now indeed I find

Thy pow'r and Thine alone

Can change the leper's spots

And melt the heart of stone

Verse 3:

And when before the throne

I stand in Him complete

Jesus died my soul to save

My lips shall still repeat


Oh praise the One

Who paid my debt

And raised this life up

From the dead
