THE EIGHTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

JULY 15, 2018

WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH! We extend a warm welcome to everyone today, especially our visitors. In the bulletin you’ll find an outline of today’s service, a calendar of events and other bits of information. In the red hymn book you’ll find the songs we sing and the order of service that we follow. If you would like a large print hymnal or bulletin please ask one of our ushers and they will gladly assist you. Restrooms and nursery area are located the parish hall at Emmanuel and in the lower level and “link-way” at St. John’s. It’s nice to have you visit today. May God bless our worship together!

GOD’S WORD FOR TODAY  Jesus Gives the Bread of Life: Through Faithful Preachers & Teachers – It’s not easy giving a faithful proclamation of God’s Word. Pastors and teachers serve as God’s representative to a sinful world, and the world is often not willing to accept God’s message of truth. The Old Testament prophet Amos found that out; St. Paul found that out; Jesus’ newly-called apostles would find that out. Yet faithful pastors and teachers are a most necessary and divinely-instituted way in which the gospel of Jesus is proclaimed to all nations. Thank God for faithful preachers and teachers of the gospel! By them Jesus gives us the Bread of Life.

PERSONAL PRAYER BEFORE WORSHIP Lord God, you know that we are surrounded by many dangers and that we often stumble and fall. Strengthen us in body and mind, and bring us safely through all temptations. Teach us today how Jesus is our Prophet. Amen.

ORDER OF SERVICE–LITURGY

“Gathering Rite on the Word of God” (see below)

PASTOR’S GREETING

(Please stand)

M: In the name of the Father and of the Son (+) and of the Holy Spirit.

C: (spoken) Amen.

OPENING HYMN 221 “Blessed Jesus, at Your Word” (printed below, all sing)

  1. Blessed Jesus, at your Word

    We are gathered all to hear you.

    Let our hearts and souls be stirred

    Now to seek and love and fear you,

    By your teachings, sweet and holy,

    Drawn from earth to love you solely.

M: Oh, how I love your law!

C: I meditate on it all day long.

M: Your commands make me wiser than my enemies,

C: for they are ever with me.

M: I have more insight than all my teachers,

C: for I meditate on your statutes.

M: How sweet are your words to my taste,

C: sweeter than honey to my mouth!

2 All our knowledge, sense, and sight

Lie in deepest darkness shrouded

Till your Spirit breaks our night

With the beams of truth unclouded.

You alone to God can win us;

You must work all good within us.

M: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

C: so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

M: Yet so often we have despised God’s Word and failed to gladly hear and learn it. For this and all our sins, we bow before God and humbly ask his forgiveness.

C: Holy and merciful Father, I confess that I am by nature sinful and that I have disobeyed you in my thoughts, words, and actions. I have done what is evil and failed to do what is good. For this I deserve your punishment both now and in eternity. But I am truly sorry for my sins, and trusting in my Savior Jesus Christ, I pray: Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner.

3 Gracious Savior, good and kind,

Light from Light, from God proceeding,

Open now our heart and mind;

Help us by your Spirit’s pleading.

Hear the cry your people raises;

Hear and bless our prayers and praises.

M: God gave his Word so “that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name”. The Scriptures testify about Jesus, who lived a perfect life for you, died on the cross to pay for all your sins, and rose again to assure you of your salvation. Therefore, as a called servant of Christ and by his authority, I forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son (+) and of the Holy Spirit.

C: (spoken) Amen.

4 Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

Praise to you and adoration!

Grant that we your Word may trust,

Confident of our salvation,

While we here below must wander,

Till we sing your praises yonder.

PRAYER OF THE DAY (read by pastor)

M: Let us pray.

C: (spoken) Amen.

(Please be seated)

THE DAY’S BIBLE READING THEME

God Established Our Ministry: Teacher Installation

OLD TESTAMENT LESSON Amos 7:10-15

The Lord called Amos to proclaim his message even though some would not listen

Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent a message to Jeroboam king of Israel: “Amos is raising a conspiracy against you in the very heart of Israel. The land cannot bear all his words. 11 For this is what Amos is saying:

“‘Jeroboam will die by the sword, and Israel will surely go into exile, away from their native land.’”

Then Amaziah said to Amos, “Get out, you seer! Go back to the land of Judah. Earn your bread there and do your prophesying there. Don’t prophesy anymore at Bethel, because this is the king’s sanctuary and the temple of the kingdom.”

