We are blessed by your presence—may you find peace and joy in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Please advise us of your visit and ask for a “First Time Visitor Bulletin” which briefly explains the communion service.  We desire your visit to be peaceful and spiritual, let us know if you need anything.  Please join our church family in the Parish Hall after the service for fellowship, drinks, and food.

Prelude        Jesus Christ is Risen Today                            Mitchell-Wallace/Head


(Psalm 139:18b) When I awake, I am still with thee. Hallelujah. (verses 5b, 6) Thou hast laid thine hand upon me. Hallelujah. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.(verse 1-2a) O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising.


(Psalm 76:8b, 9a) The earth feared, and was still, when God arose to judgment. Hallelujah.


Anthem     Alleluia! Alleluia!                                                       Sullivan/Shephard

Hymn 92, the poem by the Anglican priest/bishop Christopher Wordsworth and tune by Arthur Sullivan (of “Gilbert and Sullivan” operettas) is heard in an arrangement by Richard Shephard (b.1949), choral and opera composer who is Chamberlain of York Minster and music faculty of the University of York.

Communion Anthem   Festival Canticle: Worthy is Christ   Richard Hillert

“Dignus est agnus” (Worthy is the Lamb) first appeared in Lutheran service books as an alternative canticle. The poet John W. Arthur adapted this poem and created a new canticle in 1970, “Worthy is Christ.” Richard Hillert (1923-2010), former Concordia University Chicago music professor, composed his setting of this canticle in 1976.

Postlude    Crown Him with Many Crowns                      Mitchell-Wallace/Head

The Processional and Gradual Hymns are translations of the 6th century Latin poem “Salve festa dies” by Venantius Fortunatus, an Italian who became a French priest and bishop. This hymn has had various English translations going back to that of Archbishop Cranmer in 1544 during the time of Henry VIII.
