Announcements for May 30, 2021

immanuelosmond | 28 May, 2021 11:20

WE WELCOME EVERYONE who has worshipped with us this morning. We hope you will be able to worship with us again soon.

THE CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Anna Kahny and Julianna Kumm and next Sunday they will be Blake Bahr and Connor Gutz.

OUR READER for this morning is Ross Stelling and next Sunday, the reader will be Ed Brummels. Helping with communion next Sunday will be Paul Koehler and Ross Stelling.

MEMORIAL DAY: Each May, the United States celebrates a day called Memorial Day. Memorial Day was first widely observed in May 1868. The celebration commemorated the sacrifices of the Civil War and the proclamation was made by General John A. Logan. Following the proclamation, participants decorated more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldier’s graves. In the following years since World War 1, the day has become a celebration of honor for those brave men and women who died in all America’s wars, as well as those who are Veterans and current members of the U.S. military. Memorial Day was declared a national holiday in 1971. The U.S. celebrates this holiday the last Monday of May (tomorrow May 31). We thank God for the sacrifice of all that have gone before (veterans and civilians) who have sacrificed for our nation.

NO SUNDAY SCHOOL today! Summer Sunday school will be held the last Sunday of June, July and August.

BIBLE CLASS: The adult Bible class will continue the series: “Dangerous Teachings of Christianity.” Today the focus will be on atheism, which denies the existence of God. Today’s atheism is different from the atheism of Madalyn Murry O’Hair of the 1960s. Actually, there is no such thing of as atheism, because everyone, no exceptions, exalts something as god. How can you engage in conversation with today’s atheist? Come to this morning’s Bible and explore the possibility.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL will be held July 12-15 from 5-8 p.m. and the closing program will be on Sunday, July 18th during the church service. A sign-up sheet for volunteers is up in the back of church. Please consider helping with this mission right here in our own community. Registration for students will begin in June.

THE LYF will be having their Senior Farewell and Freshman Welcome party on Sunday, June 6th at the park at 5:00 pm. Supper will be served. There will be a short meeting to start the night and new officers will be elected.

A DIGITAL SIGN is being considered to replace the sign on the NE corner of the church. A poster has been made and is in the back of church this morning. Donations from memorials and/or members is how the sign will be paid for. Any comments or suggestions may be given to the committee members: LaDonna Stanosheck, Randy Pfanstiel and Deb Gutz.

Nelson and family for the donation of $1588 made to Mission Central distributed to them to help them deploy to Southeast Asia, where he will serve as a regional Theological Educator.

SERMON “The Joy of Ascension!” Luke 24:51-53

 

WE WELCOME EVERYONE who has worshipped with us this morning. We hope you will be able to worship with us again soon.

OUR READER for this morning is Paul Koehler and next Sunday our reader will be LYF member, Kaden Polt. Helping with communion this morning are Larry Krohn and Ed Brummels.

 

CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Caden Wingert and Kaden Polt. Next Sunday they will be Mason Gansebom and Karter Johnson.

THE VOTERS extended a Divine Call on April 25th to Pastor Caleb Kruse, Associate Pastor at Lord of Life Lutheran Church, Elkhorn, NE to be pastor here at Immanuel. Please hold Pastor Kruse in your prayers as he considers this call. Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide him in discernment as to where he might better use his gifts in the Church. A decision should be reached by May 23rd.

CHRIST CANDLE, standing near the pulpit, has been lighted for Sunday services since Easter morning. Because the Christ candle symbolizes the presence of the resurrected Christ with His Church, it is lighted from Easter to Ascension. Today, Sunday after Ascension, we observe with Ascension Day hymns, prayers, and sermon. However, since Ascension marks the bodily return of Jesus to the right hand of the Father in heaven, we do not light the Christ candle again until next Easter, except for the very special services such as baptisms and funerals.

ADULT BIBLE CLASS continues the series, “Dangerous Teachings of Christianity.” Today’s topic will zero in on miracles. Do miracles happen today? If they do, how do we explain that to unbelievers? Since every class is a “stand alone” unit, you can join class anytime and pick up the discussion. We often say today, “That was a miracle,” was it really?

NEXT SUNDAY Pastor Erik Christensen, Associate Pastor at Grace Lutheran Church, Wayne, NE, will lead worship and adult Bible class. Pastor Carl and Darlene will be in Collinsville, Illinois for the confirmation service of grandson, Andrew. While Pastor is out-of-town, Pastor Jerome Leckband (402-992-0509) is available for any pastoral emergencies.

PASSING THE OFFERING PLATE is more than a ritual! The passing of the place gives opportunity to physically place our first-fruit gifts into the service of His Kingdom. In addition to singing, praising, and prayers, our offerings are acts of worship. The bringing of the gifts to altar, acknowledge that we take from our bounty and return to the Lord, literally putting them on the altar that they might be used wisely. We thank and praise God that we are blessed to take another step toward the normal life of the church.

QUILTING LADIES will meet Monday at 1:00 p.m.

A DIGITAL SIGN is being considered to replace the sign on the NE corner of the church. A poster has been made and is in the back of church. Donations from memorials and/or members is how the sign will be paid for. The committee is considering this a mission project. Any questions may be addressed to the committee: LaDonna Stanosheck, Randy Pfanstiel and Deb Gutz.

Robert Mayes of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Beemer, NE and Zion St. John Lutheran Church in Wisner, NE, delivers the message “The Most Unusual Defense” based on John 17:11b-19. These shows air today beginning at 10:00 AM on KCAU-9 TV out of Sioux City.

MOTHER’S DAY is observed throughout the United States. In the beginning, God established marriage and families. We thank God for Christian mothers, grandmothers and women who take seriously the special task of raising families. “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her” (Proverbs 31:28). May God bless specifically Christian women seeking to follow His will.

The central teaching of the Bible is that dead people can live. Since the topics of each Sunday are “stand alone” questions, you can join class anytime. But don’t miss today’s class, it is a question of life and death.
