I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will never die! I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live a new life! I have come to bring the truth; I have come to bring you life. If you believe, then you will live! In my Word all men will come to know it is love which makes the spirit grow. Keep in mind the things that I have said; remember me in the breaking of the bread. Hallelujah! I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live a brand new life, through Jesus Christ!

ANTHEM: My Tribute by Andrae Crouch/arr. by Paul Langford; Miles Mineer, bass solo; Julie Metz, violin
How can I say thanks for the things you have done for me? Things so undeserved, yet you give to prove your love for me. The voices of a million angels could not express my gratitude. All that I am and ever hope to be I owe it all to thee. To God be the glory, for the things he has done. With his blood he has saved me, with his power he has raised me. Just let me live my life, let it be pleasing, Lord, to thee. And if I gain any praise, let it go to Calvary.
HYMN: We Know That Christ Is Raised [Engelberg]
RESPONSE: The God of Peace by John A. Behnke; Julie Metz, violin
The God of peace, who raised with power the Shepherd of the sheep, go with you from this place and hour, your path to bless and keep. May He equip you with the grace to know and do His will, to meet each challenge you may face with faith and love and skill. [Stephen P. Starke]