Amos answered Amaziah, “I was neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but I was a shepherd, and I also took care of sycamore-fig trees. But the Lord took me from tending the flock and said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’

PSALM 78 (hymnal page 95 lectern side sings the first line, pulpit side sings the second line, all sing refrains and Gloria)

EPISTLE LESSON Ephesians 1:3-14 (today’s sermon text)

God chose us in Christ before the creation of the world

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,  who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

VERSE OF THE DAY Alleluia! The Spirit of the Lord is on me; He has anointed me to preach good news. Alleluia! (Luke 4:18a)

LITURGY (hymnal page 40, all sing)

“Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! These words are written that we may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!”

(Please stand)

GOSPEL Mark 6:7-13

Jesus sends out the twelve

Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits.

These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. Wear sandals but not an extra shirt. Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”

They went out and preached that people should repent. They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.

LITURGY (hymnal page 40b, all sing)

“Praise be to you, O Christ”

CHRISTIAN ONE-LINERS (from a WELS pastor): “Prayer: Don’t give God instructions, just report for duty!”

MEN’S BIBLE CLASS THIS SUMMER If you had one, and only one, last chance to tell the people you love about life or what’s important in life, about faith and the life of faith, what would you want to tell them? That is the idea for the next men’s Bible Class. We will read, study, and hopefully learn from three men of God and some of their Holy Spirit inspired “last chance” words – David, Joshua, and the Apostle Paul. This is a short 3-lesson study. Tuesday nights, 6:30pm, on August 7, 14, and 21.We had a pretty good turn-out in the spring, so it would be great to keep it up. Perhaps not everyone can make all of them, but think about  it and see if you can make this one hour on a week night a priority for you.

SCHOOL UPDATE REPORT

God is good and we are blessed! After much deliberation and discussion between the school board, council, pastor, synod leadership and many others, we are able to report that our school status is on track and in a good place. The teaching staff is now set and it is a good one. We are pleased.

Little Lambs – Sara Borck, as planned an announced earlier will take over this program.

K-1 – Cassie Doering, a 5th-Year Senior at Martin Luther College has agreed to serve as a 1-year emergency teacher. She’s from Lake Mills.

2-4 – Karin Stellick will continue her work in this classroom

5-8 – Rachel Naumann, our newest teacher, will bring  her 2 years of experience at Luther Prep School into our 5-8 classroom.

This a good mix of experience and youth that will give us a fine faculty for the upcoming school year. We are blessed and  excited by that. We will also have qualified and experienced classroom aides and other support people.

The duties of principal will be handled for the time being by a “committee” approach. Pastor Dolan  has agreed to serve as a spiritual advisor to the faculty and staff and will be a liaison to the school board and church council. Other duties will be  handled by  the school board, and other church leaders, staff, and members as needs arise. Specific duties and details are still being researched and worked out, and we are making good progress. We are not where we hoped to be at this point as far as full-time principal/teacher is concerned, but the situation has worked out well. We are in good hands as we make further preparations for the new school year. Watch for more updates in the weeks ahead. Continue to pray for and support our school ministry, staff, students and parents as together we “feed the lambs” of Jesus.

THE SEVENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

JULY 8, 2018

WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH! We extend a warm welcome to everyone today, especially our visitors. In the bulletin you’ll find an outline of today’s service, a calendar of events and other bits of information.

GOD’S WORD FOR TODAY Listen for the Message God Gives You in His Word – Preaching the message of God is not a popularity contest. The size of the crowd and the level of cheering is not what it is all about, but rather being faithful in speaking God’s Word to the specific people and situations. That may ruffle feathers. The unwillingness of people to listen humbles God’s spokesmen. May we always pay close attention to God’s message, no matter how lowly the messenger who brings it.

THE DAY’S BIBLE READING THEME

Proclaim the Word Whether People Listen or Not

OLD TESTAMENT LESSON Ezekiel 2:1-5

Ezekiel’s call to rebellious Israel

He said to me, “Son of man, stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.” As he spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.

He said: “Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their fathers have been in revolt against me to this very day. The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn. Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says.’ And whether they listen or fail to listen—for they are a rebellious house—they will know that a prophet has been among them.

PSALM 143 (hymnal page 118 cantor sings the first line, congregation sings the second line, all sing refrains and Gloria)

EPISTLE LESSON 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 (today’s sermon text)

Christ’s power in Paul’s ministry became more evident through Paul’s weaknesses

To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

VERSE OF THE DAY Alleluia! “Happy are they who hear the Word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bring forth fruit with patience.” Alleluia! (Luke 8:15)

LITURGY (hymnal pages 40, all sing)

“Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! These words are written that we may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!”

(Please stand)

GOSPEL Mark 6:1-6

Jesus, a Prophet without honor

Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.

“Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles! Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.

Jesus said to them, “Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor.” He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And he was amazed at their lack of faith.

