*The Opening Hymn # 634                 My Country ‘Tis of Thee

The Scripture Lesson

Joshua 4: 1-9

When the whole nation had finished crossing the Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua, “Choose twelve men from among the people, one from each tribe, and tell them to take up twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan from right where the priests stood and to carry them over with you and put them down at the place where you stay tonight.”

So Joshua called together the twelve men he had appointed from the Israelites, one from each tribe, and said to them, “Go over before the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of the Jordan.  Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, to serve as a sign among you.  In the future, when your children ask  you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord.  When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off.  These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.”

So the Israelites did as Joshua commanded them.  They took twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, as the Lord had told Joshua; and they carried them over with them to their camp, where they put them down.

Joshua set up the twelve stones that had been in the middle of the Jordan at the spot where the priests who carried the ark of the covenant had stood.  And they are there to this day.

I Corinthians 11: 23-26

For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you:  The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”  In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”  For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

This is the word of God for the people of God.

Thanks be to God.

And opened the life-gate that all may go in.

Chorus:  Praise the Lord… Praise the Lord!  Let the earth hear His voice

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Let the people rejoice.

O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son…

And give Him the glory…great things He hath done!

O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood…

To every believer the promise of God.

The vilest offender, who truly believes…

That moment from Jesus…a pardon receives.  (Chorus)

Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,

And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son.

But purer and higher and greater will be…

Our wonder, our victory, when Jesus we see.  (Chorus)

Easter Egg Hunt Update:

A big thank you to everyone who helped, prayed, and took part in preparing for this year’s Easter Egg Hunt.  Our goal this year was to reach 100 children and their families with the life changing message of Easter.  Since the beginning of March, you have been praying for the children who would find the eggs and their families, that at some point in their lives they would hear and answer the Father’s call. As it turns out, it rained on April 13, and our community event was canceled.  But that doesn’t mean that our prayers were in vain.

 The Pediatric unit at Henrico Doctor’s Hospital – Forest was thrilled to receive 600 of our prayer-packed eggs for the children who are spending this week and the Easter holiday weekend in the hospital instead of at home.  In the Neighborhood is a non-profit organization that ministers in Barton Heights.  They were not going to be able to provide an Easter outreach for the neighborhood children this year – until we contacted them.  We also gave them 600 eggs.

Many of our own have grandchildren who were looking forward to coming to our Easter Egg Hunt.  There are still plenty of eggs for you to take for them as you leave the service today. So you see, God is using those eggs to reach countless children and families that need the hope that Easter brings.  It’s not exactly the way we had planned, but God’s ways are oh, so much better!  Becky Ballos

Congregation Response (Unison)         Philippians 2: 5-11

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death- even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

 

This is the word of God for the people of God.

 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;

His faithfulness continues through all generations.

Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

This is the word of the Lord.
