Worship Service for April 5, 2020

April 5, 2020

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.

Let us pray.
We praise you, O God, for redeeming the world through our Savior Jesus Christ. Today he entered the holy city in triumph and was proclaimed messiah and king by those who spread garments and branches along his way. Bless these branches and those who carry them. Grant us grace to follow our Lord in the way of the cross, so that, joined to his death and resurrection, we enter into life with you; through the same Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

The assisting minister addresses the assembly.
Let us go forth in peace,
in the name of Christ. Amen.

PROCESSIONAL HYMN   ELW 344    All glory, laud, and honor

            All glory, laud, and honor to you, redeemer, king,
            to whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring.

1          You are the king of Israel and David's royal Son,
            now in the Lord's name coming, our King and Blessed One.  Refrain

2          The company of angels are praising you on high;
            creation and all mortals in chorus make reply.  Refrain

3          The multitude of pilgrims with palms before you went;
            our praise and prayer and anthems before you we present.  Refrain

4          To you, before your passion, they sang their hymns of praise.
            To you, now high exalted, our melody we raise.  Refrain

5          Their praises you accepted; accept the prayers we bring,
            great author of all goodness, O good and gracious King.  Refrain

The Grace or our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all
And also with you

Everlasting God, in your endless love for the human race you sent our Lord Jesus Christ to take on our nature and to suffer death on the cross. In your mercy enable us to share in his obedience to your will and in the glorious victory of his resurrection, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

FIRST READING: Isaiah 50:4-9a
4The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of a teacher,
that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word.
Morning by morning he wakens— wakens my ear
            to listen as those who are taught.
5The Lord GOD has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious,
            I did not turn backward.
6I gave my back to those who struck me,
            and my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard;
I did not hide my face from insult and spitting.

7The Lord GOD helps me;  therefore I have not been disgraced;
therefore I have set my face like flint,
            and I know that I shall not be put to shame; 8he who vindicates me is near.
Who will contend with me? Let us stand up together.
Who are my adversaries? Let them confront me.
9It is the Lord GOD who helps me; who will declare me guilty?

SECOND READING: Philippians 2:5-11
5Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,
            6who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God
                        as something to be exploited,
                7but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave,
                        being born in human likeness.
            And being found in human form, 8he humbled himself
                        and became obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross.

                9Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name
                        that is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus
                        every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
                11and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
                        to the glory of God the Father.

GOSPEL: Matthew 21:1-11
1When they had come near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2saying to them, "Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to me. 3If anyone says anything to you, just say this, 'The Lord needs them.' And he will send them immediately." 4This took place to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet, saying,
                5"Tell the daughter of Zion,
            Look, your king is coming to you,
                        humble, and mounted on a donkey,
                        and on a colt, the foal of a donkey."
6The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them; 7they brought the donkey and the colt, and put their cloaks on them, and he sat on them. 8A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,
            "Hosanna to the Son of David!
                        Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
            Hosanna in highest heaven!"
10When he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was in turmoil, asking, "Who is this?" 11The crowds were saying, "This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee."

Kid’s Message


Hymn: The Palms
1 O'er all the way green palms and blossoms gay
Are strewn this day in festive preparation,
Where Jesus comes, to wipe our tears away,
E'en now the throng to welcome Him prepare.
Join all and sing His name declare,
Let ev'ry voice resound with acclamation,
Hosanna! Praised be the Lord!
Bless Him, who cometh to bring us salvation!
2 His word goes forth, and people by its might
Once more their freedom gain from degradation,
Humanity doth give to each his right,
While those in darkness find restored the light. [Refrain]
3 Sing and rejoice, O blest Jerusalem,
Of all thy sons sing the emancipation,
Thro’ boundless love, the Christ of Bethlehem
Brings faith the hope to thee forevermore. [Refrain]
Apostles Creed:
C    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 holy catholic Church,
            the communion of saints,
            the forgiveness of sins,
            the resurrection of the body,
            and the life everlasting.   Amen
Prayers of the People



Please be sure to have the wafer or bread if you choose laid out in front of you.  As well is you have wine or juice present that it is also in front of you during the communion liturgy.  Once the liturgy is complete I will say, “The Body of Christ given for you.”  We will then eat together.  The same for the drink. 

Lord’s Prayer
C  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 trespasses,
                         as we forgive those who trespass against us;
            and lead us not into temptation,
                        but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
                        forever and ever. Amen
Hymn ELW 536: God BE with You Till We Meet Again

God be with you till we meet again;
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep in love enfold you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus’ feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again!
Holy wings securely hide you,
Daily manna still provide you;
God be with you till we meet again!   Refrain
God be with you till we meet again!
When life’s perils thick confound you,
Put His arms unfailing round you;
God be with you till we meet again!    Refrain
