The Fifth Sunday of Easter
Introduction for Worship: As we continue to celebrate the fifty days of Easter, today’s gospel includes Jesus’ promise
that he goes to prepare a place for his followers in his Father’s house. Our baptism commissions us to share Jesus’ mission
in the world. As 1 Peter reminds us, we are a holy people, called to proclaim the one who called us out of darkness into
light. In words and deeds we bear witness to the risen Christ—our way, our truth, our life.
Greeting and Thanksgiving for Baptism
P Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
C Christ is Risen indeed! Alleluia!
P Blessed be the holy Trinity, ☩ one God, the fountain of living water, the rock who gave us birth, our light and our
Joined to Christ in the waters of baptism, we are clothed with God's mercy and forgiveness. Let us give thanks for
the gift of baptism.
Water may be poured into the font or a bowl as the presiding minister gives thanks.
We give you thanks, O God, for in the beginning your Spirit moved over the waters and by your Word you created
the world, calling forth life in which you took delight. Through the waters of the flood you delivered Noah and his
family. Through the sea you led your people Israel from slavery into freedom. At the river your Son was baptized
by John and anointed with the Holy Spirit. By water and your Word you claim us as daughters and sons, making us
heirs of your promise and servants of all. We praise you for the gift of water that sustains life, and above all we
praise you for the gift of new life in Jesus Christ. Shower us with your Spirit, and renew our lives with your
forgiveness, grace, and love. To you be given honor and praise through Jesus Christ our Lord in the unity of the
Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.

Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, your Son Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. Give us grace to love one another, to follow in the
way of his commandments, and to share his risen life with all the world, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy
Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
First Reading 1 Peter 2: 2-10 2Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation—3if indeed you have
tasted that the Lord is good.
4Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight, and 5like living
stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to
God through Jesus Christ. 6For it stands in scripture:
“See, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious;
and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.” 7To you then who believe, he is precious; but for those who do not believe,
“The stone that the builders rejected has become the very head of the corner,” 8and “A stone that makes them stumble, and a rock that makes them fall.” They stumble because they disobey the
word, as they were destined to do.
9But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the
mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
10Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people;
once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

Second Reading John 14: 1-14
[Jesus said to the disciples:] 1“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father’s
house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3And
if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be
also. 4And you know the way to the place where I am going.” 5Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you
are going. How can we know the way?” 6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to
the Father except through me. 7If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have
8Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” 9Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you all
this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us
the Father’? 10Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not
speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father
is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves. 12Very truly, I tell you, the one who
believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the
Father. 13I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If in my name you ask
me for anything, I will do it.”
Reflection and Sermon The Rev. Dr. Jennifer L. Phelps
Hymn of the Day “Come, My Way, My Truth, My Life” #816
Words of Institution:
In the night in which he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to his disciples,
saying: Take and eat; this is my body given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.
Again, after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink, saying: This cup is the new covenant in
my blood, shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin. Do this for the remembrance of me.
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours,
now and forever. Amen.