After the Gospel, all sing:

Let Freedom Ring

A Service for Independence Day

C:\Users\Zieman\Pictures\4th of July freedom-in-christ-550x320.jpg

July 1, 2018

8 a.m. Emmanuel

10 a.m. St. John’s

Pastor Peter Zietlow

Pastor’s Greeting: Today we celebrate our freedom in Christ and our nation’s Independence Day.

(Please stand)

Congregational Hymn, “My Country ‘Tis Of Thee,” 1st of 3 verses, sung to the tune of “God Bless Our Native Land,” Hymn 619

Sing:

  1. My country ’tis of thee,

Sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.

Land where my fathers died,

Land of the pilgrims’ pride,

From ev’ry mountainside let freedom ring.

Pastor and congregation responsive readings from Isaiah 61 and 58:

P: Proclaim good news to the oppressed, liberty to the captives, and release to those imprisoned.

C: Let freedom ring!

P: Bind up the brokenhearted and comfort those who mourn. Share your bread with the hungry, clothe the naked, and give shelter to the homeless poor.

C: Proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor!

P: Let the bonds of injustice be loosed and the chains of the yoke undone.

C: Let freedom ring!

P: Proclaim God’s everlasting covenant.

C: For the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring us before all nations.

P: Let freedom ring!

Sing:

  1. Let music swell the breeze, And ring from all the trees sweet freedom’s song; Let mortal tongues awake; Let all that breathe partake; Let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.

Prayer of the Day

Sing:

  1. Our fathers’ God, to thee,

Author of liberty, to thee we sing;

Long may our land be bright

With freedom’s holy light.

Protect us by thy might, great God, our king!

(Please be seated)

First Lesson: Deuteronomy 4:32-39 God freed his people from their bondage.

32 Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created human beings on the earth; ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything so great as this ever happened, or has anything like it ever been heard of? 33 Has any other people heard the voice of God[a] speaking out of fire, as you have, and lived? 34 Has any god ever tried to take for himself one nation out of another nation,by testings, by signs and wonders, by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, or by great and awesome deeds, like all the things the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes?

35 You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other. 36 From heaven he made you hear his voice to discipline you. On earth he showed you his great fire, and you heard his words from out of the fire. 37 Because he loved your ancestors and chose their descendants after them, he brought you out of Egypt by his Presence and his great strength, 38 to drive out before you nations greater and stronger than you and to bring you into their land to give it to you for your inheritance, as it is today.

39 Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.

Psalm Response, sung to the tune “Oh Worship the King,” Hymn 243

Oh, let freedom ring throughout all the land. O citizens, sing of God’s mighty hand. The bountiful grace of your Maker proclaim And fill ev’ry place with the praise of his name!

Proclaim liberty, that all once enslaved From sin’s misery at last may be saved. So may all the ransomed their Savior adore And lift holy hands in his praise evermore.

Proclaim liberty! Behold how each field In God’s jubilee its treasures shall yield. With high adoration God’s children shall sing In thanks for salvation: Oh, let freedom ring.

Second Lesson: Romans 5:12-17 God’s grace is our freedom.

12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—

13 To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law.14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.

15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!

Verse of the Day: Alleluia. Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. Alleluia. Proverbs 14:34

Congregation: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Hymnal p.18

Rise for the Gospel: John 8:31-36 The Son has set us free.

31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

(Be seated)

Congregational Hymn: 1 verse sung to the tune of “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, Hymn 234

Praise we our God for he prospers our words and defends us. Daily the strength of his goodness and mercy attends us. Let freedom ring! Through all the land echoing thanks for the blessings God sends us.

Sermon: Galatians 5:1, 13-25

Celebrate Your Freedom In Christ

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

Congregational Hymn: 1 verse sung to the tune of “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, Hymn 234

Praise to our Father, Almighty, the King of creation! Praise to Christ Jesus, whose death guarantees our salvation!

Let freedom ring! Moved by God’s Spirit we sing anthems of glad adoration.

Offering—Sign the friendship register and greet one another. (WELS Connection DVD)

Hymn 485, “We Give Thee but Thine Own,” verses 1,2

We give thee but thine own, whate’er the gift may be; All that we have is thine alone, a trust, O Lord, from thee.

