Fifth Sunday in Lent

The Presbyterian Church

142 N. 4th Street, Coshocton, OH 43812

Pastor Karen Crawford

Caroline Heading, Pianist


Prelude                                “In the Garden”


Opening Sentences

Thus says the Lord: “I will put my breath within you, and you shall live.”

In gratitude, we praise the Giver of Life.

Jesus says: “I am the resurrection and the life.

In gratitude, we praise the Source of our Being.

We gather to worship the One who frees us from the grave and stirs dry bones to life.

Spirit, come and enliven our worship!

Call to Confession

Prayer of Confession

Holy One, we have set our minds on wrong things—on selfish gain, not generous service; on pursuits that distract, not inspire; on tasks that diminish, rather than give, life.  We long to set our minds on eternal things—on your way of mercy and compassion; on paths that lead to justice and peace; on living as people of hope. Spirit of God, dwell in us. Give us grace when we fall short, transform our hearts and renew our minds, and set us free to follow you faithfully.

Assurance of Pardon

Message       “I Am the Resurrection and the Life”               Pastor Karen
