Announcements for July 4, 2021

immanuelosmond | 02 July, 2021 09:44

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

OUR READER this morning Paul Koehler and next Sunday our reader will be Ross Stelling. Helping with communion this morning are Ed Brummels and Larry Krohn.

CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Kenzie von Rentzell and Ella von Rentzell and next Sunday they will be Riley Wagner and Brianna Kumm.

TODAY, along with most Americans, we thank the Lord for our bountiful nation. July 4th is often called “Independence Day.” We know why July 4th carries that name as our forefathers declared independence from the homeland, England. The name Independence Day is misleading for Christians. Today, we should call July 4th “Dependence Day.” Our biggest problem in the United States today results from not being dependent on direction from God’s Word, Bible teachings and His grace. May God, through the work of the Holy Spirit, lead us to be dependent upon HIM. Enjoy a blessed 4th with your family.

THE FLOWERS on the piano this morning are given by the family of Margaret Broekemeier in honor of her 92nd birthday which was this past Thursday. God’s blessing on your birthday, Margaret.

BAPTISM WILL BE HELD TODAY AFTER BIBLE CLASS for Henry Douglas and Asher James, sons of Daniel and Anne Wiese. Henry’s sponsors are Mario and Meg Jaquez. Asher’s sponsors are Spencer and Courtney Bradley. God’s blessings to them as they become members of our congregation and heirs of God.

ADULT BIBLE CLASS continues the 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, the most humorous story in the Old Testament. See you in Bible Class!

MEN’S BIBLE STUDY GROUP will meet this Thursday morning at 6:30 AM. The men’s group enjoys a lite breakfast, fellowship, study, and prayer. This Thursday, the group continues the study on selected psalms. The book of Psalms passionately touches the human heart because it expresses the emotions of the human heart. Psalms touches our hearts today because we have the same emotions. Now is the time to join a lively men’s study group. See you Thursday morning at 6:30 AM.

SIGN-UP SHEETS FOR FOOD FOR VBS are now in the back of church! Please consider helping with this project. Thank You!