May we thy bounties thus as stewards true receive And gladly, as thou blesses us, to thee our first fruits give. Amen

Prayer: Lord, keep this nation under your care. Bless the leaders of our land that we may be people at peace among ourselves and a blessing to other nations of the earth. Help us elect trustworthy leaders, contribute to wise decisions for the general welfare, and serve you faithfully in our generation to the honor of your holy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

And they all said…

C: Amen

THE FIFTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

JUNE 24, 2018

WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH! We extend a warm welcome to everyone today, especially our visitors. In the bulletin you’ll find an outline of today’s service, a calendar of events and other bits of information. In the red hymn book you’ll find the songs we sing and the order of service that we follow. If you would like a large print hymnal or bulletin please ask one of our ushers and they will gladly assist you. Restrooms and nursery area are located the parish hall at Emmanuel and in the lower level and “link-way” at St. John’s. It’s nice to have you visit today. May God bless our worship together!

A PERSONAL PRAYER FOR THOSE GATHERED FOR WORSHIP

The fact that we belong to Christ and the fact that he lives for us and with us through the gospel is no guarantee against apparent disasters in life. The best of Christians may be tempted to give God advice in the day of trouble. They may even use their prayers as the means for instructing God on how things ought to be and prescribing to God the best methods for fixing the mess he has allowed. In point of fact God, does not need our advice. The Christian attitude in the day of distress is to listen to the Word of the Lord. It is there that Christians will learn God’s ways are incomparably superior to anything we could imagine or advise. All we have is the Word of promise, and that’s all we need.

GOD’S WORD FOR TODAY Trust God’s Word; He Stilled the Worst Storms – The world is a confusing place. We often feel it does not deal fairly with us. We go through anger, even terror, when we don’t understand the turmoil around us. But in Word and sacrament Jesus reminds us of his presence. He forgives our foolish self-centeredness because of his holy book. He opens our eyes to the rescue he has won for us. Thus, he gives life in this trouble-filled world new hope and new purpose.

THEME FOR TODAY’S SERVICE

The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost: God Governs Creation

FIRST LESSON Job 38:1-11

God’s wisdom over creation

Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said: “Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone— while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?

“Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness, when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’?

PSALM 46 (hymnal page 84, all read verses and sing refrains)

EPISTLE LESSON 2 Corinthians 5:14-21 (today’s sermon text)

God’s reconciling love forms a new creation

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

VERSE OF THE DAY Alleluia. Because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Alleluia. (Galatians 4:6)

LITURGY (hymnal page 18, all sing)

“Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!”

(Please stand)

After the announcement of the Gospel, all sing:

“Glory be to you, O Lord!”

GOSPEL LESSON Mark 4:35-41

Jesus power over creation

That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

After the reading of the Gospel, all sing:

“Praise be to you, O Christ”

(Please be seated for the distribution)

Welcome! We are pleased that you have joined us for worship today,

If you are visiting today we ask you to speak to the pastor before communing. Here at St. John’s and Emmanuel Ev. Lutheran Churches we follow the historic and scriptural practice of closed Communion (sometimes called member Communion).

Holy Communion expresses our oneness in faith and confession. To commune with us is the same as declaring, “I believe everything this church teaches.” Before communing together we need to study God’s Word together to ensure that we are united in belief and confession. Therefore, we respectfully ask other Christians to receive instruction before communing with us. We welcome to the Lord’s Table those who confess unity in faith with us by their membership in another congregation of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). If you have any questions about our practice please speak to the pastor after the service.

THE FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

FATHER’S DAY

JUNE 17, 2018

PLEASE WELCOME today’s worship leader Pastor Tim Dolan, Dean of Students at Luther Preparatory School–Watertown

WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH! We extend a warm welcome to everyone today, especially our visitors. In the bulletin you’ll find an outline of today’s service, a calendar of events and other bits of information. In the red hymn book you’ll find the songs we sing and the order of service that we follow. If you would like a large print hymnal or bulletin please ask one of our ushers and they will gladly assist you. Restrooms and nursery area are located the parish hall at Emmanuel and in the lower level and “link-way” at St. John’s. It’s nice to have you visit today. May God bless our worship together!

GOD’S WORD FOR TODAY Don’t Underestimate Jesus and His People!  On Independence Days people celebrate the growth and power of the nation.  Yet there is a more powerful kingdom that has grown up from humble beginnings.  It is the kingdom of God, which often makes unnoticeable progress in conquering hearts for Christ.  Yet stepping back to look at it you can see its tremendous growth. Those who are part of it will be longing for the final outcome when they are “clothed” with immortal life away from the struggles of the world.

A PERSONAL PRAYER BEFORE WORSHIP All-merciful Father in heaven: In love you sent your Son Jesus to suffer, die on the cross and rise from the grave to save us. In love you send the Holy Spirit through the gospel in Word and Sacrament to call us to repentance, faith, and discipleship. Inspire and empower us to CLING TO THE VINE AND PRODUCE FRUITS OF FAITH. Bless our lip worship today and our life worship tomorrow. Amen.

