Prelude "Toccata of Alleluia, Hearts to Heaven" arr. Page C. Long

Karissa Raebel, organ

Welcome  Pastor Tim Klinkenberg


Ringing of the Bell 


Opening Hymn “Alleluia, Alleluia! Hearts to Heaven” (LSB 477)

verses 1 and 2
Alleluia, alleluia!
Hearts to heav’n and voices raise:
Sing to God a hymn of gladness,
Sing to God a hymn of praise;
He who on the cross a victim
For the world’s salvation bled—
Jesus Christ, the King of Glory,
Now is risen from the dead.

Alleluia, Christ is risen!
Death at last has met defeat:
See the ancient pow’rs of evil
In confusion and retreat;
Once He died, and once was buried:
Now He lives forevermore,
Jesus Christ, the world’s Redeemer,
Whom we worship and adore.

Invocation

Liturgist:     In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19b)
People:    Amen.

 

Confession of Sins

Liturgist:   “See what great love the Father has lavished on us,
People:    that we should be called children of God!
Liturgist:   And that is what we are!
People:    The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.
Liturgist:    Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known.
People:    But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
Liturgist:    All who have this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure.” (1 John 3:1-3)

silence for reflection

Liturgist:  Do you confess that you have sinned against God and against your neighbor?
People:    Almighty Father, we confess that we have sinned. We know that our sins grieve You. We deserve punishment for eternity, and we would receive that punishment, were it not for the grace of Your perfect plan: the sacrifice of your only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ. We ask for mercy, for the sake of Him, the Lamb that was slain.


Absolution

Liturgist:  “Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. But you know that He appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in Him is no sin.” (1 John 3:4-5)
As a fellow servant of Christ, I therefore announce to you the forgiveness of all your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
People:    Amen.



Hymn of Praise “Alleluia, Alleluia! Hearts to Heaven” (LSB 477)

verse 3
 ▲ Alleluia, alleluia!
Glory be to God on high:
Alleluia to the Savior
Who has gained the victory;
Alleluia to the Spirit,
Fount of love and sanctity!
Alleluia, alleluia
To the triune Majesty!


Epistle Reading 1 John 3:1-7 NIV

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.
Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.
Lector:    This is the Word of the Lord.
People:    Thanks be to God.

Anthem “Make A Joyful Noise”  

St. John's Kindergarten Choir


Children's Message


Holy Gospel Luke 24: 36-49NIV

36 While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38 He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”
40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet. 41 And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate it in their presence.
44 He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”
45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
Lector:    This is the Gospel of the Lord.
People:    Thanks be to God.



Kindergarten Song Medley
The congregation is invited to sing along with the children on these two Kindergarten songs.

 
“This Little Light" 

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Don’t let anyone blow it out, I’m gonna let it shine.
Don’t let anyone blow it out, I’m gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

“My God Is So Great”

My God is so great, so strong and so mighty!
There’s nothing my God cannot do!
My God is so great, so strong and so mighty!
There’s nothing my God cannot do!
The mountains are His, the rivers are His,
The stars are His handiwork too,
My God is so great, so strong, and so mighty!
There’s nothing my God cannot do! For you!


Message Pastor Tim Klinkenberg


 

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, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Prayers of the Church 

Each petition concludes with:
Liturgist:    Lord, in your mercy,
People:   Hear our prayer. 
 

Gathering of Our Tithes and Offerings 


Music at the Offering “Ha-la-la-le-lu-juh!”

The Lord's Prayer

Liturgist:     Hear us as we pray in His name and as He has taught us:
People:   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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory
forever and ever. Amen.



Benediction

Liturgist:    The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you.
The Lord look upon you with favor and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24–26)
People:       Amen.

Amen.

Prayers of the Church
April 14, 2024

Almighty God, You make known to us the path of life.

As Your Son opened the minds of the disciples to understand the Scriptures,
enable us, by Your Spirit, to hear them and to put Your Word into action,
to mark, learn, and inwardly digest what You teach us.

May we find patience and comfort in Your Word,
and hold onto the blessed hope of everlasting life.
Lord, in Your mercy,

Jesus Christ, our Teacher, lead us to walk by the Spirit and in the light.

Through Your gift of faith, may we bear fruit to love one another,
to approach You with confidence in prayer,
to trust that we will receive from You anything we ask in line with Your will,
and to find comfort in the Spirit You have given us.
Lord, in Your mercy,

God of all comfort, You have compassion on those who are afflicted.

Remember and have mercy on all those in need of Your healing and deliverance,
especially….

And those we name silently before You now…
Lord, in Your mercy,

Prince of Peace, give peace to our homes, to our classrooms, and to our world.

Let the forgiveness of sins reign among spouses, children, and grandchildren.
Let the forgiveness of sins reign among world leaders and those in authority.
Let the forgiveness of sins reign among teachers and students.

Protect those who serve in our armed forces,
and those who preserve order and integrity in our community.

Strengthen those who teach, especially those in our school and preschool at St. John’s,
that they may celebrate with You the growth and achievements of their students
in the latter part of the year.

Grant Your Spirit of wisdom, Your power of presence,
and Your assurance of reconciliation to those in need of peace.
Lord, in Your mercy,

Gracious God, mercifully grant us times of rest, refreshment, and renewal.

In the midst of busyness, You teach us to be still and to wait in silence.
As witnesses of Your Gospel and great love toward us,
calm and quiet our souls.

Give us moments of rest to renew us for the bold proclamation of Your Gospel,
and to be ready to invest time in listening and to share love with others in actions and truth.

In the name of Jesus we pray.
Amen.
