Resurrecting God, we have come to see the stone rolled away.
We come in hope that no matter who we are,
no matter where life has taken us,
no matter what choices we have made,
no matter what sins we have committed,
we will find Christ in this place.
The empty tomb assures us that nothing we can do is beyond your power to recreate.
Be with us as we celebrate the beauty of new life, we ask in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, who taught us to pray saying:
