Announcements for March 21, 2021

immanuelosmond | 19 March, 2021 12:23

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. Wednesday evening the reader will be Ross Stelling and next Sunday our reader will be LYF member, Connor von Rentzell. Helping with communion this morning are Larry Krohn and Ed Brummels.

CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Caden Wingert and Spencer Hille. Wednesday evening they will be Matthew Alderson and Kaden Polt. Next Sunday they will be Molly Beacom-Timmerman and Riley Wagner.

ADULT BIBLE CLASS continues the study: “Dangerous Teachings of Christianity.” Since each class is a “stand alone” unit, you can join class anytime and pick up the discussion. Today’s dangerous topic is CREATION. The Bible teaches that God, in the beginning, created the world and universe, “out of nothing” (ex nihilo). Did you know that pure science demonstrates the exact same thing? But, since most in the scientific community have a deliberate predisposition against creation, the scientific facts are dismissed. Even Albert Einstein introduced a “fudge factor” into his discovery of General Relativity that permitted the continued teaching of chance. In light of scientific evidence, there are only two choices: One, no one created everything out of nothing, or, two, someone created everything out of nothing. There is no other choice. If you know of another choice, come to Bible class, and make your case! The divine creation of the world is such a dangerous topic that it causes otherwise intelligent scientists to dismiss all the facts and grab hold of wild speculation (it is truly sad, but funny!). Today’s Bible class will be EPIC, giving you something to talk about this week at the Mini-Mart.

CONFIRMATION RECOGNITION will be held tonight, March 21st beginning at 6:30 p.m. Pastor Lilienkamp will be the speaker. Confirmands received invitations for themselves and their families. Also, leaders of the organizations have received an invitation in your bulletin box.

MEN’S BIBLE STUDY will meet again this Thursday, March 25th at 6:30 AM. Men, young and old, are encouraged and invited to the study time.

CHOIR will meet at 8:30 AM next Sunday, March 28th, then sing at 9:30 worship. They will also practice on Wednesday, March 31st at 7:00 PM and on April 4th, Easter Sunday, at 8:30 AM and sing at the 9:30 AM Easter service.

THE PAINT COMMITTEE would like to thank everyone who helped paint all the walls in the church. What a fantastic job you all did!!

SUNDAY SCHOOL OR BIBLE CLASSES will not meet on Palm Sunday or Easter Sunday. WHAT ABOUT BOOK have been revised and are available for you near the bulletin boxes. These books are easy to read and explain what Lutherans believe and teach about topics important for today.

SERMON SERIES FOR LENT & HOLY WEEK: The 40-day journey of Lent began on Ash Wednesday.. The Lenten services will use a weekly recitation of the Six Chief Parts of Luther’s Small Catechism. By reviewing the parts of the catechism, we can re-affirm the faith that we confess and live. The sermons will focus on the atoning blood of Jesus. These sermons will challenge us to cling to the Sacrament of the Altar where the body and blood of Christ are given for us. The sermon themes are as follows: March 24 @ 7:00 PM: “The Blood That Sanctifies” Hebrews 13:9-16 April 2 @ 7:00 PM: Maundy Thursday: “The Blood of the Covenant” Exodus 24:3–11 April 3 @ 7:00 PM: Good Friday: “A Rich Burial” Isaiah 53:9 April 4 @ 6:30 AM: Easter Sunrise: LYF message (followed by LYF Breakfast @ 7:30 AM) April 4 @ 9:30 AM: Easter: “With Him through Death” Daniel 3:1–29; 1 Peter 3:17–22; Matthew 27:57–66
