Livestream Easter Sunrise Worship

Coffee with Pastor Stephanie

We take a few moments to release the pressures of our lives, bringing ourselves completely to this time and space and readying ourselves to receive that which divine presence has for us to share.

When you're down and troubled,
And you need some love and care,
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me,
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night.

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend

If the sky above you grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running, running, yeah, yeah, to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
And I'll be there, yes I will.

Now, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold?
They'll hurt you, yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them,
Oh, but don't you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running, running, yeah, yeah, yeah, to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend

You've got a friend
Ain't it good to know, you've got a friend?
You've got a friend

The Servant’s Humiliation and Vindication

The Lord God has given me
the tongue of a teacher,[a] 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.
The Lord God has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious,
I did not turn backward.
I 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.

The 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;
he who vindicates me is near.
Who will contend with me?
Let us stand up together.
Who are my adversaries?
Let them confront me.
It is the Lord God who helps me;
who will declare me guilty?
All of them will wear out like a garment;
the moth will eat them up.

Pastor Connor DeFehr

At The Land, communion is an open table where all are invited to participate.

Communion Prayer

As You, Jesus, used your death to give us life, so use these elements before us as reminders of your death to give us grace in our time of need, to heal us from sickness, to give us peace in place of fear, and to empower us with knowledge and wisdom for how to accomplish Your will on the earth in this time of uncertainty

You Are My Hiding Place

You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in You

I will trust in You
Let the weak say
I am strong
In the strength of the Lord

You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in You

I will trust in You
Let the weak say I am strong
In the strength of the Lord
I will trust in You

Guitar

You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in You

Let the weak say
I am strong
In the strength of the Lord

After the last tear falls, after the last secret’s told
After the last bullet tears through flesh and bone
After the last child starves and the last girl walks the boulevard
After the last year that’s just too hard

There is love
Love, love, love
There is love
Love, love, love
There is love

After the last disgrace, after the last lie to save some face
After the last brutal jab from a poison tongue
After the last dirty politician, after the last meal down at the mission
After the last lonely night in prison

There is love
Love, love, love
There is love
Love, love, love
There is love

And in the end, the end is oceans and oceans of love and love again
We’ll see how the tears that have fallen
Were caught in the palms of the Giver of love and the Lover of all
And we’ll look back on these tears as old tales

‘Cause after the last plan fails, after the last siren wails
After the last young husband sails off to join the war
After the last, this marriage is over
After the last young girl’s innocence is stolen
After the last years of silence that won’t let a heart open

There is love
Love, love, love
There is love

And in the end, the end is oceans and oceans of love and love again
We’ll see how the tears that have fallen
Were caught in the palms of the Giver of love and the Lover of all
And we’ll look back on these tears as old tales

‘Cause after the last tear falls there is love

Rattlesnakes may be found in this area. They are important members of the natural community. They will not attack, but if disturbed or cornered, they will defend themselves. Give them distance and respect.

Important Points:
  • Rattlesnakes only bite people in self-defense.
  • Rattlesnakes don’t have to be coiled to bite.
  • Rattlesnakes don’t always rattle before biting.
  • Snakes prefer 70˚F to 90˚F but may be out in the sun at 60˚F.
  • Less than 0.1% of bites are fatal. Get help quickly.
  • Never intentionally approach a rattlesnake. 56% of bites occur when people pursue the snake.
Bottom Line:
  • Wear high boots to walk through the grass.
  • Watch the ground as you walk.
  • If you can’t see the ground in grass or weeds, move slowly.
  • Do not run on ground you cannot see.
  • When you see or hear a snake leave the area immediately and warn others.
  • Make sure the area is safe before taking a pet off-leash.
