Alleluia! Christ is risen. He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
Call to Worship/Praise
O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord,
Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving,
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God
And a great King above all gods.
your Son Jesus Christ is the way,
the truth and life for all creation;
grant us grace to walk in his way,
rejoice in his truth, and share his risen life;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.
The Liturgy of the Word
MOTHER’S DAY MESSAGE
a special day appears
of a special person
we all hold so dear
she is more than a day
She is a life-time
‘Mother sweet mother of mine’
The songster rhymical said
She’s called upon to care
for isolated family
and ‘couch potato’ spouse
with every bit of morsel
Lockdown allows to spare
She’s like a brooding mother hen
her chicks all in the house
like old times
she delights herself
her mother’s love