THE DAY’S BIBLE READING THEME

Father’s Day–The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost: The Growth of God’s Kingdom

FIRST LESSON Ezekiel 17:22-24

The Lord builds His Kingdom from the Messianic shoot

“`This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will take a shoot from the very top of a cedar and plant it; I will break off a tender sprig from its topmost shoots and plant it on a high and lofty mountain. On the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it; it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar. Birds of every kind will nest in it; they will find shelter in the shade of its branches. All the trees of the field will know that I the LORD bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish.’”

“`I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.'”

PSALM 92 (hymnal page 101, sung in unison)

EPISTLE LESSON 2 Corinthians 5:1-10

Kingdom living – by faith not by sight

Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. We live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

VERSE OF THE DAY Alleluia. May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy. Alleluia. (Psalm 132:9)

LITURGY (hymnal page 40, all sing)

“Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! These words are written that we may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!”

(Please stand)

GOSPEL Mark 4:26-34 (today’s sermon text)

Internal and external growth of God’s Kingdom

He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain– first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”

Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds of the air can perch in its shade.”

With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.

I’m needing any couches or chairs for a living room, any coffee tables also for a living room, and maybe a small dresser or nightstand for the small spare bedroom. And any deck furniture, as the house as a smaller deck out back! Anything extra from anyone would be fantastic!”  Please phone, text, or e-mail Rachel with items that you could donate. (847-913-2135 & rachnau94@gmail.com) Photos of items would be appreciated.  Free pick up is available.

Dear Members and Families of St. Johns,

As the school year has ended and another year of ministry and activity at St. John’s has come to an end, it’s time to take a little break for the summer and get ready for the fall. It is also the time when the church financial/budget year will be closing as well. The church and school leadership wanted to say thank you for supporting the ministry here at St. Johns Church, School and various other WELS ministry fields. Thank you for bringing your family and friends to church.

With the beginning of summer for the students, staff and the multitudes of various activities and sports, comes vacations and family activities, and unfortunately what most churches refer to as the summer slump. The summer slump is where we get too busy doing all the other activities that require our time that regular church attendance takes a back seat. Its where we find ourselves on Sunday morning saying, “I am just going to miss this Sunday to do other (insert your own activity here)” and next thing we know it’s been three months since we set foot in church or into Gods Word. We just want to inform you of various other ways you can stay connected to God and his Word. There are many ways to do this whether you attend Church on Sunday or our Wednesday night service. You also can use technology to your advantage and watch a sermon on line or keep up with your daily devotion through the church website or Time of Grace daily devotions. If you are going on vacation you can use the WELS website to look and see if there is a WELS church near where you are vacationing. You are never far away from Gods word if you don’t want to be. Just ask – there are many options that we can suggest for you.

Enjoy your summer time with family and friends. Bring them to church with you. Stay in God’s Word. Make it a part of your summer routine. There is much to be thankful for this last year! Let’s give ourselves one more blessing and avoid the summer slump. It’s that simple and easy. And God promises to bless our efforts in his name.

Be gracious to us in our weakness and give us strength to keep your commandments in all we say and do; through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

SPEAK LORD! Today’s hymns and readings focus our thoughts on Jesus, who saved us from death in hell for life in heaven by conquering Satan and sin by his own death on the cross and resurrection from the grave. Yes, rejoice that Jesus is our Savior!

GOD’S WORD FOR TODAY Your Dread Enemy, the Devil, Won’t Win – Adam and Eve ruined everything for everyone. They destined themselves for death. They took the perfect world that God created for everyone and put it under constant attack from all the demons. But God made a promise almost immediately. God said he would send a descendant of Eve to crush Satan’s power. Jesus, that descendant, demonstrated his authority over Satan even before he rose from the dead.

THE DAY’S BIBLE READING THEME

God’s Plan to Save Mankind

FIRST LESSON Genesis 3:8-15

The first promise of the Savior

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?”

He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”

And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

The man said, “The woman you put here with me– she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”

Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”

The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

So the LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, “Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

PSALM 51a (hymnal page 86; all sing refrains and read verses)

EPISTLE LESSON 2 Corinthians 4:13-18 (today’s sermon text)

The wonderful effect of God’s plan

It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” {Psalm 116:10} With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

VERSE OF THE DAY Alleluia. God was in Christ reconciling the world himself, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Alleluia. (2 Cor. 5:19)

LITURGY (hymnal pages 18, all sing)

“Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!”

(Please stand)

After the announcement of the Gospel, all sing:

“Glory be to you, O Lord!”

GOSPEL Mark 3:20-35

The fulfillment of God’s plan

Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat. When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”

And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebub! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons.”

So Jesus called them and spoke to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can rob his house. I tell you the truth, all the sins and blasphemies of men will be forgiven them. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin.”

He said this because they were saying, “He has an evil spirit.”

Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. A crowd was sitting around him, and they told him, “Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.”

“Who are my mother and my brothers?” he asked.

Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”

After the Gospel, all sing”

“Praise be to you, O Christ!”

We believe that in Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, God comes to us with forgiveness through tangible means. Because the Bible has convinced us that Jesus’ body and blood are present in the sacrament and that receiving the sacrament together is a public statement of oneness in our beliefs, we ask our guests to speak with the pastor before communing. We look forward to any opportunity to discuss our Christian faith with you.

THE SECOND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

JUNE 3, 2018

WELCOME GUEST PASTOR PHIL JANKE FROM WINNEBAGO LUTHERAN ACADEMY

WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH! We extend a warm welcome to everyone today, especially our visitors. In the bulletin you’ll find an outline of today’s service, a calendar of events and other bits of information. In the red hymn book you’ll find the songs we sing and the order of service that we follow. If you would like a large print hymnal or bulletin please ask one of our ushers and they will gladly assist you. Restrooms and nursery area are located the parish hall at Emmanuel and in the lower level and “link-way” at St. John’s. It’s nice to have you visit today. May God bless our worship together!

THE SEASON OF PENTECOST During the festival half of the church year (Advent–Pentecost), we focus on the birth and life, suffering and death, resurrection and ascension of our Savior, Jesus Christ. During the 25 Sundays of the Pentecost season, we turn our attention away from Jesus works to his words, listening and learning as he teaches of God’s love and a Christian’s life.

 

A PERSONAL PRAYER BEFORE WORSHIP

Yours forever, oh, how blest, They who find in you their rest!

Savior, Guardian, heav’nly Friend, Oh, defend us to the end.

Yours forever! You are Guide, All our needs by you supplied,

All our sins by you forgiv’n, Lead us, Lord, from earth to heav’n. (Hymn 426 v.2)

PRAYER OF THE DAY

(Please be seated for the day’s Scripture readings)

SCRIPTURE READING THEME

The 2nd Sunday after Pentecost: Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath

OLD TESTAMENT LESSON Deuteronomy 5:12-15 (today’s sermon text)

The Sabbath of the old covenant

“Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the LORD your God has commanded you. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor the alien within your gates, so that your manservant and maidservant may rest, as you do. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.

PSALM 126 (hymnal page 113, men sing first line, women sing second line, all sing refrains and Gloria)

EPISTLE LESSON 2 Corinthians 4:5-12

“For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

VERSE OF THE DAY Alleluia. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” Alleluia (Psalm 119:105)

LITURGY (hymnal page 40, all sing)

“Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! These words are written…”

(Please stand)

GOSPEL LESSON Mark 2:23-28

Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath

One Sabbath day as Jesus was walking through some grain fields, his disciples began breaking off heads of wheat. But the Pharisees said to Jesus, “They shouldn’t be doing that! It’s against the law to work by harvesting grain on the Sabbath.”

But Jesus replied, “Haven’t you ever read in the Scriptures what King David did when he and his companions were hungry? He went into the house of God (during the days when Abiathar was high priest), ate the special bread reserved for the priests alone, and then gave some to his companions. That was breaking the law, too.” Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made to benefit people, and not people to benefit the Sabbath. And I, the Son of Man, am master even of the Sabbath!”

A PERSONAL PRAYER BEFORE WORSHIP Lord O Triune God–Father, Son and Holy Spirit: Today, Trinity Sunday, we give you praise as the only true God who made us and cares for us. We bow our heads in shame, confessing our sinfulness as we enter your holy presence. You are not only the Triune God; you are also our heavenly Father. Through your Son’s work of saving us and through the Spirit’s work of sanctifying us, you have adopted as your own dear children, forgiven, redeemed, and heaven-bound. Bless us, leading us to repent, believe, obey, and depend on you. Bless our worship. Amen.

THEME FOR THIS SUNDAY The Festival of the Holy Trinity

OLD TESTAMENT LESSON Isaiah 6:1-8

“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty”

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.

“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.”

Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

PSALM 150 (hymnal page 122, lectern side sings the first line, pulpit side sings the second line, all sing refrains and Gloria)

EPISTLE Romans 8:14-17 (today’s sermon text)

The Spirit makes us God’s children and co-heirs with Christ

Those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs– heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

VERSE OF THE DAY Alleluia. Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory. Alleluia. (Isaiah 6:3b)

All sing: “Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! These words are written…” (hymnal page 30a)

(Please stand)

GOSPEL John 3:1-17

The Father gave us his Son and gives us the Spirit that we might have life

After Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”

“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”

Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, `You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

“How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.

“You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven– the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

After the Gospel, all sing: “Praise be to you, O Christ!” (hymnal page 30b)

(Please be seated)

SERMON HYMN 241 “Alleluia! Let Praises Ring” (printed in hymnal, all sing)

SERMON Romans 8: 14-17

“How Can I Be Sure?”

  1. Because the Spirit leads you
  2. Because the Father adopted you
  3. Because the Son suffered for you

(Please stand)

THE APOSTLES’ CREED (sung to tune of CW 486 “Lord of Glory, You Have Bought Us”, see below)

I believe in God the Father, Maker of the heav’n and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, our Savior, God’s own Son of human birth.

Virgin-born, the Lord incarnate, whom the Spirit did conceive;

Suffered under Pontius Pilate; he’s the God whom I believe.

Crucified, was dead and buried, down to hell in victory,

From the dead he rose the third day; up to heav’n triumphantly.

There at God’s right hand he’s ruling, by his will the world is led.

He will come to judge the nations, both the living and the dead.

I believe in God the Spirit, in his Church, his chosen band.

They are joined in sweet communion, holy in his sight they stand.

I believe in sins forgiven; I believe I’ll rise again;

I believe in life eternal.  Amen, Amen, Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father,

On this day of remembrance for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Please hold our servicemen and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.

We also remember the families of our troops. We ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray your peace, provision, hope and strength will fill their lives.

May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord’s mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support.

In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray,

Amen.

BULLETIN- MISSION FESTIVAL- May 20, 2018

MISSION FESTIVAL

PENTECOST SUNDAY

C:\Users\Zieman\Pictures\1 Kings 19 Still small voice2.jpg

May 20, 2018

8 a.m. Emmanuel

10 a.m. St. John’s

Pastor Peter Zietlow

Missionary Daniel Kroll


Choir Sings: “He Is The Rock” by Michael Barrett

Rise for Liturgy, which is spoken by pastor and responsively by congregation.

P: This is the day that the Lord has made.

C: Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

P: This is the day of which Jesus declared: “You will receive the power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.

C: And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Psalm 118:24; Acts 1:8

Confession of Sin

P: If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1John 1:8-9

Let us therefore humbly confess our sin to God and seek forgiveness through Jesus Christ our Savior.

C: Have mercy on us, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out our transgressions. Wash away all our iniquities, and cleanse us from our sin. Create in us clean hearts, O God, and renew a right spirit within us. Do not cast us away from your presence, or take your Holy Spirit from us. Restore to us the joy of your salvation, and grant us a willing spirit to sustain us.

Psalm 51: 1,2;10-12

P: God, our Heavenly Father, has been merciful to us and has given his only Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Therefore, as a called servant of Christ and by his authority, I forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

C: Amen.

P: Let us pray: God, we offer to you praise for the gift of your Spirit. When we are lonely, the Spirit comes to be our friend. When we are filled with doubt and lack faith, the Spirit speaks the word of truth. When we are filled with hatred, the Spirit brings to us the gift of love. For your Spirit we praise you, O God, our redeemer. Amen

Old Testament Reading: Deuteronomy 29:5-6

God provides for Israel trekking in the desert

5Yet the LORD says, “During the forty years that I led you through the wilderness, your clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on your feet. 6You ate no bread and drank no wine or other fermented drink. I did this so that you might know that I am the LORD your God.”

Choir: “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms” arranged by Kim Eve

Epistle Lesson: 2 Corinthians 12:9-12

Paul faces difficulties in his work for the Lord, but accepts the Lord’s answer that he carry on (“trekking”) as he is.

9But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 11I have made a fool of myself, but you drove me to it. I ought to have been commended by you, for I am not in the least inferior to the “super-apostles,” even though I am nothing. 12I persevered in demonstrating among you the marks of a true apostle, including signs, wonders and miracles.

Verse of the Day

Alleluia. Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful people, and kindle in them the fire of your love. Alleluia

C: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Hymnal p. 18

Rise for the Gospel Reading: Luke 9:51-56

51As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. 52And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him; 53but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem. 54When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, “LORD, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?” 55But Jesus turned and rebuked them. 56Then he and his disciples went to another village.

 

Congregational Sermon Hymn, “Savior I follow On,” Hymn 473

Sermon: Missionary Daniel Kroll

Theme: All God’s People Keep on Trekking

Text: 1 Kings 19:1-18

1Now Ahab told Jezebel everything Elijah had done and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. So Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah to say, “May the gods deal with me, be it ever so severely, if by this time tomorrow I do not make your life like that of one of them.” Elijah was afraid[a] and ran for his life. When he came to Beersheba in Judah, he left his servant there, while he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness. He came to a broom bush, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, Lord,” he said. “Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down under the bush and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” He looked around, and there by his head was some bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again. The angel of the Lord came back a second time and touched him and said, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.” So he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God. There he went into a cave and spent the night. And the word of the Lord came to him: “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 10 He replied, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too.” 11 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. 13 When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 14 He replied, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too. 15 The Lord said to him, “Go back the way you came, and go to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint Hazael king over Aram.16 Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah to succeed you as prophet. 17 Jehu will put to death any who escape the sword of Hazael, and Elisha will put to death any who escape the sword of Jehu. 18 Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him.”

Offering. Greet one another and sign the register.

Prayer: O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the earth and have sent your messengers to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near. Grant that by the witness of your Church many may be brought into your kingdom and worship you, the only true God; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

C: Amen

WELCOME GUEST PASTOR JOHN DOLAN

We extend a warm welcome to everyone this morning, especially our visitors. In the bulletin you’ll find an outline of today’s service, a calendar, and other bits of information.

A PERSONAL PRAYER BEFORE WORSHIP

Almighty God, your Son our Savior was taken up in glory and intercedes for us at your right hand. Through your living and abiding Word, give us hearts to know him and faith to follow where he has gone. Bless our worship today and every day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

GOD’S WORD FOR TODAY Our ascended Lord is in heaven, where he sits at the Father’s right hand and prays for his Church.

TODAY’S THEME The 7th Sunday of Easter (Mother’s Day): The Ascended Lord, Our Great High Priest, Prepares His Church for Its Work

FIRST LESSON Acts 1: 15-26

Preparation by the disciples for witnessing to the world

In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty) and said, “Brothers, the Scripture had to be fulfilled which the Holy Spirit spoke long ago through the mouth of David concerning Judas, who served as guide for those who arrested Jesus—he was one of our number and shared in this ministry.”

(With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out. Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.)

“For,” said Peter, “it is written in the book of Psalms,

”‘May his place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in it,’and,” ‘May another take his place of leadership.’

Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from John’s baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection.”

So they proposed two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. Then they prayed, “Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs.” Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.

PSALM 8 (hymnal page 67, cantor sings first line, congregation sings second line, all sing refrains and Gloria)

SECOND LESSON 1 John 4:13-21

We love because he first loved us

We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.

VERSE OF THE DAY Alleluia. Alleluia. Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Alleluia. (John 14:18)

After the Verse of the Day is read, all sing:

“Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!” (hymnal page 18a)

 

(Please stand)

After the announcement of the Gospel, all sing:

“Glory be to you, O Lord!” (hymnal page 18b)

GOSPEL John 17:11b-19 (today’s sermon text)

Jesus prays that his disciples may be protected and sent out into the world

Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name—the name you gave me—so that they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

After the Gospel, all sing:

“Praise be to you, O Christ!”

MISSION FESTIVAL ON SUNDAY, MAY 20, OFFERS FOOD FOR BODY & SOUL.  Mark your calendars for a full day celebrating missions!  Cameroon, Africa, will be highlighted at mission festival services at 8 a.m. at Emmanuel and at 10 a.m. at St. John’s with Missionary Daniel Kroll.  A freewill offering will be taken at both services to support the work in Cameroon. 

   The day offers you a “4-Ps Mission Meal” of Preaching- Pasta-Pie- Presentation.  Pastor Kroll will share food for the soul as he preaches God’s Word at both worship services.  Then, ALL are invited for food for the body at a meal of pasta (lasagna) and homemade pie (Freewill Offering), at St. John’s, beginning around 11:30 a.m. and hosted as a Thrivent Action Team event by women of the LWMS.  Finally, more food for the soul as Missionary Kroll and his wife Karen do a tag-team presentation about Cameroon at St. John’s.

C:\Users\secretary\Downloads\842x342-Missions-Cameroon1.jpg    The Lutheran Church of Cameroon (LCC) is on a journey to build up the church and the faith of her members in a land filled with ancestor worship, witchcraft, and false teachers.  Ten seminarians are finishing the second of their five-year seminary. This is big news as there have been no new pastors since 1999—when these men graduate, their pastorate will have more than doubled!  Your prayer and monetary support is vital.  Cameroon currently operates on project funds rather than being part of the WELS budget.
