Alleluia Verse

Alleluia. We know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. Alleluia. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world. Alleluia.

Prayer Before Service…Guide us into all truth, O Spirit of life and truth.
