PRELUDE                                                                          Celeste Lundblom

WELCOME

PROCESSIONAL HYMN
           
“Thine Is the Glory”                                       HFG 291

Thine is the glory, Risen, conquering Son;
Endless is the victory Thou o’er death hast won.
Angels in bright raiment Rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded graveclothes Where Thy body lay.

Chorus:
Thine is the glory, Risen, conquering Son;
Endless is the victory Thou o’er death hast won.

Lo! Jesus meets us, Risen from the tomb;
Lovingly He greets us, Scatters fear and gloom.
Let His church with gladness Hymns of triumph sing,
For her Lord now liveth: Death hath lost its sting.

Chorus:
No more we doubt Thee, Glorious Prince of life!
Life is naught without Thee: Aid us in our strife.
Make us more than conquerors,
Through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan To Thy home above.

Chorus:

ANNOUNCEMENTS

*INVOCATION
P:         In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
C:        Amen.

*CONFESSION OF SINS
P:         Our help is in the Name of the Lord.
C:        Who made heaven and earth.
P:         Brothers and sisters in Christ:  Scripture clearly reveals that we are all born children of a fallen humanity; Scripture also teaches that if we say that we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
C:        But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Silence for reflection and self-examination

P:         Heavenly Father,
C:        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.

*ABSOLUTION

*INTROIT     from Psalm 139
P:         O Lord, You have searched me and you know me;
C:        You perceive my thoughts from afar.
P:         You discern my going out and my lying down;
C:        You are familiar with all my ways.
P:         Where can I go from Your Spirit?
C:        Where can I flee from Your presence?
P:         If I go up to the heavens, You are there;
C:        if I make my bed in the depths, You are there.
P:         If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
C:        if I settle on the far side of the seas,
P:         even there Your hand will guide me,
C:        Your right hand will hold me fast.

*GLORIA PATRI
(sung by the congregation)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen.  Amen.

*PRAYER OF THE DAY
(in unison)
God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, as You sent upon the disciples the promised gift of the Holy Spirit, look upon Your Church and open our hearts to the power of the Spirit.  Kindle in us the fire of Your love, and strengthen our lives for service in Your kingdom; through Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.

THE WORD OF GOD

FIRST LESSON
                   Ezekiel 37:1-10
37 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley; it was full of bones. And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold, they were very dry. And he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the Lord.”
So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a sound, and behold, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them. But there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.

SECOND LESSON              Acts 2:1-21
When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, 11 both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” 12 And all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13 But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.”
14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them: “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words. 15 For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:
17 “ ‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions,
and your old men shall dream dreams;
18 even on my male servants and female servants
in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;
20 the sun shall be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood,
before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.
21 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

HYMN
           
“Spirit of the Living God”                              HFG 155

Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me.
Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me.
Melt me, mold me, Fill me, use me.
            Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me.

*HOLY GOSPEL                 John 16:4-11
“I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you. But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

SERMON
      Pastor Steve Lundblom

*APOSTLES' CREED
I believe in God the Father, Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
I believe 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 there He shall 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.

OFFERTORY HYMN
            “Be Thou My Vision”                                     HFG 468

  Online Giving Click Here   ---   >   Offering Plate Small

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Nought be all else to me, save that Thou art -
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always;
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

*DOXOLOGY
Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him all
creatures here below; Praise Him above ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  Amen.

*PRAYERS OF THE CHURCH
*SACRAMENT OF THE ALTAR
P:         The Lord be with you.
C:        And also with you.
P:         Lift up your hearts.
C:        We lift them up unto the Lord.
P:         Let us give thanks to the Lord, our God.
C:        It is good and right so to do.
P:         It is truly good and right that we should at all times and in all places give You thanks, O Lord, holy Father, almighty and everlasting God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who
            promised that wherever two or three come together in His name, there He is with them to shepherd His flock till He
            comes again in glory.

*THE WORDS OF INSTITUTION
P:         In the night in which He was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to His disciples, saying: “Take and eat; this is My body, given for you. Do
            this for the remembrance of Me.”
            Again, after supper, He took the cup, gave thanks and gave it for all to drink, saying: “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, shed for you for the forgiveness of sin. Do this for the
            remembrance of Me.”
*THE LORD’S PRAYER   (In unison)
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.

RECESSIONAL HYMN
            “Lead On, O King Eternal”                            HFG 595

Lead on, O King Eternal,
The day of march has come;
Henceforth in fields of conquest
Thy tents shall be our home.
Through days of preparation
Thy grace has made us strong,
And now O King Eternal,
We lift our battle song.

Lead on, O King Eternal,
Till sin's fierce war shall cease,
And holiness shall whisper
The sweet amen of peace;
For not with swords’ loud clashing,
Nor roll of stirring drums –
With deeds of love and mercy,
The heavenly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King Eternal,
We follow not with fears;
For gladness breaks like morning
Where'er Thy face appears.
Thy cross is lifted o'er us;
We journey in its light:
The crown awaits the conquest:
Lead on O God of might.
