The Sixth Sunday in Easter/Senior Sunday

Service of Holy Communion 

PRESIDER: Rev. James A. Wetzstein, University Pastor


Our Theme:

It's Senior Sunday! Five seniors (Scott Staal, Avery Webster Davis, Nate Gafkjen, Katie Bernabei, Charlotte Soderman) will offer reflections this morning and many others help lead worship in various roles.

Prayer of the Day:

Bountiful God, you gather your people into your realm, and you promise us food from your tree of life. Nourish us with your word, that empowered by your Spirit we may love one another and the world you have made, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.


Gospel: John 14:23-29 

23Jesus answered “Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.

25“I have said these things to you while I am still with you. 26But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you. 27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. 28You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. 29And now I have told you this before it occurs, so that when it does occur, you may believe.”
