Opening Prayer

*Opening Hymn Easter People, Raise Your Voices     UMH 304  

  *Responsive Reading      Psalm 23     

 Leader: The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

 All: He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters,

 Leader: He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake.

 All: Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your
staff, they comfort me.

 Leader: You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

 All: Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of
the Lord forever.     Amen.
