The Third Sunday Of Easter

The Ringing of the Bells and The Welcome

Opening Hymn: All hail the power of Jesus Name (549)

All hail the pow'r of Jesus' name!

Let angels prostrate fall;

Bring forth the royal diadem

And crown Him Lord of all.

Bring forth the royal diadem

And crown Him Lord of all.

Crown Him, ye martyrs of our God

Who from His altar call;

Extol the Stem of Jesse's rod

And crown Him Lord of all.

Extol the Stem of Jesse's rod

And crown Him Lord of all.

Ye seed of Israel's chosen race,

Ye ransomed from the fall,

Hail Him who saves you by His grace

And crown Him Lord of all.

Hail Him who saves you by His grace

And crown Him Lord of all.

Hail Him, ye heirs of David's line,

Whom David Lord did call,

The God incarnate, man divine,

And crown Him Lord of all.

The God incarnate, Man divine,

And crown Him Lord of all.


Pastor:            In the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

People: Amen.


Confession and Forgiveness

Pastor:            If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

People:          But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


(Silent Prayer) (Momento de Oración Personal)


Pastor:  Señor, ten piedad de nosotros.

People:         Señor, ten piedad de nosotros.


Pastor:           Cristo, ten piedad de nosotros.

People:         Cristo, ten piedad de nosotros.


Pastor:           Señor, ten piedad de nosotros.

People:         Señor, ten piedad de nosotros.


Pastor:            Let us then confess our sins to God:

People:          Most merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean. We have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.


Pastor:                Almighty God in His mercy has given His Son            to die for you and for His sake forgives you all           your sins. As a called and ordained servant of           Christ, and by His authority, I therefore forgive           you all your sins in the name of the Father                 and  of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

      People:         Amen.

      Response: Thine The Amen Thine The Praise (680)

      Thine the amen Thine the praise

      Alleluias angels raise

      Thine the everlasting head

      Thine the breaking of the bread

      Thine the glory Thine the story

      Thine the harvest then the cup

      Thine the vineyard then the cup is lifted up, lifted up.

      Thine the life eternally

      Thine the promise let there be

      Thine the vision Thine the tree

      All the earth on bended knee

      Gone the nailing gone the railing

      Gone the pleading gone the cry

      Gone the sighing gone the dying what was loss lifted high.

      Thine the glory in the night

      No more dying only light

      Thine the river Thine the tree

      Then the Lamb eternally

      Then the holy holy holy Celebration jubilee

      Thine the splendor Thine the brightness only Thee only Thee.


      The Prayer of the Day  (La Oración del Día)

      Risen Jesus, you filled your disciples with boldness and fresh hope when they needed most; give us that same hope and strengthen us to proclaim your risen life to the glory of God the Father. AMEN


      The Scripture Readings  (see insert)

     (After each reading:)

      Reader: This is the Word of the Lord.

      People: Thanks be to God!


      Acts 2:14a, 36-41

        14 Then Peter stood up with the other eleven apostles and in a loud voice began to speak to the crowd:...  36 “All the people of Israel, then, are to know for sure that this Jesus, whom you crucified, is the one that God has made Lord and Messiah!” 37 When the people heard this, they were deeply troubled and said to Peter and the other apostles, “What shall we do, brothers?” 38 Peter said to them, “Each one of you must turn away from your sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins will be forgiven; and you will receive God’s gift, the Holy Spirit. 39 For God’s promise was made to you and your children, and to all who are far away—all whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter made his appeal to them and with many other words he urged them, saying, “Save yourselves from the punishment coming on this wicked people!” 41 Many of them believed his message and were baptized, and about 3,000 people were added to the group that day.

      1 Peter 1:17-25

        17 You call him Father, when you pray to God, who judges all people by the same standard, according to what each one has done; so then, spend the rest of your lives here on earth in reverence for him. 18 For you know what was paid to set you free from the worthless manner of life handed down by your ancestors. It was not something that can be destroyed, such as silver or gold; 19 it was the costly sacrifice of Christ, who was like a lamb without defect or flaw. 20 He had been chosen by God before the creation of the world and was revealed in these last days for your sake. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from death and gave him glory; and so your faith and hope are fixed on God. 22 Now that by your obedience to the truth you have purified yourselves and have come to have a sincere love for your fellow-believers, love one another earnestly with all your heart. 23For through the living and eternal word of God you have been born again as the children of a parent who is immortal, not mortal. As the scripture says: “All human beings are like grass, and all their glory is like wild flowers. The grass withers, and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord remains for ever.” This word is the Good News that was proclaimed to you.

       Luke 24:13-35 

        13 On that same day two of Jesus’ followers were going to a village named Emmaus, about 7 miles from Jerusalem, 14 and they were talking to each other about all the things that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them; 16 they saw him, but somehow did not recognize him. 17 Jesus said to them, “What are you talking about to each other, as you walk along?”  They stood still, with sad faces. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only visitor in Jerusalem who doesn’t know the things that have been happening there these last few days?”  19 “What things?” he asked.  “The things that happened to Jesus of Nazareth,” they answered. “This man was a prophet and was considered by God and by all the people to be powerful in everything he said and did. 20 Our chief priests and rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and he was crucified. 21 And we had hoped that he would be the one who was going to set Israel free! Besides all that, this is now the third day since it happened. 22 Some of the women of our group surprised us; they went at dawn to the tomb, 23 but could not find his body. They came back saying they had seen a vision of angels who told them that he is alive. 24 Some of our group went to the tomb and found it exactly as the women had said, but they did not see him.”  25 Then Jesus said to them, “How foolish you are, how slow you are to believe everything the prophets said! 26 Was it not necessary for the Messiah to suffer these things and then to enter his glory?” 27 And Jesus explained to them what was said about himself in all the Scriptures, beginning with the books of Moses and the writings of all the prophets.  28 As they came near the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther; 29 but they held him back, saying, “Stay with us; the day is almost over and it is getting dark.” So he went in to stay with them. 30 He sat down to eat with them, took the bread, and said the blessing; then he broke the bread and gave it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he disappeared from their sight. 32 They said to each other, “Wasn’t it like a fire burning in us when he talked to us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”  33 They got up at once and went back to Jerusalem, where they found the eleven disciples gathered together with the others 34 and saying, “The Lord is risen indeed! He has appeared to Simon!”  35 The two then explained to them what had happened on the road, and how they had recognized the Lord when he broke the bread.


      The Apostle’s 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.

Closing Hymn: Sent Forth By Gods blessing (643)

Sent forth by God’s blessing,

Our true faith confessing,

The people of God from His dwelling take leave.

The service is ended.

O now be extended

The fruits of this service in all who believe.

The seed of His teaching,

Receptive souls reaching,

Shall blossom in action for God and for all.

His grace did invite us,

His love shall unite us

To work for God’s kingdom and answer His call.


With praise and thanksgiving

To God ever-living,

The tasks of our ev’ryday life we will face.

Our faith ever sharing,

In love ever caring,

Embracing His children of each tribe and race.

With Your feast You feed us,

With Your light now lead us;

Unite us as one in this life that we share.

Then may all the living

With praise and thanksgiving

Give honor to Christ and His name that we bear.
