Death of death, and hell’s de- struc- tion,
All:Have mercy on us, O God, in your loving-kindness. In your great compassion, cleanse us from our sin. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.
Do not cast us from your presence, or take your holy spirit from us. Restore to us the joy of your salvation and sustain us with your bountiful spirit.
Lord, have mercy on us and hear us as we silently confess.
One:Hear the good news! Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us.
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation, the old life has gone; and a new life begun. Know that you are forgiven and be at peace. All: Amen.

6 So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 He replied, “It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority.
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
9 When he had said this, as they were watching, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight. 10 While he was going and they were gazing up toward heaven, suddenly two men in white robes stood by them.
11 They said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up toward heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”
12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey away. 13 When they had entered the city, they went to the room upstairs where they were staying,
Peter, and John, and James, and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James.
14 All these were constantly devoting themselves to prayer, together with certain women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, as well as his brothers.
One: The Word of the Lord. All: Thanks be to God.
Sermon “Extend Your Reach” Pastor Desiree A. Lawson
“They were constantly devoting themselves to prayer...” (Acts 1:14a)
“Lord, is this the time when you will restore Israel?” (Acts 1:6b)
Sacrament of Holy Communion
Invitation to the Lord’s Table The Great Prayer of Thanksgiving
Leader: The Lord be with you. People: And also with you. Leader: Lift up your hearts. People: We lift them to the Lord.
Leader : Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. People: It is right to give our thanks and praise.
Leader: … Therefore, we praise You, joining our voices with the choirs of heaven and with all the faithful of every time and place, who forever sing to the glory of Your name:
Unison: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory, Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
Leader: … Great is the mystery of faith. People: Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again.
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 debts,
as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s 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 to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the universal church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen
