Leader: Hear is the good news which we have received, in which we stand,
and by which we are saved:
All: Christ died for our sins, was buried, was raised on the third day, and appeared
first to the women, then to Peter and the twelve, and then to many faithful
witnesses. We believe Jesus is the Christ, the Anointed One of God, the
firstborn of all creation, the firstborn from the dead, in whom all things hold
together, in whom the fullness of God was pleased to dwell by the power of the
Christ is the head of the body, the church, and by the blood of the cross

Invitation to Respond
We believe that experiencing God often leads to a response. We respond in many ways – by special times of
prayer, by publicly acknowledging our faith in Christ, or by becoming united with a community of faith in a
special way. Please listen to see how God is leading you to respond.

*Departing Hymn He Lives UMH, p. #310


*Congregational Choral Benediction Amazing Grace (vs. 1)

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see.
All are asked to hold hands and sing.
