Prelude

Welcome and Announcements 

Introit 

Call to Worship (from the Mennonite Church Canada website, used with permission, inspired by John 20 and 21) 

We are here today because the weeping Mary of Magdala once said:

“I have seen the Lord!”

We are here because Jesus still comes into our locked spaces and says:

“Peace be with you. Receive the Holy Spirit.”

We are here today like doubting Thomas who finally cried:

“My Lord and my God.”

We are here like Peter, tempted to forget the call of Jesus:

“I’m going fishing.”

We’re here this morning because of Jesus, who asks us face-to-face:

“Do you truly love me?”

We gather here to whisper timidly.

“Yes, Lord, you know that we love you.”

We are here as a congregation only

because many faithful disciples have listened to Jesus’ words:

“Do not be afraid. Do not be afraid!

Go and tell, ‘Jesus has been raised!”
