PSALM OF THE DAY                                                               Psalm 30

Pastor and congregation sing in unison. 

T H E   W O R D

The Lord Jesus speaks to us in Scripture reading, preaching and song.

FIRST  READING                                                                             1 Kings 17:17-24

Summary: Elijah raises the widow’s son

Sometime later the son of the woman who owned the house became ill. He grew worse and worse, and finally stopped breathing.  She said to Elijah, “What do you have against me, man of God? Did you come to remind me of my sin and kill my son?”

“Give me your son,” Elijah replied. He took him from her arms, carried him to the upper room where he was staying, and laid him on his bed.  Then he cried out to the LORD, “O LORD my God, have you brought tragedy also upon this widow I am staying with, by causing her son to die?” 

Then he stretched himself out on the boy three times and cried to the LORD, “O LORD my God, let this boy’s life return to him!”

The LORD heard Elijah’s cry, and the boy’s life returned to him, and he lived.  Elijah picked up the child and carried him down from the room into the house. He gave him to his mother and said, “Look, your son is alive!”

Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now I know that you are a man of God and that the word of the LORD from your mouth is the truth.”

SECOND READING                                                      Galatians 1:11-24 

Summary: God called Paul and changed him from a persecutor into a preacher

I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.

For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it.  I was advancing in Judaism beyond many Jews of my own age and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers. But when God, who set me apart from birth and called me by his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not consult any man, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went immediately into Arabia and later returned to Damascus.

Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Peter and stayed with him fifteen days. I saw none of the other apostles-only James, the Lord’s brother. I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie. Later I went to Syria and Cilicia. I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” And they praised God because of me.

VERSE OF THE DAY             2 Corinthians 5:19

Alleluia!  God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.  Alleluia!         

Please stand

GOSPEL READING                                            Luke 7:11-17 

Summary: Jesus raises a widow’s son

Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him. As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out-the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her.  When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”

Then he went up and touched the coffin, and those carrying it stood still. He said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!” The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.

They were all filled with awe and praised God. “A great prophet has appeared among us,” they said. “God has come to help his people.” This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country.

C: Our Father, who art in Heaven,

hallowed be thy name,

thy kingdom come,

thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom

and the power and the glory

forever and ever.  Amen.

                   and in all we do, direct us to what is right in your sight, through Jesus Christ, 

                   your Son, our Lord.

2ND ANNUAL ST JOHN’S LUTHERAN CHURCH-PRINCETON SOCCER CAMP July 15-17 – “Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13, 14). Soccer is a difficult game that requires perseverance. But it is hard to persevere without a clear goal in mind. In the same way, life is very difficult and requires perseverance. But it is hard to persevere without a clear goal in mind. The Bible says that only goal worth striving for is to know Jesus and be called heavenward in his name.  Your children are invited to a three-day camp where they will learn how to persevere on and off the soccer field. Drills, exercises, and scrimmages will help them set goals for soccer. Breaks for devotions, music and other activities will help them set goals for life as they grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ their Savior.  Soccer camp begins with a meal each evening at 5 and each camp participant will receive a T-shirt and soccer socks. And it’s all FREE! Boys and girls, ages 3 through 12 are welcome! This year we are asking your child to bring their own water bottle with them to the camp each evening. Register by calling 920-295-4400 Monday-Thursday from 8:00am to 1:00pm
