GREETINGS FROM PASTOR CLAYTON: Dear brothers and sisters in Christ at Immanuel, my name is Rev. Kirk Clayton, and Immanuel has been led by the Holy Spirit to issue me a Divine Call to serve as your pastor. You have been in my prayers since the Call was issued, and my family and I are carefully considering this Call. We have been encouraged by the steadfastness and strength of the congregation as we have sensed it in the Call Documents and in conversations with those associated with Immanuel. My apologies that we have not been in contact with you sooner, we were on vacation in Glacier National Park when you issued the call, and did not have internet or cell phone service for a while. However, even without the ability to communicate with you, you have still been in our prayers. I hope to come visit through the middle of the coming week to get to know you better, and then be better prepared to discern the Lord's guiding in the Call. Here is a little bit of information about myself and my family. I am the son of a Lutheran pastor, and I grew up in four LCMS parishes in Missouri and Minnesota, all of them in rural farming communities. I graduated from St. Paul's Lutheran High School in Concordia, MO in 1991, and then attended Concordia University in Chicago, majoring in music education. After teaching music in central Missouri, I attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, graduating with my M. Div. in 2000. I served as pastor of a mission congregation near Peoria, IL for 5 years, and now I have served in Mascoutah, IL, a rural community about 30 miles east of St. Louis, for the past 16 years. My wife, Lori, and I have just celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary and are blessed with six children ranging in age from 7-20. Our oldest son is a student at Valparaiso, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and also taking organ lessons. Our second son will start at Concordia, Chicago this fall in the pre-seminary program. All of our children are involved in music, both singing and playing various instruments. We are a close-knit family and love spending time together. Please keep my family in your prayers as we seek the Lord's will for all of His Church. God's peace and blessings be with you! In Christ, Rev. Kirk Clayton

GREETINGS FROM PASTOR CLAYTON: Dear brothers and sisters in Christ at Immanuel, my name is Rev. Kirk Clayton, and Immanuel has been led by the Holy Spirit to issue me a Divine Call to serve as your pastor. You have been in my prayers since the Call was issued, and my family and I are carefully considering this Call. We have been encouraged by the steadfastness and strength of the congregation as we have sensed it in the Call Documents and in conversations with those associated with Immanuel. My apologies that we have not been in contact with you sooner, we were on vacation in Glacier National Park when you issued the call, and did not have internet or cell phone service for a while. However, even without the ability to communicate with you, you have still been in our prayers. I hope to come visit through the middle of the coming week to get to know you better, and then be better prepared to discern the Lord's guiding in the Call. Here is a little bit of information about myself and my family. I am the son of a Lutheran pastor, and I grew up in four LCMS parishes in Missouri and Minnesota, all of them in rural farming communities. I graduated from St. Paul's Lutheran High School in Concordia, MO in 1991, and then attended Concordia University in Chicago, majoring in music education. After teaching music in central Missouri, I attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, graduating with my M. Div. in 2000. I served as pastor of a mission congregation near Peoria, IL for 5 years, and now I have served in Mascoutah, IL, a rural community about 30 miles east of St. Louis, for the past 16 years. My wife, Lori, and I have just celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary and are blessed with six children ranging in age from 7-20. Our oldest son is a student at Valparaiso, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and also taking organ lessons. Our second son will start at Concordia, Chicago this fall in the pre-seminary program. All of our children are involved in music, both singing and playing various instruments. We are a close-knit family and love spending time together. Please keep my family in your prayers as we seek the Lord's will for all of His Church. God's peace and blessings be with you! In Christ, Rev. Kirk Clayton

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 Ross Stelling and next Sunday our reader will be Paul Koehler. Helping with communion next week will be Larry Krohn and Ed Brummels.

CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Riley Wagner and Brianna Kumm. Next Sunday they will be Zaylah Pfanstiel and Erin Wagner.

ADULT BIBLE CLASS this morning will continue the study series on the book of Judges. The Old Testament book of Judges is very contemporary for our lives today. A repeated phrase in Judges is: “Everyone did what was right in their own eyes,” and that phrase pretty much describes life in the United States today. Join Adult Bible Class to explore how God’s people handled life in similar circumstances to today. In addition, the book of Judges has some very interesting accounts, perhaps, most humorous story in the Old Testament. See you in Bible Class!

THANK YOU to the family of Vernon and Donna Gansebom for the new cabinet in the kitchen for roasters, etc. Also, thank you to Ross Stelling for building it.
