Welcome to Branch Church's Third Annual Sunrise Worship Gathering for Resurrection Sunday

Welcome

Mark 16:1-6a

1When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”

But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here.

Christ the Lord is Risen Today

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! 

Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia! 

Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! 

Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia! 


Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia! 

Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia! 

Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia! 

Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia! 


Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia! 

Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia! 

Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia! 

Where's thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia! 


Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia! 

Following our exalted Head, Alleluia! 

Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia! 

Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia! 


Hail the Lord of earth and heaven, Alleluia! 

Praise to thee by both be given, Alleluia! 

Thee we greet triumphant now, Alleluia! 

Hail the Resurrection, thou, Alleluia! 


King of glory, soul of bliss, Alleluia! 

Everlasting life is this, Alleluia! 

Thee to know, thy power to prove, Alleluia! 

Thus to sing, and thus to love, Alleluia!

Glorious Day

I was buried beneath my shame

Who could carry that kind of weight?

It was my tomb

'Til I met You


I was breathing, but not alive

All my failures I tried to hide

It was my tomb

'Til I met You


You called my name

Then I ran out of that grave

Out of the darkness

Into Your glorious day


You called my name

And I ran out of that grave

Out of the darkness

Into Your glorious day


Now Your mercy has saved my soul

Now Your freedom is all that I know

The old made new

Jesus, when I met You, whoa, what a day


When you called my name

And I ran out of that grave

Out of the darkness

Into Your glorious day

You called my name

Then I ran out of that grave

Out of the darkness

Into Your glorious day


I needed rescue

My sin was heavy

But chains break at the weight of Your glory

I needed shelter

I was an orphan

But You call me a citizen of Heaven

When I was broken

You were my healing

Now Your love is the air that I'm breathing

I have a future

My eyes are open


'Cause when you called my name

I ran out of that grave

Out of the darkness

Into Your glorious day

You called my name

And I ran out of that grave

Out of the darkness

Into Your glorious day

Rising Sun

Our Great Redeemer

Glorious Savior

Your name is higher than the rising sun

Light of the morning

You shine forever

Your name is higher than the rising sun

Your name is higher than the rising sun

Psalm 113:1-3

Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord, you his servants;

    praise the name of the Lord.


Let the name of the Lord be praised,

    both now and forevermore.


From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,

    the name of the Lord is to be praised.

Message: Living in the Light of the Risen Son, Darren LeBlanc

Sometimes in the brokenness of this world, we can’t feel God - he can feel cold and dark. Sometimes we do things, or things are done to us, or sometimes just the noisy world around us blurs our ability to taste and see the goodness of God. But he is far more faithful than we can imagine and his gift to us is so deep and so rich that our hearts should skip a beat at it's mention.
