Announcements at Immanuel

Announcements for October 23, 2016

immanuelosmond | 21 October, 2016 14:53

WE WELCOME EVERYONE who has worshipped with us this morning, especially our guests. We invite you to worship with us again soon.

 

THE CANDLE LIGHTERS for this morning's worship service are Hannah Gutz and Shelby Stelling. Next Sunday they will be Hailey Johnson and Madeline Huwaldt.

 

OUR READER for this morning's worship service is a LYF member. Next Sunday the reader will be Kent Gansebom.

 

WASHING OF REBIRTH: Lakyn Ann Simpson, daughter of Beau and Rachel Simpson, born September 14, 2016 will be brought into God's Kingdom of Grace through the washing of Holy Baptism in our service this morning. Melissa Timmerman, Alex Guenther, Jake & Robin Claussen will serve as sponsors. We thank the LORD for making Lakyn His child and heir through Holy Baptism, and we pray that she will continue to live in her baptismal grace all the days of her life, and into eternity. God bless you, Lakyn.

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL: Today the children will learn about Gideon. A very important element in this lesson is how God is at work in the story of the Israelites versus the Midianites. Gideon defeated the Midianites with an army of 300 men. They were outnumbered nearly 450 to 1! That's beyond comprehension! But God does things in usual ways to make a point. Too often we Christians think that we have to do something in order for our success to be achieved. Most often this happens when we think about our own salvation. Sadly, we miss the point in this story that it is God who secures the victory, and it is God at work in our lives to secure the victory for you and me. Even little victories in our everyday living can be attributed to God. We all need to begin to see this and give God the glory for His work on our behalf in our lives!

SUNDAY SCHOOL: "Deborah" Through the unlikely acts of Deborah, Barak, and Jael, God freed His people from the tyranny of sin and death. Ever since God told Satan that his head would be crushed by the heel of Eve's "offspring," the devil knew his undoing would come through a woman. Even as he defeated Eve through deceit, so through one of Eve's daughters his defeat would come. Deborah and Jael are two examples of Old Testament women who foreshadowed the Virgin, through whom everlasting victory would come in the promised offspring, Jesus.

Everyone's volunteerism and donations, are appreciated. Thank you to those who trimmed cards at home as well. We know the finished cards will be a blessing to those who receive them.

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL: "The Fall of Jericho" is this week's lesson for the students in Sunday School. Through His servant, Joshua, God gave the Israelites victory over Jericho by causing its fortress walls to fall. Through Jesus Christ, God gives us victory over our enemy, Satan, causing the fortress of sin and death to fall and assuring us that we are His people.

Whatever our own "Jericho"- our piety, our successes, our spiritual resume – whatever walls in which we take pride, those walls must come down. For our own good, God takes them down. He reveals that His is all we need. All we need we have in Him in abundance. Christ is our mighty fortress, our defenses, our shield, and He in whom we take refuge.

The Distribution: (The Lord's Supper is celebrated at this congregation in glad confidence that our Lord gives to us not only bread and wine but His very Body and Blood to eat and drink for the forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of our union with Him and with one another. Our Lord invites to His table those who trust His words, repent of all sins, and do not refuse to forgive and love as He forgives and loves us that they may Proclaim his death until He comes.

We are genuinely interested in the spiritual welfare of all who worship with us. We, therefore, respectfully ask all guests who desire to commune with us today, first speak with the Pastor or the elders before the service begins. For further study on this sacrament see Matthew 26:26-29 and 1 Corinthians 11:17-34.)
