The Ringing of the Bells and The Welcome

Opening Hymn: Alleluia! Hearts to heaven (477)

Alleluia, alleluia! Hearts to heaven and voices raise:

Sing to God a hymn of gladness, sing to God 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 powers 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.

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!

Genesis 11:1-9

1 At first, the people of the whole world had only one language and used the same words. 2 As they wandered about in the East, they came to a plain in Babylonia and settled there. 3 They said to one another, “Come on! Let’s make bricks and bake them hard.” So they had bricks to build with and tar to hold them together. 4 They said, “Now let’s build a city with a tower that reaches the sky, so that we can make a name for ourselves and not be scattered all over the earth.”  5 Then the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which those men had built, 6 and he said, “Now then, these are all one people and they speak one language; this is just the beginning of what they are going to do. Soon they will be able to do anything they want! 7 Let us go down and mix up their language so that they will not understand one another.” 8 So the Lord scattered them all over the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 The city was called Babylon, because there the Lord mixed up the language of all the people, and from there he scattered them all

over the earth.

Reader:          This is the Word of the Lord.

People:          Thanks be to God!


Acts 2:1-11

1 When the day of Pentecost came, all the believers were gathered together in one place. 2Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there. 4They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.  5 There were Jews living in Jerusalem, religious people who had come from every country in the world. 6When they heard this noise, a large crowd gathered. They were all excited, because each one of them heard the believers speaking in his or her own language. 7In amazement and wonder they exclaimed, “These people who are talking like this are Galileans! 8How is it, then, that all of us hear them speaking in our own native languages? 9We are from Parthia, Media, and Elam; from Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia; from Pontus and Asia, 10from Phrygia and Pamphylia, from Egypt and the regions of Libya near Cyrene. Some of us are from Rome, 11both Jews and Gentiles converted to Judaism, and some of us are from Crete and Arabia—yet all of us hear them speaking in our own languages about the great things that God has done!”

Reader:          This is the Word of the Lord.

People:          Thanks be to God!


John 15:26-27, 16:4b-11

26 “The Helper will come—the Spirit, who reveals the truth about God and who comes from the Father. I will send him to you from the Father, and he will speak about me. 27 And you, too, will speak about me, because you have been with me from the very beginning.... 16:4 I did not tell you these things at the beginning, for I was with you. 5 But now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me where I am going. 6 And now that I have told you, your hearts are full of sadness. 7 But I am telling you the truth: it is better for you that I go away, because if I do not go, the Helper will not come to you. But if I do go away, then I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will prove people of the world wrong about sin and about righteousness and about judgement. 9 They are wrong about sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 they are wrong about righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me; 11 and they are wrong about judgement, because the ruler of this world has already been judged.

Pastor:            This is the Gospel of the Lord.

People:          Praise to You, O Christ.

Kids Sermon

Sermon Hymn: Rise Shine You people (825)

Rise, shine, you people! Christ the Lord has entered

Our human story; God in him is centered.

He comes to us, by death and sin surrounded

with grace unbounded.

See how he sends the pow’rs of evil reeling;

He brings us freedom, light and life and healing.

All men and women, who by guilt are driven, now are forgiven.

Come, celebrate; your banners high unfurling,

Your songs and prayers against the darkness hurling.

To all the world go out and tell the story of Jesus’ glory.

Tell how the Father sent the Son to save us.

Tell of the Song, who life and freedom gave us.

Tell how the Spirit calls from ev’ry nation God’s new creation.



The Lords Prayer

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

Espíritu de Dios, llena mi vida, llena mi alma, llena mi ser.

de tu presencia lléname, lléname,

de tu verdad, de tu amor.

Y lléname, lléname, lléname

de tu presencia lléname, lléname,

de tu verdad, de tu amor. Espíritu de Dios.

Oh Spi-rit of God, come fill my life,

come fill my soul, come fill me whole.

Oh Spi-rit of God, come fill my life,

come fill my soul, come fill me whole.

Come fill me now, fill me now, fill me now;

come with your presence, fill me now, fill me now;

come with your truth; come with your love.

Come fill me now, fill me now, fill me now;

Prayer of Thanksgiving

Blessed are You, Lord of heaven and earth, for You have had mercy on those whom You created and sent Your only-begotten Son into our flesh to bear our sin and be our Savior. With repentant joy, we receive the salvation accomplished for us by the all-availing sacrifice of His body and His blood on the cross. Gathered in the name and the remembrance of Jesus, we beg You, O Lord, to forgive, renew, and strengthen us with Your Word and Spirit. Grant us to faithfully eat His body and drink His blood as He bids us to in His own testament. Gather us together from the ends of the earth to celebrate, with all the faithful, the marriage feast of the Lamb in His kingdom, which has no end. Receive our prayers; deliver and preserve us. To You alone be all glory, honor, and worship, now and forever. Amen.

have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, You take away the sin of the world;

grant us peace.

Thank the Lord and sing His praise;

Post-Communion Prayer

We give thanks to You, almighty God, that You have refreshed us through this salutary gift, and we implore You, that of Your mercy, You would strengthen us in faith toward You and in fervent love toward one another; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.


Closing Hymn: Sent Forth By Gods Blessing (643)

Sent forth by God’s blessing, our true faith confessing,

The people of God from this dwelling take leave.

The supper is ended.  Oh 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 everyday 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!
